Spreading Playa Ideas to the Default World

A few weeks ago I talked about Like 4 Real on the stage of the beautiful Royal Concert Hall of Amsterdam for 1200 people about Like 4 Real. Spreading the ideas born and raised on the Playa to the Default World.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7SpKyGMqkg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7SpKyGMqkg

Re: Like 4 Real

I wrote a personal story about the project, what we did, the philosophy, the controversy, etc. and posted it (of course.......) on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/notes/dadara/like-dislike-and-fifty-shades-of-like-in-between/587319474642873 http://i251.photobucket.com/albums/gg314/dadara/P8270411...

Re: Fundraiser: Like 4 Real

I always LOVE your art dadara!! I like BOTH Red and Blue, but this year (due to a serious back injury I am currently healing from) I will choose Blue...but only due to the fact I cannot attend the Big Burn this year (boo hoo). Anyhow, for some of us virtual clicking is the only way we can almost be...

Re: Fundraiser: Like 4 Real

We passed the 60% mark now, and still have 13 days to go.......

Some of the money raised has already been spent on printing the textiles for our Like Tribe outfits!
They will look awesome in my humble opinion :)

Re: Fundraiser: Like 4 Real

Speaking personally, I don't see it as an advert, though it does make for an interesting discussion (both on the internet and on the playa). I like that it's not the straight up FB logo, and that even though he's using their symbol/IP it's being adapted rather than copied as-is. The way it appears ...

Re: Transformoney Tree

Good idea! Why collect before the event? Couldn't people see the tree, say "WTF," be educated on the concept of your art, get turned on, go to their campsite and bring back currency, be involved in the piece and everyone could watch it grow as the week progressed? If it doesn't grow, THAT's the art...
