A catch phrase will go here soon.

Free MacBook Air — if I become the number one user on Twitter

3/15/2008

OK, I’m tired of getting my butt kicked by Robert Scoble and this Barack Obama guy on Twitter. Right now I’m the number five user (really #2 because the other three are software/Barack), so I’m going to buy my way to the top.

If (when?) I become the number one user on Twitter I will give my extra MacBook Air to one of the random folks who are following me. How we give it away will be determined in some fair way (i.e. random person obviously, but they have to be following at the time of the giveaway and they might have to respond to my tweet of them winning in a certain amount of time… like one hour).

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.

Other twitter accounts you can follow: Inside.com, Ticker, This Week in Startups and LAUNCH Festival
