Win a ticket to Twiist

On May 15th, the first edition of Twiist will take place in Leuven (Belgium). Twiist is a one-day conference comparable to dConstruct and @media, unique in Belgium. Filip and Simon gave me 3 tickets to hand out. Continue reading to find out how you can win one of those.

Twiist Logo or The Way Internet Is Supposed To BE: we are organizing a one day conference for like-minded web creatives who want to know more. More about interfaces (user interfaces, machine to machine interfaces,…). We bring you an impressive list of top-notch international speakers who will share their ideas, all with the internet in mind.

If you want to see great speakers like Aral Balkan, Serge Jespers, Drew McLellan, Chris Messina, Elliot Jay Stocks, Brian Suda or Glenn Jones, and you live in Belgium (or close to Belgium), here’s what you got to do to win a ticket to the conference (travel and accommodation not included):

Take a picture of your desk like a twister just went through the room and post it in the comments (maximum width is 500px, you can post it using Textile)

Deadline to enter your picture is Tuesday, May 5th.

I’m already looking forward to the conference and the after-parties. Leuven is a great city with lots of small places to eat and drink.

    Sorry for the hiccup!
    Anyway: the picture above shows what the desk at home looks like. I’m afradi the office ‘Zen Desk’ was out of bounds for a contest like this :-)

    Apologies for my re-entry but I felt compelled to start all over again, not only because I desperately want to attend twiist, but more specifically because I had overlooked the ‘make-it-look-like-a-hurricane-just-passed-by’ rule!

    So I plugged in the hairdryer, let it loose and while the result is still only mildly chaotic, hope that this is more in keeping with the spirit required :-)
