Is anyone going to this? It's in New York City from August 12 -14. Tickets are 'only' $549. But don't worry if you can't afford that because John Chow is giving you a chance to win one of ten tickets he has to give away. All you have to do is make a great comment on his posting to be in with a chance of winning the prize.
Do be sure to check out the terms and conditions which apply.
Damn! I was so confident of winning, I booked my flight and hotel room on the strength of thinking I'd get a free ticket to the event. Now I guess I'll just have to hope it's not going to be popular or well-attended....the pass codes become invalid in the event the conference sells out.
It doesn't seem like a very nice way to run a competition. Hey! You can win this 500 buck prize! (But only if no one else wants it.) Hmph.
