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...
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
One of the hottest new applications of this moment must be Joost: a free, global broadband TV service. Less than a week ago I finally received my beta-version download-link. Should you be interested in testing/using Joost then leave a comment telling me why you should receive an invite. I will send Joost-invites to the 5 most original commenters. If you have no clue what Joost is about then check out the Joost commercial and the CBS preview video with V.P. David Clark. [b]Update:[/b] All 5 Joost invites have been given away. But perhaps you can get an invite from the people that I invited. Leave a friendly comment for your fellow Joost-testing Fresh Creators and you just might get lucky. :-) Related News: - Neave.tv - Turn Your Browser Into A TV Channel - Browse The Web On Your TV - Steve Jobs Presents Apple iTV

Recently more and more people are asking me why I don't Twitter. I still haven't made up my mind yet. The thing is that I'm looking for less information/communication stress and Twitter doesn't seem to help me achieve that goal. It just adds to it. But if you have a good reason why I should use it then let me know. In the meantime watch this great animation about a young man who struggles against the pressure to Twitter his life away.

Rein, a student at the Working Tomorrow graduation program, gives us a demo of how you can create a coloured barcode and scan it with your mobile. By adding colour the information capacity of the barcode increases. This leads to many new ways of using the barcode. For instance: put a coloured barcode on a poster, scan it with your mobile and directly get the ringtone of that particular brand on your phone. Other creative suggestions? Leave a comment.
