Links: John Zero (email@example.com***) remarks: With the announcement in Note
00082 that "Big Mike," our beloved microbial Viridian Mascot, might make an
appearance at Burning Man, I realized that my Viridian Inactivism must end, and
I should put up a downloadable version of Big Mike on the web.
Small, efficient, scalable vector-art versions of Big Mike are now available at:
These are in the very Viridian Adobe Illustrator EPS format ("Less Mass, More Data"), so that anyone who wants to can (with the proper tools) easily change Mike's color, size, or appearance at will. He's bitmap-independent and ready to be placed and output. I can't stand the idea that others might be using crumply, scaled up bitmaps of Big Mike for their own purposes, when they could be getting it straight from the source, i.e. me. The clarity of our message is dependent on the clarity of our reproduction, I believe.
Concept: Stefan Jones (SeJ@aol.com^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^*****?) Ad copy:
The Viridian Botanisphere offers a whimsical, aesthetically interesting application for the waste heat and carbon dioxide produced by a household fuel cell. The Botanisphere is a moist, warm, sheltered hothouse suitable for the cultivation of exotic flowers, herbs and even small fruit trees.Why it's not Viridian:
* It's a heap of specialized, durable gadgetry and structural materials that won't easily degrade.
* If the Greenhouse Effect really gets kicking, the last thing you may want or need is a place to grow hothouse plants.
Why it's Viridian:
* It turns what will probably be a utilitarian eyesore == a back yard fuel cell plant == into something aesthetically pleasing.
* The plants in it will suck up some CO2 and water vapor.
* It's an upscale, vaguely ludicrous, showy thing that will appeal to the leisure conscious and the wealthy: the Viridian target demographic.
