[stuff what got stuck in my browser tabs this last week or so]

:flash: le boom du robot domestic – the video is in french, but it should still be worth watching for all domestic robot lovers. because it shows Qrio and his inventor. apparently Qrio sits on a seat next to him during plane rides. oh no, i want one. oh lord.

:flash: banksy show in london – wooster has some pictures from the banksy show that opened last weekend. i think. i mean they do have the pictures just unsure when the show… oh nevermind

:flash: simon wheatley, photographs – i quite like these photographs of the hiphop culture that i found on PYMCA, a website dedicated to youth culture photography.

:flash: How to Tell When a Relationship is Over – hilarious 90 seconds short by tony roche. almost as good as this guiness advert. [both via 4rthur, i think]

:flash: john battelle: the search – could be one of those books that i might order at some point and then never read. i did watch the videos here (pop up), tho.

:flash: Copyright woes plague Thai starlet – somehow i landed here, don’t ask, and it’s quite an interesting story imho. a chinese firm is using photos of a thai model for viagra adverts without clearing them with herf. it seems that china is pretty loose on copyright.

:flash: damn cool illusion – yes doctor, i see pink spots, then green spots, then the pink spots dissappear… oh i guess you had to be there. [via al4ie]

:flash: Weblog Usability: The Top Ten Design Mistakes – i am so not sure if i agree with some of the points jakob nielsen makes, (9. Forgetting That You Write for Your Future Boss ????), but the approach is interesting [via endgadgeted]

:flash: google-kai – oh come on, swedes. this guy named his kid google. [via everybody and her cats blog]

:flash: flock – the browser for bloggers. [via everybody and his dogs blog]

:flash: bush falling falling falling fallen – [via everybody and his gerbil’s blog]

:flash:I/O Brush – “I/O Brush is a new drawing tool to explore colors, textures, and movements found in everyday materials by “picking up” and drawing with them. I/O Brush looks like a regular physical paintbrush but has a small video camera with lights and touch sensors embedded inside.” sound confusing? watch the video. [via k10k]

:flash: waking the dead – mistery whodunnit game @ the BBC. unsolvable? i need help. please. [via 4rthur]

:flash: peace bonds design for peace contest – something for your students, franziska? [via adbusters]

german/swiss stuff

:flash: nick lüthi: Die Borderline-Akademie – “Journalismus: Tom Kummer gründet eine «School of Borderline Journalism». Studenten kämen mehrheitlich aus der Werbung, weiss der «Bad Guy of German Journalism». ” [cheerz nick!]
