I meant to post this last month during SXSW, but life got in the way:



Geneviève Cardin of Baroblik handed the above Guest Check to me after one of my two gaming panels, and I thought I'd post it for interested readers. I don't hear much about Alternate Reality Games and related interactives going on in non-English languages. Cardin is a French Canadian working on some interesting projects--right now, she's doing a billingual (English/French) ARG known as The Rivard Project. She permitted me to keep her email address in the above photo, and she's looking for ARG-makers in the Montreal area, so drop her a line if you can help.

For those without graphics support, here's a list of Cardin's projects:

Time to sign Geneviève up for a couple of U.N.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. degrees.

I must need a couple U.N.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. degrees as well, because I don't understand what you're saying...

Merci! Je prend des lessons Francais chaque les jeudis, car je veux reponde (avec beaucoup de difficulté) en Francais ...

Quand les personnes n'ecrivent pas ses *email address* sur le Internet (?), j'ai pensé que c'est parce-ce que ils ne veulent pas le spam.

i always thought that people didn't write their email addresses online because they didn't want spam. i thought that bots search for addresses and add them to big mass-market lists that advertise penis enlargements, viagra and U.N.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. degrees. Is that not the case?

Ce n'est pas vrai?

(btw - thanks for you warm words about my site!)

Hahah ... now i'm sowing even more confusion. Genevieve send me an email, saying that she didn't understand me either, but it might be her French. i thought her email was a comment reply, so i responded to her here. DUH.

Wow - at this point, i'm not sure my mind is even suited to U.N.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y. Perhaps C.O.M.M.U.N.I.T.Y C.O.L.L.E.G.E. is more my speed?
