Hope.Act.Change.

19 Feb

Got forwarded this amazing site (amazing because it was created in a week) from a friend who works at Syrup.

“This website is a place where people can come together to be a part of something bigger than themselves. People are able to submit their photos (and eventually videos and words) to the site and become a part of our “collective video”; a digitally rendered mosaic super-imposed on the Yes We Can Song video. This is the first in a planned series of data visualizations that will explore human collective intelligence and collaboration in an effort to bring about change – in this case, the course of American politics.

This has been an unbelievable project to say the least: a song written and  recorded by multiple major recording artists, musicians and actors in 1 day; a video concepted, shot and produced 3 days and posted to the web, garnering nearly 30 million views in one week! …and finally a bleeding-edge website conceived, designed, programmed by Syrup and posted live on the web in 1 week.”

Blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Not really into the subject matter, but the concept’s definitely different and the creative’s fabulous (wouldn’t say bleeding edge but WTF do I know).

    Syrup does nice stuff consistently. I am way jealous of that shop.

    The whole phenomenon occurring around Obama is a joy to watch. The manipulators and flacks fucked if they know what’s going on. They can only stand on the sidelines and watch what happens when the real deal comes along and people just make it all happen. Good viral strategy: be worth watching and you won’t need a fucking strategy, as we wrote here: http://freedompictures.ca/2008/02/21/obama-rocks/
