Get your tickets now for the Crunchies

Tickets are now on sale for the Crunchies, the sixth annual gathering of Silicon Valley around cocktails and awards for the best tech on the planet. Don’t miss your chance to see the best and brightest minds and products our industry has to offer this coming January in San Francisco.

We’re proud to be part of the Crunchies along with our friends at Techcrunch and Venturebeat, and can’t wait to see the rest of you too. Nominations opened up last week in a number of important categories — such as Best New Startup of the Year, CEO of the Year and Best Technology Achievement.

So don’t forget to nominate your favorites (do that here!), and don’t forget to buy your tickets now. Nominations close at 11:59pm PT on December 6, 2012. We’ll announce the finalists on January 3, 2013, and open up the final round of voting then. (You’ll find all the rules here.)
