TGIF! To celebrate, here’s some great apps, an amazing tirade in the name of advertising and a charity worth looking into. Happy browsing . . .
WHAT MAKES YOU TOO GOOD FOR ADVERTISING?
Earlier this week, perhaps inspired by the post Mad Men season premier fervor, one of Gawker’s regular bloggers posted a rant urging creative types to stay far, FAR away from advertising. Later in the day Drew Magary posted a counterpoint to the argument that’s just priceless. Fair warning – not for those offended by “bad words.”
Tweegram allows you to write all your thoughts into your social timeline with a lot of templates and your favorite photos. It’s a super simple idea but it’s a cool way to share a few words with your friends.
Gigwalk is “the first ever mobile distributed work force.” In short, it’s a local freelance-search machine that tells you where current gigs are and you get paid cash to do them!
PicFrame helps you combine multiple photos into beautiful frames, then share them with your friends and family via Facebook, Email, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr and Tumblr. With 60 fully adjustable frames, rounded corners, photo effects, plenty of patterns and an easy color selector, you will always have a unique look.
RESTAURANTS AGAINST HUNGER
Restaurants Against Hunger is a charity worth checking out. Action Against Hunger’s annual Restaurants Against Hunger campaign partners with leaders from the food and beverage industry to call attention to global hunger. Each year, the campaign raises vital funds and support for ACF’s life-saving humanitarian programs. Take action by donating, fundraising and getting involved.
