Flickr Enabled LCD Frame

flickr photo frameThinkGeek :: eStarling Wi-Fi Gmail / Flickr Enabled LCD Frame I’ve seen this kind of thing before and there’s something really nice about the thought of having a frame that you can subscribe to a Flickr RSS feed of your photographs, or your families photographs. Or just photographs of things you like.

But why do they have to look like something out of the Jetsons? I guess it wouldn’t be too hard to encase it in something that would fit into a real house…

Reflecting on Reflections


As Cal rightly says, reflections are going to end up as the blink tag of web 2.0 (or perhaps one of them). I started using Keynote instead of Powerpoint and was excited to find that it had a automatic reflection generator. I got bored of the novelty after 1 relflection-tastic presentation.

But now, thanks to this single piece of javascript (that can automatically make images on your website appear with reflections), I think it’s truly going to be all over for the humble reflection.

It’s kind of a shame, I liked them for a while. Oh well, cool things always have to end up being uncool, else they were never cool in the first place I guess.

Thomas Pink iPod ShirtWho’d have thought it. Thomas Pink bring out a shirt which holds your iPod in a concealed pocket, has Oyster card cuffs, and routes cables neatly. I almost wished I had to wear a suit to work. For about a nano-second.

I like adverts with good words

Tate Britain Hangover Collection AdvertThis is one of a set of adverts for Tate Britain that I like a great deal. They use words well. I stopped to read them. I enjoyed the reading. I felt better for having read it at the end. The Judges at Cannes seemed to like them too. For more check out the always inspiring site: The Hidden Persuader

Scalextric World Record – Zootube

scalextric trackHere’s a little site I’ve been working on. I’ve been keeping it a bit quiet because it’s a bit laddy (well a lot laddy in places). But it is appropriate for the target audience. It is for Zoo Magazine after all!

The site documents the exploits of Steve and Richard who’ve get given £10,000 to do interesting stuff rather than make glossy TV ads (yeah yeah I know). So far they’ve taken Keeley Hazell (a page-3 model) out to the seaside for the day (including a game of strip crazy golf), flown a fighter plane, and most recently (and impressively) built the biggest Scalextric track in the world. Check it all out here: » Scalextric

It’s really interesting to see what kind of distribution and reach you get by just using a blog and a few video sharing sites. Not sure I can give away exact numbers, but they’re looking pretty interesting – and with a bit of detective work I’m sure you could figure it out for yourselves ;-)

Stay tuned to see what happens with a little experiment in user generated content too…


Oh yes, I’m on holiday. Sorry forgot to say.

I’m in Thailand and I vowed I wouldn’t go near a computer for 2 weeks, but there was just one little tiny thing that I needed to use the internet for… That’s my resolution blown then.

Back soon x

So much good stuff…

I should be going to work right now. But I keep finding amazing things that I feel the urge to share…

Following on from ‘convert your website into a pattern’, here comes ‘what does your website sound like’. A site that turns your website into a MIDI file. Unfortunately the site seems to be over popular right now. But the results that the Make Blog made sound not 1/2 bad.

And also from the excellent Make Blog. These subway posters…
