A few super-hip folks (Automattic, Wall Street Journal, and HostGator) are hosting a WordPress party with open bar and all-you-can-eat BBQ on Friday night at SxSW (deets here) but it’s invite only and there’ll be a list at the door. (We can only feed so many people!) However I have 15 spaces to give away to Ma.tt readers, which will go to the first 15 people to comment with a link to an image of the WP logo in a cool place (Photoshop allowed) and your WP-powered blog.

      1. Now that I think about it, I don’t really think I could make it at all; I just live too far away.

        Maybe next year…

      1. Sweet. They will need to decide which one of the team will go. Should I post the name here when they decide? Or, I can have them tweet you?

      1. Dear Matt, thank you very much for your answer. The simple fact that you considered and accepted my proposal for this contest is such an honor to me! This reaffirms my belief that there is a better world thanks to new technologies, where creativity leads to success. To know that I have got the ticket to attend the SxSW party makes me feel a first class world citizen. Thank you very much! I live in CΓ³rdoba, Argentina, and I travel with and Italian passport that grants me a visa waiver when entering the US (no visa required). The only problem is that I won’t be able to afford the airplane tickets to Austin. Is there anything you can do about it?

      1. wait a second…i was too busy shaking my fist in the air at gillian that i didn’t realize i got threaded into the wrong comment.

        gillian — toss your pass over the wall once you’re inside? πŸ˜‰

  1. Does naming WordPress count? That is like having a WP logo in a creative place … my brain!!! (I’m sorry. I can’t show you that.)

    Mike will be along for the ride at SXSWi this year, so I would be a party of 2.

  2. Ok, wait. I changed my Gravatar just so I could have WP on my brain. Well, on top of my head. πŸ˜€ Hopefully that counts! Looking forward to seeing you in Austin!

      1. Yup np Matt. Just threw that together real quick hoping it wasn’t too late. I’ll stick a real one on & snap a photo a little bit later.
