Twitter powered captioning for Live streaming video
The concept of combining video and twitter feeds for recorded events was first proposed Tom Smith in February 2009 after experiencing Graham Linehan’s BadMovieClub in which at 9pm exactly on the 13th February 2009, over 2,000 Twitter users simultaneously pressed ‘Play’ on the film ‘The Happening’ and continued to ‘tweet’ whilst watching, creating a collective viewing experience. – Twitter Subtitling, Wikipedia

Quote of the week
By Shane Morris. He has such a funny dry sense of humour sometimes:
Q: You’ve been involved in the industry for quite some time, and seen it mature. Where do you see it going from here?
A: “I think of it this way: once we were in the business of telling people their baby is ugly. Then we progressed to advising people how to make their babies more attractive. Nowadays I help companies work out what sort of baby they want, or whether they’d actually prefer an Xbox.” – UX Design: What it is, What it Takes, and Where it’s Going
And this just made me laugh…
