The sites are done. The contestants nervously pace the greenroom. Their fate now rests in the hands of YOU, the voting public. You will determine who receives glory and admiration heretofore unknown in the annuls of PICnet history. You will destine who will sing before the cruel, unfeeling eye of the internet.
The inaugural Soapbox Throwdown pits PICnetter against PICnetter in a timed duel of Soapbox proficiency. Equipped with a common template, a fictional organization, and the tools in Soapbox, contestants had only one day to create a site. Time constraints were held to with strict precision. Contestants were highly encouraged to use the range of products available in Soapbox, including Soapbox Events, Soapbox Mapper, Jobline, Soapbox Slideshow, and Soapbox Donations.
Alex Budak The Natural PICnet’s number one draft pick of the fall season, the kid brings a hunger and native facility for the challenge that strikes fear into his competitors.
Tim Forbes The Wiley Veteran The gray beard of the bunch, what he lacks in energy or the base ability to string coherent sentences together, he attempts to make up for in guile and trickery.
Tony Larson The Woolliest PICnetter Former recipient of the Woolly Mammoth Theater Company’s Woolliest Washingtonian award, Larson’s commitment to head-to-head – or hair-to-hair – competition is legendary.
Bread & Hope: Operating in Washington D.C., Bread & Hope provides short-term assistance and long-term strategies out of poverty for those in our nation’s capital.
Sustainable Sudamerica: A socially-responsible business emphasizing environmental sustainable travel, Sustainable Sudamerica offers treks throughout South America.
