Well, I just invited 20,000+ strangers to a picnic.
If you haven’t heard of it, The Listserve is an amazing experiment out of ITP where one person a day from the list is chosen to send one email out to everybody. I got picked a couple days ago.
Most of the time, people tell stories or give life advice or share recipes. I thought it’d be interesting to take it beyond the screen and bring it into a different medium: PICNICS.
Just opened this email, plugged in the coordinates to Google (40.667602,-73.970831), and am now super curious who might be showing up to this impromptu gathering in Prospect Park. This Listserve email never ceases to surprise me, sometimes it’s strange, and sometimes it has gems like this. Never a dull read.
