He totally took the tone of every movie critic of recent years. "I want to get noticed so I'll rip into this media and act aloof about it so that I seem very elite." Why wouldn't we utilize "web 2.0" functionality? He's just sad that he doesn't get it and didn't think of it first. Note the sorrowful tone in which cubicles are mentioned and the name dropping of the ever so dignified "grad school". I'd be impressed if I weren't so busy studying and engaging in a different kind of social life than this author would ever understand. Plus, proof reading is vital.

Someone from one of the local TV News Departments gave me a call yesterday to discuss TLR and the Wellington Labyrinth Running Team. She's planning on doing some research into ARGs and the game, and will be getting back in touch - apparently she's keen on filming a training session (with an aerial shot, preferably), and potentially coming along with us to our secondary Giant Labyrinth drawing mission...
Will keep y'all posted. AFAIK ARGs have had just about zero profile in New Zealand up til this point, so anything is good.

I think from reading the article that The Lost Ring won the Grand Prize of all the promotions at the Buzz Awards. In addition, they won the Grand Prize in the gaming division.
They won against hundreds of other promotions including the placement of Mountain Dew..or was it 7-Up?... in the Transformers movie, which must have been pretty slick because i don't even remember it.
Congrats to Jane, Mei Wei, the one PM I met, all the other PMs and all the players. This was fun. Great job!!
