Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2010 came to a close in San Francisco last week and what an experience!  Thanks to Cisco for providing their Flip MinoHD camcorders and participants in the Capture Your Experience Contest, there are fantastic videos on YouTube for everyone to see and share the experience!


Let The Voting Begin, Round 2!

We’ve reviewed the submissions, and picked our favorites, and boy it is hard to pick a favorite among all these great videos!  Now it is your time to decide. Which video captures the IDF 2010 Data Center Experience the best? Go to YouTube and vote thumbs up or down for your favorites by September 24 (9/24) to decide who is truly “data center dude approved!”



Our Judge Award Winner

As for our favorite you may ask?  Who is the judged winner you ask?  Well as hard as it was, we had to do our part and pick one, and that person is Chaim Gartenberg, with his straight to the source submission.



He is the lucky judged winner walking away with the Ultimate Home system consisting of a 55 Inch TV and Boxee box, and a home server with an Intel Atom processor inside.


We’ve made our decision, now it’s your turn, remember go to YouTube and vote thumbs up/down by September 24 (9/24) for the best video that captures the data center theme from IDF 2010!

The time has come and I hope your ready for a great IDF! If you've been keeping track of our chatter on Twitter or read our "We Would Like To Meet You" post, you've seen we're quite excited about this year's Capture Your Experience contest.


So, what's Capture Your Experience? It's an opportunity for you to share with us your Data Center experience at IDF. Show us your experience attending sessions, watching demos, chatting with your colleagues and catching a glimpse of Intel's data center experts. Need ideas of what you could do? Check out this video from this year's CES, where an attendee filmed their experience with Intel's Infoscape. That could be you, showing us your experience at the Data Center Zone, or walking the halls at IDF talking about the latest and greatest in data center technology.



Obviously we're not relying on you having a video camera at IDF, so we've partnered with Cisco to provide you with a Flip Mino HD just don't delay to sign up, we've only got 200 cameras. And to make things even tastier, we'll be awarding two lucky winners the Ultimate Home System. The Ultimate Home system consists of a Boxee Box, 55" HDTV, Atom™ based home server, and more!


So, what's the criteria? How are you going to be judged? Well, there's two chances for you to win: Judge Award or Audience Award. For the Judge Award, the judges will evaluate entries based on overall content creativity, content relevance to Data Center theme, quality of production, portrayal of accurate information and adherence to the 3 min time limit. The Judge Award will be announced at IDF and winning video shown before the 3rd day's Keynote.


For the Audience Award, we will rely on Intel's YouTube channel and have the YouTube audience judge the submissions. That's right, we'll turn this over to all of you to judge the videos, so make sure to spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues. We'll stop counting the "likes" and "dislikes" on September 24, 2010.


That's it! I hope all of you will join us, stop by the booth to say hello and give your video filming skills a try!
