Ecotonoha

Check out this cool interactive visualisation designed by NEC which utilises some seriously slick flash:

Ecotonoha

“Ecotonoha is a project – to nurture a virtual tree collaboratively, and at the same time contribute to the actual environment to cope with global warming. As you make Ecotonaha’s leaves, the virtual tree will grow, and as Ecotonoha grows, real trees will be planted by NEC”

Annieisms, Is It?Apparently video blogging is the future, is this the ultimate form of narcissism or actually pretty cool? I’d go with the latter, especially if there all as good as this! I would imagine though that one of these takes a fair amount longer to put together than your average blog post so whether it will catch on is another matter.

Anyone notice how since the Matrix Keanu Reeves seems to have been seriously type-casted? Now all he seems to play is pseudo-philosophical characters with issues (Constantine etc). I guess being Neo isn’t something you can really top, my advice would be to stop while you ahead! That said, his next film, ‘A Scanner Darkly‘ (2006) actually looks pretty good.

Originally from the UK, David is designer and wanderer currently based in Tokyo. Prior to this, he lived in China and still returns frequently to continue exploring this vast and varied land. He started Randomwire in 2003 to chronicle his travels and occasional musings. Feel free to drop him a line.

  1. thanks for the link!
    well, compared to what keanu was doing before… i'd say he's moved up. so, good for him, and i agree. quit while you're ahead, neo. 🙂

  2. hehe, you're right about him moving up in the acting world, personally I think Speed was probably his best moment (aside from the Matrix of course!). As you may have noticed I'm a bit of a big Matrix fan so anything connected with it is by default pretty good in my opinion 😉
