Blue Helmet Update

I apologize to Culture Shock readers for not having shared any new reports on the Miniscule Blue Helmets on a Massive Quest since my last post over two weeks ago.

This morning, one of my international Twitter connections, Dutch photographer Rogier Chang, tweeted a link to a televised news report on the project. The following segment shows Pierre Derksthe artist behind the project, and colleagues preparing thousands of little soldiers for worldwide questing.



Subsequently, I found another video report on the project:



I promise you'll be hearing more about these tiny adventurers as soon as I'm back in communication with them. I can report that there is a Blue Helmet guarding Timberline Lodge and another in Alaska watching the Cook Inlet to be sure that Putin doesn't raise his head in American airspace. Rumor has it that a few Blue Helmets ventured to Burning Man this year.

If you're new to the Miniscule Blue Helmets on a Massive Quest story, I encourage you to click on the "Blue Helmet" label to find my earlier reports.

Excellent clips. I liked them both, and I'm not sure which better: the one with subtitles, which were nice to read, or the one that was all Dutch, which forced me to appreciate it on a nonverbal level.

Is it possible that a blue helmet might someday hitch a ride on a Portland toy horse?

I forgot to mention that there is a button to turn on English subtitles for the first clip. It's in the lower right hand corner labeled "CC".

I do think we might see a Blue Helmet riding a Portland horse! Capital idea.
