world’s best presentation contest

organized by slideshare,

it’s really interesting to know that there’s a presentation contest in this world

from time to time, we’ve read come across some good presentations on slideshare, with strong visual and copy impact, i really like a good presentation so i really look forward to seeing the best presentation

here’s one of the entry this year by last year winner, pretty cool!

and the winner is actually a company, take a look at the before & after design:

but i would like to learn all their skillsets rather than to pay for their service

there’s a blog from apollo idea, and this is a worth reading post for ‘presenter’

they tell you a slide is not necessary in a presentation, of course, i can’t agree more

radiohead is the pioneer, again and again!

radiohead is cool again!!

really appreciate that they’re always 1 step in front of us! actually many steps…

“Radiohead just released a new video for its song “House of Cards” from the album “In Rainbows”.

No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images…”

the interesting thing is that you can interact with their 3D rendering, of course i have no idea how they do it

batman badsite

http://thedarkknight.warnerbros.com/

if you want to watch the batman, you might want to have a look at their official website as well

wow! it looks like a website in the past, it’s like a 3-yrs ago production

slow, flashy for the sake of flash, content is not attractive

not to mention any 2.0 / social media features, it really fails to meet an average quality website

especially when you click the menu (the position of the menu is so strange…), i was interested to the ‘friends of gotham’, then i clicked it, then OMG! you should check that out!!!!!!!

I dun really have great expectation on movie’s official site, however, this great movie really makes me disappointed

Google vs WPP, Omnicom, Interpublic, Publicis

http://mootee.typepad.com/innovation_playground/2008/06/google-is-advertising-agency-holding-companies-nightmare.html

this article, by Idris Mootee, has made a very good depiction on the advertising landscape.

Google Is WPP, Omnicom and Publicis’ Nightmare.

and I really like the modest head office of WPP!! really coooooooool

WPP, Omnicom, Publicis, Interpublic are the giants in advertising industry, they look quite like a dwarf in front of google.

What’s the relationship between Google & the Agency groups? Friend? Frienemy? Enemy?

It really depends on Google…I think Google can the one to change the game

very nice ad from dove

which is viral itself

a small news, but significant
