For fun, and to celebrate a colleague's hilarious line, "I *heart* POJOs", I am hosting a contest on my tech blog.

Essentially, readers are invited to answer whether or not they love (*heart*) POJOs... the best answers (from each country) will win a sticker (which is modeled by random people in bars ;-)

Check out:

FWIW, there is no gain on my side: it is actually costing me $ but my blog is committed to breaking blog boundaries.

The contest starts on 6/12 and will go for a couple of weeks or so...

ps. on the blog post, there are photos of the stickers with people from a particular gender, if that appeals

future contests may have both genders, if there is enough interest.... i'm biased!

An entry used that... I read it for a longtime before it hit me.

I guess I'm not as geeky as I thought.... I love the '*heart*' though because it embodies the vibe of MySpace/tweenieboppers... hilarious.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
