IBM Connect 2013: Coolest "Tchotchke" Ever

During the awesomely fun Great Geek Challenge (http://www.greatgeekchallenge.com/) I was fortunate enough to win this awesome prize during an individual round.

After attending fifteen Lotuspheres and one IBM Connect, this is by far the coolest thing I have ever brought back (#2 would be those yellow boxing gloves and #3 would be the software CDs we used to get back in the 90's).

Those guys over at the London Developer Co-Op (http://londc.com/) do great survival kit!  (I hear they're not too bad with technology either!)




I simply cannot pass up this opportunity to mention that I won this Most Awesome of Prizes by answering correctly after John Head answered incorrectly.

While waiting for the event to start, John took the opportunity to rather proudly let people know that his team was victorious in a previous event.  I plainly but confidently stated that a significant contributing factor to his prior success was my absence from the competition. John was unimpressed but, of course, you can't tell some folks anything they don't already know these days. <wink><grin>
