Whoohooo! Google has finally added “walking” to Google Maps! I gave it a quick try and it didn’t jump across any parks or small alleys yet, but the routes are still draggable which rocks! Hopefully they can mix it up one day with train and bus routes since I do that!
Radiohead again innovating with new ways in seeing music!!! I’ve seen tons of great innovations in data visualization, but its takes some gut to make it mainstream like Radiohead! Remember that creativity is as much about perspective than anything else!
Full story and behind the scene videos here.
Hmmm, good visual food for thought.
I’ve had several managers with great visions assigning tasks based on their vision… then I’ve had great managers with great visions that believe in others visions as well… Guess which vision was more successful.
I’ve been playing around with Viewzi.com for a few days and must admit, it’s a visual pleasure to tinker with. There’s zoomii, Searchme, redzee, oskope, and a handful of other sites that intensify the visual sensors, but Viewzi definitely takes the cake in delivering high quality design within their interface and brand.
I could talk about them for some time, so I’ll just point my finger to their site, tell you to type in something like “food” then press enter and move your mouse around everywhere. Also check out their story through Viewzi.tv and their corporate site which isn’t at all corporate.

oooo sooo very true! Brands that create amazzzing products still survive even when their broken. I love twitter, hate it when it’s down, but still use them!
“Possibly the most wonderful thing in the world that a brand can achieve is love so strong that users worship your failures.
Twitter has been a victim of its own success. So many new users, so much volume that the application crashes regularly. Sometimes hourly. From the getgo, they’ve managed to brand their “failure screens” in true twitteresque flavor. When Twitter is down beyond repair, users get the screen that is now lovingly referred to as the “fail whale.”
Here’s the thing. Despite the failures, Twitter fans remain users. And they joke about the down time, the failed tweets and the fail whale. Someone’s even produced a line of Fail Whale merchandise.
Can your brand generate that kind of love? Can you fail consistently, over and over and STILL keep your customers fans? Not many brands can. And that’s a wonderful testament to the power of Twitter. Tweet. Tweet.”
hahaha, this video is great! I’m not sure how they sync the software together to pong 3 way on their iPhones, but I love the idea in tiling multiple screens for a larger interface.
Anyhow, besides the cool tech, you should have your sound on so you can hear the hilarious “ping” pooOOoOong” noises the players make as they play … pongggg!
I’ve mentioned Chris Jordan’s work and amazing presentations throughout this year, and now he’s online for ya’ll to watch!… so go watch it here or above via TEDtalks.
Buy his amazing book Running the Numbers” here.
Some rather creepy, crawly, somewhat neat snow globes.

A few months back I attended and blogged the “Art Center: Serious Play” conference which I’d highly recommend anyone to attend to get inspired and get serious about playing (working). They just came out with a series of videos about some students pumping out some work! check it out!
“The Art Center of Pasadena, California is linking its upcoming Art Center Design Conference with the launch of Wrap Magazine, the next incarnation of the Fish Wrap publication. The theme for this joint project is “Serious Play,” a term which encompasses all the work done at the Art Center.
In this episode of Designing Minds, eight student illustrators and eight student graphic designers combine their varying skill sets for a common goal. This collaboration sparks innovative concepts and intense connections.

There once was a guy named Matt who quit his job to travel the world. In each location, he recorded himself dancing like a goofball and made a Youtube Videos that spread like crazzzy. The web world sees it, everyone smiles, and he gets sponsored to do a few more world trips dancing! Apparently he’s made the journey again this year, to dance across the world one adventure at a time, but this time, everyone knows him, hence he not only dances by himself, but with people around the world! Watch this amazing video and smile!!!
Damn! I love this, I’m jealous, I want to travel… keep up the rocking work Matt! I’ll keep watching as I always have cause goofy dances around the world make me smile. Reminds me a bit of the “Global Laugh Session” we had at Pangea Day!
