Tablet Guy give away contest
You’ve seen all the blog entries about the famous Tablet Guy. Well, I’m running a contest and will be giving away at least one Tablet Guy.
Here is the contest:
Write a short story that involves the Tablet Guy. Use your imagination. It can be as short as a paragraph or as long as 2 – 3 pages. My only requirement is that it contain no vulgarity or sexual innuendos. Submit your entry as a comment to this post.
I’ll review the entries and pick at least one winner. The winner(s) will receive their own Tablet Guy to proudly display next to their Tablet PC. I'll accept entries through 11/25 and then announce a winner by 11/28. Be sure to leave an email address on your entry so I can contact you. Feel free to anti-spam ( ex. rob at zoeinc dot com )
To help get your imagination going, here is a picture that Lora took:
Meetings, meetings and more meetings; it seems like it will never end. If I have to attend one more meeting, I think I will explode. I walked through the courtyard, on my way to another meeting when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. Turning to the right, I saw Tablet PC Guy drop from the sky, landing in the middle of the court yard. He waved me over and said he understood my frustration. He assured me that there was an easier way. At that point, he handed me a Tablet PC. I told him I already had a laptop and asked how this would be of any additional help. He smiled and showed me OneNote. After a few minutes, I was left with a smile on my face as I skipped across the court yard, towards my next meeting, and Tablet PC Guy flew off to save another, overworked and underpaid, IT guy.
As I walked into my latest meeting (the third of the day), I saw that the facilitator had a small micro recorder. He was planning on recording the meeting to make sure his minutes were accurate. That makes sense. I sat at the table, with my new tablet, using OneNote to take my own notes. Unknown to everyone else I was also recording. After the meeting, I went on about my business; another meeting.
Later, as I reviewed the days meeting notes, I was approached by the micro recorder carrying facilitator. He stated that his minutes were probably going to be incomplete and possibly late, due to a recorder malfunction. I looked at him and smiled. I asked him for a thumb drive and in a couple of minutes handed him a complete copy of the meeting audio, synced with the notes I had taken.
His minutes were completed ahead of time and with more detail than he was previously able to provide. Whew, Tablet PC Guy saves another day.
