For some reason, I can't seem to find the "post a blog" thing.Okay, so today was earth day! I was only able to attend after 1pm. Because it was raining, there weren't that many people there. Actually, it was quite empty. I passed a few flyers out to people, but most of them just said "thanks" and walked away. No one really asked me much about it. I left a bunch of flyers at Think Cafe, and I left some with some people who were sitting at tables for the fair. I honestly don't know how well I've reached people about our project, but hopefully some will look it up on SL.
I think you have to be labeled a "Contributor" in order to create an original Post, because I've tried for quite some time today and came up empty handed.
Also, I attended the short lived Earth Day fair, as it got rained out, but found my visit pleasant. Most conversations tackled SL more than our project, but I feel it was an educational experience nonetheless. One student pointed out the irony of us trying to save the environment by printing out so many pieces of paper. Oh, those NYU kids are clever.
