CNET Maker Faire contest

CNet is running a contest to give away 20 passes to Maker Faire San Mateo, May 30-31, 2009. Here’s what “Geek Gestal” columnist Daniel Terdiman says about it:

The event’s organizers have given me 20 passes to award CNET News readers. And all you have to do to win one is tell me, in 150 words or less, how you would use DIY to remake America (the event’s theme).

It’s a broad topic, I admit, and I’m sure there are an infinite number of ideas that could win. But in order to pick the best 20, I’m going to turn to my celebrity judge, MAKE magazine senior editor Phil Torrone.

So, send your 150-words-max ideas to me at daniel(dot)terdiman-*at*-cnet(dot)com by May 8 (please include the words “Maker Faire contest” in your e-mail subject line, as well as your full name in your e-mail), and maybe I’ll be seeing you at Maker Faire.
