I saw the short film Pandemic in Salt Lake City. It was in a venue that was near my hotel. It was hard to find, but I finally found it. I first looked for Google and Samsung logos and realized that corporate sponsorship might have a negative impact on the film. I enjoyed Pandemic 41.410806, -75.654259 enough to pass up a chance to go skiing at Alta. Instead, I walked around Park City looking for tagged water bottles, phones, and people. We stopped at the Sundance Channel HQ and asked if they knew about Google and Samsung's treasure hunt. The folks thought that I was crazy. It didn't look good. I might as well have been looking for Robert Redford. After walking down to the Miner's hospital, we finally found an exhibit in the basement that reacted to my Nexus S phone. In a dark room located in the basement there were flashlights that were used to illuminate images of faces on the wall. As I placed my Nexus S phone near each face a number appeared on the screen. My guess is that there is an application that is required to link the number to a file that resides on the phone. Is the application available to the public? Who do I contact? At the interface between art and biology lies an XtremeSignPost. I have stumbled upon hidden clues in Park City and I am intrigued about this interactive game and film. In the Park City Pandemic exhibit, I crossed paths with a fellow who helped to fill in some of the details. In exchange, I offered him a Bulacard. These interactive self-addressed RFID postcards are part of the million mentor march (www.internetofexperiences.com). It is an opportunity to record short video messages to the President about mentoring and education. Over the next year we are distributing and collecting Bulacards at a series of concerts and entertainment events. In our process, participants interact with various singers and artists (ie autographs, music, and discussions). The personal experiences are video recorded and uploaded to servers on the Internet. Links to the information are written on the Bulacards using RFID-enabled cell phones. In a year, the last event will occur at a rally in Washington, D.C. We intend to deliver a million Bulacards to the President. Hopefully, they will be stamped by the White House and sent back to the participants via the US mail. Each personalized card will tell a different story. By placing an NFC cell phone near the card, diverse multimedia files can be retrieved, displayed, and shared. We are hoping that these messages will spread rapidly through social networks. The interactive Pandemic art display has similar properties. News of the exhibit has spread like a virus through Twitter and Facebook. Today, we went to Park City to find Robert Redford and discovered traces of Google and Samsung instead. I was fortunate enough to have my own Nexus S cell phone and Bulacards. These devices allowed me to interact with film exhibit and share it on the Internet of Experiences. Hopefully, one day I will be able to convince Robert Redford to fill out his own mentoring Bulacard for the President. Until then, I will be looking for clues and hidden messages. Additional information about the project can be found at www.bulacard.com.
