Night (and Day) at the Museum
Congratulations to the clever folk at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry who came up with the idea of a competition where the prize was the opportunity to spend a month living in the Museum. Yes, really living there. Like you can't leave, except for one day a week. This would be my vision of Hell, but they actually got 1,500 applicants. Apparently the five finalists went through psychological screening, which I guarantee means that they are better adjusted than the average museum employee. Anyway, the lucky winner was Kate McGroarty, a 24 year-old theater graduate, and you can read all about her adventures here. And on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and a blog. Good thing they're not flogging the Web 2.0 aspects to death, eh?
