IDF ’10: Capturing Your Experience

The time has come and I hope your ready for a great IDF! If you've been keeping track of our chatter on Twitter or read our "We Would Like To Meet You" post, you've seen we're quite excited about this year's Capture Your Experience contest.

So, what's Capture Your Experience? It's an opportunity for you to share with us your Data Center experience at IDF. Show us your experience attending sessions, watching demos, chatting with your colleagues and catching a glimpse of Intel's data center experts. Need ideas of what you could do? Check out this video from this year's CES, where an attendee filmed their experience with Intel's Infoscape. That could be you, showing us your experience at the Data Center Zone, or walking the halls at IDF talking about the latest and greatest in data center technology.

Obviously we're not relying on you having a video camera at IDF, so we've partnered with Cisco to provide you with a Flip Mino HD just don't delay to sign up, we've only got 200 cameras. And to make things even tastier, we'll be awarding two lucky winners the Ultimate Home System. The Ultimate Home system consists of a Boxee Box, 55" HDTV, Atomâ„¢ based home server, and more!

So, what's the criteria? How are you going to be judged? Well, there's two chances for you to win: Judge Award or Audience Award. For the Judge Award, the judges will evaluate entries based on overall content creativity, content relevance to Data Center theme, quality of production, portrayal of accurate information and adherence to the 3 min time limit. The Judge Award will be announced at IDF and winning video shown before the 3rd day's Keynote.

For the Audience Award, we will rely on Intel's YouTube channel and have the YouTube audience judge the submissions. That's right, we'll turn this over to all of you to judge the videos, so make sure to spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues. We'll stop counting the "likes" and "dislikes" on September 24, 2010.

That's it! I hope all of you will join us, stop by the booth to say hello and give your video filming skills a try!
