Update: If you win this VIP Starter Deck, of course you also get a BETA Invite to Akoha.

So since everyone is giving away all kinds of schwagg this time of year, I thought that I would jump on the bandwagon. I’m giving away an Akoha VIP Sarter Deck to one lucky commentor. The deck is a Fall 2008 Edition, and includes 24 Real-World Mission Cards.

For those of you who don’t know what Akoha is, it’s a web-based game with reality-based play (very cool), and it’s designed to make the world a better place by changing the way people think about acts of kindness. But you can find out more about that by watching the video interview below with Akoha founder, Austin Hill.

For now, I’ll tell you how can win. First, comment on this post telling me either (1) why you deserve an Akoha VIP Starter Deck, (2) a dirty Christmas (or Hanukkah or Festivus or whatever) joke, or (3) why you think I am (or am not) one of Canada’s most influential men in social media (you can also VOTE FOR ME HERE).

Then, like a veritable Santa Claus, on Christmas mornning, I will arbitarily pick the winner according to my groggy, hung-over, and sleep deprived whim without any regard for merit, democracy, or random luck whatsoever.

If you want to learn more about what Akoha is all about, check out this interview with Austin Hill that I shot at Podcamp Montreal this past fall. That’s where I actually got my grubby paws on the starter deck; I’ve just been too lazy and unappreciative to use it. And if you’re wondering how Akoha plans to actually make money, check out this other art of our conversation where Austin discusses Akoha’s revenue model — and find out how they intend to (1) move actual merch, and (2) add actual value to existing marketing channels.

  1. I’m game, or should I say I want to be. I’d love to receive the Akoha deck. Sounds like this is right up my alley, both in terms of what I do on social networking and my vision to use it to change the world. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hey CT… I would say you are one of the world’s most influential people in social media, and would not restrict it to your homeland or gender!

    How was that for sucking up? I would love a deck of Akoha cards, and would most certainly spread the word around Chicago as well as my other corners of influence.

    Happy Merry!


  3. I don’t think I know any dirty Xmas jokes, instead, I will give you a clean joke:

    Why do they polish the tanks in Helsinki everyday?

    To protect the Finnish!

    As you can see, I need to get out more.
