Dave's Web Of Lies 2/27/07 Description:
trawling the world's information nets seeking out falsehoods
"How much of what you read can you trust?" One of the Stars of the Month at Ample Sanity, today's pick is "seeking out falsehoods" and shares a new lie daily. There's over 4,000 lies in the searchable/browsable database, but I like random approach myself. "If you were to lay all the chickens in the world end to end they would stretch to the sun and back...........twice." Wait a minute! I thought that was true. "George Bush is actually an undercover Greenpeace member trying to infiltrate the goverment." No comment. Have fun...;~))

experimental Flash and photography (Flash)
I'm not sure how Cédric produces his Airgraphs, interesting, almost neon-like drawings over photographs in several groupings. There's over a dozen series of photos in total, including cool pics from Egypt and Rome. One thing I like about the interface is that the images scale with the browser window – the slideshows are nice in fullscreen mode. There's also a small assortment of unique interactive Flash experiments. "Let us distinguish the form from the contents," says Cédric. "Good visit..."

information on the people who make the products we use every day in the form of easy-to-use package labels and stickers
Today's pick is out to raise awareness by making improved packaging available to print, cut out, and place on products in the marketplace. Fact is, there's real people behind the products we use, like children who process sugar or harvest vegetables for example, making next to nothing for their hard work. From The Anti-Advertising Agency, alternative marketing labels for the products we buy, featuring "images and stories about the workers who make them." Enlightening.
Sleepy Urbanite 2/21/07 Description:
cell phone art
"This project was born from the desire to create art on the fly... the beautiful uniqueness of the everyday." When she's not singing with The Locals (and rather well, thank you) or working that day job, she's out and about armed with just a cell phone camera. Done at home in Chicago on the CTA train, her Sleepy Urbanite project captured some media attention recently. "People are dreaming all around you on the train..." And when that attention took her to New York City for a day, she naturally rode their trains too, capturing sleeping New Yorkers. There's other series too, "paying freakishly close attention to the everydayness." Cool cell phone art on the fly.

A collection of photos by Chris Mrozewski
"I want to know what you think," says Chris, an architectural student in Missouri. Well. There's a photo or two that blew me away. The site's got character. Goodies too. And if you don't mind a few hundred thumbs on one page, here's a good place to start. That's what I think...
