20 Things that happened on the Internet in 2011

’20things’ is concocted by Syzygy Group, the mother ship for agencies Syzygy, Unique, Hi-Res! and Ars Thanea.

Within this illustration (by Peter Jaworowski, Executive Creative Director & Michal Lisowski, Lead Artist @ Ars Thanea) are 20 references to events that took place online in 2011. Although this isn’t a competition they do have a few signed limited edition prints to give away. Follow them on Twitter and tweet a link to the picture using the hashtag #20things. They’ll randomly pick a couple of lucky people each day. To help you along, they’ll release clues over the coming days.

Social Media: See how social media is changing the way we communicate

A video we developed for Zurich to help employees make sensible decisions about their online interactions, provide clear direction on the importance of protecting Zurich’s as well as their own reputation and finally to respect third party rights and further regulations.

BCKCHNL – From Nation

BCKCHNL (short for Back Channel) is a super simple Twitter search app from Nation. Built with ’2nd Screens’ in mind, so whether that’s monitoring a hash-tag you’re interested, or following a specific keyword. The app uses javascript to constantly refresh the feed with new results so past the initial search it’s essentially a passive experience of watching the tweets roll by. “We wanted a simple clean interface that worked across big screens, projections, tablet devices and mobile devices alike”

Perfect for keeping up with the XFactor slag match.

IS IT SNOWING WHERE YOU ARE? – #uksnow Tweets

Twitter weather watchI was on Twitter yesterday, sheltering from the almost immediate snowstorm, when I came across this great little mash-up from Ben Marsh. You simply tweet the first half of your postcode, plus the amount of snow you’re seeing ie: “#uksnow NG9 3/10”, and it uses the information to create a user generated weather chart of where it’s snowing in the UK, and how heavy. More reliable than the news Ben, thanks.
