Working on a cycle campaign in London using: http://popcorn.webmadecontent.org/

‘Popcorn Maker makes it easy to enhance, remix and share web video. Use your web browser to combine video and audio with content from the rest of the web — from text, links and maps to pictures and live feeds.’

In our group we’ve decided to focus on cycling in London and specifically to work.

I was amazed by the amount of apps, routes, fix your bike groups, group cyclists, d.i.y, safety classes and everything imaginable is out there!

I love the tech geeks who create these sort of things:

  • The page is almost 1 mile (1.6 Km) high and 800 feet (250 m) wide
  • it is probably the largest webpage on the internet, and surely the biggest one with a real reason for being so (it has to fit 7 billion people)
  • 7 Billion people so beautifully displayed together on a single webpage is a visual testament of the human condition of every single one of us, and all of us together, on our planet earth.

when will all this stop…..

We know Instagram is popular with the fashion industry, but the latest app to gain traction is Pose. Dubbed “the Instagram of fashion” by technology site Mashable, the photo shopping app allows users to share images of their outfits and tag them according to brand or style, and allows instant “shopability” with click-through links. There’s also an almost Pinterest-esque element to the app; it allows users to create “collections” of their favourite images for any theme they choose, such as “winter outfits” or “hair inspiration”.

“People who frequently update their friends on their diet and fitness progress are the ‘worst thing’ about social media, according to the results of a new survey.”

list of most annoying- I can only agree, but I would put attention seekers as number 1!

1.   Diet and fitness freaks – 53%

Users who share every detail of dieting and exercising.

2.    Meal sharers– 45%

Wannabe Jamie Olivers who post every image of their meal.

3.    Attention seekers – 42%

People who make unclear status updates that cry for people to ask questions. When asked these users often respond: “I would rather not talk about it”

4.    Gamers – 37%

Texas Hold ‘Em, Bejewelled Blitz. You know the type. Those who ask their friends to build an imaginary farm together or those who keep sending you free petrol for that racing game.

5.    Overly proud parents – 36%

These are parents who keep updating their followers on every one of their child’s successes in school/jokes/funny moments, posting lots of cheesy family photos and videos along the way.

6.    Oversharers – 32%

Did we really need to know that? Social media users who post incredibly personal details of their lives.

7.    Google maps lovers– 26%

Users who tell the whole world about that shopping centre they go to.

8.    Ticket sellers/promoters – 25%

Why am I tagged in a poorly-designed poster for an R ‘n’ B night at a club called ‘Volcano’? These are people who try to sell tickets for events or who keep inviting you to things you will never want to attend.

9.     Attention seekers #2 – 22%

–       Users who have a burning need to make a comment under every one of your photos or statements.

10.  Businesses – 19%

–       Small businesses who try to be friends with everyone in the hope that one day you will buy something from them.
