Q: What is the #symbiangives campaign?

A: We have recently made our source code free to everyone and we’re still feeling in a generous mood.  So to share our joy, we decided to reward the community for celebrating with us through their Twitter Tweets.  For ten days (Monday – Friday from Feb. 8-19,2010), we’ll be giving away various prizes to randomly selected people who either  Retweet us with the hashtag #symbiangives, or who send us a clever line following the creative template from our campaign.
