Thanks for the support, Sally. To do this in your own backyard, I don't think you need me. Just fix a place and use the same camera! I've started doing it now in several personal spaces of my own.

Thanks, Erin! I'm sure you know some great places to put one of these!

I'll be making sure the site design captures good photos at first, so I'm going to start out with high-traffic areas on the Texas Tech campus where I work but once the kinks are worked out and we've got a good server running, they can be easily set up almost anywhere. The actual site should be relatively inexpensive.

Urban settings would be great, I think! Bring the change home to more people that way. I do think that getting good quality movies will require a 'site' like the one I am proposing. We've played around with it and just letting people casually take photos does not produce good time-lapse. You can correct some of it with software but it gets horribly wobbly. So, in urban environments, you'd have to check out getting permission and also think about vandalism too.

Thanks for all of your help getting this set up and looking good, Oscar! I think the first step is to scout out a good location. Notice places that you pass each day or hiking trails you go to on weekends and think about what would make a good site in terms of watching the seasons or the effect of management or the impact of climate change! You're my ice-breaker!
