How will @google #ARglasses clip over my existing specks?

Perhaps with an upgrade and my Google account will just plug into them...

Personalisation vs Privacy

Beware Marketeers, US Citizens Want Liberty Online:

Demographically targeted, location based, contextually relevant direct marketing surly hits the campaign budget to conversion ratio target smack bang in the middle, creating a super-satisfied brand ambassador of a consumer t'boot. Whilst that may be the aim of many a marketing initiative new research from Washington DC's Pew Internet &…

A small story that might just change the world: #theinsatiablemoon

I was lucky enough to chat with producers of The Insatiable Moon recently, before I'd seen the film...


 After watching it this is what I emailed to Rob:


"Congratulations on one of the most profoundly moving films I think I've ever seen.  I don't mind admitting I literally sobbed - not during but after taking in The Insatiable Moon.  I…

Has Anyone You Know Committed Digital Suicide?

Pilot for New Documentary Game Show - Call for Participants:

Most of us know somebody who for whatever reason has resisted the lure of the technology revolution.  We consider them purists who, with the odd exception such as Noel "I've only got six friends and I'm trying to get rid of four of them" Gallagher, appear to the rest of us live a near Mormon existence…

Game Review: Mass Effect 3 - Xbox 360

Game Description: In Mass Effect 3, an ancient alien race known only as Reapers, has launched an all-out invasion of the galaxy, leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction. You, as Commander Shepard, must lead the counter assault to take it back. Only you can determine how events will play out, which…

Multi-platform Emotional Response Television Revolution @Channel4Online @charltonbrooker

Well we've all shouted at the telly right, cheered, groaned, chastised or perhaps, on occasion, even gulped in wide eyed amazement.  But when was the last time that the telly responded based on your expression, as though it was listening directly to you, as though the broadcast was not a broadcast but a conversation unfolding based on your emotional engagement with its content.  A sort of impossible free flow of ideas…

Exhilo Bass Spring - nice creative @_BKKR @DediPower

Nice creative from Bekker for new Exhilo 'dropbox+biz dev tool' (as fas as I can gather).  Supported by four hundred bass transducers of the “bodysonic” floor at London’s Fabric club!

What's Your Customers' APP.etite?

DIY software as a service (SaaS) solutions for everything from Facebook stores to mobile and tablet apps are popping up all over the web like whack-a-moles.  But what kind of experience do you want to offer your customers?  If yours is a straight forward stack em' high sell em' cheap model you may be able to tick the 'must have an app' box and derive some short term…

Back to their roots on their very own Ambush Reality label distributed through PIAS are heavy-techno-pop-punk-metal masters of the mosh pit... Enter Shikari.  Anyone who's been to a show will appreciated the devote allegiance of the Shikari faithful.  Great to see the boys flying the flag of independence and flying in the faces just about everyone else.…

Is There An App For That?: 3D Video Camera

Nope, there is no actual 3D video camera app.  Whilst there is an app called '3D Camera' it just displaces the image slightly and applies an RGB light filter to the displaced layers creating that effect you get in 3D Movies, viewable with 3D specs.  One way to kill a bit of time with your 3D movie pals I guess but not for techno-hipster futurologists like me.…

America finished 2010 $1,293 Billon down. Imagine Obama's books this year...

The White House is still calculating its 2011 deficit.  The Big Apple's official fiscal year end is September.  Still plenty of time for creative accounting before numbers are published I guess.  In stark contrast the growth curve for mobile apps, smartphone adoption and associated revenues is steeper than Radio adoption in the 20's and 30's, Television in the 1950's and Internet growth in the 90's.  Seems the tech…

Anyone for Apple & Blackberry Crumble?

What is the dominant power in today's society?  What defines the behaviour of the younger generation?  What will become celebrated in history as the key influencer on the way we consume, act upon information and base the decisions that we make in everyday life?  As little as fifty years ago this sway was debatably in the hands of Government leaders.  The general consensus was that the diametrically…

22 year old Leddra Chapman is not your typical Essex girl...  She makes perfect Sunday afternoon whimsical melodies infused with delicate Englishness.  Harpsichord, brass sections, strings and piano support accomplished guitar picking that should leave you with a contented sigh.  I'd suggest a glass of well chilled Pinot Gris would be the ideal…

Is There An App For That?: Personal Trainer

There are hundreds of course, ranging from free to the best part of ten quid.  And guess what, they're almost all identical.  The handful I checked out offer every variation on bending, stretching, and pumping iron together with all manner of cardiovascular conundrums, each promising optimised performance, well being and all round on-top-of-the-wordlesss as long as they are used regularly in combination with a balanced…

Crowd Funded Feature Documentary @highonhope

It's fantastic to see a creative project blogged about on WoTI over a year ago gain traction and start gathering the funding needed to take it to release!  Trailer below.

I set up Who'd of Thought It in 2010, as a blog and place to share and develop ideas. 

It evolved into a small community and forum to post thoughts and canvass feedback, with me entertaining the notion of perhaps collaborating on and publishing some of the content to a wider audience. After gathering some initial traction (there are some novel concepts in the archive) other ventures took precedence.

'WoTI' now serves as a occasional pleasure, scrapbook of ideas and guest posts from those who dare. But never say never!

Enjoy. Chris Thompson
