The screen is bare, the list is barren, there is nothing to see. It seems as though it’s all about blind voting!
Monopoly really seems to have understood this whole web2.0 thing. I am incredibly impressed with how they have maintained this competition. It just goes to show that all it takes is an idea to go viral. No amount of marketing can compare to a great idea.
There are 6 days, 17 hours, 56 minutes left to vote at the time of writing this. So get to the site now and vote.
I must have a very quick rant on this topic though. News24 published an article about the voting and this entire process that really got under my skin. For the record, I live in JHB and have never lived in CT. I haven’t been to CT throughout this entire process, yet some stupid woman (the CEO of Cape Town Tourism, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold) says,
“In less than three weeks Cape Town has climbed to the 3rd place on the leaderboard. It is a wonderful tribute to Brand Cape Town and the people that make Brand Cape Town so remarkable,” she told News24.
“Cape Town Tourism wishes to commend fellow Capetonians, the tourism industry, the media and Cape Town’s global network of friends that have contributed to Cape Town’s rapid ascent.”
Firstly this is not a tribute to Cape Town Tourism, this is a tribute to Cape Town and people like us who make use of social media platforms to rally around something we believe in. Don’t get all clingy now lady. And secondly, why did she have to go and make this about area? Why couldn’t she have thanked South Africans for voting, why specify Capetonians? It bugs me and I have had a fair amount of Joburgers and Durbanites email to tell me how irritated it makes them that they were excluded inspite of voting EVERY DAY for the last few weeks.
I kind of feel the same.
Anyways, Capetonians are cool man and I think we should help them (and our country) get to the top spot, so keep voting even though you can’t see the cities in the lead!
