Not only did I have a lot of fun working on this project with the good people at shift control media, but I also learned a stupendous number of useless facts as I wrote hundreds of trivia questions about America’s highways, byways and roadside attractions.
Project: Online game
Client: aloft hotels (owned by “W Hotels”)
This link launches the aloft hotels site. Click on “adventure a-go-go” in the menu bar at the bottom of the page to start the game.
And, because I couldn’t resist, underneath the image below is a sample question from the “Los Angeles to Portland” route to test your road trip trivia savvy.
Silicon Valley — Question 5
Micro or metal? Three of the following are tech companies from Silicon Valley. One is a Swedish Death Metal band. Find the rock and roll.
And the answer is…
D. Therion! Their names might make them sound like masters of mayhem, but 3 out of 4 on this list are simply mild-mannered IT companies. Agilent, Maxtor and Nvidia all make software, but Therion rocks hardcore.
