Winner – Politico: The least connected people in America

  • Contributor – Margaret Harding McGill
  • Judges’ Comments – Politico, with painstaking detail gleaned from consummate on-the-ground reporting, highlights how the lack of broadband internet access is disproportionately harming Native American populations and how — once again for this historically oppressed group — poor federal policy and planning are largely to blame. This is a classic example of reporting on technology — or lack thereof, in this case — is affecting everyday people, and how the government and businesses are struggling to remedy it.

Honorable Mention – Forbes: Seller’s Remorse

  • Contributor – Parmy Olson
  • Judges’ Comments – An excellent profile that dives into important technology topics and had immediate impact when published. By exploring existential angst over selling WhatsApp to the world’s largest social media network, Acton presciently channels — and Forbes deftly unpacks — the rising tension among consumers about the privacy in their online lives. A fantastic read.
