JESS3 posters for Google LA is jam packed with memes

Posted on 7 November 2011

As part of Google’s consolidation of it’s offices in Los Angeles into one location at in Venice Beach, they commissioned JESS3 to create a series of posters for each of the 14 engineering areas focused on at the LA campus. I love the creativity and geekiness gone into these. The creative agency’s attention to internet memes is hilarious. I especially love the statement on the bottom of the YouTube Social poster: “Because these cat videos aren’t going to share themselves.” Nice one JESS3! ♺ Google LA Office Posters by JESS3, no date. ★ Google LA Posters: How we got it done! on JESS3 Blog, no date.

So how ’bout: Objectivity in journalism

Posted on 25 August 2011

So I said  I wanted to have a gripe about Asher Moses’ article in The Sydney Morning Herald on the Apple v Samsung case, so here it is. In the very first line of the article Moses makes the following claim: Stanley Kubrick, not Apple, designed the iPad, Samsung says in a bizarre patent defence that cites 2001: A Space Odyssey as an argument for why its copycat tablet shouldn’t be pulled from sale in the US. What I don’t like about Moses’ statement is that he’s made an obvious judgement call on whether or not the Samsung devices have infringes Apple’s intellectual property. But I thought the whole reason the matter was at court at all was to let a learned Justice of the US Federal District…

Song to say good bye

Posted on 19 July 2011

It is with a mixture of excitement, anticipation and butterflies that I am finally making this announcement. For those of you who don’t already know the news, I am moving on from Creative Commons Australia to take up a position as the Digital Content Officer at the Australia Council for the Arts. If you’re reaction was, “Woah, but hasn’t Elliott been at Creative Commons for ages?” don’t worry, you’re right. I have. I started with Professor Brian Fitzgerald at QUT Law School in the middle of 2004. I’ve been working along side him and his amazingly talents gaggle of researchers and advocates for a long time. I have lived and breathed copyright, digital technologies and new business models – you all know that, you undoubtedly…
