Below are my picks for Best of Demo 07, for what it is worth. These are my own personal judgments based on what I liked, what I thought had good business potential, or what just struck me as cool. It will be interesting to see how much — if any — overlap there is with the official DemoGod Awards (past experience suggests it will be very different).
