[GAS] “How to” Contest – And the winners are…

As promised last week, My friend Teresa drew the names of the 6 big winners for our “How to” contest last night. Here they are (Note to those of you who read us via RSS: A video is attached to this post):

1st place prize winner: Adam A. Hirsch with How To Be a Geek and Get Your Sexual Groove On.

4th place: Ingo Flink with How to keep you data save with Truecrypt

5th place: Douglas Karr with How To: Build An Image Map with CSS

I think everyone who participated in this contest got something out of the experience, but more importantly, I think that readers of [GAS] and the participant’s blogs got the most – as they learned to do something they may not have known they could do before.

I’d like to thank our sponsors, Chitika, GFI Software, Performancing.com, Mimoco and BlogCatalog for the fantastic prizes they offered. Without them, this contest would probably have not seen the light of the day.

Congratulations to everyone and thanks for participating!
