Tribal NY show you the highs and lows of DXM abuse

DXM is an active ingredient in over-the-counter couch medicines. It's a cheap way to get high. And it's been around for a while. When I was in high school they called it Robotripping.

iBeacon, it's just like Minority Report but with more shopping

If you work in advertising you’ve probably heard vague and yet meaningful whisperings of this new iBeacon technology (Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 to be precise).

Tweet support to the protestors in Hong Kong with StandByYou #occupycentral

Use Occupier.hk/StandByYou to show your support to the protestors in Hong Kong directly via twitter. Your tweets are projected in realtime on a large wall in the current area of protest. This is a media art project in solidarity with the Occupy Central with Love and Peace action, by 'Add Oil' Machine' Sampson Wong. It works quite well, but lacks the website showing an image of your message on the wall, probably due to limitations of electricity/data and ability to lug gear around.

Adrian Belew launches a Kickstarter for his app called FLUX

We've talked a lot at Adland about how the advancement of technology has unfortunately eroded some of our ethical standards, especially when it comes to music. And yet for every musician rightly shaking their fist at what streaming, webcasting and big tech companies have done to their livelihood, a few are attempting to circumvent the issues.

Twitter's new "buy" button already selling Eminem & more

First out to try the new "buy" button in twitter are - surprise - musicians. You know, those stodgy luddites who can't adapt to the new world order of selling t-shirts instead of their song.

Twitpic is going to shut down.

Twitpic, the service on which I published that Kaka picture (pre-smartphone!), is shutting down. The reason? Twitter has been clumsily throwing their weight around via one of their lawyers threatening to lock Twitpic out of their API if Twitpic didn't give up their trademark. Lawyers.

So Twitpic are packing up the whole service and going home.
