A longggggg time ago -  back right after we disclosed C# - I was in San Francisco for one of the early meetings of the bay area .net user group.

My publisher (Apress) had given me some swag to give away, but I don't like the "survival of the fittest" mode, so I sat in the back during the first hour and wrote some trivia questions. The winners got their pick of the swag, and it was a great warmup for my talk.

Anyway, I was thinking of that recently, and I thought it would be nice to do a version on my blog.

But I need some more good questions. That is where you come in. Please send me some questions, I'll fold them in with the questions that I have, and then I'll present them in a "one per day" format.

The questions should be something that can be determined through publicly available information, though entertainment is more important than accuracy, if you get my drift. What curious thing did you find out? What do you know that other people don't?

I'll see if I can come up with some swag for the people who send in the best questions.

Sound good? Okay.
