Are you free for an hour on Wednesday, June 24th?
Last week, we announced that Google Apps and Virgin America are teaming up to host the first-ever in-flight and on the ground online scavenger hunt on June 24th. Thousands of people flying Virgin America that day will join people on the ground to take part in the one-hour challenge which consists of a series of puzzles and trivia questions.
The top 5 scorers will receive a "Year in the Cloud" prize package, which includes a year of free flights from Virgin America, free in-flight Wi-Fi, a netbook computer, and 1 terabyte of Google Account storage for Gmail and Picasa Web Albums. You can sign up to take the challenge by visiting www.dayinthecloud.com.
Just today, we revealed some practice questions on a new section of the website called The Prep and also added The Lounge where you can talk with other game players (please, no trash talking). In The Lounge, check out a few videos we've created to show how some people are preparing for the challenge.
Here's my favorite video:
