Wow, what a delightful surprise to see former InfoPath’er (and NetDocser) Adriana winning this award in her post-Microsoft life: 

That would be Adriana Neagu, co-founder and CTO at Formotus, who was named “Technology Innovator of the Year” in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

She’s one of several winners in the region.

Neagu was called out for inventing FormoPublish services, a simplified system for non-technical business users to deploy custom mobile applications.

Or the new Photo Gallery: You can also upload your Windows Live-enhanced photos to Flickr, the picture-sharing Web site run by Yahoo.
