Elsewhere: Gift Guides and Free Stuff

Go read Tech Gifts for Smart Kids over at WePC. All these gadget guides gigs (GGG) are making me want a cooler camera. And a robot helper monkey.

Over at Lifescoop, you can win a $50 Amazon gift card simply by supplying a clever caption for a photo of me licking William Shatner (a warm embrace to Jon Armstrong for his Photoshop skills). This is not a random drawing, it’s an actual contest of wits, which you have in abundance. I encourage you head over and comment because hey, free stuff. Also, is anyone else a little astounded at the favorable odds in these blogging contests? That’s not something you think about a lot, is it. Just me then.

In conclusion, Shatner!
