OOW10 Bloggers Meetup… and the winners are…

I’m happy to announce the winners of this year’s t-shirt and creative blogger’s contest at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 Annual Bloggers Meetup. Asif Momen, of the Momen Blog was the big winner of the HP X310 DataVault. Although there wasn’t as much participation as I had hoped for the creative blog post contest we have not one, but two AppleTV winners to announce; Sunil S. Ranka for his post: Mapping the Maze, Online Bloggers to Real World Faces: Pythian Blogger Meetup at OOW10 and Mr. Chet Justice, Oraclenerd for his entertaining, 5 part series from the meetup. Definitely an “A” for effort – could you tell he really wanted the AppleTV?
