The nominees must have contributed substantially to the health, growth, accessibility, or freedom of computer-based communications. The contribution may be technical, social, economic, or cultural. Who can submit a nomination? Anyone may nominate a potential Barlow recipient, and you may nominate more than one recipient. You may also nominate yourself or your organization.
