Want a chance at a free trip to the MIX 06 conference in Las Vegas next month and a cool custom XBOX 360? Then you ought to try your hand at "remixing" the MIX 06 website. Here's how it works. You download the CSS for the MIX site here, create your own inspired design based on the building blocks therein, and then submit it using the submission engine. The top 3 designs will get free admission to MIX 06, airfare, and lodging at the Venetian, plus a custom-designed XBOX 360. Pretty sweet.

Take a look at some of the designs that have already been submitted. Good stuff. I wish I had an eye for design, like these folks. If you're like me, don't fret...there's another contest over at http://microsoftgadgets.com/ that's geared more towards developer geeks.
