Polyvore for the Fashion Set(s)

Polyvore.com example

Polyvore is a ever-growing user-generated data base of fashion items, including accessories and furniture, that you can upload, mix and match. The interface allows you to re-size items and layer them, creating your own unique ‘looks’ that you can save as sets. The items are poached from other sites, but each one is carefully labeled, and the source identified (just in case you want to recreate your wardrobe ideas IRL).

I am interested in how they plan to make money. Affiliation is an obvious route, but not so obvious in practice, since the users are finding and creating the images. A partnership would make sense, where a 3rd party would supply pre-masked images and links and populate the database with their latest fashions, and pay Polyvore for the privilege of exposing their wares to fashion mavens.


It makes perfect sense that Polyvore also has a Facebook application.

Rock Paper Scissors: The Documentary

It’s not every day that someone you consider a friend is the subject of a documentary film. I worked with Doug Walker in the internet boom of the late 90s, and watched in awe as his worldrps society exploded into an international phenomenon. I can’t wait to watch the whole story unfold from behind the scenees.

The Politically Incorrect Alphabet

The Politically Incorrect Alphabet
Inspired by Dick Bruna’s Miffy, The Politically Incorrect Alphabet was supposed to just be a cute little one-off creative joke created by one Mark Jones to taunt his wife (who just happens to be a kindergarten teacher). Of course, ‘project creep’ sunk in and the effort snowballed.

As an online alphabetic flash-card set, it’s equally offensive, cute, fun, inspiring, stupid, useless, awesome, and completely politically incorrect (hence the name, duh). Most of the illustrations were inspired by suggestions culled from the site’s various forums (one for each letter).

It doesn’t look like it’s been updated in about a year, but I guess that’s what happens to weird stuff like this on the web – sooner or later, anyone can discover and ‘explode’ it.

Be sure to check out the additional downloads and look for animated easter eggs.
