This is a rather interesting ongoing collection of photographs of London’s shop fronts. Well, perhaps not your high street average shop front, but that makes it even more interesting. Would love to see that done in many other european cities that still enjoy some really old ones. Its all Eugène Atget allover again. Great!

“There’s a plane in the Hudson. I’m on the ferry going to pick up the people. Crazy.”
Janis Krums was the first person to offer an image and a commentary of the incident, through TwitPic.
On the press:
EL PAIS: A salvo los 153 ocupantes de un avión que cayó en el rio Hudson de Nueva York
LA TIMES: All safe after US Airways jet goes down in New York’s Hudson River
The Guardian: Plane crashes in Hudson river in New York
There is more in Google if you care to search.
And guess what, Once again, Twitter proves its worth as it happened with the Mumbai terror attacks
That is the real NEW in this event: Twitter is worth. It is an incredible tool for communicating as it happens.
You just can not be a photographer, a journalist, an academic, or just a citizen, and not know about Twitter.
I unearthed some old videos I made a while ago as a mock-up of an add about poverty for an NGO. It is no good news they are still current. I hope these help a bit to reflect on our ways.
Bread: Food For Life.
This is a series of 3 ads done for a project at college, not at all associated with thehungersite.com (unfortunately!), and were never intended to be published.
The theme was ‘Bread: the food of life’. I created these mock-up TV advertisements based on the idea of the inexpensiveness of bread being a luxury for too many.

Bread: Food For Life II

Just got an email from an honest human being warning me about a funny coincidence. Apparently someone has designed exactly the same site- this one – that I designed, and also has taken the same pictures I have been taken for the last years…
I thought you may like to know that a 'designer' is claiming to have designed a number of website that he hasn't - one of your sites in his portfolio.
Nice site btw :)
Thanks a lot, Jason. I think, if anything, its funny. Perhaps he was just using my site as a ‘temporary’ item for his Flash site. Am I very gullible? Although I think Buffalo, Jason’s company, have taken the direct approach and now the impostor’s site may be… cleaned.
I take the chance to invite you to check Buffalo’s portfolio – this time, is certainly their own work!
From Spam Poison:
WWW Robots (also called wanderers, spiders, crawlers, or bots) are programs that crawl the Web continually retrieving linked pages. When a spammer’s bot visits your website, blog, forum, etc, all pages and sites linked to it will be searched looking for email addresses.
Now you can fight back against their robots!
The links added to your site will redirect email harvesting bots to trap sites that will feed it with an almost infinite loop of dynamically generated fake email addresses, mostly on known spammer owned domains! This will render their harvested lists pratically useless and of no commercial value.
