Pummelvision

Posted in Social Media, Social Networking, Websites by Megan Do on December 23, 2010

What would your life look like if it flashed before your eyes?

Inspired by a mushroom trip and created by Vimeo co-founder, Jakob Lodwick, Pummelvision pulls photos from multiple social networking platforms such as Facebook, Flickr and Tumblr and exports them to a either a YouTube or Vimeo video.

Pretty cool to service if you live an interesting life. Pretty crappy service if you’re a college student and all you do is party.

TechCrunch has a a more in-depth look into the service.

Must Listen: The Score from the Motion Picture 500 Days of Summer

Posted in Movies, Music, Video by Megan Do on December 6, 2010

Almost a year ago, I wrote about a movie coming out called 500 Days of Summer. Since its release, I’ve probably seen it a couple dozen times but after watching it last night while studying, I realized how amazing the original score is. Everything about it is perfect. It’s heartbreaking, inspirational and uplifting all at the same time. I haven’t been able to stop listening to it all day.

RockMelt: the Social Browser

Posted in Social Media, Video, Websites by Megan Do on November 9, 2010

I’ve tried Mozilla Firefox, used Safari for a while and now I’m currently using Google Chrome but RockMelt looks like it’s worth a shot. A new browser that keeps you always connected to the people and things you want to be connected with, this may change the way we browse the internet. Check out the website for an invite.

The Reverse Job Application

Posted in Job Search, Websites by Megan Do on November 5, 2010

Did anyone hear about this guy? I know I’m a little slow in posting about it but since I’m on the theme of job searching with Gus & Joe Agency Pizza Maker, The Pilgrimage to Crispin Porter and The Google Job Experiment, I thought it was only right that I posted this.

Andrew Horner is a University of Central Florida grad. Two years after graduating, Andrew was still jobless and losing hope. But that’s when he came up with the Reverse Job Application. So here’s how it worked: he created a website and with brief descriptions of his past, present and future. He also included interesting bullet points about himself; things you usually don’t get to tell an employer before they reject/hire you. And at the end of all of this info, an application for the employer to fill out to make him an offer.

You notice I wrote that in the past tense, right? Andrew is now happily employed and according to his website, he received “several dozen legitimate submissions from some really great companies.” After two weeks packed with interviews, he accepted an offer from “an awesome start-up.”

Really cool idea. Glad it ended well for him!

Gus & Joe Agency Pizza Maker

Posted in Advertising, Websites by Megan Do on September 9, 2010

As the advertising industry gets more and more competitive, candidates need to find a way to stand out in the applicant pool.  Recent examples include The Pilgrimage to Crispin Porter and The Google Job Experiment.

Gus and Joe created an online pizza maker that lets you pick from a variety of ingredients and if you’re an agency and offer them a job interview, they’ll bring you an actual pizza!

Awesome idea. Good luck, guys!

Lionsgate uses Chatroulette to promote ‘The Last Exorcism’

Posted in Advertising, Video by Megan Do on August 20, 2010

I have absolutely no interest to see The Last Exorcism but this ad campaign using popular video chat site, Chatroulette, is awesome and fucking scary.
