Of course, most free giveaways have a catch. In this case, it’s a contest.
At the beginning of the month, I posted on O’Reilly’s Graphing Social Patterns East. It’s a conference closer to my coast, in Washington, DC, that takes place on June 9-11. Bub.blicio.us readers can save 15% off registration with the code gspe08bbu.
I still want to go. I’m not attending, but we are going to make it a bit easier for you to attend. We’re giving away two tickets to the event (you must be able to foot the bill for your travel and lodging expenses).
We’ll decide on our favorite answer to this question:
What emerging social media application or trend will have the biggest impact on mainstream society?
Be creative! All answers must appear in the comments of this post by 5 pm PST on Friday, May 30. We’ll make a decision and get back to you by Monday, June 2. Make sure you leave a valid email address in the comments.
All contests need boring rules. Here they are:
***Only one attendee per pass (two people cannot share the same pass to attend the conference on separate days).
The prize is nontransferable and non-endorsable; no cash or other substitutions will be offered. Winner cannot sell his/her pass.
The winner must cover all travel and expenses. We are just providing the tickets.
The winner must provide full name, job title, company, address, phone, and email address.
The winner consents to the use of his/her name and/or likeness for publicity, advertising, and commercial purposes, in perpetuity, without further compensation unless prohibited by law. O’Reilly Media and its agents are not responsible for lost entries for whatever reason. Entries will be disqualified if O’Reilly Media determines, at its sole discretion, that entrants have attempted to circumvent the terms and conditions of these rules. All decisions by O’Reilly Media are final.
