The winner of the Kindle Fire is:
Jason Kneese, manager of Outman’s Cigar & Martini Bar here in Greenville!
Out of 9459 entries into our #LeapIntoIT Kindle Fire giveaway, Jason had only a couple, but his retweet of our post was the lucky one that did it.
I would like to thank everyone who took part in the fun and silliness, and also make a statement – We are not doing this again, at least not this way!
It took me a good solid two hours to compile all the data into one big excel file so the winner could be selected. I can find no automated way to mine the data I need from the various sources such as:
Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Google Plus, Google Places, Merchant Circle, Yelp, FriendFeed, email mailing lists, blog posts, etc, etc, etc….
Next time we do this, it will encompass one action, or maybe we could use a professional giveaway service. I would love to hear your thoughts on how to do it!
Thanks again, it was fun, at least up until the end!
