We just got word that Trion World Network is a Red Herring 100 North America winner for 2009. The Red Herring 100 North America awards are given annually to the companies identified as being the most promising tech startups that will "lead the next wave of disruption and innovation."
Massively has mentioned Trion World Network a few times in the past in connection with their announced projects in the MMO space. Namely, we've pointed out their (original IP) Sci-Fi Channel MMO that's in the works, and "Heroes of Telara", a fantasy title that we should have more info about after the E3 Expo in June.
Congratulations to Trion World Network, and we're glad to see an MMO developer make the Red Herring 100 North America list of winners.
