Since posting this message on the 27th of August, I have received six comments on my blog entry. All six were in support of creating a Satellite IOTA award. I appreciate those that have taken the time to leave the comments however I'd really like to go to the IOTA board with more comments.
I will start drafting a letter this weekend to send to the IOTA board on Monday. If you had planned on submitting a response and hadn't had the time or forgot to do so, please take a few minutes and leave a comment. The blog can been seen at <http://eric-sparks.blogspot.com/2007/08/official-iota-satellite-award-petition.html>.
