In the online content realm, PlanetGreen has premiered a new short form series they call My Place, produced by independent filmmaker Ann Marie Fleming. The 10 x 90 second series highlights the “angst-ridden” days of a young woman who is trying to do the right thing for the environment
This young lady’s desire and need to make the world a better place is something we here at Ninthlink identify with, as we strive to do the same with our efforts not only to go green, but to support those who have found the green way.
It’s not about jumping on a trend, it’s about an awareness of the world around us. It’s easy, working in the dgital world, to lose connection with the physical world: the ocean, the air, the forests, the deserts, tress, fish, wild life, even the grass below one’s feet — golfer’s know this!
The story of Ninthlink continues as we recently were presented with the challenge of understanding the lifestyle and challenge of Golf not just from a branding perspective for major branders – but to the golfer that finds inpiration and passion in smacking a small ball with an iron club around for hours on end in the grass. So, as many who know me personally, I took the challenge head on and I am hooked.
Surfing has been and integral part of my childhood and the experience and challenge of riding waves has shaped the person that I am today in so many ways; family time with mom taking me and friends to the beach for an afternoon surf; charging big waves with a couple buddies wondering what we were thinking at the time; discovering the world from south america to europe; time to just reflect and enjoy being the ocean; – there are so many experiences. And now, with golf I have discovered a close competitor to the experience of challenging onc-self and enjoying a good walk with friends (and strangers – as I keep getting partnered with all types of people).

The Military is certainly at the forefront of our thoughts these days with wars on two fronts and the tragic news from Fort Hood. I would hope all would take a moment today to pause and recognize the service and sacrifice of our Veterans and take a moment of thought or prayer for those still serving. We are all fortunate and blessed to live in this country.
On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as “the Great War.” Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars.
“Junk tween” — that’s the new term for the mass amount of annoying “junk culture” neologisms and textual non-sequirters that tweens have been polluting the bandwidth with, the sort of stuff Twitter has been combating to keep its good name as a viable social media tool rather than a platform for kids to “talk trash.”
Ever pushing the visual boundaries, YouTube is now hosting their first online literary journal, dubbed Shape of a Box.
The journal offers a variety of the written word in aural form — an essay using Movie Maker software, poetry about Jodie Foster, to someone adding music to William Blake’s classic “Tyger, Tyger.”
Basically, the forum takes the sort of videos people normally upload onto YouTube and collects them in an anthology form. The question is: why didn’t someone think of this before? Online zines have been featuring videos with text for years now.
Prediction: other social media will follow with their own onsite zines — Facebook, MySpace, even Twitter. Seems inevitable.
Yet it is also an example of mind out there thinking creatively, to bring content to cyberspace in innovative ways.
