Today we celebrate the PB Award, which is the highest honor a listener can earn. The PB award is named after the first big believer in 7 Cups of Tea – Paul Buchheit (PB). PB is mostly known as the creator of Gmail and the person responsible for their early motto “do no evil.” Most people do not know that he has the keen ability to see through to the essence of things. He often uses this ability to help make the world a better place. He immediately saw the potential of 7 Cups and was instrumental in our initial success.The PB award is a special award given once per year to a community leader who has gone above and beyond to support, honor and advance the 7 Cups community. This year it was decided that the Teen Coomunity deserved its own PB Award.Both of the winners are firm believers in the mission of 7 Cups!The winners this year are Anomalia and AmazingRea.
