Back when I ran Info Demo, there was a contest. The contest was called the "Guess What Is in the Boxes Contest." As people arrived, they had the opportunity to write their guess for what was in each box on a slip of paper. At the end of the show, I would review each guess. The winner for each box, the guess that most perfectly (in my sole estimation) captured the essence of what was in that box, won what was in the box. One wag sagely suggested to other participants, "So guess something you want!"

I have decided to do the contest again. There will be one box, and guesses will be accepted via Twitter. I will mail the actual prize within the United States, winners from outside the US will receive a certificate with a picture of the prize. Sorry! I will post more information about this contest soon - right now I am in Illinois at my sister's house and can't really get this all set up. But I am very excited about this - it should be fun.
Also, I would like to call attention to my new motto, up there under the title. I am pleased. My last motto (which was not on this blog) was "Our cause is just, our methods are for sure!" and had been getting a little wear-worn, so we can all thank the van shuttle service called "Rochester Direct" up in Rochester, MN and their motto "Moving people into the future" for the inspiration they give to me.
More on the contest soon !!!
