Last week, MarketingProfs hosted a killer #TechChat with special guest, @MackCollier. The topic was B2B blogging. And we're so grateful for all of the advice Mack shared during the chat.

In advance of SocialTech 2010, we're offering a FREE virtual pass (a $99 value) to the online version of the conference to the #TechChat attendee who shared the most valuable insight during last week's chat.

After many restless nights of deciding who the pass should go to, I gave up. All the insights were fantastic ... so I'll put the burden on you, our trusty readers. In the poll box below, please decide the winner of the FREE SocialTech virtual pass. The poll closes tomorrow night at 9 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), so we'll announce the winner at the end of tomorrow's #TechChat.

Ready, set, good luck!
