Cool Sites & Applications

'The Hero' Campaign - Sweden

http://en.tackfilm.se/

Great example of UGC centric interactive film

We've seen many of these types of campaigns where a user can submit a photo which is integrated into a brand campaign, but this one is of the best ones.

FWA - Site of the Day

http://www.thefwa.com/

Reference for new and innovated web designs and sites

Just a good reference site to quickly see what innovative work is being done on the web.

mynbc.

http://www.my.nbc.com

NBC is launching an innovative campaign to engage viewers online through contests and activities where viewers earn points for activities

While the execution may not be 'beautiful', this is an early example of how the web can be used in a much more active way to engage audiences around television programming and leverage the public social networks to increase exposure of their broadcast lineup.

Fast Flip

http://fastflip.googlelabs.com/

Google Labs has a news aggregation site (similar to Google News) that tries to simulate the paper news experience more closely.

Great way to speed read the news and what is trending in a more engaging way - will be interesting to see how this project develops.

Brother Lion

http://www.brotherlion.com/

Brother Lion was discovered in the jungles of Jamaica, and his song which was recorded on an iphone was produced into a beautiful reggae tune.

All music sales on itunes go directly into Brother Lion's bank account. This is a great song and the feel good story of the summer.
