It was an exciting year, we covered new areas such as Travel, we got more into Mobile. It was certainly the year of Social Media as Jamaica and the Caribbean woke up to it big time. The year also gave us an inkling as to what will be happening this year and we believe it will be the Caribbean startups and the entrepreneurs behind them, that will be the stars of SiliconCaribe and the Caribbean in 2011. They are seeing the possibilities, doing things differently and no longer see their geographical location as a hindrance but as a matter of fact and a jump off point.
These are our top stories for 2010 and we culled this list based on the combination of the number of likes, comments,tweets and that days spike in readership. Enjoy the ones you’ve missed and relive the joy of reading the ones you’re familiar with. Happy New Year to you all.
