Sawhorse Media, a movement to make it easy to find the right people on the social web through products including Muck Rack and the Shorty Awards.

The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media; past winners include Ricky Gervais, Cory Booker, Conan O’Brien, Sesame Street, Neil Patrick Harris, Mike Bloomberg and NASA.
Sawhorse Media has created rapidly scalable platforms for curating social media as a reaction to the overwhelming amount of data generated by the realtime web.
