Congratulations to the winners of Microsoft give-away!
An amazing 235 entries were received in answer to “Why should Microsoft send YOU to Interaction11?” between Tuesday evening and noontime today, Friday. (Microsoft was giving away three complimentary registration passes.)
Entries were reviewed solely on content. “We were very impressed by such enthusiastic participation. In our review, we looked for people whom we believed to be truly revealing of themselves and who would add to the larger conversation; people we all would like to meet at the conference.” The field was eventually narrowed to 26 favorites from which a random selection was made and then the names were revealed.
The winners are…
- Aurea de Souza
- James R. L. Martin
- Juan Rafael Lopez
These three lucky individuals have been notified by email and will have until 12 noon U.S. Eastern Time on Monday, January 24 to confirm they will attend. Three runners-up were also selected (but not notified) in case one of the winners is unable to accept.
Diamond conference sponsor Microsoft thanks IxDA for their assistance in facilitating the give-away. And IxDA thanks Microsoft for their generous patronage!
UPDATE: All three winners have accepted and are now registered to attend. IxDA and Microsoft thanks everyone who entered.
