Chrome add-on lets users annotate the web | Innovation | Scoop.it
Factlink enables anyone to add a comment or reference to any piece of text on the web.
Jan Molendijk's insight:

At UBU we're looking at way to improve annotations of images (manuscripts, early printed books). This is a product designed to annotate 'text' on the internet.

Digital by Default Service Standard — Government Service Design Manual

Digital by Default Service Standard — Government Service Design Manual | Innovation | Scoop.it
Jan Molendijk's insight:

Great idea to spell out the 'success criteria' to which every service an organisation develops will be held.

There should be a separate room of course for light and agile experiments that do not fulfill the complete list of demands.

Animated Street Art – Awesome animated Street Art concept by INSA

An amazing concept of animated street art, imagined by the artist INSA who with great patience and thanks to the magic of the animated GIF, makes creations come
Jan Molendijk's insight:

A key element of innovation is the combination of two concepts - here 'street art' and 'animation'. 

The question as to what problem they are trying to solve is less relevant - this is art, so the fact we are talking about it, and somehow moved by it, is problem-solving enough.

Jan Molendijk's insight:

Perhaps a bit generalist, but has some nice insights - especially form the people at Disney: "Embrace your ugly babies" (meaning: when you start on something new, it may not look like much at first, but you, as the parents, have a good feel for its potential.)

animated drawing style explanation of 'cloud computing as a utility''- and why that matters.

Jan Molendijk's insight:

Narrated by Stephen Fry, but he's just a well-known (and probably expensive) voice actor here. It is an ad, but it makes a valid point: if computing power is 'on tap', imagine what your organisation could do with it.
