Writing this letter, (or SlowBlog) to my friend Farnoosh recently set in motion a whole swirl of what became known as iSpud movies. When I found this photo of my friend’s daughter, from about 15 yrs. ago, something about the way the potato rests in her hand made me think of how I am always slightly cringing when I carry my phone around, and it would be so much nicer to be carrying around a potato. So we tried it out the next day and indeed the potato feels alot better than the phone. And that led to a few days of making some movies of people using their iSpuds…Two of them are posted below. Thanks to Roosevelt Ulloa for her dedicated editing!
