It sounds fun. It happens that I collect pagan chicken recipes, but I confess I don't understand why. It's hard to imagine how it could take that long for the camera to make the rounds, but ... ah right, who am I kidding? I've been guilty of gross procrastination a time or two myself. That may be an understatement.
Depending on the number of people participating, there could be multiple cameras. People from each camera team could post when they'd forwarded the camera on. The thrill of competition or the shame of public opprobrium could become an incentive to slackers to take a picture, forward the camera, and post their pagan chicken recipe.
Who does the developing and/or printing when it's all over? How/where are the images displayed?

Can we briefly debate the pros and cons about sending out two cameras? Thinking about the difficulties of managing two cameras, and also the spirit of the project, I thought perhaps one camera might be the way to go.
But since we've already established a two-camera precedent, I'd like to ask for everyone's input about sending out two cameras again. Remember there are 23 participants right now.
If we use two cameras:
PROS: Better chance we get at least one camera back; everyone can take two shots
CONS: The "Let's All Shoot 1 Camera" meaning is diluted somewhat; will likely take a longer for one camera to traverse the globe than two; higher odds of losing one camera than both (Round 7 notwithstanding).
What do y'all think?

I love the dynamic of two cameras, the (un)spoken competition of chasing them around the globe. There is a feeling of "us vs them", but the total comradery is wonderful. "Double your pleasure, double your fun--send two cameras instead of just one"!!!!!!!!!

Even though it does change the spirit somewhat, I also like the two cameras. And we are (within our repective groups) shooting one camera -- and if there are only 12 of us in each group, in theory we could take 3 shots each!
