Robin Good's curator insight, January 17, 2013 12:04 PM


The new FlowPlayer Designer allows you to design and customize the look and branding of your own video player and then it generates the code to embed it on your web site.


If you publish video clips that are not publicly hosted (as when they are published on YouTube) but reside on your own server or on cloud services like Amazon S3, then you must have a video player to serve your video content on your site or private membership site.


With Flowplayer Designer you can integrate your own company logo, select between nine pre-designed looks, control the colors of the individual elements of the player and set what controls are visible and available to the final viewer.


Free to use.

For its ‘No-Noise’ installation to celebrate the post-holiday quiet, London-based luxury store Selfridges has introduced de-branded, no-logo products.

From a Heinz Tomato Ketchup bottle and a Marmite jar, to a pair Levi’s 501 straight-leg jeans and Beats By Dre earphones—the ‘The Quiet Edit’ collection revolves around recognizable packaging devoid of all brand logos.

Ingenious Font Summons Icons With A Few Keystrokes

Ingenious Font Summons Icons With A Few Keystrokes | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

That’s the whole idea behind Symbolset, a collection of typefaces that you generate simply by typing a word. Once you license their fonts, those pesky little images we always need for projects, from sunshine to mailboxes to social-networking buttons, can magically appear when you type keywords like “sunshine,” “mailbox,” or “twitter.”

 

(...)

 

There’s no need for metadata annotation because that’s built right into the font itself. Yet another advantage is that you can tweak Symbolsets with CSS.

Plus-One This: Proof That Google Plus Will Prevail

Plus-One This: Proof That Google Plus Will Prevail | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it
Remember when Google Plus “flopped"? Well, it didn’t.

 

(...)

It has shown the will to resist sexy, positive impacts to the bottom line in order to hold onto who it is as a company and this is a good example of that. So how does Google do this?

 

Step one: Corral every single blogger. Have you used Google lately and noticed faces appearing next to certain posts? That’s called Google Authorship--bloggers can link their Google Plus profile to the content they create.

 

Step two: Attract every single small business and at least one of their employees. Want your business to appear on Google Maps, Google Local, et al., so that you can tell your prospective customers where you are, what you sell, and when you are open? Yup, you guessed it--you need a Google Plus Local Business page now. But again, Google isn’t forcing your hand, it’s adding value.

 

Step three: Convince you, because all of those other things that you already love get better. Maybe you’re addicted to that new augmented reality game Ingress. Maybe your Google Plus profile makes it way easier to win. Or maybe you want better music, movie, or book recommendations--look no further than Google Plus. Want to find a community of skiers or chefs or race car drivers with a flick of the wrist? Or perhaps that hilarious video about that thing that you once emailed to a friend but can’t quite remember enough about it to find again? When you have Google Plus, those communities and that video just appear when you search for your best guess.

 

The point is, once Google Plus has every blogger, every small business, lots of gamers, lots of YouTubers, etc., actively using the product, they will continue to use all that new data to make even more of their products more awesome.

'Hashtag' named word of the year by the American Dialect Society

'Hashtag' named word of the year by the American Dialect Society | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Every year, the American Dialect Society nominates and then votes on a word of the year, and for 2012 it's "hashtag." It beat out other nominated words like "YOLO," "Fiscal cliff," and "Gangnam style." The ADS' chair of the New Words Committee, Ben Zimmer, said that the word was a "ubiquitous phenomenon in online talk" in 2012. He's not wrong, the term broke out from its origins on Twitter to more common usage, culminating in Newsweek's last ever print cover. Zimmer added that "hashtag could sometimes be heard in oral use introducing a snappy metacommentary on what had just been said."

 

The ADS promotes its word of the year over others by dint of its academic members and lack of commercial interests. In years past, "Occupy," "App," and "Plutoed" have all taken the honor — so there's no promise that "Hashtag" will have real staying power. If nothing else, the award for the word "Hashtag" could offer some future consolation to the baby that was reportedly named "Hashtag."

The Real Faces of Immigration

The Real Faces of Immigration | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

By Gabrielle Kennedy / 17-01-2013

 

Like in most developed countries across the globe, immigration has evolved into a sensitive and complex issue in the Netherlands – a conflux of emotions, insecurity and concerns.  Some parts of the political world – both here and abroad – have capitalized on that mental uncertainty to do little more than aggravate what must now be called a problem.

 

DAE (Design Academy Eindoven) graduate Dick Bakker (Izaak Imagery) delved into this issue creating a series of films titled “Under Construction: the Netherlands.”  In it the infamous Dutch residency identity card – compulsory for all legal foreigners to carry on their person – was portrayed, but in the bottom left hand square where a still photograph usually sits, he beamed video footage of the person living life.

The result was to give these normally anonymous foreigners an identity – moving them beyond the mere statistic they are only ever known as.

Bakker’s larger point is that the ongoing debate does not represent the true face of immigration.  

For this project he consulted with immigration lawyer Jeremy Bierbach, a naturalized Dutchman whose legal practice specializes in this very issue.

 

(...)

 

“My inspiration for critical thinking comes from ‘The History of the Passport’ by John Torpey,” Bierbach says.  “These sorts of identity documents are quite recent.

Insights About The Coming Era Of Interactive Design

The 18 minute "Connecting" documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry's thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming "Internet of things." Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a "super organism" capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world.

Speech Recognition For Everyone: Text Dictation Comes To Your Browser with TalkTyper

Speech Recognition For Everyone: Text Dictation Comes To Your Browser with TalkTyper | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Robin Good: TalkTyper is a web-based app that allows you to talk into any microphone connected to your computer and to have your words immediately typed and ready to copied and pasted into any traditional document.

 

TalkTyper goes beyond simple real-time transcription by offering you:

-> alternative words and interpretations

-> the ability to edit the transcription on the fly

-> the option to immediately save the transcribed text in a special editable area, and to then send it out via email, Twitter, or to translate automatically into another language.

 

I have personally tried the app, which is extremely simple to use, and I must say that as long as you do not use fancy words, and keep your pace rather slow, TalkTyper does an impressive job of capturing and transcribing your words into actual text.

 

It is possible also to insert punctuation marks while you talk by calling them up specifically during dictation. 

 

TalkTyper works in over 16 different languages including English (US and UK), German, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Russian.

 

The app is free to use.

 

Try it out for yourself now: http://talktyper.com/ ;

in 2011, Google Creative Lab approached Berg with a question: “If Google wasn’t trapped behind glass, what would it do?” The answer to that question consumed the entire studio for months. Ultimately, their answer was that computer vision--think technologies like Kinect--would meld with 3-D projection--think uber VJing--to become a sort of material of its very own.

Infographic: How Advertising Agencies Get Their Names - DesignTAXI.com | Creative Feeds | Scoop.it

Creative duo Rob & Joe of online community Cargo Collective have produced an intriguingly insightful chart—'Taxonomy of Advertising Agency Names'—in an attempt to “make sense of the names people give to ad agencies”.

The impressively complex chart analyzes some of the world’s most famous advertising agencies and trace their origins to a few main sources of inspiration.

According to the chart, while many agencies are named after sensible subjects like “founders” and “places”, there are also quite a number that are randomly named after “inanimate objects” and “physical or metaphysical attributes”.
