A quickie, since I was away at a meeting for the whole day yesterday and am doing extra work now.
Here’s a way to show your support for Emirates Team New Zealand, as forwarded by my friend Paul Sinclair:
We’d like Kiwis to head to www.supportwaka.co.nz to register their support for the team by typing in their name at the site. Supporters[’] names will be manipulated to form a virtual waka, which will then be sent to the team prior to the ﬁrst race. An image of the completed virtual waka, using supporters[’] names, will be included in national press ads as the regatta gets under way on the weekend. We’ll also be sending a waka paddle, or hoe, to Valencia—engraved with as many names as possible. This will also be presented to Emirates Team New Zealand.
It’s probably the best way for those who cannot be in Valencia to feel a part of supporting the country’s yachting team—short of buying red socks. Not quite a One-style exercise, but still one that is participatory among the public. Posted by Jack Yan, 00:19
I eagerly await the release of the final image, so i can scour the picture for my entry "The Immortal and Severely Talented Dan".
Well Jack I once lived not too far from Valencia- Valencia, California that is ;)
Magic Mountain theme park and the California Institute for the Arts are near by also. LOL
Excellent, Daniel! Zak, I thought you were going to say that when I saw the ﬁrst line in the comments!Post a Comment

With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
