Idea: HoloSelf 1.0

Here's an idea for a future product: HoloSelf 1.0 - an intelligent interactive personal hologram.
You may want to hit the "pause" button during your viewing because some text charts are a bit too quick.

HoloSelf 2.0 version will be multiplay (allowing real time interaction between different holoselves.)

George Lois on great and not-so-great creative ideas

Legendary magazine and advertising designer George Lois doesn't think much of Esquire's recent attempt to promote the battery-powered cover of its October issue as the start of a new age. He said as a former Esquire art director, he was "embarassed" by the "silly gimmick" that was not in keeping with the publication's stature.

and while i was on AdAge website this stupid ad was in front of my face... so i couldn't resist to comment on its lingo ...it's the word "own" that set me off ;))

Idea: International Vote of Sympathy (website)

I am not a US citizen, but if I had a chance (as an outsider) to cast my vote of sympathy - it would definately be the Doctor.

Then I thought, well... maybe it's not such a bad idea to set up a website that where people from all over the world could cast their VOTES OF SYMPATHY for the candidates of their choice. Obviously they won't be counted as "real" votes, but would provide a lot of insight into how people in different parts of the world feel/think about dofferent elections and their candidates..

Now, some critics of this idea may say that it's a private american issue, etc... BUT i wud say - not really. The US foreign policy of invading countries (under excuse of "preemptive strike") and muddling in foreign policies of other sovereign states in the last couple of decades made it a less private issue.

I also think that international community should cast their sympathy votes also during election times in France, Germany, Russia... etc. In short any country in the world where nataional / foreign policies have a significunt effect on the rest of the world.


RonPaul2008dotcomluv sent me email informing that such a website already exists: http://www.whowouldtheworldelect.com

thanx, RonPaul2008dotcomluv

Message: Things will be gone. Experience is forever.

Election poop signs

Inspired by dog poop left behind on the sidewalk and the upcoming presidential election, Greg Beauchamp, cofounder of creative shop Granite Pass, created toothpick-sized flags with such inscriptions as "Healthcare Reform," "Campaign Tactics" and "Maverick Record" beneath "McCain."Beauchamp has planted the micro-signs in the piles not picked up by dog owners across Venice, Cali.

The Ladders Money Experiment

Fallon, Minneapolis and @radical.media's Derek Cianfrance have broken out a hidden camera stunt to anchor a thought-provoking direct mail campaign for recruiting site The Ladders.

Aimed at getting the client's foot in the door with recruiters at Fortune 1,000 companies, the agency sent out cases with $100,000 in fake money along with this video.

The stunt is a bit similar to the idea i had awhile ago: 100.000.000 $ Lucky Briefcase but with a different message.

The Village Petstore and Chargoal Grill

Eschewing his characteristic rat murals for the project, Banksy has created The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill, a showcase of animatronic foodstuffs, packaged meat products, pet supplies and a monkey watching Discovery Channel primate porn surrounded by ravaged pizza, an empty pack of Marlboro Lights and a crushed can of Bud. The monkey breathes, scratches himself and follows the action onscreen with his eyes, with a discarded National Geographic in reach:

A pearls-wearing bunny applies make-up and wiggles its nose at a medium rodent-sized vanity:

witty socio critique...
