Caption Contest: What's Jason Cohen So Excited About?

It’s payback time.

In our first ever BoS caption contest we highlighted a photo of Paul Kenny from Business of Software 2011. We received a lot of good caption suggestions, but Paul chose Jason Cohen’s “Selling is really about getting your arms around their heads and blowing your features into their brains.” quote as the best one. So, we thought it would be only fitting to make Jason’s “prize” a starring role in the next caption contest 🙂

Jason is the founder of Smart Bear Software and WPEngine, and has been a BoS speaker for the last three years.
