Win a Free Ticket to Maker Faire Answered

Maker Faire is coming soon and we're going to be there. Will you? If you want to go, but haven't gotten a ticket yet, then check out this contest over at CNET where they're giving away 20 tickets to the event.

Read the details below. It can't take you that long to write about DIY and America, right? Go for it and let us know if you win one.

The event's organizers have given me 20 passes to award CNET News readers. And all you have to do to win one is tell me, in 150 words or less, how you would use DIY to remake America (the event's theme).

So, send your 150-words-max ideas to me at daniel(dot)terdiman-*at*-cnet(dot)com by May 8 (please include the words "Maker Faire contest" in your e-mail subject line, as well as your full name in your e-mail), and maybe I'll be seeing you at Maker Faire.

UPDATE: This is for the Maker Faire in California, not Texas.

Not at all! I genuinely appreciate the non-flaming of the newbies. I don't always practice it, but I appreciate it...

well, even if you do enter, its still 20 tickets. Most ppl here would try to enter. If you have an alternative way to get free tickets, keep us posted fungus, because only 20 ppl can win.

Really? Looks like the only comments here are about how they don't live in the area. If you do enter, your odds are probably pretty good. If you don't enter, your odds are absolutely zero.

Lol, im actually pretty close to where maker faire is hosted. But I dont plan on a visit to Austin (If I went to texas, it would be to Dallas to see my uncle), so even If I won, I wouldnt be able to go. I was just saying that so if you did find alternatives, it would help others who wanted to go.
