Winners: Web 2.0 Expo NY Competition

Earlier this week we ran a competition for 2 full tickets to the New York Web 2.0 Expo conference 16-19 Sept. The tickets are valued at over $1000 each and we also have a consolation prize of a free Expo hall pass (value $100).

To be in to win one of the 3 prizes, we asked: for the ‘Web Meets World’ charity auction at the Web 2.0 Summit later this year (5-7 Nov), what would YOU bid on that web celebrities could offer? The 3 best answers, subjectively chosen by the RWW team, are printed below.

Janni Black (comment #19) wins one of the full passes, for this suggestion:

“I’d bid to send three web celebrities on a week long trip to visit AIDS orphanges in Malawi, Africa, with the condition that they would write web articles about these two things upon their return.

A. Their experiences with the children and orphange operators while there.

B. Their ideas on how “Web 2.0″ can make a huge impact on really, really big problems like this.”

The second full pass goes to Andraz Tori of Zemanta (comment #11):

“I’d bid for very first versions of business plans of MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo, Google, WordPress, Skype, eBay, …

Comparing them with where they are now would be a fun and very very interesting reading!”

And for the consolation prize, we liked this suggestion by Alex Capece:

“A Metallica CD signed by Shawn Fanning.” (comment #37)

Congratulations to all of the above, we’ll be in contact by email regarding your prizes.
