It was really hard, but Sarah and I recorded a special announcement about this new prize we're giving away. It's the first ever Unofficial, Unsanctioned Social Media prize and it was important enough that I didn't swear for 10 whole minutes. You don't want to know how many takes it took and then how many swearwords I had to edit out.
Anyway, the short version is that we're running a bit of a fundraising effort to put together a (mostly) cash prize for the pro woman who makes the best use of social media in a couple of the remaining races. The prize will be decided by a vote from a pool of nominees (you can totally nominate someone and vote!).
So we're soliciting your help in identifying riders, voting and of course in putting the prize together. It's always kind of awkward asking people to donate, but if you can it'd be greatly appreciated. I'll even love you forever, and as umwolverine will happily tell you, my love is a rare and valuable commodity. In case my undying love isn't incentive enough, Sarah and I are going to make sure all donors are recognised and rewarded. Check out the video after the jump for all the details (spoiler: I dare majope to send me Cabin Boy Jens fanfic).
All ideas, suggestions, nominations, votes and handwritten letters sealed with wax are gratefully accepted.
And of course, I'd take it as a real personal favour if you could coerce your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, pets and strangers on the street into donating as well.
In case you hadn't already found it, the donations page is here.
