occupygeorge.com – Money Talk

Posted in design, ideas, inspiration, Media by aldorf on October 15, 2011

The Egyptian Revolution used Technology, The Occupy Movement is using creativity and celebrating resistance – and Germany? Germany is still throwing bricks and burning cars… I guess that’s how far we got in terms of evolution. Occupygeorge is a perfect example and this video here about the current civil outrage on WallStreet.

Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America’s daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because money knowledge is power.

Music Beta by Google or Noisey by Vice?

Posted in Media, music, web by aldorf on May 10, 2011

I know not exactly comparable options but both landed in my inbox today. Noisey is having a launch Party tonight in Berlin and Music Beta is handing out invitations (U.S. only).

Noisey is a new video-based platform from Vice for showcasing the most essential new music by emerging talents from all corners of the globe. Tonight is the official launch of Noisey in Germany, and one of Berlin’s own stages for new music, Tape.

Music Beta by Google. “You can get to your personal music collection at home or on the go. Listen from the web or any enabled device with the Music app available from Android Market. Not online? No problem. The songs you’ve recently played will automatically be available offline. You can also select the specific albums, artists and playlists you want to have available when you’re not connected.”

“We work intensively with materials, technology and passionately fathom out their limitations. In the process, we develop products that are precise, simple and above all, meet human needs.”

One of his many projects I really like is paper bags made out of synthetic paper (collaboration with Label Saskia Diez):
