Ribbon-Cutting Event for Mayor of Orange Avenue

Brian Feldman, dully appointed Grand Marshall of Whatever, opened the line for the first night of shows of Albert Pergande's The Mayor of Orange Avenue. The show is based (I don't know how faithfully) on real Orlando people, places, and events, with the evil Central Hospital wanting to take over the whole block, and the sappy little antique shop that seems to have all odds against it.

The Whuffie Factor (AKA the Game) Orlando Fringe

This year at the Fringe, Blogging Fringe has created a game we hope you're really going to love. The object is to earn Whuffie, which is the most valuable currency known to man.


What's a Whuffie?

Whuffie are virtual points which represent respect, a "Reputation Currency". You earn whuffie as people credit you out of respect, gratitude, pity, lust, love, or any other motive for popularity.

"Whuffie recaptured the true essence of money: in the old days, if you were broke but respected, you wouldn't starve; contrariwise, if you were rich and hated, no sum could buy you security and peace. By measuring the thing that money really represented — your personal capital with your friends and neighbors — you more accurately gauged your success".
