350.Org went oversized this year to generate attention by creating works of art to be seen from the sky and space to raise awareness about climate change. Over 10,000 people participated in the campaign with some excellent results.
We are off to DC tomorrow morning (yes in 6.5 hours) to execute the meetup.com inauguraion event. Half a million people to distribute to in 8 hours! Should be amazing. I don't think I have been this excited to get very little sleep and be out in the cold for days on end in a long time (ok, ever!). If anyone is going to be down there and wants to connect, drop an email or call. I look forward to a pretty amazing experience. Pictures and wrap-up next week. Since the twitter community will be afire with what is going on with the experience and the speech, I am going to tweet about the marketing and branding that I see at the event. If you are on twitter and want to keep up, follow here.
Next time in DC!
Update: Read what Scott Heiferman wrote about the event we are working on,
Very cool little low-tech/hi-tech idea here. Shadow casting. Depending on where the light is, the resulting shadow creates an image. This one is for all you politicos, not sure who to vote for? Let your home lighting determine it.
So I have a cold and am not that creative right now. Deal with it.
Here is a CNN video of someone who carved Obama and McCain into their crops. I can virtually guarantee that aliens would not have created this and that they would have chosen a side. There is a GrowBama joke somewhere here, but the Advil cold and sinus has my nose in a headlock.
