Caption contest winner: congratulations, Abhiroop Basu!

Caption contest winner: congratulations, Abhiroop Basu! published on No Comments on Caption contest winner: congratulations, Abhiroop Basu!

Congratulations to Abhiroop Basu. It was a tough field, but he narrowly edged out Jon Seymour’s “The consequences of failing to switch your device to flight mode prior to take off.”

A few other great entries from Noise to Signal’s readers:

  • Jess Sloss lends a new urgency to rickrolling with “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.”
  • Mary Skiba-Lofy’s warning will probably resonate with Amazon S3 customers: “Who knew cloud computing could be so hazardous????!!?”
  • Tim McAlpine has a sinister take on Twitter’s recruitment strategy: “Twitter continues buying spree. This time going beyond apps with the recent acquisition of both @scobleizer and @guykawasaki. Is @ladygaga next?”
  • John Erle Mundle gives us LOTR 2.0 with “Ring destroyed. Mount Doom in ruins. Can’t wait to see the Shire. Strange urge for strawberries and cream. #hobbitsftw”
  • Speaking of literature, Boris Mann evokes the white fail whale with “Call me @Ishmael”.
  • And in a similar vein, Boyd Neil gives us a fervent “Don’t *Fail* me now”.
  • Tris Hussey has a little career advice: “To my friends who thought being a social media consultant was for the birds…”
  • Mike Fitzsimon offers “Mums are right. Who knew? RT @KathysMum: Kathy, you are getting so carried away by this Twitter thing”.

And finally, via email (because he – gasp! – isn’t on Facebook), Eric Andersen submitted four grin-inducing suggestions, including this one:

“Wait,” Bob tweeted, “The Twittersphere is *between* the stratosphere and troposphere?”

Thanks so much, everyone, for the entries! And my thanks to Jordan Behan and Strutta for letting me take their Facebook contest platform for a spin.

Updated: Abhiroop blogs, “perhaps I should have putĀ @biz instead of ‘Biz Stone'”. POOF!

Help me choose a caption

Okay, folks, I need a quick bit of help.

The cartoon that ran yesterday on ReadWriteWeb actually originally had a different caption. And while I’m pretty pleased with the one it ran with, I can’t shake the question of which one is better.

I put this question to the Twitters, and the suggestion came back, “Crowdsource it!” Sounds like fun, thought I, and so here we all are.

Mind helping me out? Here are the nice people from SurveyMonkey to ask you to vote for your favourite.
