Lifehacker had an excellent week last week, picking up a number of prizes at the Microsoft IT Journalism awards. And the popular stories kept on coming, including updated NBN maps, overseas travel tips and great Chrome apps.
OK, so you guys are amazing. We were highly impressed with the quality of entries from our IT Pro readers seeking the chance to travel to New Orleans and help us cover TechEd 2013 North America in June. So who are the two well-deserved winners that will help us post from the event?
Tomorrow we’ll announce the winners of our competition for two lucky readers to win a trip to TechEd North America in New Orleans, courtesy of the Windows Server 2012 team at Microsoft. We already know two people who are attending: Lifehacker Australia editor Angus Kidman and David Klemke, our prize-winning blogger from TechEd Australia last year. While we wait for the winners announcement, David and Angus share what they’re looking forward to from the trip.
