A friend sent me an article from the Gibson site and I was blown away. It's a great product site which organizes a lot of information really well and actually compiles all their microsites in one place (sounds like a no-brainer, but it doesn't happen nearly often enough).
A friend of mine noticed something on the Canada Post site. Go looking for a lost package, you'll end up on this page: When I clicked the "Lost item" link, I ended up here: Oh, the irony!

I got knee deep in the work today, and am needless to say, exhausted. I saw a few really great pieces in the games and integrated campaign categories - maybe even some gold.
Today was my first day of judging at Cannes. Contrary to popular belief there are no parties yet, though I'm told that will change.
