The Remix MIX Judges Announced

As previously announced, we are sending three lucky people to MIX – this includes airfare, lodging and MIX registration cost.  In addition, we will also be giving each of the three winners a custom, Remix inspired Xbox 360.  The full details of the contest can be found here with a great thread on the contest here.  Also, browse the Remix gallery to see all the great entries to date.
 
Today I am proud to announce the 5 judges that will be evaluating the Remix entries.  This is a stellar group and I’m grateful they have agreed to participate.  So, without further ado, here are your Remix judges:
 
Eric A. Meyer – Eric has written five books and over 38 articles; most of which focus on Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), their use and their application.  He is a strong and relentless proponent of CSS standards.  Eric is a former employee of Netscape, Case Western Reserve University, and The OPAL Group. He is currently a consultant for, and founder of, Complex Spiral Consulting as well as a founding member of the Global Multimedia Protocols Group.
 
Dave Shea – Dave co-authored the highly influential book The Zen of CSS Design along with Molly Holzschlag.  Dave is the creator and cultivator of the highly influential css Zen Garden, which inspired our little Remix contest!  As well as being a member of the Web Standards Project (WaSP), Dave is also the owner and director of Bright Creative.  He writes about ‘all things web’ in his daily weblog, mezzoblue.com.
 
Molly E. Holzschlag is a well-known Web standards advocate, instructor, and author. Among her thirty-plus books is the recent The Zen of CSS Design, co-authored with Dave Shea. The book artfully showcases the most progressive csszengarden.com designs.

Dean Hachamovitch – General Manager of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team and frequent contributor to the IEBlog.  Dean is at the very heart of Microsoft’s efforts to improve and better secure the web experience for the hundreds of millions of IE users around the world.  A great introduction to Dean’s vision is captured in this Channel 9 interview.
 
Robert Scoble – Self described ‘Microsoft Geek Blogger’, Robert recently co-wrote Naked Conversations : How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers.  Robert has long been a prominent advocate of both RSS technology and the Tablet PC. While currently at Microsoft, he has previously been involved with both these technologies in a professional capacity at NEC Mobile Solutions and UserLand Software.  In addition to blogging, Robert is a key contributor of the hugely popular Channel 9 site.
 
Each judge will be submitting their top 10 favorite Remixes in stacked ranked order.  I will tally these votes and determine the top 3 winning entries.  The entrants will be contacted via email at 12:01 am PST on March 14th and announced on the MIX web site the following morning.
