Link: “Top 10 Real-Time Web Products of 2010″

“Last year, when we looked at the top real-time Web products of 2009, we predicted that in 2010 the real-time Web was “likely to become a standard expectation on sites all around the world”. Indeed, as we look back on the last year we find that many of the big innovations in terms of the real-time Web come in the form of implementations by companies like Google and Facebook. At the same time, there are still smaller players in the realm that have changed how (and how fast) we expect information on the Web to move and people interact.” Weiterlesen bei ReadWriteWeb

Link: “Google’s Body Browser is a Google Earth for Human Physiology”

“Google has mapped just about every traffic artery you could ever want to locate on Google Maps, but what if the thruway you’re looking for isn’t on any road atlas?

Link: “Blackberry Empathy Concept”

“For their sponsored project held by RIM Blackberry at the Art Center College of Design, designers Kiki and Daniel had to incorporate an interface that integrates human emotions with the concept of social networking. The result of this exercise was the Empathy concept. The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”. Spec-wise it features a transparent OLED screen that becomes transparent when not in use and opaque during interaction. The front is all touch surface, while on the back there is a physical keyboard.” Weiterlesen bei Yanko Design. Weitere Informationen: The Dotted Line (‘Your Blackberry can do what?”)

Link: “Defacebook”

“In August, I sat down with the founders of the new social-networking system Diaspora. Earlier that day, they’d given me a peek at the prototype for the service, which looked familiar: It had “status statements” and comments and photos, displayed on a clean, neutral interface. But as the name suggests, their project was intended less as an imitation of Facebook than as an escape route from it — a path to freedom for those who had come to fear the dark side of the social network.” Weiterlesen bei New York Magazine

Neue Gegenwart Nr. 59

“Man sollte den Nahbereich, in dem man als gerätelose, pure Person existiert, nicht aus dem Blick verlieren. Nahsehen ist das unterschätzteste Nichtmedium des 21. Jahrhunderts – um es mal paradox auszudrücken.”

Chris Anderson: How web video powers global innovation
