A crowdsourcing experiment: What's the title?
We're talking book titles today. Well, actually just one book title -- the title for the book attached to this blog that will arrive on store shelves on May 10, 2010.
There's a favorite -- what would be called the "working title," but there's also some room for imagination. So, this is my first attempt at crowdsourcing -- feel free to send this to the crowds.
Here's your elevator pitch: Journalist Jonathan Bender spent a year discovering the world of the Adult Fans of LEGO, while getting ready to build a family of LEGO lovers himself. And he never would have made it out of Malaysia, if not for his plucky robot sidekick, Glitchy.*
If it's in the comments and it's the title -- you're getting a free copy and a LEGO set in the theme of your choosing. If it is a pun on my last name -- you owe me a steak dinner and a chrome Darth Vader.
*Glitchy's not in this book. He's in the sequel.
