Extraterrestrials Recommend Firefox Too!

When I first heard of Firefox, I thought it was great. I quickly downloaded it and was impressed at how much easier it made browsing and my blogging activities. I took the opportunity to link up some of their artwork and began promoting it to my online friends, tried to convince some of the IT guys at work to add it to our in-house system.

Maybe the secret of the Firefox appeal is more than the creation of mere mortal minds ...

Take Back the Field
Does the sudden appearance of a Firefox crop circle imply which browser extraterrestrials prefer? We don't know, but it was still fun to make!

Constructed by local Firefox fans and the same team that created the Firefox mural from cornstarch and kool-aid and launched the Firefox weather balloon, the Firefox Crop Circle project shows that we have so much passion for Firefox that we want it to be visible from space!

Planned in under two weeks and completed in under 24 hours, the crop circle had a final diameter of 220 feet. We constructed the circle in an oat field near Amity, Oregon, where it was completely invisible from the road but unmistakable from the sky. Our team consisted of 12 people, mainly OSU students, and we carefully stomped down oats from 3:30pm Friday afternoon until 2:30am, putting on the finishing touches between 7:30am and 11:00am Saturday, August 12.
