The GiveALink.org research project invites you to play two fun games
while at the same time contributing to the study of online tagging
behavior. One game, Great Minds Think Alike, is about to be released
on the iPhone platform: please check this website in the near future:

http://greatminds.givealink.org/

The other game, called GiveALink Slider, can be played in your browser
whenever you want in the next six weeks. Follow the instructions
below. The 10 players who earn top scores during the study will win
great prizes. Have fun!

Please support the GiveALink project (http://givealink.org/) by

Play (IRB study #1011003937).

In the study you will play a game, named "GiveALink Slider." In the
game, you need to tag given web pages and accumulate points. The top
10 users with highest scores will win the following prizes:

TOP prize: One 8GB Apple iPod Touch
TOP 2 - 4 prizes: Three 8GB Apple iPods Nano
TOP 5 - 10 prizes: Six 2GB Apple iPods Shuffle

The study started on March 29, 2011 and ends on May 10, 2011 (6
weeks).
