Clever use of viral for road safety.
On Augmented reality, when a new technology emerges, one that defies a standard explanation in terms of development potential, it is always really interesting to see pedestrian applications.

5 Ways Brands Can Connect With Social Media Messaging
Interesting and worthwhile article I read lists these five points on brands being and staying social:
It had to happen. Google maps for IKEA.
A flake, beelzebub and the cutting room floor …
It is pretty self-evident why this 01:48 minutes of a Flake ad by Saatchi / Jonathan Glazer has been consigned to the cutting room floor. Cadbury deemed it too polarising following research – but then again, the 30′ spot has now to be targeted.
An article I read answers one of the questions I am asked frequently: “what is growth hacking?”.
Well it exists. In my view. But not as we know it.
Social media, in case there was any doubt, the latest figures from Marketing Charts confirm the absolute dominance of Facebook over other SM networking sites. The full #typed note is here …
A while ago, well at the end of 2011, I wrote a #typed note about an app I found to help you prepare for pitching by ensuring your voice intonation (pitch) and speed (be it slow or fast) so these could be monitored as part of your own voice training. The app, from Vocalytics co-founder Benoit Curdy, is now defunct.
Speech-language pathologist and University of Pittsburgh professor Jackie Gartner-Schmidt now explains that ensuring your voice isn’t thin and shaky voice is key as you come to present and to avoid this, suggests doing this easy exercise (which she calls one of her favourites).

Trend Watching ::
Steve Rubel of Edelman Digital has nominated five digital trends for 2009.
Satisfaction Guaranteed :: Customer care and PR are blending as consumers use social media to demand service
Media Reforestation :: The media is in a constant state of reinvention as it transitions from atoms to bits
Less is the New More :: Overload takes its toll. Gorging on media is out. Selective ignorance and friends as filters are in
Corporate All-Stars :: Workers flock to social media to build their personal brands, yet offer employers an effective and credible way to market in the downturn
The Power of Pull :: Where push once ruled, it’s now equally important to create digital content that people discover through search
The article and research paper is published on his blog.
Forbes have analysed the migration of people across the US – and created an interactive map to show where the more than 10 million Americans moved to – from one county to another during 2008.

Campaign by Loducca agency, Brazil
This is a really clever and creative pop-up campaign – created for a charity to clothe the homeless in Sao Paulo, Brazil by agency Loducca.
Somewhat unique is that the experiential project has been turned open-source – so the creative is being made available to other parties whom may want to replicate the initiative.
