    Im glad you guys are enjoying the project as much as me and Erin are! There are tons more to be posted and maybe it might be cool to have this as an on-going thing – the response has really been overwhelming.

    jeff & erin – how about just keep going until people run out or encouraging words, which will likely be a long, long time ;)? encouragement is contagious!

    haha if i can figure out a way to automate it with like flash or something rather than having to lay them all out randomly in photoshop i would love to see this as an on-going thing…

    If you do find a way of making the process a bit more automatic, please keep the “one post with a lot of new messages!” format, since instant gratification in this case is not as cool as coming in to read a looooot of cool messages.

    Also if you handmade it in photoshop it’s almost like you handmade them in paper. It adds that extra bit of dedication.

    What I mean is, I can see how this can get tedious and time consuming but if you find a way of making it automatic don’t make it a vending machine of emotions!

    great feedback Rodrigo – yes, the reason i wanted to lay them out (albeit sometimes really randomly) in Photoshop is to make them feel a little more unique and i agree about the feeling of seeing a flood of new ones rather than the “instant gratification” of seeing one new one at a time.
