Not able to join us at The Joslyn tonight for the inaugural Silicon Prairie Awards? Not a problem. You can still indulge in plenty of Awards fun from afar.

We’re streaming three hours of tonight’s event live for your enjoyment. Coverage kicks off at 6 p.m. with our resident Joan Rivers — um, me — interviewing Awards guests from the orange carpet. At 7, the awards show and community celebration gets under way. That portion of the night will feature brief remarks from the Silicon Prairie News team followed by the unveiling of the 12 Silicon Prairie Awards winners, with a keynote from TechStars co-founder and CEO David Cohen sandwiched in between.
