John Nack on the “History of the Internet”

Clock Mini IconMarch 9th, 2010 written by

The blog post isn´t really new, but just found some really nice words on the “History of the Internet” on the blog of John Nack — Thanks :)

Melih Bilgil’s The History of the Internet tells, well, you know, using minimal lines but loads of attention to detail. (The fly-over of Cuba is terrific.) Adobe designer Ethan Eismann writes, “My new personal mission in life is to bring this level or higher of engaging instruction to an Adobe welcome screen near you.”

Clock Mini IconFebruary 18th, 2010 written by

David Carswell contributed a Microsoft Visio 2007 stencil incorporating the PICOL SVG iconset (090316).  This stencil is an import of the SVG icons, with aspect-ratio protection applied, and is released under the same license as PICOL itself.

You can download the Visio 2007 stencil HERE

I coulnd´t check the file, beacause I have no Visio. If there are any problem please contact David :)

Pictodeck is just what it sounds like — a deck of pictograms. It’s a collection of over 700 vector pictograms taken from four different sets: PICOL, Android Icons, Pictoico and Freshpixel. Aaron Richard, the creator of Pictodeck, has converted all of these sets and made them available for Keynote users.
Pictodeck is available for download on Aaron Richards website.

Advertising on the third screen
in the fifth dimension

Clock Mini IconJanuary 4th, 2010 written by

Here I found a nice presentation by Aaron Richard he made together with Freestyle Interactive, Heat, and Wieden + Kennedy on trends and innovation in mobile marketing.

»The purpose of this deck was to delve into advertising on the third screen (mobile) in this new fifth dimension—where data and information exists in a cloud all around you. This fifth dimension isn’t quite tangible without a device, but if you have an iPhone you can look at a restaurant through your phone and see every review that people left on Yelp or all the tweets tagged with that location.« Aaron Richard
