Yet another Twitter Feed visualizer!
This is Twistori. The site claim it to be a “First Step in An Ongoing Experiment” which I personally think is a load of self delusional bollocks quite frankly. However, I do believe this site to be a little gem!!

Twistori tracks Tweets with six specific verbs, “Love”, “Hate”, “Think”, “Believe”, “Feel” and “Wish”. The results are compelling reading and perfect thought starters when looking for inspiration, i.e. great to get a little snapshot of people’s core thoughts and feelings at any point and very randomly.

Well worth a look!

3D out of a box!

This is amazing! This dude looks as though he has created a form of digital printing that can be morphed into a fully-rendered 3D objects once it has been filmed…im assuming. To be honest, I have no idea how this works but I like it, a lot!!

Just stumbled across a very cool Tweet Buzz tracker/visualizer thingy – Twittermeter, plots out Tweets relating to specified keywords in an easy to read line graph over a period of time.
Easy to present any interesting findings to clients etc. in handy graph format.

Electric Tiger Land

this is brilliant – Asics have created a one meter illuminated Onitsuka Tiger shoe as part of their ‘Made of Japan’ strategy, the shoe looks amazing and check out the ‘making of’ video; true Japanese craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Nippon Ichi!!

Getty offering music search

Off the back of the recent news that Flickr are now offering video uploads to users, Getty now seem to be offering music within their search engine. Check it out here.
Obviously there are no Stones or Dylan tracks on file but it’s a fairly extensive library of independent artists with a wide range of genres.

the pin drops....

Whoopee-do. News from NMA is that ‘major Premiership football clubs are preparing to incorporate user-generated content and social networking into their sites’. Wow! There’s a novel thought, for a business that is based on what is essentially weekly social gatherings where fans all over the country watch their team play and bond together before and after the match to discuss what went wrong, what went well, how crap the ref was, who to buy/sell next; and only now do the clubs realize the value in giving fans from all over the world to share this experience that comes with following their football team even for people who aren’t lucky enough to go to the game every week or live miles away from England.

The problem is that they have left it so late now that I doubt they will be able to compete with all the unofficial forums, message boards and communities that have been around for a good few years now and who have cemented a very loyal user base. I just cant believe its taken this long for football clubs to realise the potential value in extending the match-day experience around following your team to an online world. What’s more worrying is that major clubs like Arsenal are still ‘refusing to be drawn on it’s strategy’ when asked about this, I thought we were a forward thinking club?...

Tweet Clouds

Tweet Clouds is a great Twitter app. that allows you to generate tag clouds instantly based on words used in (yours or anyone else’s) Tweets.
It’s nice and easy to use. Throws up some worrying results too!

Have a go here

This is one of the funniest online ‘games’ ive ever played, funny because its so painfully bad.
I urge you to read the full instructions on the web page before you fire up the game as the description of the game itself is genius!!

Who thinks of game concepts like this?

Radiohead - Nude

Those crazy, forward-thinking rockers have done it again and are now are offering fans the chance to officially remix their new track, Nude. Fans can go online and vote for the best track. I love the site itself, simple, easy to use and cool.

Great idea to really engage their fans and smart move by Radiohead to take ownership of some great (and not so great) remixes but in doing so they have also ensured that that the remixes will be of a high standard/quality as all the tunes will be put together using high quality samples from the song.

Cannot believe how bad the top rated remix is though…

This is my favourite.

fred and sharon rule...

I love this.

Im not sure why I do but I just do. I especially like the great 'animations' these guys can offer too.

Shame their own official site doesnt take their business further!

hacking digital billboards

This is very cool. An artist known as “Skullphone”(great name) has hacked into a load of Clear Channel’s digital billboards in the States to display his skull imagery.

Takes subverting advertising spaces to a whole new level and almost creates an illegal propaganda campaign on a massive scale using high impact platforms simultaneously, I imagine this would be the kind of stuff Banksy would do if he lived in the world of Blade Runner.

Could this be the start of an age where graf/street/urban (whatever you want to call it) artists can take their messages/artwork and literally take over official brand spaces in an instant, rather than having to incorporate messages within pre-existing advertising using spray paint or stencils?

This could be a bad thing as there have been some funny results from ads that have been tinkered with in an old school way
