Magic Happens When You Give Smart The 2008 holiday season was certainly a busy one for us and TELUS. Ads, ads, some more ads, a few signage pieces, and a little microsite kept us well occupied in the weeks prior to Christmas.
This past weekend I attended IxDA's Interaction 09 conference in beautiful Vancouver, BC. The event, in it's second year, brought together creative thinkers, educators and corporate decision makers from across the world to share ideas, inspiration and future visions on Interaction Design.
Today's launch of Image Spark means a great deal to us. It's a product of our Labs initiatives, which lets employees take a break and focus on non-client projects -- be it for the sake of creativity or to simply learn something new.
A friend of ours, Daniel Burka, who also happens to be the Creative Director at "Digg"posted this video to his "twitter feed" today. I was blown away by it.
I've noticed a few new services that have replaced the traditional registration form (email/password) with email as an alternative sign-up method.

Limited access to television, icy temperatures, and no amount of distance, held anyone back from watching Tuesday's inauguration of the 44th president, Barack Obama. Several sites proudly played host to the most web-friendly presidential inauguration to date, spiking internet traffic levels to 54% above normal.
Following the inauguration, whitehouse.gov has been updated to reflect the Obama administration's promise to use interactive media to make government more open and accessible. I'm assuming the Presidential Pets section will get a good amount of traffic too.
We've had quite a few people ask us when Image Spark is going to launch. While we can't nail down a specific date yet we are entering into the final stages of testing.
This year marked our fifth trip to CES. We don't go to display anything, nor set up any business meetings.
We just received our Android phone from the fine people at Google. We're running it SIM free for now since it's not commercially available and hope to do some dev work on it in 2009.
