Sadly, I cannot attend due to my New Tacoma Award nomination stealing me away over the noon hour. Enjoy and I'm sure some fellow SiteCraftingers will be on-hand for the challenge. Enjoy all!

I needs a "ringer" to win this thing but don't have enough time to round one up.

|Wow. What a nice sunny event in Frost Park.|
RR Anderson's chalk art challenge worked out pretty well.

|So the winner has yet to be determined in the sidewalk chalk contest? Good talks to be had all over Frost Park today - nice meeting those of you I hadn't met prior. Patricia, thanks again for the great chat.|

|seriously though thanks to everyone who came down to the BETA version of the Friday Lunchhour Chalk Competition.. I will concede this: Mistakes were Made. Unfortunately you enter into a spontaneous sidewalk chalk art competition with the supplies/spelling on hand and not the supplies/spelling YOU WISH you had.
weâ€™re conducting a survey and hiring an out of town consulting firm so Next week weâ€™ll be back with..
1. assigned/numbered sidewalk sections for competitors 2. a greater supply of sidewalk chalk (bring your own if youâ€™re worried about it even) 3. rigid adherence to the abstract concept of time.
see you next week

|Good seeing you all,
Adam if your reading this the url for that video service is called vimeo, here are a few videos I've put up there
by Adam the Alien on 4/12/2008 @ 12:18am
|Hah. I am, in fact, reading this (for once - I've been avoiding this "reading" thing, it seems). I'm having some technical frustrations at the moment, but should have both today's video and the one from the snow a few weeks ago up soonish (if not before I go to sleep, then within 24 hours). I'll give vimeo a try sometime in the next few days, when I have more time - in the meantime, I'm working at growing a larger subscriber base on YouTube, so making sure I get uploaded there takes priority.|
