Okay. So I posted about not knowing what happened with the Cassie stalker thing and pseudo anonymity. I got the response from Natwwal that pseudo a. knew the identity, and is to be approached in person to find out the secret. I say nay, class, we shall rise up against this secretive tyranny! Tell us who Cassie is! You sparked my interest with your project - you can't go all MIA on us now, P.!
Does anyone know how his project with Cassie turned out? I was quite intrigued by the whole stalker thing, and have been checking the final project page for updates....and it wasn't on the final project page, so I went through the facebook group "Find Cassie," which doesn't have her identity revealed as of yet.....so I tried to find pseudo anonymity's blog on this blog, and I can't, for some reason (I went through each blog, the numbers at the end of the address, like mine is 18).....so I'm reaching directly out to pseudo anonymity himself.
Hey, pseudo anonymity, or anyone else who might know.
As Lulu mentioned in an earlier blog post, I've found the projects page to be an excellent procrastination tool, and whenever I want to do something other than what I ought to do, I've found myself poking around in various people's projects.
I was just having a look through crashingintowalls' project page, and I have to say that I'm intrigued by the physical element of the project. The appendix mentions a desire for a more "grounded" approach (paraphrasing very loosely), and I think that this has been achieved. I find the very openness of the project interesting. Not only is the "text" completely open to input from the community at large (including a kid who mentions that he or she "is not in college" but drops in to say "this is cool"), but it is also open in a very physical way being exposed to the elements as it is. Not only can any passerby modify the frame on Walker Beach, for example, but who's to say that a strong gust of wind couldn't have made some kind of authorial contribution as well?
