  1. Ahh! My friends and I are super-excited for this. We’re definitely making a trip to NYC.

    This will be my first MP3 Experiment, though. How long is it going to last and generally how much time does it take to get from Manhattan to Governor’s Island? Modes of transportation depend greatly on these details.

  2. 7 minute free ferry ride to the island. Ferry is downtown near tons of subways. Get there a few hours early and explore the island before the mission! (and to avoid crowds on the ferry.) More info next week!

  3. I’m certainly going to try to make it to the Chicago one, but I’m not sure if that’ll be possible with my schedule. I can’t wait to see how it turns out, even if that just means watching the video of the NYC event once the report is out for it.

  4. Hey! Im so pumped. I’ve been interested in IE for a long time now and really excited I heard about the upcoming one before it actually passed. A few friends and I are driving from Pennsylvania to do this event. Can’t wait to see how it turns out. The friends I speak of weren’t interested until I showed the video of the last experiment, and now there all for it!

    See you guys on Saturday!

  5. @Cal,

    They are making it possible for us to tour it to 3 more cities in addition to New York. They did not have any influence over the content of The Mp3. There won’t be any Yahoo! signs or logos at the event. So while not everyone will be happy to see a “Yahoo!” logo at the end of the video thanking them for their support, we think it’s a pretty fair trade to bring this project to hundreds (maybe thousands?) more people.

  6. Just thinking about the date for San Francisco… that is the same date as LoveFest! I really hope it happens there! That would be the ultimate improv audience.
