  • Shoe Design Competition – Victoria and Albert Museum

    22 September, 2007

    Shoes… there are so many styles. Some are practical, some are for special occasions, and some are works of art. Now is your chance to design your perfect pair, and enter a competition to be judged by a panel of designers including the internationally renowned shoe designer Professor Jimmy Choo OBE. The winners will have their design shown here on the [Victoria and Albert] website.

    What you need to submit:

    A single jpeg image that should include:

    1. One drawing of your design giving a side view of your shoe.
    2. A list of materials that would be used to make the shoe, stating which materials would be used for each part of the shoe.
    3. Two small drawings of specific details of your shoe. Choose the details that you think make your shoe design unique.
    4. Send an accompanying email detailing your name, age (if under 18 years old), and a contact number. Do not put this information on the jpeg image.
    There are four age categories:

    11 – 13 year olds
    14 – 15 year olds
    16 – 18 year olds
    18+

  • Help find missing pilot Steve Fossett

    9 September, 2007

    I received the following email from Amazon/Mechanical Turk earlier today. Thanks to a generous friend of Steve Fossett’s, recent satellite photos have been taken of the area where his plane may have disappeared. The public is being asked to examine these photos to try to identify anything helpful. It takes just a few seconds to scan each picture. There is a small registration form to fill out before you begin examining photos. Won’t you help?

    Greetings from Amazon Mechanical Turk


    On Monday, September 3, 2007, Steve Fossett, the first person to fly a plane around the world without refueling and the first person to fly around the world in a balloon went missing in Nevada. An airplane he was flying failed to return. No one has any idea where he is.

    Through the generous efforts of individuals at several organizations, detailed satellite imagery has been made available for his last known whereabouts.

    HITs have been created to ask volunteers to help review these images and flag potential areas of interest which will be instrumental in the search and rescue efforts.

    If you are interested in helping, please click here to participate in the search effort.

    This is a race against time and any help you can provide will make a huge difference.

    Friends and family of Steve Fossett would like to thank you for helping them with this cause.
