Freeway Blogging for fun and profit...

What do you want for nothing... Burmashave?

Contest: Blog Your Campus

I've written about freeway blogging on this site before, but I thought a picture or two would be nice.

Also, college students make note: a contest to "freeway blog" your campus with prizes at Operation Yellow Elephant.

Many of you may be familiar with the Freeway Blogger's brilliant work. We'd like to see something similar happening at or near college campuses. To that end, Operation Yellow Elephant is holding a "Blog Your Campus" contest.

Description

Create signs relating to Operation Elephant's mission to expose the hypocrisy of hawkish College Republicans and other young conservatives who are too cowardly to fight in the war they demanded. Post these signs near roadways and pedestrian pathways on or near college campuses. Photograph your work and send it to OYE@charter.net. I'll post them here. In early October, the OYE contributing Writers and the Freeway Blogger will pick a winner.

How to Make Your Sign

It's always a good idea to learn from the masters.

How to Win

Send us a photo featuring a sign with a great message and lots of people or cars traveling past it. If it generates press, it wouldn't hurt to send us a url or a clipping.

[...]

Rules

1. Signs must be placed near roadways or pedestrian pathways on or near campus.

2. Photos of the signs must demonstrate that the sign can be viewed by many people (people or cars in the foreground)

3. Submit your entries here [OYE@charter.net] no later than September 30, 2005.

4. Vaughn adds this:

Make sure the sign really kicks ass, it's easy to see, and it's clear that it is not a fake. I'm a Photoshop master, so don't f&*k with me and you will get your musical device -- grasshopper. Perhaps take photos of the sign making process including the hanging of it?

From Boing Boing: Lame Nikon with WiFi

This sure sounds cool, but I really wish Nikon would get its shit together with the feature sets. These things sound like they were configured by some marketing person reading a demographics report, not by anybody who knows anything about photography.

Miasma

Latest Nikon digicam has Wi-Fi option and built-in FTP. Via Jason "I 0wn all the good domain names in LA" DeFillippo's blog:
"The new Nikon Digital SLR has an option for Wifi! FUCKING WIFI! Only problem is that it's 4.1 megapixel. I've got a 6.1 and I'll live with the offloading but... FUCKING WIFI! Here's good overview. List price is $3500 which is steep for the resolution but everything else on the camera is STELLAR. 11 area AF sensors. Jesus. And it's got built in FTP. The fucking camera has FTP. Those boys at Nikon rock. If it had a full sized CCD and higher res it would be perfect. Utterly perfect. Oh yeah, and Firewire. USB 2 is lame."
