A technological breakthrough that has had an impact on the usefulness and thereby use of the Internet. Last year, the award went to Bjarne Stroustrup for inventing C++. There is not a single computer or mobile phone or router or car or airplane or train or modern factory or office in the world that is not build on C++. If you manage to find an exception, then it is build on something that is a copy of Bjarnes ideas.
SERVICES AND/OR APPLICATIONS
An application or service that has led to the spread of Internet use. Last year, the winner of this prize was Queue-it co-founded by CEO Niels Henrik Sodemann, CCO Camilla Ley Valentin, and CTO Martin Pronk. Queue-it is a cool solution that impacts many Danes, specifically the use of it in the SKAT homepage.
An idea that has led to the Internet being used for non-commercial purposes within the fields of sustainability, democracy, citizenship or diversity. Last year, the award went to Kirsten Sydendal for her work with The Facebook group ‘Lolland Falster Lovestorm’ that has been born out of a continuously bad image of Lolland Falster being shown by the media. The initiative and the lovestorm is a great example on how you can mobilize an entire region through the digital possibilities - and best of all, it has all been made possible without spending any money on ads or external help.
