Booooooom iPad Giveaway

Booooooom iPad Giveaway
The response to the giveaways has been insane lately! The two recent ones had more than 1,000 comments each!? I’m not gonna lie it’s been getting a little bit tough for me to go through so many entries every time, so I’m gonna try out a widget that should help me out!

To enter our giveaways you will leave comments as you normally would and the widget will also offer you a couple more ways to earn additional entries! More importantly for me, it will keep track of them all efficiently.

Enough dilly-dallying, I have a 16 GB iPad 2 to giveaway. Who wants it?

I actually have two prize packs to give away so there will be two winners, who wants ‘em?

Libratone Speaker Giveaway!
Our coolest giveaway yet comes from Danish audio company Libratone. They make high-end wireless speakers for iPhone, iPod, and iPad, and when I say high-end I’m talkin’ $700 a pop.

I gotta say I’m stoked to see someone from Booooooom submit the best entry to the Fresh Blood Hunt (in my opinion). This illustration by Ramsey Chapman is one of the finalists! There’s nothing in it for me if he wins but I’d love to see him take it!

Booooooom asks Monstrum

Future of the City

“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”

This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.
