As you may know, MIX is coming up very soon – March 18-20 at the Venetian in Las Vegas. You can find the full details on the conference at It’s an unmissable conference, now more than ever, and if you haven’t had the chance (or the budget) to sign up, I have a free pass to the conference to give away. Note that it’s just a conference pass, and that hotel, airfare etc. are not included. Still it’s close to a $1400 value, so why not? :)image

Still interested? Good!

Take a look at the Deep Zoom image below. If you can’t see the IFrame, you can also link to the image directly here.

I was close to somewhere pretty famous when I took this picture. It’s a place I’d always wanted to visit, and I was doing some research on the general area for a book that I was working on. This big guy snuck up on me, scared the life out of me, and I got into my car and drove off. I figured nobody would believe my story so I took a quick snap of him. Sorry it’s blurred! I was wearing a bright red jacket (just like this one!) too. There’s an implicit clue in this story, as well as some joke-clues in the picture itself.



So, leave a comment with your guess for where you think I was when I took this picture. If you guess right, you’ve earned yourself a pass for MIX. Please remember that it’s only a conference pass and not airfare, hotel, meals or anything else. If you can’t attend the conference, but want to guess anyway, go ahead!

  • Are you in Boulder, near the University of Colorado? That's the first thing that popped into my mind.

  • Joshua Tree National Park, perhaps?

  • I'm going with Pamplona, Spain.

  • Did my guess of Area 51 in Nevada get lost? Abducted by aliens, perhaps?

  • How about Yucca Mountain in NV.

  • Yucca Mountain.  Everybody loves nuclear waste.

  • I'll give the answer out on Monday (along with another riddle).

    The first person who has it right (maybe it's one of you guys here, maybe it isn't), will get first pass at the pass.

    Keep 'em coming...

  • I'm not sure if my answer posted so here it is again...

    Is it Vienna Austria?

  • I stand by my suggestion of Joshua Tree National Park or vicinity.  Dare I suggest you were watching the soccer match against Sweden in Carson, CA?

  • I'm thinking it's Whistler Blackcomb, BC.

  • How about Death Valley?  "Scared the life out of me?"  No?

  • Some great guesses here, including a few that made me chuckle.

    Remember, even if someone has guessed what you think the answer is already, don't be afraid to post it, because it could be right, and someone who guessed already may not be able to go to MIX.


  • Random guess (from the bull and the jacket)...

    Calgary, Alberta, Canada - new the rockies.
