The C.S. Lewis Foundation invites you to help with the founding of the C.S. Lewis College | Narnia Fans Hello fellow Narnia Fans! Paul Martin asked me to share a bit of information that you might be interested in – we at the C.S. Lewis Foundation are in the process of founding C.S. Lewis College. If your interest in Lewis and his writings goes beyond the films, you know that C.S. It is those three elements that we at the C.S. The C.S. As part of our mission, we envision C.S. Mere Christian – reflecting Lewis’s focus on common areas of belief rather than what divides us, the school will be inclusive of Christians of the main historic traditions, including Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox. We have written the curriculum and course outlines, created the by-laws and other legal documents, and have actively engaged in fundraising to launch the College. As we did not wholly reach our December 31st fundraising goal, the Green family has been looking for other potential organizations to receive the gift of the campus. This is far from the truth.

Barcode Yourself by Scott Blake Barcode Yourself is a complete, interactive experience in the series of barcode art, created using the personalized data of participants. Enter an individual's gender, weight, height, age and location, and the barcode is formed using real-world data. The individualized barcode can then be printed, mapped, scanned, even depicted on a t-shirt or coffee mug. It is in scanning a barcode that the project reveals its humor, like a banner that reads: Disclaimer! It is here, within the confines of an American obsession with "worth," in which the fun begins. The data entered into Barcode Yourself takes a topsy-turvy twist to its personalized end numbers, with the exception of the hard-data that correlates with "location," which tallies up in the Gross Domestic Product of each country. The calculation an individual's BMI based on the height and weight data reveals the health of an individual, thus those considered underweight or overweight are worth less money. More info in FAQ.
