BlinkM Projects and 6-word memoirs

With more than 500 BlinkM's sold in less than two weeks, we're already seeing a number of really fascinating projects. We've made a project gallery on the site to highlight some of these. If you have a BlinkM project that you'd like featured on our site, please send a note to (or just blog about it, we have a Google Alert that'll probably pick it up in a day or so).

Also, a bit of total self-indulgence. About a year and a half ago, SMITH magazine held a Twitter-based contest for six-word memoirs. I entered on a whim and mine got picked up (along with this image and the memoirs of some 850 others). SMITH got a book deal based out of the contest and now the book is out. It makes entertaining bathroom reading and I congratulate SMITH and Twitter for making a cultural product before pretty much anyone knew who they were.
