SXSW 2007 Interactive Pass Contest
That's right folks, just a little over two months to go until 'south-by' kicks off. The interactive component is, of course, what many of us will be heading down for but I know a few people sticking around for the music. (Incidentally, it's really easy to tell the music attendees from the interactive attendees from the film attendees.)
So, I've got an Interactive Pass up for grabs but I'll get to that in a bit. (What, are you in a hurry or sumthin'?)
In what has undoubtedly become the yearly geek pilgrimage, SXSW is a great opportunity to meet a lot of great, smart, fun and talented people. 2006 was my first year and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was stuff going on every night and I literally spent each lunch and dinner with a different group of people. Oh, and there's panels where people talk about stuff.
Once again, Bryan Veloso is organizing his Avalonstar Bowling Extravaganza which is shaping up to be bigger and better than last year. I highly recommend you sign up if you can make it out.
Last year, I think we confused all the local college kids as a mass of drunken geeks had pretty much taken the place over their bowling alley. This year, if enough people sign up, Bryan expects we'll be able to rent out an entire alley for the night. Fun times.
Oh, and of course, I helped Bryan by putting together the backend for it. My little contribution to help enable some good times!
My own panel submission didn't make it through to the end but it's nice to know that I'll still get a chance to present.
Want to go?
So, all that lead in for this: I have an Interactive Pass up for grabs! That's $275 worth of fun. But, of course, there's a catch! I'm having a little contest:
The "Design a Snook.ca T-shirt so I can go to SXSW contest!"
That's right folks. Between now and Friday, January 12, 2007 23:59:59 EST (GMT-5), put together a design for what you think should be on a Snook.ca T-shirt. It can be funny, it can be serious, it can be whatever you want. Post a link to your entry in the comments of this post. Entries will be reviewed over the weekend with the winner announced Monday, January 15th.
Grab the Snook.ca logo in EPS format.
(And if you think it's too late to go, there's plenty of hotels within walking distance of the conference center still available.)
