Since it's so freakin 'restricted' why not just make it the first 6 people in line?

If you let any body in the USA do it, I would have gladly paid for my traveling expenses from Ohio...

No chance of heading out to El Paso Texas huh?
December 29, 2009 4:30:49 PM

Bah humbug. I live in Florida.

Maybe Tom's will let me host an event in my backyard? lol

I thought this site was international? I think you should try all different states and countries. I see that it is not only U.S. that comes to see your site. In my opinion it would be a good way to advertise, get people interested in coming to your site. You already have a site supporting many languages, so that's not a barrier. I am sure you have a community willing to help you as they enjoy the articles and information you provide. I think you would generate a lot of interest. Anyways zzz sip sip mmm coffee.

Not sure how apt the NWA reference was being that you're on a tech site.

CoryInJapanHmmm Culver city...Its only a 2 hour drive from here. Damn and a couple years ago I lived in Culver city...would have been perfect.Could have rode my bike down there.

Wow, you're only two hours from Culver City!? It seemed a bit farther when I was living in Japan. Lucky for me, I am only a bike ride away from Culver City. ;)

Last time I checked the population of Southern California was roughly 24 million.

That bites! Why bother even promoting this nationwide on your main site, put some flyers out around your building and be done with it.

Florida reporting in to bad we across the country...
December 30, 2009 1:53:58 AM

December 30, 2009 2:14:13 AM

What are you really doing, have an entry level job opening and are looking for prospects? If not, then open it to anyone who is willing to pay their own way on short notice!
December 30, 2009 3:01:37 AM

Article title suggestion: Chance to visit Tom's office for SoCal residents.
December 30, 2009 3:02:25 AM

"Due to certain restrictions, we're only able to invite those who live in Southern California and can cover his or her own expenses in traveling to and from our offices."
That's why its SoCal only.

You guys should go on tour. Come to Chicago first.

If you go on tour, you could ask for volunteers at the cities you would be going to.
December 31, 2009 1:45:26 PM

If your not covering the traveling costs then why limit who can participate due to their global positioning? Tom's fails again.
December 31, 2009 8:35:21 PM

Is this thing 18+? I wanna go...16 year old :D

micky_lundwhat about australia?? take me a long time to get there...


I hear ya mate :) 
January 3, 2010 9:09:50 PM

They should have just announced that first 6 in line are taken and put a webcam to shoot outside. Some entarteinment for rest of us not qualified and some social experiment on the side seeing how many start camping around Tom's HW office waiting for that "weekend in January". Although Alaska would have been even more interesting than SoCal...
