6 Days To Go Before Zer01
Thanks to you, we're now at 72% of our funding - and have 6 days before Zer01.
The tapestry is on exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, it is functioning perfectly, not an insignificant thing, given its networking and processing needs.
The Museum's even featuring it on their website: 50 Different Minds.
The response has been incredible. Viewers describe it as "Mesmerizing," "Beautiful," and "Meditative."
Gary Thornton in his blog The Floating Frog has this to say,
"...We used to make tapestries out of threads or strands of wool, and now we are creating them out of light, in real time, and using global data that someone hundreds of miles away could have well just tweeted!"
We're still in fundraising mode, please send your friends a link to this project.

p.s. we'll be with the piece in San Jose on Friday, September 17th, from 6-9 PM. Please, drop by.
