Cuban Council Did Backend Concept Design Frontend IA Identity Where to begin ... the first of its kind, destination extraordinaire, overflowing with inspiration, personality and humor. .. the pixel-perfect portal for designers and design-minded developers since nineteen hundred and ninety something or another. Kaliber10000 (or K10k) was the brain-child of Toke, Michael & Per - it was an independent, non-commercial web zine which strived to inspire, to provoke, to allow both others & ourselves the joy of having full artistic freedom – to give people a break, and re-charge their batteries. K10k was built up around the weekly “issue” - an experiment-like format where anything went, and where designers / design teams got to strut their stuff, flex their creative muscles, without having to worry about anyone looking over their shoulder. While there's a deep fondness for the community, artwork and innovation that was catalyzed by K10k, we are strong believers that timing is everything.
Kula ringKula, also known as the kula exchange or kula ring, is a ceremonial exchange system conducted in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea. The Kula ring was made famous by the father of modern Anthropology, Bronislaw Malinowski, who used this test case to argue for the universality of rational decision making (even among 'natives'), and for the cultural nature of the object of their effort. Malinowski's path-breaking work, Argonauts of the Western Pacific (1922), directly confronted the question, "why would men risk life and limb to travel across huge expanses of dangerous ocean to give away what appear to be worthless trinkets?" Malinowski carefully traced the network of exchanges of bracelets and necklaces across the Trobriand Islands, and established that they were part of a system of exchange (the Kula ring), and that this exchange system was clearly linked to political authority.

Bigumigu * Yaratıcı bünyeler için günlük besin kaynağıREPPING THE STREETS SINCE 2000chumbyChumby Industries closed its doors in December 2011, and laid off all of its employees. Since then, the service has been maintained by a small group of volunteers, and paid for by a succession of companies. The volunteers were notified that the funding would cease at the end of February, 2013, with the prospect of the devices being rendered completely useless. In January 2013, one of the volunteers initiated an effort to create a company to acquire all of the remaining assets of Chumby Industries for the purpose of maintaining the service. However, the cost of maintaining the full service in its previous form was prohibitively expensive for an individual to fund. The database of user accounts, device registrations, widgets, channels, etc. has been completely backed up for the purpose of restoring the full service at some future date, once the economics have been set up to make the service sustainable. This "stub" service is designed to support the following products:
