Talking about 'beta'! Mercer Island to Seattle doesn't seem to work at all. Just get error message 'We could not identify a connection between your starting point and your destination..." for any two addresses I could come up with between MI and Seattle.
Not to mention, when I typed in 'SE 28th St' (north end of MI), it let me select from a list but then showed me the Bellevue one instead on the map. These were the mistakes I found with ten minutes of poking around.

'Sittlichkiet'. Nein. 'Sittlichkeit' ('keit' adding a '-ness' sense onto 'Sittlich', or customary).
Tsk, tsk, rookie mistake. You know the bombastischen Arsch-hats are going to be lying in wait when you use foreign terms!

'Video synced to surroundings' claim sounded very cool, so pretty disappointed by what I saw at the performance. Footage looked extremely generic to the region. I hope & pray we'll be able to see some visual patterns emerge in the display that give a sense of parrying or at least acknowledging its setting. And for god's sake, why not also have real-time feeds coming in from remote cameras? (Or even from NW webcams. The WaMu falcons, digitally remixed, would've been cool to see, no?)

I'd never gotten a flu shot till yesterday, since that's not a type of sickness I get. However, I fell for the "don't be the contagion-spreading dick" argument.

Review of the DJ wars: Glass vs Savage,Showbox-Market
Blow by blow:
DJ Savage led with Ethel Merman. Very fun - for one song!
DJ Glass totally rocked his set, with music available on, I don't know, an actual iPOD.
DJ Savage countered with Captain & Tenille. (I'll get back to you after talking to my therapist.)
DJ Glass had crowd rip-roarin' (OK, with the occasional flat attempt at, e.g., New Wave - "Sex, I'm A Goddess..." falling unbelievably flat(!), and an awkward intro into some rap that eventually caught on.)
"How did I miss that" picture: DJs Glass & Savage each giving a go at crowd surfing.
Priceless followup: professional DJ (aiding them all night) subtley demonstrating crowd surfing etiquette - with junk towards ceiling, fer cryin' out loud!
