We helped Berkeley celebrate itself in one of the most colorful, irreverent, and fun events on the west coast. The Eleventh Annual "How Berkeley Can You Be?" Parade went off on Sunday, September 17, 2006 at 11:00 A.M and we were without question one of its most celebrated entries. Cameras everywhere were focused on us. Television news services trained their video equipment on us as well. There was a steady steam of applause as we rolled by the onlookers standing three and four people deep. We were invited to the parade by the organizers. They even helped us offset our expenses to get there!

Besides the video above. listen also to the Podcast debriefing that followed: (14:46)
