#whymax Video Contest Winner!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Congratulations to Scott Ysebert @endoplasmic for his winning entry:
I always hate it when I hear a judge say how hard it was to judge–but it’s true.  I’m still very surprised how few entries I received–just realize, all those who did enter put in effort ranging from WAY MORE to WAY WAY MORE than those who didn’t even bother.  Compared to many contests, this one had one of the best ratios of investment to payoff.Keep in mind that for the next 10 days (starting tomorrow) I’ll pick another winner from those currently posted to award a VIP seat (for attendees to sit very close at the keynotes).  (Believe me when I say this is more valuable than most non-MAX-goers understand.)

I carefully stuck to my original criteria–you can see the results of the top 5 finalists here:

Next time I might add some categories, like “funniest” or “most views”, “most ratings”, most twitter votes, or just my personal favorite.   In any event, I hope everyone had fun and will consider entering a for the VIP tickets.
