I've just launched Grab Your Sledgehammer on Peter's Facebook page. It's a project where the public can recreate scenes from Peter's Sledgehammer video using their webcam. The whole video should play back with the original scenes replaced with the most-voted recreation of that scene. There's prizes to be won and the top video from each scene will make it to the final cut (which will probably be featured on YouTube and petergabriel.com - we're still deciding that one though.) It's being announced to the world properly tomorrow and, hopefully, you will be willing guinea pigs in the meantime to try and make it as good as possible.
You can find it here: http://rw4.me/sledge
Could you please let me know if there are any issues by responding to this post, along with what you did to cause the error and which browser you were using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) Due to limited time completely new features won't be possible Please have some fun with it.
Rich @ Real World.

Thanks for this Rich -- I will give it a try if I dare -- technology and me, well, let's just say it might not bode well -- for me -- tech always wins out, but I don't dare let it stop me from putting up a good front
I'll share this with my very creative niece . . . she'll know what to do with this

nice photo Zenrider
Great idea! Looks such fun. I want to add one but can't get over my facebook fobia. Still, being able to see the ones already made without becoming a member is great! Good luck everyone who has entered.

Hello, Real World Team!
I have submitted a video for the Grab your Sledgehammer contest and many of my friends say they have voted, yet the votes do not get registered and I have to get them to try again; it takes them sometimes up to 5 tries before their vote is accepted. Just thought I would let you know... Thanks!

more pointless facebook shit - why does anyone bother?
