There are more social platforms than we can count now. Some with dashboards that are easy to populate but super difficult to navigate. Most collect lots of data, but offer little instruction on what to do with all the details. Some offer tools but without adequate explanation of how to use more than 5% of the functionality.
CoTweet, takes a simpler approach. This could be the PR agency of the future: a dashboard for Twitter sentiment and co-tweeting management. The enterprise system is quite snazzy. Take it out for a free trial.

Social data gets even more interesting. Foursquare has added an interesting new layer to your location history. You can now go back in time and see who else checked-in at a particular location from your check-in history. They are also planning on releasing a new iPhone app this week.

There’s been a lot of talk about Html5 vs Flash lately, and you can read some points of view here, here and here. It’s something that should be discussed and explored in detail as ultimately, it’s about using what works best for what purpose. Most of what we do is Flash, so here are some things to check out that can be done with Html5.

Teradadesign Architecture recently unveiled a building facade made entirely of QR tags. In a community of billboard covered buildings, the facade gives N Building a dynamic and social appeal. From the designers:
By reading the QR Code with your mobile device you will be taken to a site which includes up to date shop information. In this manner we envision a cityscape unhindered by ubiquitous signage and also an improvement to the quality and accuracy of the information itself.
December 15th, 2009 we held an opening which included the limited release of an iPhone application made specifically for N Building. If a QR Code is static, what could we do with a dynamic device like the iPhone? Our proposed vision of the future is one where the facade of the building disappears, showing those inside who want to be seen. As you press on the characters their comments made on online appear in speech bubbles. You can also browse shop information, make reservations and download coupons. Rather than broadly tagging, we display information specific to the building in a manner in which the virtual (iPhone) serves to enhance the physical (N Building). Our goal is to provide an incentive to visit the space and a virtual connection to space without necessarily being present.
