Subject: Re: Help Us Nominate Apache Kafka for a 2015 Bossie (Best of OSS) Award - Due June

Sent! Thanks for letting us know of this opportunity to promote our
favorite Apache project :)

For inspiration, here's what I wrote:

Apache Kafka revolutionized stream processing for big data. There is a
dramatic growth in the number and variety of data sources an
organization has to track as well as new business requirements to
process and analyze the data in real time.
Not only does Kafka made stream processing a practical reality - by
integrating all data sources into a scalable and reliable platforms
that provides consistent streams of data for stream processing systems
like Storm, Spark and Flink to work with. Stream processing is
probably the most exciting big data innovation of the year, and it
would not be possible without Kafka to provide those streams of data.

Please don't copy-paste, but in case you want to help and feel
writer-blocked, I hope you get some inspiration :)
