I miss summer -- or at least the idea of a summer holiday since I'm desperately needing some air right now.

This is from Ward Island. After a 'hike' through poison ivy, Norina and I scored prime real estate with a log by the waves and kicked off our shoes to make this sand creation while fending off big, wet dogs.

And because I finally developed my photos from 3 months ago, the photo section has been updated too. Check it.

If this guy made this while living in Regina, I *completely* understand where he got inspiration from.

Also, my MPM032 mini-site for school is now live. Dirty and ugly like a true reject site should be.

The BIG Urban Game

The first week of classes for me has involved a lot of monologues about what my expectations of new media are, the things I'm interested in, and what projects that I would like to work on this year. I mentioned how I was interested in how the online world affects the offline world or vica versa but when pressed for an example, I blanked out. So today, while listening to CBC Radio (a new hobby), I heard of the BUG project and wish I would have thought of first.

Combining my interests of urban space and mapping, The University of Minnesota's Design Institute are using the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul as giant game boards. Join a team (red, blue, or yellow) and vote daily on which path your team's giant game piece traverses. And if you live in the area, you could have volunteered as a mover or you can go to the end checkpoints to roll a dice and give your team a speed boost. Go yellow!
