Very cool.
Sounds like a good idea, if it's fund-able.

Hi Jan,

This is the current proposal for campus lifetime, I've never done one of these before so advice is highly appreciated!

Island Labs wants to light up the campus. As soon as it starts snowing, we want to release at least 500 led baloons and as many led throwies as we can. These will encourage the students to stop and interact with each other spontaneously instead of rushing around and generally ignoring non-friends. We would like to release the baloons from the top of the library, and then join the fun with throwies on the floor. Historically people end up taking the baloons and throwies to keep themselves, but if there are any leftovers they will decorate campus nicely ( and if they are still up after a week, Island Labs @ StonyBrook will gladly clean them up). This would require at least $500 just for the balloons, LEDs, tape and batteries. If we want some throwies, it also ends up being about $1/per for quantities < 1000. We are in the process of becoming an official club, but have over 30 members and have been meeting weekly for over a year.
