Next to this, here another worrying trend: computer chip producer Intel announced Will from the Black Eyed Peas to be their newly "Creative Innovation Director" in charge.
Surely, he is a good music maker and performer, surely he would be a good advertising representative for the brand... But running an innovation lab? Really? There is no connection, it's not really like Michael Jordan and Nike. What are you thinking Intel?
Amazing documentary by the crew around Mike Day about the yearly guga hunt which takes place on a remote island north of Great Britain.

Exactly three years and one day ago this blog was launched! Happy birthday Science of Creativity! This means also that my little company called Etter Studio is three years old now... unbelievable how time flies!
And what's next? Hard to say. I only know next month I will be in the heat of India, which will be amazing. Work-wise there are three projects floating around, for Sony/UEFA, Dell and Mini Cooper, let's see where they go. And in March we'll pick up work for Swiss organic chocolate producer called Halba, looking forward to that.
Other than that I think I can say now that we are working already on a new game, since people seem to like EMC. And... we're launching a new game portal in the next days... More soon.

This is the geometrical scheme of the catholic church of Saint Yves at La Sapienza in Rome. The church is considered a masterpiece of Roman Baroque church architecture, built in 1642-1660 by the architect Francesco Borromini. Beautiful.

This is a small documentary game by the talented Peter Brinson and Kurosh ValaNejad and is called The Cat and the Coup.
You play the cat of Dr. Mohammed Mossadegh, the first democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran. During the summer of 1953, the CIA engineered a coup to bring about his downfall. As a player, you coax Mossadegh back through significant events of his life by knocking objects off of shelves, scattering his papers, jumping on his lap and scratching him.
