Students eh. Nothing better to do than come up with an interesting new game concept that’s hip and down with the kids.

Anyway.. this it Tag: The Power of Paint. And it’s just been awarded Best Student Game and Student Showcase at the Independent Games Festival.

Film Poster Remix

John Taylor’s Film The Blanks blog is an awesome experiment to abstract and / or reduce film posters.

Taking the art of the movie poster to an entirely new level, Taylor posts abstracted versions of popular and not-so-popular film posters on his blog, and readers guess the film based on the abstracted poster and clues.

The Physical Internet

paris1.jpg

This installation piece by Tim Schwartz is attached via a network cable to the internet where it monitors news and search results for “paris hilton” and “paris france” and displays an average result in real-time.

I love the idea of using physical objects to display data generated in the digital world and vice-versa.

Bakertweet from the peeps at Poke has been generating a lot of buzz recently.

Sermad has also pulled together some nice examples of the internet and real world coming together.

I wanna talk about this a bit more after I’ve sorted out the thoughts in my head.

Your Business Card Is Crap

Some killer lines in here from the greatest pitchman alive.

“It doesn’t fit in a rolodex because it doesn’t belong in a rolodex.”

What a jerk.. Haha.
