COTTON CANDY CANNON: THE WEAPON OF THE FUTURE
An Awards Ceremony & Party for the Awesome Foundation
October 17th, 2009, 7:00 PM - 12:00
Betahouse, 13 Magazine Street, Cambridge MA (Central Square)
A venerable institution founded in June 2009, The Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences gives monthly $1,000 fellowships to projects that advance the interest of Awesomeness in our universe. There are no requirements for applying, no definite criteria for deciding the winner, and no limitations beyond the necessity for being awesome. The winners receive the money in cash, check, or gold doubloons.
This month, we are extremely proud to award our October Awesome Fellowship to Josh Gordonson (http://www.instructables.com/member/T3h_Muffinator/), whose plan is to construct a handheld cotton candy cannon that can "coat a rotating human in a cotton candy cocoon in one-three minutes." Need we say more?
You can read more about the proposal here: http://j.mp/5KKow
Come celebrate with us, meet the fellow and our micro-trustees, and hear about the plans to set the scheme into motion. We'll talk and answer any questions about how you can apply for the next round of Awesome grants coming out in October. And we'll also be giving the latest update on our previously funded Awesome Fellowships.
NOTE: the price for this event is free. You can expect beverages, food, ideas, cool people, and a big ceremonial check.
To submit to be the Awesome Fellow for October, please drop us a line by the 15th at: http://awesomefoundation.org.
