From the official Tweenbots site:

But of more interest to me was the fact that this ad-hoc crowdsourcing was driven primarily by human empathy for an anthropomorphized object. The journey the Tweenbots take each time they are released in the city becomes a story of people's willingness to engage with a creature that mirrors human characteristics of vulnerability, of being lost, and of having intention without the means of achieving its goal alone.

(Thanks again to Michael Garrett!)

The Delion store front in the back put's this on the corner of Broadway and 9th street in Manhattan. One block away from the NYU dormitory I called home for my first year in The City.

I looked a lot like the guy on the left at 19.

I love the very well-dressed lady with the fancy grey leather bag, that intervened 3 or 4 times!

Is this your way of suggesting that you are, in fact, a next-generation Tweenbot?
