We were in New York attending Internet Week in May 2012, learning new things and getting creative fuel for future projects. We created this responsive website where we were feeding all our Instagrams, Foursquare check-ins and Tweets to give a picture of what happened and what we were up to. Check it out!

Adidas and MTV in Japan team up for this new take on the good old stone scissors paper game. Only this time, your Twitter followers are at stake. Simply log on to your account and decide the number of friends you want to bet. Then choose your weapon. Mind you, it’s all symbolical so you wont loose any followers for real. As Japanese campaigns goes this is highly confusing for a European audience, but the graphics are great and the sound effects crazy.

Among the many Twitter-based campaigns and apps, this is definately one of the more useful. By entering your Twitter name, the site analyses your tweets and decides how hetero you are. Oh, and it’s part of the campaign for Stockholm Pride (Plant is a 68 % hetero company, by the way).

Nice use of Twitter. The banner searches Twitter for “I need alcohol” and “I am pregnant” and then displays them together for an interesting and though-provoking result. Still waiting for the first use of Twuffer in a banner.
Michael Jackson may have died, relocated to a timeshare on Hawaii with Kurt Cobain or whatever. But he’s still on our minds whether you like it or not, as this neat Twitter thang shows. Great song.

14 years ago, a Gartner analyst named Jackie Fenn created the Gartner Hype Cycle — a chart that maps the way media and consumers perceive technology as it is introduced into culture.
Gartner just updated the Hype Cycle for 2009. It predicts a big backlash coming for e-Book readers, microblogging and cloud computing.
How does the hype cycle work? First the technology is invented, or “triggered.” This leads to an incredible amount of hype, very quickly. Then not much happens right away, people get disappointed, and the tech is mired a “trough of disillusionment.” But then, almost so slowly it’s hard to notice, we enter a “slope of enlightenment,” where we realize just how useful this technology will be. Then we hit the “plateau of productivity,” where we all know what we have in the tech and use it for what it is.

Twistory takes all the crap tons of data that the Twitter users submit and visualize it in a very simple way. Pretty cool.
