Online Scavenger Hunt Fall 2007

Tomorrow will be the second virtual scavenger hunt I will hold in 2007. Last May I posted about the upcoming assignment and I received some good suggestions as to items I should consider adding to the hunt. Recurring since 2005, it involves a variety of search techniques and refinements that teams of three must employ in order to beat out the competition in a three hour contest.

For those in my Living and Working in a Virtual World class who read this blog: Yes you will be graded and there will be prizes for first, second and third. You have just been given a head start. Prepare your strategy and form your team so you can be ready tomorrow.

As previously instructed in class and in this blog, "It might be a shopping cart full of three very different and hard to find items, or the total box office receipts of a movie with Peter Sellers in it with the only information provided being three supporting characters or an email response from your local government official. It might be."

One of the items on this Hunt's list came from the comments section of the May hunt. I will also require the teams find an item from comments posted on THIS blog entry. So anyone out there wanting to provide a suggestion please do.

The above picture is from the classic "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963)"

If anyone wants to give it a go, (like you don't already have plenty to do with your day), I will post the list of items at 10:45am Pacific Time tomorrow. The FIRST non-class team or person to finish will receive a 15 dollar Starbucks card from me. If you are a team you split the card. Provided you give me mailing instructions of course. The Hunt ends 3 hours after posting.

Oops. Meant to say "lunch" not work. Talk about a potentially bad Freudian slip...
