Something For The Weekend

Some interesting bits and bobs i came across this week.

Latest Tumblr Follow: I'm not Lost

Makes you want to jump on a Honda Rebel and take off. Was half way through before i thought this could be an ad and by the end i realised it was an extended ad or branded piece of content for Edwin. Still worth watching.

This Aria Desk from Herman Miller has gone on my want list.

Hello world Google Maps Streetview style.

Great example of UGC captured via SM being integrated with live event. The Killers - American Express UNSTAGED http://amex.co/S32qXb

I'm a big fan of Sugru so loved this DIY Sugru Fixbot Robotic Arm video. http://tcrn.ch/TNuxhx

An unbearably cute Ad for Google Chrome featuring Hangout and GTalk etc http://bit.ly/TXZ2Bb

Poster campaign by MOL and TFL to highlight the leave behind benefits of the Olympic games.

My Svpply collection this week is called Paws and is basically stuff with bears on....

2010 in Review

Thought it might be interesting to do a quick review of my 2010 activiety online to see what caught peoples attention and generated most clicks, views, re-tweets etc

Using tools like Hootsuite, bit.ly, short.ie etc its easy now to track what kind of traffic or clicks any tweeted links generate. I tend to use a different link shortener depending on the PC i'm using at the time but in total, across all of these, links i've posted on twitter alone have generated over 7,000 clicks in 2010. Some of the most clicked links are as follows:

  1. Could have fun with this today! http://ow.ly/33CJM The Neil Prendeville soundboard!! #Aerwankus #MileHighTugGate

Very often, and as evident from the list above, i'm tweeting linking to pictures i've taken or images i've put together and uploaded to Twitpic. Some linked to directly with Twitpic links and some via a link shortner but the most viewed pics ive uploaded to Twitpic in 2010 are as follows:

With an astonishing 46,240 views we have this pic i took of a field directly behind the house where i grew up.

Anyone recognize the pitch from the opening scene of The Wind That Shakes The Barley? Well this pic hit 15,000 views dead!

I have some more 20k plus view pics but one of my favs has to be one from my FaceDown phase. It has a respectable 410 views.

Another pic thats racked up over 700 views is this one i took on May the 1st, May Day in Cathar in Kerry at the foot of the Paps of Anu.
