Valuable brands that play the social game

Among the most valuable brands, this report shows which of them work harder and better in the social media world. Starbucks and Dell are by far the most active. If you focus in the industry, obviously Media and Technology companies get the best scores, while finance ones get the worst.

Gauging Your Distraction - Interactive Feature

Another brilliant work from the NYT. The related story is this: Drivers Dismiss Risks of Multitasking on the Road, focusing not only on alcohol intake, but also on mobile texting.

Time Lapse: Mardi Gras

Time lapse is a technique where each video frame i captured at a slow speed an later reproduced at a normal rate of speed. The result is similar to the slow motion animation.

An aggregator with a newspaper's heart

Just wanted to show you the web I've been working on as PM for the last 9 months


Is a social aggregator (as digg.com or reddit.com) but with the the looks of a very 2.0 online newspaper. We wanted two (maybe three) main things:
- Give video and images the same relevance as text articles
- Be a confortable place to stay for everyone: social aggregators (even twitter) use to have very interesting content, but the interface is too hard and geek for a lot of people who looks for information in the internet.
- Avoid the feeling that this is a voting contest and that if Mr. Popularity sends an article it will be in the frontpage in few minutes. Of course we use the votes in order to create the top, but also give more relevance to a visit that comes from a mail or a tweet than to a visit from google and we think that if a reader goes to the original source that means he or she really liked it and is more valuable.

Hope you enjoy it

Man Man: freedom music

Man Man at their best. Is great to see both the energy they display when playing in the street with a bunch of kids as improvised companion and how do they finish their concert and lead the people as modern Hamelin flautists.
