As a Maker Faire sponsor, Laughing Squid has a few extra tickets, so I thought it would be fun to have a little ticket giveaway contest.
Here’s how it will work:
1) I’ll ask some triva questions in this blog post about about a few of the Makers who will be at the Maker Faire.
2) The first person who leaves a comment on this blog post with the correct answer, will win a free ticket to the event. It’s an actual printed ticket (not electronic) and it is good for one day’s admission to the event, either Saturday, April 22nd or Sunday, April 23rd.
4) I’ll contact the winners for their mailing address so I can send them their ticket via US Mail. Make sure you include a working email with your answers in the comments. If a winner lives outside the Bay Area, then we may need to make other arrangements for their ticket.
5) The contest will run today, Tuesday, April 18th and Wednesday, April 19th.
