Earlier this evening, I was notified that I won 4th place in the October 2007 contest for Community Credit.
In case you aren't familiar with Community Credit, it is a site operated by David Silverlight with the sole purpose of rewarding people actively involved in the developer community. Essentially, people compete each month to earn points by blogging, attending technical events, giving technical presentations, participating in forums, etc. Those with the highest number of points each month win a prize. It is an awesome way to encourage community involvement. To make things even more interesting, Community Credit is popular for the motto: "We give stupid prizes to smart people." I love the wacky variety of prizes that are given out each month.
This time I won the Plasma Light Disk. (Yes, I am a complete geek!) Here is the excerpt and image from Community Credit:
Pocket Plasma Light Disk energizes wardrobe
With a Pocket Plasma Light Disk clipped to your pocket, belt, purse, hat or anywhere you need to add a little energy. Uses super bright LED technology and microchip circuitry to create an amazing light show in response to touch or sound that makes the light "dance”.
