WIRED NextFest 特別推廣活動，邀請大家一起來設計一個 first-ever universal icon 來代表 wireless internet access。主要用意就是要推廣 Wireless LAN 應用以及 Hotspot 的顯目提示。
冠軍除了 250 元美金的犒賞外，您設計出來的 icon 將會被推廣為世界通用的 wireless internet access 標誌。
Do you have what it takes to create an internationally recognized icon?
Wireless hot spots are popping up all over the world, but they’re not always easy to find. WIRED invites you to create the first-ever universal icon to represent wireless internet access. Your winning design will then be produced and distributed throughout New York during “NY is WIRED” week and at WIRED NextFest in September.
A judging committee of technology and design leaders will select the winning design. With the help of NYC Wireless, the design will then be distributed around the world, helping to kick-start momentum for global acceptance! The grand prize winner will also receive $250 from WIRED.
