Applications – Redslist

Today’s student group presentation in Red Burns’ Applications class at ITP was called Redslist, which created as a reaction to last week’s guest speaker, Craig Newmark of Craigslist.  Everybody in the class was requested to submit one or more items, services or experiences that they wanted to exchange with others in class.  I offered up some beginning piano lessons, a bespoke dining experience, and a Proust Questionnaire-style interview.  Funny enough, people only took me up on the Proust Questionnaire interview.  I interviewed Ted and Sarah in exchange for some gyokuro tea leaves (from Ted) and a can of Bud Light (from Sarah).  Check out their answers after the jump.
