Where 2.0 is almost there, coming to San José, California, on June 13-14. It’s not too late to register, at $1,495 a pop, or you can try your luck with Ogle Earth: Where 2.0 Program Chair Nathan Torkington has kindly offered three free registrations to give away to Ogle Earth readers.
After thinking about it for a little while, I’ve decided that since this blog has a global readership, disbursing these three passes to the first three responses wouldn’t be fair, as at any given time fully one third of Ogle Earth readers are asleep:-)
So instead, for the next 8 hours, until 21.00 UTC May 26, 2006, please email one-off address firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in a free pass and you can make it to San José in mid June. Please write a sentence telling me who you are in the body of the message. Duplicates will be disqualified. Anybody is eligible. I will then run a random number generator and choose the nth email, thrice. (I’ll be announcing the winners.)
What I really like about this competition is that it embodies everything I stand for: Leave everything until the last minute, maybe you’ll get lucky:-)
(Much as I’d love to go to Where 2.0, I can’t make it, unfortunately. I’m moving to Cambridge (UK) for the summer to work on a new web development project, and can’t really wander off to California for a week. I’ll be blogging Where 2.0 vicariously, however.)
