I think there was something else, but I need to get back to work. teasers for next time: trying to lose weight, signed up for a course via coursera.org, ...

Cover work -- spare a vote?

The creator of feedbooks had a quick challenge for a cover for Cory Doctorow's latest, "Makers". There were five entries. I'd _really_ appreciate a vote. Not that there's any prize whatsoever beyond my cover being used, but hey. =)

Voting here: twtpoll

Mine's the bit.ly one in the choices {{ the last choice in the poll }} :)
