Cool! Yes, I know your PR people at the Art Institute very well at
this point. :) It's all good. I thought that the ABC news bit and the
KQED stuff from San Fran worked out very well -- we've gotten a lot
of new people sign up on the list (waves to new people - don't be
shy!).

I've tried calling and emailing the Washington Post people but I
don't think they've put up their interview with you yet. I think it
might be because it was due to come out right around the time of the
Virginia Tech shootings and since so many of the victims were from
the Washington area...video games definitely fall out of favor in the
media when horrid things happen even if they have NOTHING to do with
the violent events. But I'll email them again -- do you have any
other contact info for them?

Anyway, great news about your documentary and let us know how to vote
for you when the competition for the scholarship is posted!!

Michelle
