Well, this is a crummy picture of a lovely objet d’art– the paperweight TechTV gave us last Friday at the end of the meeting in which our layoff was explained. It’s a heavy sucker — exactly what you’re looking for if you’ve got a homemade trebouchet. It took a certain kind of courage, or something, to hand these things out (we actually had to sign for them) instead of just taking them out to the landfill. Our camerafolks took the one pictured and put it on a small turntable lighted from below. The effect was totally prismatic.
