FlashCamp Sofia 2009… the website

Only today I found out that the FlashCamp Sofia 2009 I spoke at last week had a website… Anyways, its probably one of the most well-build and extravagant one of its kind, so I thought it deserved a mention.
However, beware… its in Bulgarian…

I guess this is just a humble example on the professionalism and thoroughness with which Gugga seems to always approach tasks…

Positive Disturbance… by 1902 Software

From now and then you encounter something which stands a little out from the rest… Positive Disturbance is a double-edged sword because its very easy to cross the line from positive to negative.
Sometimes at Hello, we hit it right on getting positive disturbance to work perfectly, other times we either don’t push the envelope enough and leave room for more disturbance and sometimes we (most often driven by our clients) we cross the line and produce controversial online ads which to some cross the line into negative disturbances… however, back to my point.

1902 Software has managed to make a very positive disturbance in their presentation of an endorsement from one of their clients…

And 1902 has taken it one step further as they have actually created a small unobtrusive control panel to the disturbance which allows the viewer to stop and restart the ad… great stuff…

Free Beer…. first open source beer

FREE BEER is a beer which is free in the sense of freedom, not in the sense of free beer.

The project, originally conceived by Copenhagen-based artist collective Superflex and students at the Copenhagen IT University, applies modern free software / open source methods to a traditional real-world product – namely the alcoholic beverage loved and enjoyed globally, and commonly known as beer.

FREE BEER is based on classic ale brewing traditions, but with addded Guaraná for a natural energy boost. The recipe and branding elements of FREE BEER is published under a Creative Commons (Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5) license, which means that anyone can use the recipe to brew their own FREE BEER or create a derivative of the recipe. Anyone is free to earn money from FREE BEER, but they must publish the recipe under the same license and credit the original work. All design and branding elements are available to beer brewers, and can be modified to suit, provided changes are published under the same license (“Attribution & Share Alike”)

FREE BEER is based on Vores Øl v. 1.
FREE BEER v 3.0 is currently under revision by Skands Brewery.

Denmark is a cool place…

There is no doubt about it, even though I sometimes seem to be fed up with the culture for innovation and entrepreneurship in Denmark… A lot of people still manage to make it happen and come up with some great ideas and concepts…
One of these is the company Lila who are working on something truly cool and revolutionizing… The architecture is backed by no other than Cliff Hall (Creator and Innovator of PureMVC) and the development team features none other than Martin Rossil (Former Hello employee).
They have published a video which captures the excitement and dedication that the people behind the product has… check it out…

Khoda… so very cool art…

What if you watch a film and whenever you pause it, you face a painting? This idea inspired Reza Dolatabadi to make Khoda. Over 6000 paintings were painstakingly produced during two years to create a five minutes film that would meet high personal standards. Khoda is a psychological thriller; a student project which was seen as a ‘mission impossible’ by many people but eventually proved possible!
