Hey Peeps, I don’t ask much of you, being that you’re mostly reading this stuff when you should be working, studying, or playing video games. But when I did ask something of you, you really stepped up. Here’s the evidence from Palm’s microblog:
CES 2007 Micro Blog: Final Contest and Random Drawing Winners
And the winners areâ€¦
Best job blogging about CES:
-Chris Leckness of Mobility Site
-Ed Kohler of Technology Evangelist
That’s right. With your help, I won a brand spankin’ new Treo Smartphone.
See, we really can make the world a better place if we all work together. It took a village to help me win this phone. Thanks for being a part of my village.
Palm is giving away a couple Treos to the top contributors to the microblog they ran during last week’s Consumer Electronics Show. I was one of eight contributors with enough posts to be eligible to win a Treo, but I won’t be able to win one without help from you. Don’t look behind yourself. I’m talking to YOU.
Here’s the beauty of this: voting earns you a chance to win a Treo too. Â
Just send an email like this:
To: microblog at palm dot com
Subject: Vote for Ed (Technology Evangelist)
Body: Your name and address.
If this isn’t clear, find more information on the Palm Microblog, or on Technology Evangelist.
I don’t know what the chances of winning are, but I imagine they’re pretty darn good. It’s certainly worth the time it takes to send a simple email.
