Been meaning to post about this for a while now.  Google put together a presentation of loads of different Internet related projects that people have done.  Next time you see some piece of media highlighting how bad the Internet is, pick one of these at random and redress the balance a little.

Fantastic stuff.  Tech at its best.

T-Mobile ad

February 4, 2009 at 6:02 pm (computers, interesting, internet, places) (, , , , , , , )

After noting improv everywhere the other week, I’ve started seeing the T-mobile ad on the TV and around and about, which is a very similar sort of thing. It gives the impression of an improvised, flash-mob style dance routine at London’s Liverpool St station.

One of the curious things for me though, is seeing the ad on those TV ad screens in stations and the Tube finishing with a URL that directly mentions YouTube.

It shows what a ubiquitous brand YouTube has become, sort of like how people have started saying they are ‘just off to google for something’ (although I’ve yet to see someone google for their keys … but with RFID and predictions about the ‘Internet of things‘, maybe one day that even that will come).
