Wow…holy cow – there were 323 entries into the giveaway contest in the last seven days for the Withings WiFi Scale. Which is just simply incredible! I definitely appreciate all the comments made, especially the ones about the blog!
When the giveaway it closed at midnight (just a short bit ago here on the East Coast), the cutting began!
Earlier in the evening I had converted the comments into a massive spreadsheet, and then spliced out each entry, plus the extra entries (twitter and blog mention). Each entry included the exact date/time so I could easily reference it back to an actual human.
After that was all set and the clock struck midnight, the printing began – and many pages later (and a run to find more printer paper), it completed:
The next step – the cutting out of hundreds upon hundreds of individual items. This would mark the only non-enjoyable part of the giveaway. Thus…I outsourced this. To the Girl.
I explained that I had an ‘Arts and Crafts’ project, if she wanted to help out. She was thinking glue sticks, construction paper, and perhaps some sewing. So she happily agreed. Excitement like a little kid in grade school.
So off she went to get her scissors and start on ‘the project’.
Until about a quarter of the way through the cutting out of each and every individual entry. At which point she started to mutiny. Mumbling something about wanting to play with colorful glue sticks and magic markers.
I offered to get her an Oreo cookie.
She ignored me and kept on cutting…
Finally, the time came for the drawing. I contemplated walking outside and asking a random impartial runner along the path in front of my place to pick a number out of the hat. But then I realized it was 1:00AM – I might not like who I ran into (or runs into me). The next option was my two turtles, but getting them to pull an entry out of a hat may take a really really long time. So that left…The Girl. She did the actual pulling of names.
And thus…the pulling:
And the winner is:
Congrats to Mark (at 8:25AM on June 2nd)! Please e-mail me (my e-mail is on the sidebar) so I can get your goods shipped off to ya!
(And, just for fun, we pulled a second name…ya know, just in case Mark doesn’t claim it, which was Nick Barnwell. Nick – you may now begin to say: Ugh!)
And, even if you didn’t win – you can still pickup the Withings Scale and enjoy it anyway.

Thanks for entering/commenting, and thanks for reading! I’m looking forward to doing something like this again…

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products.
