The Mobile Index

For you that always thought we needed a dictionary for the jargons of the mobile/digital world, check out The Mobile Index

One thing I did not know is that there was a term (Nomophobia – See video above) to label this addictive attachment that we have to our smartphones. I bet there are many more in the list that I need to check out.

Which one stand out for you? Can you suggest some that should be there?

This Exquisite Forest

This Exquisite Forest is an online collaborative art project that lets users create short animations that build off one another as they explore a specific theme. The result is a collection of branching narratives resembling trees.

What that means is that you can look in the ‘forest’ for animation seeds and build upon those. This is a great exercise of pure creativity and collaboration utilizing the power of the web. The concept remind me of the www.thejohnnycashproject.com where anyone could design 1 frame of the Johnny Cash video. If you clicked the link you’ve seen the AMAZING result that the collaboration produced.

This is the power the web has on design, it completely breaks conventional paradigms.

Are you planting a seed?
