Terra Incognita: Call for Participation in our Pilot Study

I've been working with Ethan Zuckerman and Matt Stempeck on an alpha version of Terra Incognita: 1000 Cities of the World, a news game and recommendation system designed to help you discover relevant, fun, weird, interesting or stereotype-busting information about 1000 global cities. We are getting veeeeeery close to an alpha version and now we need users!

Can you help us with our first user study?

Sign up here to participate in our user study on the system. Participants in the study get an advance look at Terra Incognita and the opportunity to play a significant role in shaping its development.
