Web 2.0 - Strictly no photography

Here's an original idea and I can see the site picking up fairly quickly. The mere fact that its concept revolves around doing something that is not allowed will attract a big crowd - Curiosity and defying rules are part of human nature, right?

"Strictly no photography is a photo-sharing site for photographs taken where you are not allowed to take them. From the inside of the Kremlin to Kensington palace, from art galleries to war zones. Here you can see everything you've ever wanted to see that you're not supposed to. There are pictures that range from the ordinary to the profound." - You can search pictures by categories or by photographers.

It is simply a brilliant idea, and I personally like it a lot :)
Have a look here.

Web - Orange's "Good Things Should Never End"

Poke London (great agency, check the very original Poke NY site) just launched a microsite to support Orange's new campaign for their "speak easy" (pay as you go) service.

They managed to come up with a concept that works perfectly with the campaign's tagline: "Good things should never end"; Once the site is done loading, you're up for an unlimited vertical experience - packed with cute animations and random games :)

Discover the site here.


Random - Magic number #8

I'm very impressed at the increasing number of readers - It might be considered as low for some, but more than enough for my ego :)

I like going through the stats of the site; Quite a bit of "exotic" countries are represented on the map of the users who visited the blog.

So again, thank you all for reading, and a big hello to the reader #800 (from India) who spent 40s on the site, and decided to check out the Digg Lab screensavers ;)

Random - Hallo-logos

A bit too late, I know - no need to remind me.
And I'm guilty of disappearing as well, but I previously mentioned that for some reason my RL managed to take over the virtual one.

Youtube and Twitter celebrated Halloween as well!
I like the efforts that were put into this subtle transformation :)

Did you get across any other sites that dressed up their logo for the occasion?
Let me know if you have screenshots!
