Black Sunshine coffee releases your inner Hostel.

Or is that cartel? Caribbean Canadian coffee drinkers—rejoice! —it’s what’s for breakfast! Pure Black Sunshine may just be about the darkest online coffee experience you will ever have. Until, you know, they invent the augmented reality super coffee tasting device that is. The video explains the approach, but basically, they equate coffee with the rarest of drugs—expensive as hell and just as dangerous.

Google execs found guilty of privacy violations in Italy

Back in 2006, a group of Italian teenagers filmed a video as they assaulted another teenager who had downs syndrome. They uploaded the film to Youtube, where it was pulled only after topping the most viewed list and stirring up a national outrage in Italy a full two months later. Viva Downs, an Italian Down Syndrome support group, argued that the video should never have appeared in the first place and filed a complaint. Today the judge found chief legal officer David Drummond, global privacy counsel Peter Fleischer and former CFO George Reyes guilty of privacy violations and they received suspended six-month jail sentences.

Google Italy execs convicted over bullying video

The video, which was uploaded to Google Video in 2006, showed four teenagers beating and insulting a 17-year-old disabled student infront of about a dozen bystanders in Turin.
Google Italy, which is based in Milan, eventually took down the clip nearly two months later but not before the video caused a national outrage.
None of the executives were involved in the production or uploading of the video, but prosecutors argued that as it had topped a most-viewed list it should have been noticed sooner.

Italian verdict on Google privacy sets dangerous precedent

The decision is sure to affect all manner of Internet companies, not just Google. Italian law says that Internet service providers are not liable for content posted by users, but Internet content providers are a different story—they are responsible for the things they "publish." Google had argued that it falls into the former category, but Judge Oscar Magi disagreed.

The Google blog calls it "A serious threat to the web in Italy"

.....If that principle is swept aside and sites like Blogger, YouTube and indeed every social network and any community bulletin board, are held responsible for vetting every single piece of content that is uploaded to them — every piece of text, every photo, every file, every video — then the Web as we know it will cease to exist, and many of the economic, social, political and technological benefits it brings could disappear.

This shit just in on Juggalo News (not safe for people who don't like swearing)

The parody potential of Juggalos is obvious, as the 2009 Gathering Of The Juggalos Infomercial looks like a funnier than usual SNL joke-ad, though it's a real ad.

Code Organ: Make your site sing

If Adland sang in the shower, what would it sound like? It would sound like this, which for some reason makes me think I've coded something inelegantly as it's a bit out of tune... ;) What does your site sound like? Check out Code Organ from where you can tweet and Facebook any sites music.

This clever little toy was coded by Rodrigo Pereira and designed by Andy Goodridge at DLKW, London.

The Social Media Guru

Adweek talks about social hat tipping the Social Media Guru film where the client asks : "But, how will you translate this into sales and revenue?"

Despite the easy laughs at the expense of self-proclaimed experts, big brands are on the hunt for help in figuring out their approaches to connecting with consumers on Facebook, providing service on Twitter and instituting internal social media guidelines. Because it can touch everything from communications to marketing to customer service to product development, social media has created a muddied playing field that some see as ripe for creating agency opportunities.
"There's demand in the marketplace for creating a new type of agency," said Sean Corcoran, an analyst with Forrester Research. "The question is whether that's viable long term."
Clients like Audi and Chrysler are on the hunt for social media shops, according to agency executives. Powered, a vendor of brand community sites, last week rolled up three different social media agencies, Crayon, Drillteam Marketing and StepChange Group to form a 70-person social shop.
