Just an update, no kitties were harmed in my quest for a trip to SXSW (South By South West) in Austin Texas.
Huge thanks to NokiaSA for sponsoring this great trip and a R25k advertising contract. Very glad I've finally been vindicated for saying nice things about my many Nokia handsets through the years.
The competition entailed using the Nokia App wizard to create an app showcasing your blog, and was open to all South African bloggers, and the app with the most downloads for the period of the competion won. I actually first heard about the competition, reading iMod so I probably owe those okes a thank you too. So if Chris from iMod ever reads this thanks dude! Everyone else go subscribe to his RSS feed you'll end up in Texas.(worth a try at least)
I'll be in Texas next year, just in time for my birthday hanging with the pro-bloggers and rubbing shoulders with tech industry big wigs and just generally living la vida loca. I still can't believe my little blog app won running against some really great SA blogs, I guess that old saying is true, every blog has it's day.
