This just in from a reader…
Hi, you should check out www.nyctalktome.com – a couple folks who went around NYC for a year sitting with a big sign that proclaimed “Talk To Me” in front of them. They have some amazing stories, some nice newspaper/tv appearances with more info, and are currently writing a book about it all. One of them just happens to be my sister 🙂
Their idea is to get people to start talking to strangers and the people that flow all around them every day. Maybe that would be a Good Thing.
Oh, and you wanted some info about us submitters? I’m Patrick Barry, a master’s student at CMU in Human Computer Interaction, but mainly interested in social software. My web page that I’m currently working on (not at all ready for public awareness) is surrealpenguin.com
I love how conceptual your posts are, you’re on to some big ideas!
