    Hi Everyone,

    Firstly I'm going to apologise in advance as I'm pretty sure the guys on here are going to go mad at me... but the comp is only open to the girls! 

    Secondly... I'm going to say I also have a discount code for 100 Euro off of the list price to the Expo Conference... so if you are interested in going and want the discount then contact me via the girlygeekdom blog

    And finally!  Girls if you are interested in the competition then please go to the website and read all the details!

    Best of luck!

    Sarah

    ps I'm hoping you don't all shout at this and call it spam, I saw it as an opportunity to get more of the C9 guys getting the girls involved with the scene as well as getting the girl students involved a bit... I'm also hoping that this will get passed along to the other relevant MS groups to pass the details out to the students.  (I can but live in hope!)

    Might be worth highlighting to someone at Channel 8 (http://channel8.msdn.com/About/Default.aspx) as the official Microsoft "Place to be for Students" Smiley

    Which we ignore because the original is always better.

    Ooh, I'll pass that on to a few girly geek students I know. Sure they'd enjoy the opportunity.

    This brings up something I've been looking for an answer for. What exactly is "WEB2.0"? People talk alot about it and various sites call themselves 2.0 but all I see is a few fancy graphics embeded into HTML webpages just like everything else. I've heard people say it might be IPv6. I've heard it might be interactive...but web1.0 was interactive. I've seen .php sites that primarily use flash and call that web2.0. I guess I just don't get it. Can you guys explain to me just what web2.0 is? and how it's differant from web1.0?

    Channel 8 is not a new Channel 9 or some derivation... Channel 8 is another channel on our network that aims to provide students (technical students) with a place to have a voice and impact the technologies they use to conduct their daily business of learning. If you are a student you are always welcome on Channel 9. Channel 8 is a place that is specifically designed with you in mind, whereas Channel 9 is a more general purpose avenue into the Death Star.

    The irony... Free tickets and offer to find a way of funding travel expenses and not one student has dared to put in an entry!

    Well if the student girls don't want it then someone else will get it! Wink

    I've not decided how I'll give the tickets away if they don't enter... any suggestions?

    I know, for a fact, you've got at least one entry coming as I was sat in the pub with a couple of girly geeks who were working on their entry last night. They'd even got someone to sponsor their travel costs if they won....
