I won a TiVo yesterday.

I won a TiVo yesterday. No really, I’m serious. They’re giving away 10 TiVo’s a day until Oct 31st in a 250-word essay contest. Not bad for 10 minutes work. If you’re interested, here’s my essay: Revolution in the Living Room, A One-Act Play by Jason Kottke

I think it’s great that TiVo is doing this contest, but they’re making a mistake by not posting the winning essays on their site. I imagine they’ll post them after the contest ends, but they’re missing out on exposing all the contest traffic they must be getting to all those pro-TiVo essays. They’d get a lot of return traffic as well; people checking back daily for the new winners.
