nice graphics, sad subject

Just found following graphics on flickr done by Luke Bott. Then, I found also this flickr group and this t-shirt design competition on creative allies with graphics related to BP and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico (submission close 31 August). The winner of the t-shirt competition gets $ 100 and his shirts go on sale. All profits will go to the Gulf Restoration Network (GRN).

 

Why the world needs WikiLeaks

There is a very interesting interview on TED with WikiLeaks’ founder and creator Julian Assange. He speaks about the recently on WikiLeaks published diaries of the American operations in Afghanistan, what drives him and the importance and thus influence of such information. See also my entry about press freedom last year on this topic.

Wanna display your YouTube video in the Guggenheim Museum in New York?

HTC reports Q2 revenues up 58.5 percent

HTC‘s second-quarter revenues reached TWD 60.53 billion, up 58.5 percent from the year-earlier period. June revenues amounted to TWD 23.86 billion, up 66.7 percent year-on-year. Second-quarter net profit at the smartphone maker rose to TWD 8.64 billion from TWD 6.51 billion a year earlier. HTC said results in Q2 and June were better than expected and at record highs, showing good execution of its brand and scale strategies.

This is the direct consequence of the recent releases of their cutting-edge smartphones like Evo, Desire and HD2 which run the powerful OS Android. Google confirmed recently it is now activating 160,000 Android phones a day, up from only 100,000 a day in mid-May—indicating a monthly growth rate of 60 percent.
