Homework:
– Come to class prepared to present your final Sticker Projects. Final projects will be turned in as a single blog post on the course website BEFORE the start of class. Your post must include:
* A clever and highly “click-able” title
* At least 2-3 sentences of well crafted, witty and descriptive text.
* An embedded photo, series of photos or video (depending on your project).

Email at least two popular blogs your project info (title, description & photos / video). Pick websites with related content that might find your project interesting (WoosterCollective should most likely be on your list). Read BoingBoing’s Suggest A Link for the best practices of contacting blog editors.

Along with your final project come to class prepared to present a set of at least 12 related photos (20-30 ideal) of graffiti, street art, or urban hacking from your daily travels in Paris. These photos should be uploaded to a single folder inside of folder on the class photo page (e.g. http://photos.urbanhacking2010.evan-roth.com/class/your-name/your-photo-set)
