question: does imiating the insane make us insane ourselves?
answer: yes, at least a bit.
so if anyone read the article in SF weekly, obviously this is what he was talking about at the begining there. the fun part was that the reporter was the one labeling all the little pieces of packing corn, while i was stabbing them with a paperclip. we were going at this in a cafe in berkeley, and two random fellows wandered by, and, appropriately, were confused by what we were doing. when they asked, i told them about the game, and the task, and they eagerly asked if they could help. it was a fantastic example of the random collaborative gloriousness that is sf0.
so thank you, random dudes from the cafe, for fun equations and newspaper cutouts. if you have since joined the game, let me know, and i'll add you as collaborators!
The package has been recieved and by way of the grapevine, this is what they responded:
i don't know who it's from, but i just got the most incredible package ever received by a human.
