There’s nothing like a little bit of controversy in tech circles, especially when it comes to mustaches. Our competition this month for the best stache in Seattle tech — as part of the Movember fundraiser — led some readers to question whether we knew anything about whiskers at all. (Obviously, given my lame attempt at growing a stache, I do not!)
One reader asked why we didn’t turn over the voting to the community, to which I respond: “You’re right!”
Let’s do it.
So, while we will continue to recognize Amazon.com software manager Aravanan Sivaloganathan, we’re also expanding the competition to include a newly-formed “People’s Choice Award.” The winner will receive two free tickets to the GeekWire Gala on Dec. 6th at McCaw Hall. Voting will end Sunday at noon Pacific time.
Happy voting (See images from all of our entrants below the poll).
