利用微博環遊世界?

July 26, 2010

你有想過玩微博能令你免費環遊世界嗎?
英國一名男子僅靠Twitter,在30日內分文不花遊歷了半個地球。

全球用戶超過9000萬,每日發出高達6500萬訊息的Twitter,一個社群網路微網誌服務,是現時主流微博平台之一。用戶可以經由SMS即時通訊電郵、Twitter網站或Tweets,輸入最多140字的更新。每個文字更新會顯示於用戶頁,而且每個用戶都可以即時看到訊息。


於09年1月,英國Twitter用戶,34歲的保羅 史密斯(Paul Smith)想去新西蘭坎貝爾島遊玩,希望依靠世界各地「博友」幫助在30天內到達目的地。
出 發前史密斯為這次旅程定下多條規矩,他只接受Twitter用戶幫助,旅程路費、食宿由「博友」支付,不會停留一個地方超過2天,若2天後無處可去便宣佈 挑戰失敗。09年3月1日史密斯正式出發,期間途徑荷蘭、法國、德國和美國等地。途中他為一家名為「水」的慈善機構籌得5000英鎊善款。09年3月30 日到達新西蘭,可惜最終「博友」未能為史密斯提供到坎貝爾島的船隻,這個免費旅程被逼提早結束。


史 密斯這次旅程行程、住宿全由「博友」安排,熱情「博友」來自各行各業,為他提供酒店床位、船票、機票。史密斯在旅程中不斷更新微博,讓「博友」知道自己動 態,雖然未能到達坎貝爾島,史密斯卻認為能提早回家與新婚妻子團聚未必不是一件好事。史密斯表示30天旅程讓他感到團體力量的強大,旅程改變了他的一生, 今後他將會多與給自己提供幫助的「博友」交流。

這趟「免費旅遊」顯現出現今人與人之間的聯繫、關愛、幫助和溝通絕非只限於網上世界。透過互聯網,天馬行空的虛擬想法也能令你夢想成真。也許我也是時候計劃一下我的「微博之旅」。

What’s the scoop?

July 24, 2010

A Top Model contest intended to showcase talented Chinese female models around the country. Sponsored by Mina Magazine, Scawaii Magazine and Clean and Clear, contestants in teams of 2, across China can either 1) submit a video of 1 minute in duration along with photos or 2) have their video recorded at the official recruiting sessions—members on Tudou will then be able to vote on their favourite wannabe.


Videos taped at recruiting session


Videos submitted by the hopefuls

Why this works?
Many video-based campaigns in Hong Kong and China cannot seem to reach its full potential and generate enough buzz mainly because Companies cannot get very many people to submit videos to contests. Although people in Hong Kong and China love taking photos and sharing them via social media, videos is a bit of a different story.

Video: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/iOkXaZ7-cGg/

Online and Offline
To maximize coverage and reach for this campaign, Clean and Clear has full support—online and offline. Videos and photos of the contestants are viewed exclusively online, while the winner of the contest will also be featured on Mina, Scawaii (print spread deal) and Clean and Clear (television commercial contract).

Optomizing SocialGraph
On the contest website, Clean&Clear also provides a list of guidelines for contestants to help them get the most votes. The main social networking platforms seem to be divided into 3 categories: 1) QQ 2) other messenger application 3) blogs and microblogs (sina, weibo) 4) Forum and bulletin boards. There may be 7 billion Chinese people in the world and digital media has the ability and potential to reach about 150million of them (living in China).


3 Apps 1 Date

July 24, 2010

By: Josie Tao (Hong Kong)

Can we agree that first dates are dreadful? After weeding out dozens of lunatics, social climbers, gold diggers and the downright jerks, you find the one man/woman that you really think you would get along with.

Feating Iphone as Batman on your First Date
You finally have that one chance to have some 1-on-1 time with this person and you plan the most romantic,fun and interesting date hoping to impress him/her. Picking out a restaurant alone is a science—Is the lighting flattering? Are the staff Hooteresque and your date’s eyes are wandering?

After all the planning you arrive to the restaurant in a confident stride. As you see your date arrive from a distance, you suddenly find yourself sweating profusely, tongue tied in a knot and brain numbed. Technology is suppose to connect us and make our lives easier, so does it have the capacity to prevent a first date disaster?

Tech Geek by Day, Sommelier by NightYou are confident that you look smart in your new Ted Baker shirt. Your date looks so hot (not Heidi Montag hot,Eva Mendes hot) you are trying your best to resist snapping a photo of her and sending it to all our friends with a note saying “suck it!”. You are usually the Stella and Loafers kinda guy and she’s probably the jeans and t-shirt kinda gal, but tonight she got all decked out for the date and you know its time to step up and impress her.

With a little help from WineToMatch, any average geek can order wine like a pro to impress the girl. By putting in some information about the type of food you are ordering, the iphone application selects wines to pair with your meal.

The inevitable awkward silence
No matter how much you have in common with this girl, awkward silence always manages to creep in. It has nothing to do with your conversational skills or how interesting she is—you are still getting to know each other and it takes a while to be comfortable with those quiet gaps. However when the quiet gaps start to feel like a dark and steep trenches of silence, a glimpse of Hong Kong 爛 gag is a fun way to loosen up.

If you don’t know already 爛 gag are local Hong Kong brainteasers usually with a play on words. Why not take turns asking each other 爛 gag and see how gets more answers right? It might be a little geeky but keeping a first date light and fun is important.

Preparing for the worst
Sometimes Mr Dreamy who you thought was funny, sharp and smart might actually be a Spencer Pratt–unfortunately, you have discovered this in the middle of your Mango Martini as he makes fun of your iphone cover and checks out the waitress. You can try to sit through it and hope to God that the baked lasagna you ordered will arrive A-sap or you can enlist the help of Fake Call.

This app allows you to stimulate a phone call with a number and name you customized in advance. You can even set the app to keep calling after you decline the first call (while you politely insert line— “normally I won’t take this but they my aunt Lily has called 4 times! It must be urgent….”).

So will technology make our dating life a little easier? Maybe. Or are all these applications over-complicating and manipulating something that is suppose to be simple? Perhaps. You probably would not to use them every time you go on the first date, but the old saying rings true—“better safe than sorry”.
