If you start preparing now, you (ok, someone like you) could take home the trophy at BattleDecks 2011.
1. Start drinking at 9am.
Only people who are already buzzed will get the high points for showing no fear, and be able to make any sense of the insane slides you will be presented to work with.
2. Spend a couple hours a day on 4chan
No, really.... you need to be up to date/speed on your internet memes. You are pretty much guaranteed at least 7 slides influenced by current memes. To really kick it up a notch, be SO familiar with the memes that you can not speak to them directly, but simply give them a nod that says, "Yeah, I know who that is, but I don't have name them."
3. Know your buzz-words
Though he didn't win, Chris Sacca came in with a strong second place. I credit his generous usage of words like, "platform", "cloud", and "penis".
4. Be a Writer for a Living
Well, apparently I couldn't hurt.
All jokes aside, there is something beautiful and inspiring about watching people think on their feet in front of a room of at least 500. The contestants who were most engaging were the ones who just committed to the process and went for it.
