This week's episode of Diggnation is brought to you by Klondike, Squarespace and Virgin America, the first airline with fleetwide WiFi.
"Day in the Cloud" by Google apps and Virign America is taking place on June 24, 2009. Virgin America, the first airline to offer in-flight WiFi on every flight, is teaming up with Google to take cloud computing to new heights with the first-ever online scavenger hunt to be played simultaneously in the air and on the ground for one day – June 24. Virgin America will be giving all its guests free WiFi that day to encourage travelers to get their nerd on. Google gathered a small group of gamers extraordinaire to come up with puzzles, trivia, and brain teasers. The hour-long game challenge will run for a 24-hour period on the ground and in the air.
Visit dayinthecloud.com to play. The top five scorers in the challenge will receive a "Year in the Cloud" prize package, which includes a year of free flights and free in-flight WiFi from Virgin America, an HP netbook computer, and 1 terabyte of Google account storage for all of your photos and email. Not a puzzle fanatic? Don't worry. The questions come in various difficulty levels so there will be some easy puzzles and others that might drive even the most experienced competitors crazy. You must be a legal resident of the U.S. and at least 18 years of age to be eligible for a prize.
WiFi and cloud technology is literally reinventing how we all travel, play, work and live. More and more people are storing their data online "in the cloud" with services like Google Apps. People now can access and share information with friends, family, and co-workers – whenever and wherever they have access to the Internet – even on a plane at 35,000 feet.
