You may notice – I have opened it up and taken away the shackles of a number… I might even start categorising in future – you know for the thousands that might read this.
1) First up this little oddity that came through early in the week – Banners On Flies. This is kind of what it says on the tin – oddly they have tied advertising banners to flies (yes the ones that swarm round poo) at a trade show and then let them fly about.
2) Next up the new Twitter revelation that is – LISTS – I notice they had introduced these but I wasnt to sure how I would find them useful – one read of this article by Dave Troy (via @martinbailie) and I was up to speed seeing how they are useful and also the future potential of commercialisation. I even set some up myself – so I can view them and perhaps cut out some of the less interesting tweets and get straight to those people I truely enjoy reading/learning something new from.
via @martinbailie also with the line –
I to like this idea, going to track the book down and have a read – sounds interesting.
4) You might have noticed Google’s graphics this week – we saw and awesome Wallace and Grommit one but then the past couple of days has been 40th Anniversary Seasame Street images. Loving the cookie monster.
Now over to resident eagle eye’d design guru @aprildesign, this week he has supplied some things he like for his own dedicated section
