This Friday March 13th, Kevin, Mike, and myself will be participating in Red Nose Day, an offshoot of Comic Relief. Though Comic Relief has mostly fizzled out in the U.S. (perhaps mercifully so), it’s still a big deal in Great Britain.
Ken Plume of Quick Stop Entertainment (our tormentor during the SONG FU competition) and Widgett Walls of NeedCoffee.com are doing an insane, day-long marathon via the net to get some Yanks into the spirit, and perhaps give over some dough (sorry, quid) for many good causes. Geek celebs John Hodgman, Jonathan Coulton, Paul & Storm, and others will also be partipating.
More info in their video here:
