"Name The Dude" Contest Winner

"Name The Dude" Contest Winner

As we mentioned in our last blog, we have a new outreach booth. When we got it all up and running, though, we realized … this poor guy doesn’t have a name. So we launched a “Name The Dude” contest onsite at ARIN XXV in Toronto and posted it via Facebook and Twitter. All together, we were overwhelmed with 55 suggestions. Wow!
