Stuff wins SXSW award and tops 2 million views!
Dear Story of Stuff friends,
I apologize for my absence from my blog. To be totally frank, while I have been delighted and inspired by the response to the Story of Stuff, I wasn’t expecting quite this level of enthusiasm, so I’ve also been a bit floored figuring out how to manage it all. I’ve now secured a friend, Allison Cook, to work with me on managing all the emails, requests for translations and more so I am coming up for air. You can email Allison and me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ll start my re-entrance into blogging with two pieces of great news about Story of Stuff.
First, this past Sunday, the Story of Stuff won the SXSW Interactive Award as an educational resource. This is a huge honor for the Story of Stuff.
The list of all the SXSW award winners is available at: http://2008.sxsw.com/interactive/web_awards/winners/.
Second, Story of Stuff has topped 2 million on line views! We are currently averaging about 15,000 new views a day from literally all over the world.
Thanks to everyone who has forwarded the link to friends, showed it in classes and at events and generally helped spread the word.
And you? I know many of you have been doing your own work to disseminate Story of Stuff and, more importantly, to take action on the issues discussed in the film. What’s your news of the last 2 months?
Good to be back.
