Mobility and the Connected Life

Mobility and the Connected LifeMy partners on the service provider side of the Cisco house are sponsoring a contest called “Help Design Your Connected Life.” We are inviting entries from people (ages 13 and older) to participate.The idea behind the contest is to generate innovative ideas for a connected life (one of my favorites, using your cell phone to pay for your Starbuck’s coffee). 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.
