Eind vorig jaar had ik hier al aandacht besteed aan Flattr. Een dienst die het mogelijk maakt om kleine (en grotere) donaties te geven aan bloggers. Waarom zou je dat doen? Omdat die bloggers vaak iets brengen dat waarde heeft. Dat jou verder...
Dit zat er aan te komen. Foto's gekoppeld aan lokatie en tijd. WhatWasThere heet de website. Wat ik me wel direct afvraag is waarom ze niet alle foto's op Flickr met geo-tags en tijdstempel aan deze website hebben gekoppeld? En ook Youtube filmpjes...
Afgelopen woensdag was ik naar de bijeenkomst van de Social Media Club 073 geweest. In Den Bosch dus bij Theater aan de Parade. Voornaamste reden was dat ik erg benieuwd was naar de presentatie van Ron van der Sterren. Ron zou namelijk...
Prachtig gedaan! Film It Yourself laat je lekker schakelen tussen de videobeelden van gsm-camera's. Als we nu voortaan afspreken dat er maar 6 mensen hun gsm in de lucht houden tijdens een concert dan kan de rest gewoon van de muziek...
I love the concept behind Flattr! Now you can easily give a small donation when you run into content you like. This means creators of great content get rewarded by the people who enjoy it. The end of having to rely on...
I'm a big fan of Ze Frank. During this talk he presents some of his online projects. All of them are about creativity, connecting on a deep level and sharing.
I would like to give this game a try. It's called Dagaz and it trains your meditation level. The combination of gaming and meditation still strikes me as odd though. But perhaps that's just my narrow mind. ;-) Watch the video to...
De laatste Oranje-tweets en Oranje-foto's trekken hier automatisch aan je voorbij. Ik heb er zelf even naar zitten kijken en blijkbaar is de Oranje-twibbon erg populair op dit moment.
Afgelopen vrijdag heb ik weer de maandelijkse inspiratiesessie gehouden bij basic orange. Erg leuk! Uiteenlopende onderwerpen en verhalen gepresenteerd door medewerkers voor medewerkers. En deze keer kunnen jullie een deel van de presentatie hier bekijken omdat ik hem met...
The story Bandcamp isn’t yet another place to put your music. Rather, Bandcamp powers a site that’s yours. So instead of ads for Sexy Singles Chat, your fans see your design, your music, your URL. You retain all ownership rights, and Bandcamp just hangs out in the background handling the tech stuff. Why this story inspired me It shows that a bunch of dedicated people were able to come up with a solution for musicians around the world to start selling music in a professional and affiordable (free!) way. They don't charge bands that are selling small amounts and take a percentage from the sales that bands make that ARE selling a lot. Seems like a very reasonable way to do business, I'd say. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that more people will seize opportunities to get rid of old systems that are blocking creativity. A concept like Bandcamp proves it is possible to do this.
The story Google Goggles is a visual search app for Android phones. Instead of using words, take a picture of an object with your camera phone: Google Goggles attempts to recognize the object, and returns relevant search results. Goggles also provides information about businesses near you by displaying their names directly in the camera preview. Why this story inspired me Like other apps, for instance Layar, Google is now really starting to add all of the information on the web to real life objects. It brings the virtual and the real world together and in doing so it makes the world more transparent. Relevant information is instantly available. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that more companies will realize that the only way to be successful in the future is by being open.Bonus: Google Goggles visual search demo
The story Arabic Language Buddy by Sakhr gives English speakers a live speech translator into Arabic. Users can freely speak (or type) English sentences into their iPhone, then view and hear the Arabic translation immediately. Why this story inspired me An application like this makes it possible for people to communicate with other people that speak a totally different language. It connects people. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that through communication applications like these people will start to understand eachother's views better.
Don't let your cell phone see this. It will be jealous. Little World is an idea for handling contacts on your cell phone. It was conceived by a student at CIID in a 2 week course with Nokia.
Who says the news paper format is dead? Google Labs has something called Fast Flips that brings back the good old days of flipping pages. It's super fast.
Right now I own the Nokia N95 but my subscription is about to end so I'm looking around for a new device which is able to a) let me share content easily, b) create quality content, c) keep up with new developments, d) connect me easily with the right people. The iPhone 3GS seems to be able to do all this but after watching a presentation about the Motorola Cliq I am still having doubts about what to buy. The Motorola Cliq has a 5 megapixel camera, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, Motoblur interface and Android. Since the amount of Android apps is growing fast (10.000 apps) and more and more Android devices are launched, I am starting to consider the Cliq as a serious option. What do you think? An 8 minute demo of the Motorola Cliq is in the full post.
Okay, it takes a little bit of practice, and I don't recommend overstraining your eyes. But the new 'cross-eyed' 3d really works. Of course you can get one of those 3d glasses and see the 3d effect in of color, but going full screen and crossing your eyes is a much better result. What makes this a real Fresh Creation is the way it started. Like Google, Youtube gives employees the freedom to work on their own ideas 20% of the time. I believe 3D Youtube was the work of a guy named Yuri. He really got to work and you have to give credits to his employer for giving him the 20% 'playtime' to do so.More 3D experiments To see the full scope of the 3D project you have to go straight to Youtube. The technology is nog yet embeddable. Cattastic 3D goggles in 3D Eine Coole Tester

The newest version of Firefox supports open source video. Mark Surman, Executive Director of the Mozilla Foundation explains why keeping the internet open and free is important. For example, did you know you have to pay a licensing fee to broadcast MPEG over the internet?Bonus: Mike Hudack, CEO and co-founder of Blip.tv, explains to Beet.TV why open source video is important.
Google is asking you to help and share ideas to make browsing the web as fast as turning the pages of a magazine. If you compare the internet speed in the 'old ages' to what it is now, then we have come a long way. But the need for speed continues now that iPhone users are uploading videos and the need for high quality online video is rising. (via extend limits)
