ISEA is 6 months out

Cris

Here is a bit of buzz I picked up at the CNN WWW site this morning. Beatriz da Costa, of the University of California at Irvine is designing instrumentation backpacks for pigeons who will beam pollution data back to a ‘pigeon blog’. The ISEA conference will serve as the inaugural test of the system.

This project could serve as a centennial celebration for the remarkable work of German Pharmacisct Dr. Julius Neubronner who patented in 1903 a miniature pigeon camera activated by a timing mechanism.

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few weeks i will be launching my own site, i’m not great with designs but i really like the style of your site so it would be cool if i could find (or pay for) something with a similar look. 🙂 Thanks!
