Scott Bourne is giving away a Drobo (a fantastic SAN-type storage systems) to folks who link to his site http://www.mydl.me or who follow him on Twitter (and Retweet his offers).

http://scottbourne.com/search/drobo talks more about it, and you can follow him on Twitter at http://twitter.com/ScottBourne.

But at the end of the day, is this promotion driven traffic worth it? I can’t even tell you what Scott Bourne does, or why I should listen to him. Clever way to get some buzz, but buzz without substance dies down fast (unless it is goosed with money like the LolCats owners Pet Holdings Inc).

We’ll see if anyone remembers him even a month after he stops giving away things…
