Web designer Ze Frank has created some of the most memorable internet-based entertainment in recent memory. His short web film "How to Dance Properly," created as a birthday party invitation in 2001 and emailed to a handful of people, became a bona fide viral phenomenon, and his website, zefrank.com, soon became a popular repository for dozens of games, videos and short films.
On March 17, 2006, Ze Frank began an experiment: To create a three-minute episode of his videoblog every day for one year. "The Show" has become an unbridled success, creating an audience of faithful viewers who not only comment in massive forums but also participate in open source projects, including the "Human Baton," where a vacationing college student was successfully passed off between audience members all the way across the U.S. and back. On Saturday, March 17, 2007, "The Show" will end. Ze spoke with Alissa Walker just after hosting the 10th Annual Web Awards at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas.
