Pick One

Last week I posted on The Most Awesomest Thing Ever but since then have stumbled across this simpler, but equally as revealing version called Pick One by Hey Ben.

Thought it would be interesting to see how the top 5 compared on each site at the time of blogging to see if there were any similarities and it appears Music comes out top trumps as it appears on both!
Well done Music!

Nike Grid: London’s Your Gameboard

With more and more emphasis on social network games (Foursquare, Gowalla, MyTown) relying on the use of a smart phone or at least one with internet connection ability I’ve often thought there are a lot of people out there who don’t get a chance to play, this ones for you… Nike Grid

Race – Chase – Sprint – Dial!
Basically you play by logging in at a phone box (free phone) then score points by getting to another phone box in the same postcode in the quickest possible time. Simple and engaging, brilliant!
Not only is it a form of social gaming but also encourages running, its a win win!

But it appears it’s only a 24hr game starting 8pm on Friday 23rd April so you have got to be quick to claim your postcode!

Must also admit I am loving the Spooks style website to give it that underground/spy feel to the whole thing. Check it out here!

Policy madness

Following the first Election Debate last week on live TV that set twitter alight, the awareness for the up and coming election has shot thru the roof (can only be a good thing). So with that in mind I thought it would be a good idea to post about this cracking website/tool that I for one found immensely helpful.

I’ve always struggled to see thru all the press bias towards certain parties and thought some parties were better represtented than others purely because they could afford to get more leaflets printed/billboard space hired. Vote for Policies I believe is one solution to that…

Matt Chocqueel-Mangan from Budcus, and Alistair Holt and Simon Plenderleith of Makitó Labs are responsible for this clean and simply designed functional site which puts policies up front and centre so it’s those you are making opinions/decisions on rather than the party with the most photogenic leader, biggest marketing budget, your favorite colour as their party colour (all of which I have actually heard people say as reasons for voting for a particular party!)

Have a go on it here, you might surprise yourself with the results!

The Most Awesomest Thing Ever

A bit of Friday fun here… New York based (well beyondM25) digital agency Big Spaceship have done this Monty Python style battle site. A more advanced version of the Harry Hill ‘FIIIIIIIIGHT‘. Love the button sounds and the fact that at the time of posting ‘Lightsaber (real)’ came out as more awesome than ‘Oxygen’. Enjoy here

Blurb from the about section:
The Most Awesomest Thing Ever is scouring the universe for the Most Awesomest Thing. Ever. By endlessly pitting two things against each other, we’ve created a stage set for destruction. You will battle, winners will emerge. Only the strongest shall reach the hallowed halls of the Most Awesomest.
