People's Roadmap to a Digital New York City

Amazing. Be it for study purposes, do visit the site.

Recently Ello causes a stir. With more amazing beauty of strictly functional.

“That’s the thing of the Scandinavian thing.” says Per Arnoldi in a video interview with Richard Quest. “We are practical people. It is not a fantasy thing. There is not a lot of mystery here. Not a lot of mystery…”

Per Arnoldi: In a hotel, art is a decorative element. You are not trying to tell anyone anything about existentialism. That we are all gonna die, that life is short and cruel. (laughs out loud) I mean that is not where we are. That is not where we are. It’s hospitality.

Richard Quest: Striking design that is also strictly functional.

Per Arnoldi: It’s organised, we are organised here.

Richard Quest: Scandinavian design is very much followed and en vogue at the moment. Why is that you think?

Per Arnoldi: The serious answer is that in a crisis, when a crisis is on, which it is, you propably want to buy something that is not too elaborate. Where you feel that the design has been minimised, kept at a minimum, so we don’t splurge.

Richard Quest: Now this is one of the corridors of the hotel.

Per Arnoldi: (gigglies) Yes. Definitely.

Richard Quest: But your art is here. You Did these pieces.

Per Arnoldi: Yes, I did these pieces.

Richard Quest: What where you thinking?

Per Arnoldi: This is a decorative piece. No one is crying or screaming or begging or preying – or anything difficult.
This is a hotel corridor, for christ sake. Find your room and pray that your key works. (giggles)

That’s hotel philosophy, don’t you think?

The farmers had the right idea… they put the comics in the outhouses, to wipe their asses. And that’s all comics were really worth. But in this country, because there’s so many wealthy people, they make junk worth money.

Finnland’s nazis have hijacked their national symbols like elsewhere in the world too. They decided to recreate a national identity and introduce it at Eurobest in Dezember.

Watch where the beautification of Finnland is going.

100% a Swede, Henrik Nygren, has been assigned with the redesign. His web presence is horribly pretentious though and boring.

Venture Capital means exits, says Aral Balkan

About Ello

 

 

While still in beta, Aral Balkan says goodbye to Ello in a recent blog post. Ello the simple, beautiful & ad-free social network that promises you, that you are not the product – as it turns out- has made itself the product and sold out.

Something is missing for the about page, Balkan found out. It’s not just Paul’s face, there’s also no mention of FreshTracks Capital and the $435,000 in venture capital that Ello took from them.
