[ ESC ] wrap up

[ ESC ] was truly awesome on Friday night! It grows with every year. We had a great collection of projects and upwards of about 200 people in attendance. Locations & Dislocation was well received (I have several new cards to do!) and I enjoyed the presentations & unique collection of projects.

Drew Cogbill presented Pigeon, a social network using telephones he hopes can bring social networking to places where internet is not as ubiquitous (sign up to be a test user!). Meng Li and Elim Cheng presented Peek, Poke, Talk, a delightful bench that encourages interaction between strangers. When people sit far apart from each other on the bench, their shadows are triggered to interact and flirt, high fiving, whispering and teasing each other with a power drill (he he…).

We’ll be posting the program and links on our newly minted website soon. Laura Chipley took some wonderful photos (three below).
