Puzzzzzzzle Challenge!

For all you puzzle people, I scanned this one just for you! I’ll mail a Booooooom Sticker/Button prize pack to the first 3 people to solve it. Take a photo or scan in the sheet of paper you use to work out your answer (as proof you did it) and email me the correct answer.

If you know the answer please don’t ruin the fun for everyone else! You are welcome to voice your frustration in the comments though! This puzzle took me roughly an hour to solve. Good luck.

Seat-belt Camera Strap

Photojojo just sent me over a fun little camera strap made out of a seat belt! Perfect timing because I have many cameras whose straps are on life support.

Join our Twibes!

If you’re on Twitter you might already be up on Twibes. I personally hate the name (Elmer Fudd anyone?), but they allow people who share common interests to communicate with one another.

Pecha Kucha Vancouver!

Tickets for Pecha Kucha Vancouver (May 21 – 7pm) are now available online!!! I will be speaking there along with eleven other people including designer Marian Bantjes! I listened to her speak at Justified West and I could feel previously unused parts of my brain coming alive. You do not want to miss this! Tickets are only $10 and they will sell out. Get them here.

If you don’t already know about Pecha Kucha, each speaker shows 20 slides for 20 seconds, and there is no pausing or reviewing of slides. So if someone is boring they are only boring for 400 seconds. Show up early and you get free booze. Feel free to bring tomatoes to throw at me – I was hoping I could go first and get it over with but it appears I am last so the pressure is on!
