The contest runs through September 14, 2007. The grand prize is $10,000 and there are ten runner-up $1000 prizes being given away as well. We are accepting both written and video entries. Note that Cisco employees (and their families) are not eligible to participate in the contest. Even those of us who blog!The “official rules” are here.So what do you think, do you have a good suggestion for the Connected Life?
