[olug] Anyone apply for a ChromeOS laptop?

I too have applied but haven't gotten so much as a confirmation email 
for my application.  I've been eagerly watching for a notebook-sized 
package to appear on my porch.

On the application they asked for a short, 140-character blurb about 
what makes you a unique or noteworthy beta tester.  Aside from using 
Linux and whatnot, what did you guys put that makes your application 
stand out?

Mine is pretty generic as it's all I could fit in 140 characters.  I 
mentioned something along the lines of working in IT, and testing a lot 
of new products and concepts in the field.  I also mentioned that I 
write a tech blog, but I'm sure everybody would say that just to get a 
foot in the door.

Did anyone else put something similar?
