Poping up faster than mushrooms in this rainy summer we have here in France are Post-It pixel art icons on office windows all over the place!
Above are the Post-It windows I originally saw from my office window a couple of days ago. Below is my space invader response ;) – Obviously I’m not equipped with enough Post-It colors to go ballistic like these guys, but it crossed my mind to order some :p
This whole thing started as a friendly “war” between two opposite companies in the East of Paris. Now it’s everywhere! Some companies are even doing multilevel installations on bigger office buildings!
I wonder how long it will take for this to start in other countries!?

Facing your manga is the hype du jour. This is approximately what I'd look like in an L.A. manga right now... procrastinating on my next haircut! (At this rate I might as well wait I get back to France...)
For a long time I thought my life was too interesting to be condensed in 140 character bites.
Then I got keyboard lazy... (Boy do you know how much you can actually do away from you keyboard... especially in L.A.!!! :>>)
Anyways, if you're into that kind of thing, follow me on twitter!
I'm currently in Austin, Texas attending SxSW interactive. I am not attending the music festival that follows next week, BUT... today I had a very cool cab driver who told me all about it. (He's playing in a band himself!)
There are like 250,000 people attending. And the festival is only on the evenings from 8pm to laaate. Plus, it's only for indie bands.
So what happens with a quarter million people all day long?
Well... the majors would throw parties in giant warehouses and would fly in some of their major artists... Basically the unofficial festival ends up bigger than the official SxSW music. Pretty wild eh?
But it gets better: now some bands think it's even cooler to play unofficial, because it makes it "indier" than the official.
Anyways, kudos to the Austin cab drivers. On average they are the coolest I've ridden with! :P
