Craig McCaw honored by SDForum

SDForum, an emerging technology association in the Silicon Valley, has named Clearwire founder and wireless entrepreneur Craig McCaw as one of the recipients of its 10th annual Visionary Awards.

This year’s theme was: “Mobile, Media and Entertainment.”

Each year SDForum honors industry leaders who have pioneered innovation and fostered a spirit of entrepreneurship. Former visionaries include Lou Gerstner, Bill Gates, Doug Engelbart, John Chambers, Gordon Moore, Ray Ozzie and Vint Cerf.

In addition to Craig McCaw, three others were named and will be honored during a private ceremony June 20.

The others were:

— Trip Hawkins, chairman and CEO of Digital Chocolate, which creates mobile phone games and social applications.

— Michael Moritz, who focuses on software and services investments at Sequoia Capital. Before joining Sequoia in 1986, he worked in a variety of positions at

Time Warner and was a Founder of Technologic Partners.

— Walt Mossberg, who writes a weekly personal technology column in the Wall Street Journal. He also co-produces and co-hosts D: All Things Digital, a major

high-tech conference that this year brought Bill Gates and Steve Jobs on stage for a joint interview.

The awards ceremony is held at a private home and is sponsored by Deloitte, Microsoft, Nokia, DLA Piper and Nasdaq.

Here’s a list of all the former winners.
