nooooo! I missed it.
This is beautifully reminiscent of the work by the AAA (association
of autonomous astronauts) here in the UK a few decades back.
Thanks Scott and Nathaniel for your important work democratising the

>It's been a great week for Scott and me. If you haven't
heard, our upcoming project "Tweets in Space" has exploded
online, with features on sites like Scientific American, the
NY Daily News, Chip Chick, and of course the Journal
Sentinel (who broke the story), among many, many others. And
the Twitterverse is all, well, atwitter with #tweetsinspace
already, setting up the hype for what is to come in
>Sadly, however, very little of this excitement has
translated into the fundraising we need to make the project
happen at ISEA (the International Symposium on Electronic
Art), where we plan to project and beam Twitter messages
towards GJ667Cc, a Super-Earth 22 light years away. We're
barely above 20% of our goal with almost half our time gone.
I'm wondering if you'd consider donating even at the
smallest level - $10 - and/or perhaps encouraging a few of
your friends, the social media junky ones (you know who I
mean) to do so? We'd be well over our goal already if
everyone who seemed interested in the project did as such.
If you have any suggestions for us - whether about the
project, our fundraising, or anything else - we're all ears!
