[Updated below with answer and winner] 

We’re challenging you to identify an especially obscure Tech Tune this week, but the prize is worth the mental energy.

Up for grabs is one ticket to join hundreds of your fellow geeks at ToorCamp 2012, the “American Hacker Camp,” taking place August 8-12 over on the Washington coast.

If you know the answer, send it to

Send your entry to for your chance to win the prize. Look or listen for the answer next week, and thanks for playing!

Apparently this was way too hard, because very few people got it right. Congrats to our winner, Amal Graafstra, who will be going to ToorCamp. Tune in next week for another installment.
