    he Webby Awards, like the Oscars for the Internet, selected local software development agency Very Big Things as a nominee among more than 13,000 entries. Now South Floridians can help Very Big Things win the People’s Voice Award.

    This honor recognizes Very Big Things in the apps, mobile and voice category. VBT, a team of 32 based in Fort Lauderdale, was hired to develop a mobile dating and social app for LOOSID, a sobriety-focused social network. LOOSID is a first-of-its-kind community with a mission to bring the fun back into sobriety. In addition to providing a suite of recovery tools, the platform facilitates offline connectivity among members for dating, travel and local events.

    While the academy picks its Webby Winner in each category, every Webby finalist contends for The Webby People’s Voice Awards, which is voted on by the public.
