All I could think of was how enormously expensive some of these creations would have been, not to mention the time commitment required. I'm jealous. I don't have the time or the money to make stuff like this, but sure wish I did!
i too live in indy and my seven year old grandson would have loved this if we'd known. if they charged they lost our money. the indy children's museum had a lego exhibit a year or so ago that we didn't miss it; they can afford billboards.
What's sad is I live in Indy, I watch local TV including the local news, and the first I knew about this was after the fact from TechRepublic. There are many events that happen in Indy that that most locals don't even know about. The committee in Indy that's in charge of these events needs to learn how to advertise.
I agree, It is pathetically easy to slap together an album of digital pictures, but takes some effort to select the best then properly caption them so viewers can get the best experience viewing them. Too often these caption-less slide shows waste our time in here! Also, why isn't there a slide-show javascipt installed for these slide shows so we don't have to keep moving the screen around to find the "next" arrow?
