Here is our wackiest story yet!
WHAT: Members of Oregon State University’s Linux Users Group have a history of paying homage to Firefox, a free Internet browser produced by Mozilla. OSU’s open source lab stores the servers for Firefox. In August, the student group created a crop circle near Amity to commemorate Firefox’s 200 millionth download. Students pressed a 220-foot diameter design based on the Firefox logo into an oat field.
THE LATEST: The crop circle has been incorporated into Google Earth. The image can be viewed by inputting the address 11955 S.E. Eola Hills Road, Amity, OR 97101, then scrolling up a bit.
WHAT’S NEXT: Firefox 2.0 launched in October, and it remains to be seen what — if any — grand plan OSU students will hatch to celebrate the event.
