Here’s a hint that puts you one simple step from a $5 coffee card in our trivia challenge

For those stumped (or annoyed) at yesterday's Trivia Challenge, I say: keep trying. Let's give you a hint.

The organization that launched the Catalyst Awards is TechNet.

Answer one more of the other three questions correctly, and you've earned a $5 coffee card. How hard is that?

We posted the quiz yesterday on this blog; it was our way of saluting the awards, which are handed out more or less annually. The winners were posted yesterday, also.

Now for a bit of caviling. The original purpose of the Catalysts was to call attention to tech companies and tech leaders in the community. Does it look like it's strayed off target, now allowing non-tech firms or groups to earn the prize?

In a word, yeah.

When that drift occurs, why have them, since the community has other awards for business, such as the Agora Awards? End of screed, now back to our regular programming...

To come in with a winning entry for the coffee card, simply post an answer below or e-mail with the subject "Catalyst."
