HitRECord – The First Crowd Sourced Television Show
Ever wanted to be on TV? HitRECord is a production company with an interesting web site led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The idea is that you upload any creative content – videos, songs, artwork, photos, poetry, etc. and other HitRECord members can add to them, remix them and morph them. The best pieces are taken and edited into a TV show that you can watch on the Pivot network. If any of the work is used in a money making endeavor, the profits are split 50/50 with the artists whose work was used. Crowdsourced art – an interesting concept / experiment. I’ve posted some artsy content of my own to try it out – maybe someday I’ll be a star!
What’s the difference between a Google Doodle and a Golden Doodle?
How about a $30,000 scholarship and an additional grant of $50,000 for your child’s (or niece, cousin’s, etc.) school? If you know any creative kids between kindergarten and 12th grade (which to my mind is most kids), encourage them to enter Google’s contest to create a Google doodle. What’s a Google doodle? Occasionally Google changes its home page graphic logo to mark a special occasion or to honor an important person. This contest was created to get kids to imagine what the future could be like and answer the question, “If you could invent one thing to make the world a better place, what would it be?” Learn more about it in Lisa’s blog post here.
Now what’s a golden doodle? Look no futher than Roberto, ArcStone’s Director of Corporate Culture. Not to be outdone by Lisa, he wrote his first ever blog post recently on ArcStone.com. Note the detailed infographic on where he likes to be petted. This post got a surprising amount of traffic, I wonder what would happen if we had our lol cat Yogi write a blog post…
This is a fascinating new website that enables you to find top content and top influencers on just about any topic. Great for recruiting bloggers or finding out what’s currently hot in your industry. A quick search enables you to find out what content and which people are getting the most likes, follows, etc. It’s free right now while it’s in beta – very well done and highly reccomended.
In honor of Valentine’s day, Richart chocolates is offering special chocolate blends inspired by three French love poems (included in the box). Lisa and I visited this chocolatier when we were in Paris a few years ago, I don’t think you can go wrong with a box of these for your sweetie. Bon appétit, ma amour!
