This task was to create something that was alive, which ate, and died depending on how it was looked after. This was a project in pairs. We created 'The Hot Seat', it looked at using the meta tags withing websites to determine how 'HOT' the website was, the more meta tags there were the more flames there were, the flames disipated over time. And if you visited sites with educational content it also began to die, also, as it starts to get really low, it attempt to keep itself alive by loading up 'HOT' pages, to tempt the viewer to help them. Now my knowledge of meta tags makes me realise better ways of looking at these things, to make a more accurate organism to this one, but still, it's a fun idea.
