The Old Technology Giveaway: Contest Results!
Finally, after carefully reviewing every entry (read: drooling for hours over old junk I wish I had), I have selected the two winners of this oh-so-close-to-tongue-in-cheek contest, and they likely come as no surprise to those who have been keeping up with their respective entries:
- 1st Place: Grant Hutchinson — Grant’s submissions were all terrific, and a little scary at times, but what won me over was his BeBox, a machine I’ve still yet to see in person, but wish I owned so I could play with it night and day (ok, getting a little freaky now…)
- 2nd Place: Emilio Vanni — While there were a lot of great submissions, I only have two prizes to award, and I just kept coming back to the Apple Baseball Cap hidden at the bottom of Emilio’s list. “But wait!” I hear you scream, “that’s a hat, not a piece of old technology!” My answer is simple: Tough noogies! Keep in mind, this is my contest after all…
I will be contacting the winners to arrange delivery of their prizes (remember: Grant gets first pick…), and hopefully they will be nice enough to send in self-portraits with prizes in hand.
Thanks to everyone who entered, commented, linked, or otherwise contributed to the OTG. More wacky contests will come as I think them up…
