Doc Martens Turns 50. Hmm...

Foursquare For Good. Hmm...

My dad sent me this awesome article from the NYTIMES about how commuters in San Francisco are using their smartphones to "check in" at billboards using Foursquare and in-so-doing, help some endangered wildlife keep from becoming extinct. What a flippen cool way to use social media for good, no? That said, Foursquare is growing in SA. I use it every day. If, however, you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out their site and start using it today. It's a super rad way to get to know your city and let people know where you are. Who knows, one day you may use it for the benefit of mankind like they are in SF.

A New Way Of Looking At Search. Hmm...

Bing is a search engine. It's been popping up in sitcoms and movies, thanks to a ton of product placement cash most likely, as an alternative to Google. And before today, I've never really even considered it but they're getting clever. Take their new 'decode Jay-Z' site: over 300 pages of Jay-Z's life and lyrics are placed in the streets of NYC. You pick a clue, decide the path and claim the page in this online game and all the while search for info on the music mogul/rapper/entrepreneur/whatever he is today. Beats searching just text if you ask me. Well, at least in this case.

Hmm... of the day
