Two plugs

These two are not sites of sponsors but of people far more dear to me, my friends.

Mojiti is in beta and is the creation of Eric and his company in Beijing. It's a set of tools that allows people to add annotations (or Spots, as Mojiti calls them) to online video. The best way to understand Mojiti is to watch a Mojiti-enhanced video in action, like this annotated version of "Evolution of Dance" from YouTube. An easy way to create your own pseudo pop-up videos.

Fomato is a line of greeting cards. Here's a list of retail stores that carry the line. Hopefully they'll be taking orders online in the near future. The greeting cards merge artwork with Japanese genes with messages of a quirky nature. Many of my favorites aren't online, but I recommend them as an alternative to the usual greeting cards on the drugstore rack.
