DigiRedo does Prague

It seems that New Media is really international because we don’t seem to be able to stop travelling. For Jacob Fleming, one of our clients, we went to Prague to fim their congress on Public Private Partnership in Central and Eastern Europe. An excerpt from their website:

“Central and Eastern Europe continues to be a very active market for PPP projects. There is a growing trend to analyze the opportunities that PPP schemes offer. The key drivers of successful projects tends to be in more education and practical examples, availability of EU grants and improvement of legal or institutional PPP framework.”

Very interesting subject of which you can learn more here. We sure met a lot of interesting people.

Soon on our TV channel: the impression of the PPP congress.

DigiRedo does Rotterdam

Today we have been on location in Rotterdam and Zeeland (South West of the Netherlands) for shooting the podcast ‘Oliebollen’ (Dutch Doughnut). Beautiful day, and a lot of fun with the street interviews. All kuddos to Kurt, an old-time friend and our interviewer for this assignment. He did a great job asking the right questions to the baker and the Oliebol Expert, and find some people on the street to eat an Oliebol and answer his two famous questions.

Meet Priscilla

Priscilla helped us out for a viral marketing campaign we’re currently shooting. She is the main star in the movie. Since it’s cross-media all over the place, she’s also appearing in the printed marketing material.

Priscilla is not only a professional model, she also likes sushi.

How does the internet look like?

Most of us have seen it before, pictures showing lines across the screen which should visualize the internet. I was never really impressed with these pictures. Until I saw the latest pictures from the Dimes Project on Chris Harrison’s blog.

Quote from his entry: “The Dimes Project provides several excellent data sets that describe the structure of the Internet. Using their most recent city edges data (Feb 2007), I created a set of visualizations that display how cities across the globe are interconnected (by router configuration and not physical backbone). In total, there are 89,344 connections.

The first rendering displays the relative densities of Internet connectivity across the globe. The stronger the contrast, the more connectivity there is. It is immediately obvious, for example, that North America and Europe are considerably more connected than Africa or South America. However, it is important to note that this only reflect density of connections, and not usage. Hundreds of people may utilize a single connection in an internet cafe, often the only form of connectivity people have access to in developing nations.

Additionally, three graphs showing network connections were created. I should note this is not the first time graphs like this have been created – I’ve seen dozens of variations, most being practical in nature (e.g. cable locations, bandwidth). I decided to pursue an aesthetic approach – one more visually intriguing and interesting to explore than useful. The intensity of edge contrast reflects the number of connections between the two points. No country borders or geographic features are shown. However, it should be fairly easy to orient yourself.

See for yourself.

May The Force Be With You

You walk around on the exhibition floor of the Podcast and New Media Expo, you see two familiar faces (which is kinda strange 6,000 miles away from home) and wonder in which movie the guy played. Guess what. It was their own movie. Made possible by the rapid advancing technologies.

Hollywood, beware…

See their work in action here and here.

Yeah, we got them!

Whatever you think of the US of A, they’re able to bring you a joy of undescribable proportions…
