"Jane -- KEEP AWAY!"

Originally uploaded by Avant Game.
When I arrived at Sandia National Laboratories Wednesday morning, the day after an eventful cookie rolling session at Albuquerque International Airport, I discovered a special message waiting for me at the continental breakfast station.

Several members of the Advanced Concepts Group (where I've been participating in a really intense and productive workshop on the public's role in security practices, and the relationship between face-to-face community and security) had set me up!

The note on the plate of scones, oh so round and with perfect rolling affordance, read; "Jane-- Keep Away. These are for EATING only." Taped above the plate, a printout of a color photo they had grabbed of me installing my cookies at the airport.

I swear, this is the closest I've ever come to fraternity hazing. Love it.
