|[11:00 AM] Play Tetris On A Building Wall... And Steve Wozniak Will Visit You
The Associated Press is reporting on a group of students of Brown University managed to gather enough wire, christmas lights, wooden frames and circuit boards to cover a wall of the University's sciences library with a giant Tetris game that they called La Bastille :-)
The setup is controlled by computers and it is amazing enough that Steve Wozniak (who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs) paid a visit to these people. Woz said:
I think it was just the most incredible one-day thing I could imagine in my life. Like Steve Jobs always said, the journey is the reward.
It made me think of projects we did back in college. Things that were almost undoable that other people wouldn't think of doing.
His friends said Wozniak was stupid for traveling to watch the large video game display but he replied that he's just crazy :-) and that he's looking for a building in the Silicon Valley area for a similar tech-house, live-work dwelling.
The full story is entertaining, so go read it.
The Mac Observer Spin: First of all, Steve Wozniak seems to waste no opportunity to quietly and unobtrusively demonstrate that he is on of the coolest individuals on the planet. Second of all, the students who did this project get a big Mac Observer Salute! There are probably few people reading this who do not harbor the desire to go and play Tetris on a 14 story building. :-)
