Dear all,

Many moons back, we made nearly all of a documentary with PulseProject. It was a terrific success, and there's just one more thing they'd like to do before it's ready. Can you help?

Colin wants to make a montage of about 30 zooites from around the world. He'd like you to Skype him, or to send him a brief video recording of yourself, along with your latitude and longitude. All you need to say is your name, and that you're a zooite. For example, "My name is X and I classify galaxies at Galaxy Zoo" or "My name is Y and I am a zooite". (Either your real name or you zoo name is fine.)

When you connect to him, you'll get a blank screen - he may need to text you to let you know that he's there watching. It's so that his part doesn't interfere with the recording. His Skype name is colincmurphy and his e-mail is colin@pulse-project.com. He'd love to hear from you.

For your latitude and longitude you should probably be able to get this off Google Earth - does anyone else have any other suggestions?

You don't have to have come to Oxford for that meet-up or to have had any particular involvement with the peas. Being a zooite is the main thing!

Should this include people who may well be on that video anyway?

I see no reason why not. 30 people is quite a lot anyway. If you can, do it! ;D

That's a wonderful lat/long finder, Rick - want to post it on the blog or shall I? ;D

Still looking as far as I know! If you can simply make a recording yourself, then any time of day is fine - just e-mail it to Colin. Otherwise, give him a Skype call or send him an e-mail and arrange it. Many thanks! :)

I've unstickied this topic, but will prod Colin - we want our peas documentary! We want our peas documentary! ;D

Bless him, I think he's got an awful lot on his plate at the moment. Perhaps the peas are buried in gravy! :o

*sigh* Colin and I had a long phone conversation a couple of years ago. Someone left his company, taking the tapes with them . . . I think if he was ever going to get them back he would have got them back by now. :(
