How To Enter the Das Keyboard Contest:
- Create a holiday flowchart* for gift-giving with a Das Keyboard being one of the gifts (view example below).
- Post your flowchart to Facebook. Make sure you post it to the Das Keyboard wall and make it public so we can see it.
How to win: The flowchart with the most likes will win. The contest starts Tuesday, December 11th and ends 5pm CST next Monday. We’ll announce the winner on the blog next Tuesday.
For inspiration, check out 10 Funny and Fabulous Flowcharts or many different examples on Pinterest. You can show us a handwritten flowchart or draw one up in your favorite graphics program. Just make sure it’s easy to read.
Winner gets a Das Keyboard and eternal fame after we share your flowchart with the world on the Das Keyboard blog next week.
*Make sure your flowchart is kid- and parent-friendly. Be creative, not inappropriate.

Every once in awhile, we search for our name online. Doesn’t everyone? Recently, Das Keyboard has been mentioned in several articles and places around the web that are pretty cool.
A couple of the things people have said about us on Twitter lately:
@Xav - One day in with the @daskeyboard and it feels just right. Definitely not cheap, but a good investment for someone that writes for a living.
@robert_lund - I took my @daskeyboard home from the office yesterday and I already miss it today. Might have to go pick it up at lunch
If you missed it, a couple of weeks ago, we had some Das Keyboard fans stop by our office to try out a few keyboards.
Also, the ROOT Gaming Team is competing in the IPL5 tournament in Vegas this weekend. We’re cheering them on and can’t wait to see how they do. Go ROOT4ROOT.
Das Keyboard is excited to announce our sponsorship of the ROOT Gaming team. The team says “It’s different playing on Das.” Root4Root and listen to the click of their Das Keyboards as they crush the competition and vie for glory both in online tournaments and events around the globe.
