The Honors Potty Chart

Posted on Aug 20, 2008 in Blog, School | 0 comments

chart I was cleaning up some old photos off my camera and I came across this. As a joke last year in the dorms, I collaborated with a few friends to pull a prank on everyone living on my floor. The story was that Georgia Tech Dining was trying to conserve water, and so therefore they would be testing a “water recycling system” (taking drainage from the toliets to use in the dining halls) in order to encourage students to flush when they use the restroom. It’s amazing how many people fell for this, putting up a sticker every time they flushed, especially considering it was an “honors dorm.” It’s probably even more embarrassing for Georgia Tech Dining. Anyways, my biggest contribution to the project was the “official flyer” seen at the bottom, complete with a toliet resting against the rotting...

The course was initially scheduled to be taught by Ian Bogost, but is now being led by Brian Magerko. Brian claims to specialize in “artificial intelligence for interactive storytelling.” As much as I was looking forward to a class with Dr. Bogost, I think it should still turn out...
