Lending Club nominated as top innovator

Lending Club has been nominated as one of the Top 100 Internet innovators in the U.S. by the Industry Standard in the 'Commerce' category. Others nominated include Mint, Zillow, Farecast and Wesabe. The winner will be decided by popular vote and announced at the end of October.

Peer to peer lending companies have received many awards. Earlier this year, Prosper joined Amazon, Walmart, IBM, and others on Fast Company's 2008 list of the 50 most innovative companies. Prosper was also Time magazine's #1 website of the year in 2006 and one of the 50 best websites of 2007. At the 2008 Retail Banker International Forum, Zopa won the 'Most Threatening Non-bank Competitor.'

So, here's the question - if they win are they going to reuse the speech from their 2008 Webby?

Tom, thank you for your comment. I will definetly check out the http://byujc.org/ website. BYU is a great place, I actually met with the architect who designed it and he was fantastic. I hope that you are able to go and see BYU and experience as I and your wife did. I will be posting the pictures by the end of the day.
take care.

So, for anyone that is confused by this seemingly off-topic comment - my wife is publishing a book in a couple of weeks.
