Devot:ee Launch Giveaway Winners Chosen!

July 7, 2009
by Ryan Masuga

The 2009 Launch Giveaway winners were chosen yesterday and are being announced right here, right now. Complete with rare video footage.

The Devot:ee 2009 Launch Giveaway winners have been determined! The drawing was held on Monday, July 6, 2009 and we have 24 winners to announce. I thought I'd record the proceedings so you could also learn who the winners are that way (and see how they were chosen - no random number scripts up in here, no sir! Old school analog paper pickin' at its finest!), while I get more familiar with video and audio editing in Screenflow, GarageBand, and iMovie. I know your time is precious, so the video has been edited down to about 3:40 to keep things moving.

So, with that, you can either commence watching the short flick, or, if you just can't take it anymore, pop open the hidden area below to see who won!

Thanks to all of the sponsors, and congratulations to all of the winners. I will be emailing all of the winners soon. Thanks again to everyone who registered at devot:ee, and continues to show interest through your repeated visits and great suggestions.

Hm, the video seems to be private?

Ryan Masuga

Sorry about any problems with the video. It shouldn’t come up as private. I have it hosted at Vimeo with certain domain settings that allow it to play here. I have seen it come up listed as private too on a rare occasion, but a refresh usually takes care of it.
