Awesome, Truly Awesome!

This morning I got to know about the Start Up revolution in Israel. A dear professor and also an experienced designer, Iko Avital, told me that Israel has fastest growing Start Ups in the world. After googling for few, I came across this awesome start up called Wibbitz. They convert text into videos and kind of believe that they could turn readers into viewers. An amazing idea indeed. I tried the same for my blog and voila!! It worked and my blog posts are now appearing as news headline in a video. It’s really an experience.

For some reasons it seems that embedding the video isn’t yet working with wordpress. So my readers have to wait to see that. But DO TRY Wibbitz.

Few links which would be fun to explore are here:

This sound piece tries to question the relevance of an information like news in a much communicated environment like ours. What happens when news passes through the minds of each of us with different contextual backgrounds. How do we perceive and relate to news? Is the actual message retained?

Trying to bring this feeling amongst the audience of this piece.
