I just found a way cool steampunk contest over at Dvice (part of SCIFI channel). Design a steampunk cylon and you can win Battlestar Galactica goodies. Here are some of the details…

Cylon Background: The Cylons were created by the people of the Twelve Colonies. Intelligent robots, they were used as slaves and soldiers to fight humanity’s wars. But the Cylons became sentient and they rebelled. Man and machine fought to a bloody stalemate, then the Cylons withdrew to a remote region of space. A truce between the Twelve Colonies and the Cylons lasted for 40 tense and silent years. Then, on the 40th anniversary, a stunning blonde a Cylon in human form met the human envoy¦ moments before the Cylons vaporized the station and launched a genocidal attack on the Twelve Colonies.

Now DVICE gives you the opportunity to create Steampunk Cylons to win prizes. There are many examples of steampunk design contemporary objects re-imagined as if they were built in the Victorian era.

Design a Steampunk Cylon: Entrants must create an image of what a Cylon from the “steampunk” era would look like. You can use graphical software (such as Photoshop), draw or paint your Cylon, or you can physically build the Cylon and photograph it. You then submit the image(s) of your design to Please do not exceed 1 megabyte per image! Your entry should also include your full name, date of birth, phone number, physical address and a valid e-mail address.

We’ll also accept entries for creations in the general Battlestar universe (steampunk ships, steampunk devices, etc.), although our preference is for Cylons.

Employers are looking for ways to reward good work other than a monetary bonus. While many of us certainly don’t mind the money it can seem like a thoughtless gesture to some. There are many alternative ways to reward your employees one of the more exciting of the different corporate incentives is travel rewards from Bellwether Rewards.

The thought of getting away from it all could certainly motivate even the most lethargic of employees to improve their performance. There is no better way to put a spark back into an employee than the promise of time away from work, especially when they don’t have to pay for the vacation. Heck, I’d even do a better job if I were told there was a real reward in it for me.

So reward your employees by telling them to go away (by using their earned travel reward from Bellwether).

User generated television is the primary goal of, but unlike AcceptibleTV they are not asking you to create mini television series they want your life story. You get to tell your story to a world wide audience via the website and to a TV audience based in Texas. I am not sure if the television series is or will be going national. In any case you get to have your fifteen minutes of fame thanks to YawpBox TV.

Unlike other online video sharing sites YawpBox offers up its content in categories. You choose which story you want to submit then upload original videos, photos, audio, and blog content then community members vote on your submissions. If you rate high enough from fellow Yawpers your story just might find its way to the YawpBox TV show. According to their website the magazine style TV show is filmed live in front of a television audience in Dallas, Texas using your content, your stories. Not simply reposting a clip from your local news shows without their consent.

The key to this site and I assume the television show too is to use community members stories, photos and video not to be a dumping ground for other people’s copyright material. Thus far it looks as if needs help in that area as all I could find were photoshopped images, pictures from other sources and video commercials. The best video on the site that I could find was of a couple doing a dance routine at their own wedding. Heck Lex and Terry give you some great homework assignments via the national radio show and TV program so come on folks put on those thinking caps and take up their challenge. YawpBox needs your original content so get to posting. This idea has potential but from what I can see the users are not living up to it at this time.

Fiskars Project Orange ThumbI already knew Fiskars made great scissors, but I did not know they also made gardening tools too. According to their website they are offering a grant to gardening groups to help with community beautification and education. The program is called Project Orange Thumb. (Get it? It is a cross between the company’s colors black and orange — and having a green thumb. Get it now?) Only groups are eligible for this grant. So if you know of or are part of a gardening group and you have a project that is geared toward community involvement, horticultural education, sustainable agriculture, or neighborhood improvement you are invited to apply for the grant. No individuals are allowed to apply, as this is a grant for groups and not a sweepstakes. This is a great opportunity for schools, garden clubs, camps, youth groups, or other clubs.

Applying for this grant sounds almost as much fun as winning it. You have to completely describe your idea and goals for the project and what you hope to accomplish with your project. If you win you have to keep a journal, write in gardening blogs and photograph your group and project. (Sounds like a great way to get a bunch of bloggers out of the house and into a garden.)

So what do you win for all your hard work? Your group will get $1500 worth of Fiskars gardening equipment and $800 in garden-related materials. (I assume that means plants, seeds, soil, mulch, fertilizers and the like.)

Fiskars Project Orange Thumb So show the world how green you can be and go out and make your neighborhood more attractive. Who knows this could be you next year.

Dec 032007 has a great contest. They are currently running the “All I want for Christmas Giveaway“. Between December 3rd and the 7th you can win gifts for yourself and five of your friends from the fine folks at

Since my accident Christmas isn’t going to be full of presents this year. That’s for sure. This contest lets you pick the one item you would really love to have from their website each day for five days. Each day you get a chance to win the gift you chose for that day. But that’s not all. At the end of those five days you get a final chance to win all five gifts! It gets better too. If you win and have sent invitations to the contest to five friends they win too. Winning this contest would make my Xmas a lot more cheery. I net it would yours too.

I would love an LG LCD TV. We go to a local sports bar to watch the games on Sundays and they have these all over the place and they are just great. That would be my first choice if I could have anything from the whole store. My next choices would be accessories to go with it like the Toshiba HD-A20 high definition DVD player, the Canon HV20 HDV Camcorder, Sony VAIO N395E/B Notebook, Xbox 360 Premium Bundle with an extra Headset and finally something to watch on it — The X-Files Ultimate DVD Collection.

Talk about a Christmas wish list. There is nothing on there that I could afford but I certainly would enjoy winning them. I will be sending five really good friends a chance to win too, because if I win they win too. Sweet deal.
