I will go into further detail later.
Why had I never heard of Yoosk? It sounds like a really good idea. “famous people. you ask. we connect. they answer” in the words of Aleksandr Orlov, “simples”!
I will do a bit of reading and update further…
Text to follow shortly.
“Yes, it’s true that a team at Google couldn’t decide between two blues, so they’re testing 41 shades between each blue to see which one performs better. I had a recent debate over whether a border should be 3, 4 or 5 pixels wide, and was asked to prove my case. I can’t operate in an environment like that. I’ve grown tired of debating such minuscule design decisions. There are more exciting design problems in this world to tackle.”

Link for now…
Apparently I am unable to embed an iframe into wordpress.com. Into wordpress.org it would not be a problem, but I chose .com which is very annoying!
I have just sat down at had a proper nose around London, looking at where I done my placement and a couple of my friends flats…
I actually cant believe the power of google. A few years back I thought it was amazing that they had taken a picture of my house and that my car was on the driveway… But now this is one step further.
I am not too sure that they have got the functionality down to a T yet, but I am sure that will come. Clicking a arrow when zoomed in merely moving you along the street a number of metres. I think this will improve significantly as the site develops. However the power of this is unbelievable, and I am sure that you could use this for some very interesting concepts. How about online orienteering, or intergrating it into an ARG?
My aim now is to camp outside my house and make sure that google snap me!!
Also found this…made me chuckle..
Just because I love it…
Will do a post about this later!
