“I’m a nerd, and I’m here today to stand up for the rights of other nerds.” Right now, TechCrunch is in a charity Turntable.fm DJ battle vs. Maxim magazine. Help me win it for the nerds, and the kids. Go to the MaxCrunch Turntable.fm room and click the “Awesome” button while DJ TechCrunch plays to help us win. Money raised by this Tech The Halls event benefits One Laptop Per Child, and helps ensure the next generation of nerds and entrepreneurs has access to technology.
Update: Victory for nerds and laptop-needing kids alike. The battle just ended, and the final score was TechCrunch 249, Maxim 119. Thanks to everyone who helped us raise money for this great cause.
Update 2: You helped TechCrunch win the whole event, and donated enough to buy the kids their laptops! Big thanks to everyone who listened and all the publications that participated. You can still donate to One Laptop Per Child here.
Tech The Halls is trying to raise $10,000 for One Laptop Per Child and give 50 kids their own laptop, and you can donate here. Your money goes a long way, as their rugged laptops are designed to last, and they help children get engaged in their own education.
I’ll be spinning some sweet rock, dance, and hip hop songs to liven up your Friday afternoon. If there’s a song you want to hear, write in the chat of the Turntable.fm and I’ll try to play it.
Let’s do this. Go to the Turntable.fm room, click “Awesome” whenever DJ TechCrunch spins, and lets get these kids some laptops.
