24 Hours to go – Clock’s Tickin’ as Proposals Surge

February 27, 2009 - 0 Comments

Hey, all. Another day to go for Phase-1 to close. Tomorrow is it (I’m writing from a PST timezeone and it is not midnight yet).Boy – do people wait for a deadline to really get going. We’ve seen a tremendous surge of proposals come in during the last 72 hours. We’ll summarize some of the statistics and thoughts from the contest early next week, but looks like our contestents are keeping themselves busy and are planning to keep us busy the next few months . Over the past 4 months we’ve had an exponential rise in registrations and proposal submissions, and we’re bracing ourselves for the exciting time when we begin evaluating the proposals, determining finalists and sharing with the judging committee. We’re also getting a cross-section of judges with diverse industry experience to help evaluate. It’s going to be fun.But more on that later. For now, if you’re still working on the proposal, keep an eye on the clock and make sure it comes in before the deadline tomorrow – February 27th, 2009. All proposals coming in after the deadline, will, unfortunately have to be rejected.
