Settling For Second Place.

During last week when all the remote Telligenti were in the office, we had the first ever Telligent hack-a-thon.  The target of this coding event was to add any feature you thought Graffiti (A new CMS solution) should have. The hack-a-thon at first, was only going to be one prize, which went to the best hacked submission for Graffiti. However, after more than 15 great submissions, Telligent decided the top three submissions would get an 8gig IPhone.

Believe it or not, to my absolute amazement, Ken and I actually won the iPhone.  Ken and I choose to build a graphical web installer. During the development of the installer, we talked about what we would do if we won first place. We said that if we did get first place, we would split the cash.

I would like to say to everyone that contributed to the hack-a-thon, you did a spectacular job and all our contributions to Graffiti are awesome.

I would also like to thank anyone who voted for me.  I didn’t think I would have a chance of winning. Thanks for proving me wrong.
