Why EXACTLY is #FreeBieber trending?

Teen pop sensation Justice Beaver has approximately a gajillion fan girls, all with at least 2 and a half twitter accounts each. So it’s no surprise that when he does anything at all – he shoots to the top of the trending topics that day. Whether it be accidentally killing a Brazilian prostitute or fighting with a fast food mascot.

2014 – A Blog Reboot?

After a year or so of this blog collecting cyber-dust, I have decided that a ‘reboot’ may be in order.

Since graduating from University my minimal designs and artwork have come to a halt. For me, this is a shame. I love creating work like my movie posters – it’s good practice for me and it’s cool to be able share them online. Unfortunately I am powerless to stop the inevitability of growing up and the demands of non-student life, which means less time to play on Photoshop.

HOWEVER – I think it would be cool to keep my blog running this year, as a platform for a my thoughts and ideas around the future of tech, design, and advertising. Heck I’ll throw in the occasional bit of original design when it happens.

This might already exist and if it does then please let me know. BUT I was struck about tweaks to Twitter that would perhaps work well – that people may actually appreciate.

It would be cool to curate the content of our tweets a little more closely. The easiest way to explain it would be a love-child between G+ circles and Pinterest boards. We all tweet about a wide variety of things – day to day bits & more niche interests. Sometimes we follow a friend who’s daily tweets about their day are of interest to us – but who might also tweet about golfing results – wasted tweets that we skim over as they are of no interest to us.

Similarly we may follow someone who tweets about a particular interest of ours – a sports journalist for example, who gives us up to date information on our team, but who’s tweets about their personal life we don’t care for. It’s a familiar problem – especially as very few people tweet about a single subject, Twitter is about having a personality.

The easter bunny visited work today. I need more mini figures for the top of my screen. My desk is a bit more awesome now. Picked this up at lunchtime. Visual geekiness.
