Thread starter #1
To my surprise I found cubes in the biggest Toronto newspaper today (Metro), on page #2. Millions of people here read it. Thats the exposure that we need! :D

It got me wondering about exactly how much exposure it is getting elsewhere. Did anyone see it in the media recently? I wish we had a thread dedicated just for this. It is exciting and interesting to see whats written about us, the "speed cubers".

wow, but Philippine is even better because during the Rubik's Cube Philippine Open 2007, there was a media recording the competition and then later broadcast it. A lot of tv appearance getting a lot of attentions to all filipinos. Wow.

There was a clue on Jeopardy yesterday that said:
"This world famous cube puzzle was made by a Hungarian"

It was only a $400 clue. This is the second time I've seen a Rubik's clue on Jeopardy. The other one was a couple months after Leyan Lo broke the WR, and it said something like "Leyan Lo solved this puzzle in 11.13 seconds as a new WR".

Well, there was a recent article in the local newspaper about the Minnesota Open. Apart from that, I don't think I've seen much of anything.

It's nice to see that it's at least getting a little media coverage, though!
