ImageIt’s been a very interesting few weeks. The ideas have been plentiful and wide ranging in the My Mac Server Contest. Before we announce the winner, a few notes:

  • There are a lot of Mac users who are interested in helping others. The non-profits and service oriented projects were intended to help so many different people. It’s refreshing to hear.
  • For those who entered but didn’t win, we do hope to work with you still. As mentioned earlier, anyone who entered the contest is eligible for one free month for whatever machines they colocate with us from now until the end of April. Just make a mention on signup that you were a contest entry.
  • I feel like I have a pretty good handle on the different technologies, but I learned so much from the entries. So many of you are working with such interesting projects.
  • We did receive some notes for moving the contest up a bit and that’s understandable. As I mentioned to those who wrote in, the sole reason was that the entrants were so plentiful that it was taking a lot of time to sort thru them and we were afraid that our current customers weren’t getting the attention they deserved. I think the 6000 entries contained most who wanted to enter, but if you were left out just let us know before the end of the month and we’ll still offer the colocation special to you.

So without further wait…the winner is Nathan Brennan in Cambridge, MA. As you might expect with any great business idea, Nathan asked us to keep this one private until he is ready to go. My guess is that it will be of interest to many of you so we’ll be sure to announce it here when it’s ready.

So Nathan, your Macbook Air is on the way and your Mac mini is ready to go.

For the rest of the entrants, thank you so much for participating. I hope we’ll get to work with many of you in the future.
