‘Hot site’ for a UB grad student

USA Today included a Web site by UB graduate student Chris Barr in its “hot sites” column in April.

During the months of March and April and as part of a course taught by media study professor Steven Eastwood, Barr accepted requests from all over the world to do various tasks (within reason), as scheduled for him by site visitors. The catch: he would undertake these assignments only on a Thursday. The requested tasks included doing a handstand and providing a ride to a doctor’s appointment.

To visit Barr’s site, go to www.availableonthursday.com/.
