Way Too Much Fun — Remote Control for Charity

My friend Alek Komarnitsky is on sabbatical from his job, and he’s having way too much fun.

In support of his efforts to win a $7,000 prize (which he will immediately donate to a Celiac Disease Research center, he’s participating in an SEO (Search Engine Optimization Contest). Alek is trying to end up at the top of the search engine results for the phrase “V7ndotcom elursrebmem “. While he’s home, he’s built a very cool web-controlled display of lights, fans, a bubbling cauldron, a clock and more, all visible via a webcam. Take a look here to see this first-hand.

Please feel free to help our Alek’s cause by visiting the page and consider linking to it per the directions that you’ll find there.
