I was basically in charge of explaining the main ideas behind the main Biomodd and the Mini Biomodd to the students. Roy handled the swarm of students whom I could not handle, believe me, when i use the word swarm, it is really like, literally swarms of students. They're like armies attacking a fort, and you wouldn't want to turn your back for a second since they are really just keep on coming. Thank God there's three of us there. Ms. Melanie was the one responsible for signing the "Pass-By-Me" sheets of students.
I was able to talk to dozens of college students and professors who were really interested in creating their own version of the Biomodd. I suggested that they visit the Biomodd Site and check out the DIY manual. Dennise and Mon arrive at the booth I think around noon. I was also able to speak to Mr. Limjoco, who gave me his business card, since he was willing to fund another Biomodd project for his company who's interested in eco-friendly projects (to whom do i need to give his contact information? Angelo? Diego? Sir Al? Ms.Lai?). I think Mr. Limjoco wants the current Biomodd core group to create one for his firm.
I was also able to talk to a couple of students from University of Bicol who really like to create their own Biomodd. Another visitor of the booth suggested that the Biomodd be patented.
I really didn't feel any hunger while I was at the booth, maybe it's because I enjoyed explaining the idea behind the Biomodd and i liked the look at the Visitor's faces when they Finally realize or understand how the peculiar installation works.
Later in the afternoon, Habs and Julius arrived at the Biomodd booth and Habs was able to fix the problem concerning the playing of the AVP in the Mini-Biomodd, although he had no choice but to use the Mac Os X to play it. But it works very well now. Ms. Melanie also left the Booth in the afternoon.
we only had time to really relax and have time for fellowship late in the afternoon, since there were lesser students who were asking about the installation. I even heard some students whom I was able to explain the idea of Biomodd retelling, in their own words, how the Mini-Biomodd works to their fellow students who had the same questions and curiosity when they saw the Mini-Biomodd.
I'm sure i missed a couple of important events that happen today in the booth, but I think Iyen would be able to fill up the gaps. : )
PS: Ms. Melanie was asking if there's anyone who'd like to assist her in manning the booth in the morning tomorrow, since I think it would be very hard for only one person to man the booth, explain the ideas behind the Mini-Biomodd and sign the "Pass-By-Me" sheets of students. She'd really need reinforcement.
