MaxCDN is one of the fastest CDNs in the world. A CDN makes your website fast by taking a copy of your website and delivering it from the closest servers to your website visitors. For example a user in London loading a US website will be slow, so what they do is allow that user to load the site from London, making it fast for them. Check them out at www.maxcdn.com.
From Jacob: JobMob has been using MaxCDN since November 2010. Highly recommended.
The winner will be chosen at random from all the contest submissions received before end-of-day Wednesday July 31st, 2013 and announced the following day on the JobMob Facebook page.

The idea behind this prize is that sometimes the contest has great posts that for whatever reason don't perform well, and this is a way one of them can still get some recognition.
