So I’ve gotten wind of people who are intentionally trying to sabotage the Network Challenge by putting up fake balloons. Think yer soo tough, eh? Gonna show those DARPA fellas aren’t you? I betcha a giant baked good that they were really hoping that people putting up false balloons and false data so they could see how teams weed out good information from bad. Not so much fun to do any more is it?
Of course we like to play with the best (and the rest) of them too- so we’re telling you straight out that we’re going to be putting up extra balloons for people to spy- not just plain old big red balloons- but mini-giant cupcakes. You know- so you can get a taste of what a giant one might look like WHEN WE WIN! ha ha ha ha.
And unlike DARPA, we’re going to share the love. Prizes:
- (10) FIRST PRIZES: Submit a photo of yourself pointing to one of the mini-giant cupcakes (submit via our flickr group) We will select 1 winner from each mini-giant cupcake location.
- (1) GRAND PRIZE: To the first person who submits photos of themselves pointing to each of the 10 mini-giant cupcakes. (Photoshopping allowed & encouraged- we certainly wouldn’t want to add to the carbon footprint of this project by having you drive from say, NY to CA- oh! I’ve may have said too much!) Submit via our flickr group
- (1) MOST HONORABLE MENTION: Impress me. Make me laugh- come up with a fabulous flying cupcake themed image (video? baked good?) and submit it to the (submit via our flickr group)
We’ll be sending a tweets out about the fellow balloon artists who will be creating the mini-giant cupcakes- so follow our twitter feeds: @airigami, @craftyb and of COURSE @findredballoons . We’ll let you know what’s in the prize packs once we nail that down. Needless to say, they’ll be lots of fun, and we should be able to get them out to you just in time for Festivus!
Oh and while you’re all looking and having fun messing around with digital pictures, don’t forget the reason we’re here! HELP US FIND THOSE RED BALLOONS SO WE CAN BUILD A NON-MINI GIANT CUPCAKE!!
Back to work…
