Boing Boing Ingenuity: Win free tickets!

Charlie choc factory golden ticket

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.

Boing Boing: Ingenuity in partnership with Ford C-Max.

    While this could be an interesting event to attend, making the tickets available primarily through a shameless social marketing scheme seems unlike Boing Boing and thoroughly reprehensible.

    Follow boingboing on Twitter and tweet as though you're linking a story, not participating in a contest? I would think Boing Boing better than buying Twitter followers and references in tweets...

  2. Does anyone else find a big disconnect between contests which should be "no purchase necessary" to enter, and demands for public social media shilling - something that very much delivers value?

    "Oh no, you don't have to purchase anything, but you do have to come down to our offices and work for us, free, for a day."
