Dear pwn0 on Publicsurplus.com, I want to buy your Palomar Sky Survey Prints

palomar_sky_survey_cabinet.jpgDear pwn0,

How are you? I would like to discuss with you the Palomar Sky Survey prints you bought on publicsurplus.com in 2010.

I know it was a POSS-I set of prints, but from the size of the file cabinet, it looks like it was an early or partial version. And I hear from the folks at the planetarium who sold it that it might have been incomplete.

I have attempted to relay a message via publicsurplus.com itself, but the company does not respond to any non-automated communication attempts.

pwn0. Are those your initials? Perhaps someone knows you, and might relay this message to you? From the other, large, shop-related items you have purchased recently on publicsurplus.com, I am assuming you live in Utah. Which is awesome. My mom lives there, and we'll be visiting in a few weeks.

Anyway, I'm interested in hearing about that old file cabinet full of obsolete astronomy photos--and then I'm interested in buying it from you. So please drop me an email at greg at greg dot org. Thanks!

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
