Win 2 Free Passes to BANANA 2 Conference

January 24, 2011

You've already heard that Asian Americans are taking over the Internet and if you're reading this post, you're probably one of many wired folks who can name every blog, M. Night Shyamalan protest, and Tiger Mother response currently floating around in cyberspace.  Why not spend a Saturday rubbing elbows with like-minded folks?

Hyphen is giving away two free passes to the Feb. 26 BANANA 2 conference of Asian Pacific Islander American bloggers at CBS Studios in Los Angeles.  Regular admission is $20.

To enter, go to, select Hyphen from the menu, and submit your name and contact information. The entry deadline is Jan. 27 so you have a few days to test your luck with the Asian American blogging gods.  The passes are just for conference admission and don't include travel or lodging.

Connect with BANANA 2 on Facebook and Twitter at and at Banana2_Event.

I'm going to extend the deadline for the free pass contest.  New deadline is Jan. 27.  Thanks so much for HYPHEN's support!
