On Sunday, August 18 in San Francisco, Boing Boing: Ingenuity will bring our site to the stage of a former Masonic Lodge for a mind-bending theatrical experience of performances, presentations, curiosities, and wonder! Participants include Adam Savage, Tom Vanderbilt, Barn Owl, Nate DiMeo, Megan Prelinger, Ariel Waldman, and many other brilliant minds. See the full line-up here! I call it vaudeville for Happy Mutants! It's free but tickets are very limited. Want to come?
We have a handful of tickets to give away! Here's how to win them:
1. Follow @boingboing on Twitter.
2. Pick your favorite Boing Boing post about something ingenious and tweet the URL @boingboing with the hashtag #happymutants before 11:59pm PT tonight, Wednesday 7/31.
3. We will select the winners who will then be contacted directly with event registration information.
4. Please only enter if you definitely will attend the San Francisco event, Sunday 8/18, from 10am - 4:30pm!
And if you don't score tickets this round, don't worry! We will give away plenty more in the next two weeks! Stay tuned. Get illuminated.
