Blackberry, WordPress & A Llama

This post is mainly something I’m posting so I can test out the WordPress for Blackberry application.

I installed it upon it’s release but still haven’t published anything with it – so I’m doing that now.

As if my Blackberry addiction wasn’t already bad enough, I think the ability to blog from it now is about to make me OD.

By the way, I know this is my first post in over a week, but I was fighting some crazy migraines for over a week now – so, yeah. (They’re gone now thankfully.)

Apparently, this app can also attach photos. Let’s end with that:

BooneOakley's Innovative "Website"

With new websites popping up everyday, it’s rare to be truly impressed with a website concept these days (for me anyways).

This next one managed to really impress me though.

Rather than launching a typical website, ad agency BooneOakley decided to launch a “website” in the form of annotated YouTube videos.

Below is their “home page” with annotated links to the other videos that comprise their entire site.

Click the buttons in the video to go to their other “pages”.

Artists should take a hint from this. Even if you don’t do a series of YouTube videos to comprise your website; think past the given functionality of tools and find innovative new methods of using them to benefit your own needs.

You can break new ground while saving your valuable (sometimes non-existent) budget.

I’m getting some ideas now. Gotta go jot them down while they’re still fresh.

The Man Behind 50 Cent's Social Media Empire

Love him or hate him, ever since 50 Cent first launched his media channel, ThisIs50.com,  nearly every other artist ran to launch their own Ning site in hopes of copying his success.

While others are frantically trying to emulate ThisIs50.com, the man behind the site and its success, Chris “Broadway” Romero, is continuing to move on and break new grounds.

Broadway was recently interviewed by TechZulu, where he offered some insight into the success and motivation of ThisIs50.com.

Mistah Fab – Hit Me On Twitter

Now that Kelso has become the first Twitter user to hit 1 million followers and Oprah has dedicated an entire show to Twitter, Mistah Fab drops what’s probably the best song themed around social media.

There’ve been a couple songs out there about social media, but let’s be real – most of them suck.¬†They make for fun parodies, but aren’t actual songs that you would listen to.

This one’s dope though; it’s definitely going on the iPod.

Shout out to Rob-E on the production!

Listen to the song below:
