3x3 Post-it® on glass

E2 Building UCSC
My Next Project...
About the piece
Super Mario Bros. (Miyamoto, et. al.,1986) was an inspiration to many of
todays computer engineers. In celebration of Engineering Week, this
large format work was created as an homage to the inspirational works of
these and other great computer engineers and scientists.
Currently 3/4 of this work is still visible at the E2 building at
UCSC, it is scheduled to be removed Friday night.
So we figured if we put this up the day before the week formally known
as National Engineers Week they'd see it as part of the grand
festivities (normally consisting of tables) and not take it down. Maybe
I'll have more to write about it tomorrow when it is either taken down
Well we didn't count on one thing, bean counters are not engineers.
So even under the protective banner of engineering week, the most holy
of weeks in the engineering calender, the econ department ripped down
every post-it® note on their floor.
Rest in peace Mario...
Thus ends engineering week. The school (most of it) was nice enough to
leave the post-ts up, so I figured we'd take em down. Well and since
the econ department liked to take them down so much, I figured we'd add
in something special for them too.

Black Post-its® really do exist! I so didn't
believe the person that told the person (who is not me) about
them when said person was planning this.
OfficeMax stickynotes are cheaper but they don't stick!
Buy Post-it® brand stickynotes for a good stick everytime!
(please give us money 3M, this was expensive!)
That guy on the third floor totally died
Second floor's kung-fu is strong
