I love it. The low-fi vibe clashing with tech. Nice work… For a viral campaign!

I hate clowns. I really really do. They freak me out to the extent that I spent last night having night terrors after watching the shitty Stephen King movie IT. Now I know I’m not alone in my freakish fear of the red nosed  evil performers, but I’m amazed that there isn’t more of a scary clown presence in the media world. Seriously, where is the Dr Who episode where David Tennant gets attacked by a mental zombie clown?? Or even worse, how about Midget clowns? I shudder at the thought.

So I therefore challenge the multiplatform world…

Bring on the scary clowns.

This post very much ‘does what it says on the tin’.

I recently read a couple of websites (Only Dead Fish Swim With The Water & Marketingcharts.com) where they showed and discussed the Nielsen report results for the fastest growing websites as of Sept/Oct 07.So without further ado I’ve listed all the sites and linked them to their appropriate website… I’m good like that.

I find the results interesting, especially looking at how hot the Facebook applications are in the UK results. I’m also amazed by LinkedIn and how fast they are growing. I’m LinkedIn but nobody wants to link with me. I hope it’s nothing personal.

Here is an article all about LinkedIn vs Facebook… Good stuff.
