Crush + Lovely

video

Hia, INK! This simple project was put on by a creative group based out of San Francisco –Crush + Lovely– who's motto goes something like this: We celebrate human narratives through digital formats. We create meaningful experiences on the web. We light up ideas that light us up.

Abstract as this may be, I think they're onto something. To offer everyday people a chance to dream and wonder and share their own creativity is a beautiful thing.

Twitter



It’s true. I’m now connected to Twitter. It’s just really unbelievable how life has changed because of social networking. Yes. I admit. It’s awesome. I can’t wait to let everyone know what I’m doing... especially when what I’m doing is completely wickedly cool. Sometimes I even wish that while I was doing something really cool, I could tell everyone about it so that everyone knows I’m up to something fun and my life isn’t boring.


Please be careful. There are some interesting ironies happening inside of this trend. We are more connected to the rest of the world than ever before in the history of civilization. But in the same moment –it’s my assumption– that we are more disconnected with our neighbors. Because communicating is convenient. Notice, convenient. But the most convenient doesn’t mean the most beneficial.

Something to think about.
