Media & Entertainment (173)
From centerfold to center stage
Pop-Up Magazine describes itself as “the world's first live magazine, created for a stage, a screen, and a live audience. Each issue exists only for one night.” The content is like the best issue of The New Yorker - an eclectic collection of pieces showcasing interesting writers, documentary filmmakers, photographers, and radio producers, together, on stage, sharing short moments of unseen, unheard work.
Why it matters
How could your brand take familiar concepts, put them in a different context and turn the familiar into something more unconventional and interesting?
Iceland Express has become the latest carrier to offer passengers iPads, joining a small but rapidly growing club turning to Apple for their inflight entertainment. The budget airline, which flies from Reykjavik to destinations including London, New York, Berlin and Copenhagen, will introduce the devices first on transatlantic flights, before rolling it out to the rest of the fleet over the next few months. Passengers will have to pay $13 to use the devices, which can be used to watch movies and television shows, listen to music, read magazines and play games.
We live an increasing amount of our lives online, but what happens after we are gone? What will happen to all our photos, blogs and social network accounts? Until now our digital identities have lived on without us, leaving our loved ones powerless to control or close them. Webwill is a new service that puts you in control even in the afterlife, allowing users to prepare messages on Twitter, Facebook and Myspace which will be automatically updated if they come to an untimely end.
