Last year I had an idea: Create a really, really high quality newsletter. Reading technology related news is a daily and rigorous ritual for me, so why not take that effort and synthesize it into a curated list of “What to Read”? Many others are doing this, of course, but I felt the value for readers was to get it from your trusted technical advisor (I manage technology for a number of small and medium sized businesses). For many years this voracious appetite for news and information was only for myself, but I knew it was time to change that. Time to share this with the world.
We love contests. Really, who doesn’t like free stuff anyway? At Calwell we’re partial to giving away free tech gear. Last year, we gave away a Netbook to a happy Calwell reader. This year, we thought we’d try something a little different and offer an eBook reader to you wonderful regular readers of this blog. Read on […]
It has been a few weeks and this contest has finally come to an end. I reached out to everyone to guess the amount in my change jar. During this process, I realized this wasn’t an easy task either. In the beginning I had expected a perfect guess. Seriously, I really thought someone would give me the exact amount. While this was certainly possible – it turned out that none of the guesses I received were exactly right.
You may have read my earlier blog about winning a Netbook. I thank everyone who entered this contest and took a shot at winning this great little pc! After looking over all of the entries – there was no correct answer! I was surprised, since I expected that someone would get this.
I had an idea, why not see how this would go? I’m always looking for more people to read my blog, so I thought that if I offered you the chance to win something for spreading the word – you might appreciate it. No strings attached. I pay for the Netbook and I’ll pay for the shipping. If you don’t want to help spread the word, that’s fine too – you’ll still get a shot.
