  • A short bio about yourself
  • 3 example daily posts written in the style of Hack a Day

Hack a Day T-Shirt Contest winner

Congratulations to [John Keppel] for his winning t-shirt design. He wins a Dash Express, an in-car navigation device with both cellular and WiFi data support.

Thank you to everyone that entered!
