Nachdem Ideen jeder hat, sind sie auch nichts wert, das sagt der Volksmund und Kreative kennen das Lied. Schade, damit tut man der Idee sehr unrecht.

“Was ist schon eine Idee?”

A-ROSA "Bruno"

… fragte neulich einer – nachdem eine Idee gesucht und gefunden war und gerade beginnt, erste Früchte zu tragen. Richtig, es ging um die Vergütung, aber das ist eine andere Geschichte.

Diese Geschichte hier handelt von der Idee und die hat doch jeder, jederzeit. Im Minutentakt traktiert uns das Gehirn damit. Mit komischen, praktischen, abstrusen, netten kleinen Weltverbesserungsideen bis hin zu der, jetzt aufzustehen und sich einen neuen Kaffee zu holen. „Die Idee ist das, was noch nicht genügt“ sagt deshalb Hegel und meinte damit auch, dass man schließlich ja auch aufstehen müsse um sich dann den Kaffee einverleiben zu können. read complete article…


Was tun, wenn man sich trotz redlicher Bemühungen immer wieder in der gleichen Konkurrenz-Preiskampf Spirale befindet? Das Konzept des Value Innovation Thinking bietet einen neuen Denkansatz, neue Methoden und Verheißung: Neue, aus Kundensicht relevante Nutzen für das bestehende Angebot und Differenzierung vom Wettbewerb.

Value Innovation Thinking oder “Was würden Ihre Kunden vermissen, wenn es Sie nicht mehr gäbe?”

General Alarm

Was haben Unternehmen wie The Body Shop, Cirque du Soleil, AIDA, Apple, Southwest Airlines, Nespresso, Nintendo oder der Club Méditerranée gemeinsam? Sie alle haben sich ihre eigenen Märkte und neue Kunden dadurch geschaffen, indem sie ihr bestehendes Angebot neu gestaltet haben. Sie haben auf unattraktive und vergleichbare Produkteigenschaften verzichtet und gleichzeitig neue Nutzen geschaffen, die es bisher in dieser Form nicht gab. Sie haben sich damit dem direkten Vergleich mit ihren Wettbewerbern entzogen und erzielten mit dieser Strategie außergewöhnliche Erfolge. read complete article…

Google launches Julia Map on Google Labs, a fractal renderer in HTML 5

Google Labs launches Julia

Google launched Julia Map on Google Labs, a fractal renderer in HTML 5. Julia sets are fractals that were studied by the French mathematician Gaston Julia in the early 1920s. Fifty years later, Benoît Mandelbrot studied the set z2 − c and popularized it by generating the first computer visualisation. Generating these images requires heavy computation resources. Modern browsers have optimized JavaScript execution up to the point where it is now possible to render in a browser fractals like Julia sets almost instantly.

Julia Map uses the Google Maps API to zoom and pan into the fractals. The images are computed withHTML 5 canvas. Each image generally requires millions of floating point operations. Web workers spread the heavy calculations on all cores of the machine.

We hope you will enjoy exploring the different Julia sets, and share the URLs of the most artistic images you discovered. See what others have posted on Twitter under hashtag #juliamap. (Posted under Julia meets HTML 5 by Daniel Wolf, Software Engineer). Click on the images below to dive in to infinity!

Nobu Restaurant in the Spectacular Atlantis Resort on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah

Superb Interior Design

Peter Aldag - Jan.17.2011 · 2 Kommentare

Nobu Dubai was an evolution of many of the concepts Rockwell Group developed for the flagship Nobu Fifty Seven in New York, such as the emphasis on craftsmanship, natural materials and storytelling. The textures and materials in this particular location were chosen to reflect the finely crafted cuisine and Nobu’s roots in the Japanese countryside, while also celebrating the Dubai beachfront context. To anchor the restaurant in its location, Rockwell Group surrounded the restaurant walls and ceilings with large hand-woven curvilinear abaca panels to evoke an environment submerged under an ocean wave, and added accents of traditional Middle Eastern vernacular architecture such as hand-wrought iron columns of flowers, leaves and buds.

#2 album of the year: Caribou “Swim”

Marc Dienewald - Dec.30.2010 · 0 Kommentare

Don’t let the name fool you. This is not Ethno World Music or Happy Caribbean Steeldrum Sound. This is psychedelic electronic singer-songwriter kraut pop…with an experimental twist and a little dub, too :) . Swim is a really outstanding album by Canadian mastermind Daniel Snaith who is based in London now. Amazing music that doesn’t chum up with anybody. Check out Jamelia and Odessa and the goddamn rest of the album! Easy and well done. This is what 2010 sounds like! This is what we all wanted the Hot Chip album to be like ;) Our album of the year 2010 if there wasn’t the other one that will be shown tomorrow! Frogfisher says: Hey man, this was a good year! Listen to and buy Caribou on iTunes. read complete article…
