We received some very interesting entries! I wish we had more that we could give away. The following are the winning entries. Congrats!
"I would use the back pack to carry my little dog around in. He rocks!!
Aaron Saikovski – Readify
"I’d use the bag for commuting. I do a bit of running and run to work each day. Imagine the perceptions we could smash if motorists saw a nerd running instead of them thinking we’re stuck in front of an Xbox with crumbs down our t-shirts all day"
Martin Harris – DET NSW
"Sometimes my wife makes me a yummy sandwich which I struggle to carry along, client visits!!" Kamol Sagwan- Avanade
"My wife and I both turn 30 next year, we plan to celebrate with a holiday to Uluru. The backpack would come to good use climbing the rock and also be a nice home for my notebook when we are not blogging about our adventure."
"Because I live in a rural area, there is a belief that professional IT support is not available. I take MCSE books to job tickets to educate the wider community against IT hacks & educate up and comers on the courses/exams they should be doing."
Chris – Caroll Secure Computing
"It looks like a versatile backpack. Not only would I be able to use it to cart work stuff (I commute 100 Kms daily) I’ve two young kids and going anywhere eg aquarium, public parks we need to seriously load up."
Romy Stevenson – Coles
"I would love a backpack that allows me to a) pretend my boss isn’t too tight to pay for a ticket to Tech Ed, and b) use a strap to hold my stomach in after eating too much at free Microsoft events (the only events I can go to)."
Michele Liva – DET NSW
"STUDY: Mandarin class Mondays so I need room for my Books, Pads, pens and pencils
WORK: Need to carry a laptop and phone home often
FITNESS: Running gear needs to be separate from my laptop and study.
Plus it looks like a cool backpack."
Paul Moorhouse – EDS
"The bag as my comfort to know that it’s my pillow when I need those naps (hopefully not during work), to defend and protect my laptop and gadgets should I accidentally drop them in despair and of course as a daily reminder to save up for the next Tech Ed."
Gavin Tan – Avanade
"I was busy hard at work trying to explain the intricacies of best practice to our customers. How could this be hard and why would a backpack help? Again! An easy answer, they are armed. So a nice swish backpack to tuck in my XPS would greatly assist in running."
Carl Bindels – QLD Police Service
