Intel is organizing an event in Second Life, where residents can plant sunflowers at Intels SL garden. For each flower planted, a donation is made to a conservationists group, and the avatar is entered in the sweepstakes to win a Gateway laptop. That is, if you're an RL resident of the US or Canada. If you're from another part of this planet, you're screwed; you cannot participate in the sweepstakes. I find it very strange that a company with such a worldwide presence would limit this sweepstake to US residents and/or and Canadians only. This should not be necessary in 2008.
