Hello Hackerspace Movers and Shakers!

My name is Chris Gammell. I was so glad to see that there was a listsrv of
people involved in hackerspaces across the world (so cool!). I'm interested
in telling you about a worldwide contest that many of your members may be
interested in participating in, if they have not already heard about it. Jeri
Ellsworth <http://youtube.com/jeriellsworth> and I are running the 555
contest <http://555contest.com>. It's a simple design contest with a very
simple definition what is required to participate. The only real restriction
is that your design must use a 555 timer (it can use many as well) and it
must fit into one of the categories we
decided<http://555contest.com/rules-and-categories> (which
are quite broad). We currently have over $4K in prizes and all sponsors have
told us they would be willing to ship anywhere in the world (a restriction
in some competitions).

I've said it elsewhere and I'll say it again here: No one running the
contest is profiting from it at all. We're really just hoping to showcase
some awesome designs and we're expecting many of them will come from
hackerspaces. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. And
thanks for reading!
