See, we told you that the Streaming Media Readers' Choice Awards are always a source of surprises. This year's winners, which we announced earlier today at Streaming Media West in Los Angeles, include plenty of familiar names, but just as many names that are either new to the awards or new to their categories. If nothing else, the list of winners provides a snapshot of who's making the most noise in the online video space in 2011, and it's not always the "usual suspects."
