as this project progressed, more and more interesting things happened ...
kottke.org linked this site in july of 2006. if any of you 'originals' have a link to your old 'behind the curtain' gallery, email me at garret-at-dangerousmeta.com and i'll re-link it as soon as i can.
the international interest was gratifying, to say the least. we started
with a sticker in english. that lasted one day. international
enthusiasm drove german, dutch, spanish and french translations:
then again, we've got some really giddy people involved:
we at BTC have done our utmost to keep our participants list up to
date. we believe we have had a few individuals who didn't sign up for
the project, but submitted image galleries anyway. we admire that kind
of enthusiasm and spirit, so here they are:
ruedi arnold, green
don saklad, guide to problematical library use
russell gum, webgeezer.weblogs.com
chris gulker, gulker.com
ingo hinterdingq, i'm *not* the asian nurse
if you feel we have placed you here in error, please email garret-at-dangerousmeta.com.
include your name, weblog name, weblog url, location in the world, date
you photographed (either the 17 or 18 of september), and your gallery
url, and we will place you in the main listings.
for those curious about this site:
it was created by garret p. vreeland, who currently runs the dangerousmeta weblog [formerly writing at array.editthispage.com].
it was created in zope, aided by such tools as
allaire homesite, bbedit 5 and 6, and adobe photoshop. it was created
with no prior knowledge of zope, in about six hours of work, including
creating the database portions of the site. i downloaded the online
docs, and went to town. the coding is not css 1 or html 4.01 compliant,
but it has been tested across windows and macintosh, in internet
explorer, netscape 4.7x and 6, and the current release of icab.
if anyone uncovers any incompatibilities, please send an email to garret - at - dangerousmeta dot com.
