ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Where: San Jose, California, USA
When: March 30-April 1, 2010
How: Send me an email with either a limerick or haiku that is coherent (meaning it makes sense when I read it and isn't just jibberish) and includes the word "where".
I'll pick the first 2 coherent & particularly clever submissions to repost on this blog and winners will be notified via email. (If you don't want your name posted with your winning submission, not a problem. But if your submission is particularly clever, maybe you'll want your name on it. Your call.) Winners must provide their own transportation, accommodations, and so on.
Dirty details: There's no cash value or transfers on this pass, so don't plan to sell it to the highest bidder on eBay.comments powered by Disqus
