Try A Zen Moment of Creativity with Elements by Lunarr

9 Feb

I just signed up for elements, a new visual Twitter like service by Lunarr. Simply beautiful. Take a minute to explore the incredibly striking images and get zeninspired. Hideshi Hamaguchi is co-founder and is an expert in strategy and design, two of my favorite subjects. Here’s what founders say about the new service:

一期一会 We’ve brought the cultural concept of “ichi-go ichi-e” into LUNARR elements. It means “one chance, one meeting,” and is traditionally at the center of a Japanese tea ceremony. It’s the idea that you must treat your interaction with others as if it is the last time you will see them.

With elements, we invite you to come take part in “ichi-go ichi-e.” You will view inspirational images and quotes (elements) one at a time with the option of casting the image to your friends, which will increase the possibility that they will see the same element; or keeping it yourself if you like it.

The elements will gradually become customized for what you might find inspirational based on your actions, those you follow or those who follow you, the elements others cast in your direction and more. We also welcome you to become a catalyst of inspiration by uploading your own elements or clipping them from the web.

You can check out a few of my own photos here. When you join, you have the option of finding or inviting friends to follow, similar to the Twitter model.

logoTwhirl is a desktop client for social software such as Twitter and  Friendfeed. Just this weekend, Loic Le Meur introduced a new preview version of Twhirl which includes Ping.fm and Seesmic video integration.It’s very cool. To get your beta invitation to this special preview, click here.

The following are a few of the new features of this new preview release:

Catch more tweets from people talking about you and then engage them:  your @username timeline displays all of the tweets that mention your username.

Post your messages from Twhirl to Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, WordPress and a other services: this is all done with Ping.fm integration; in addition you can now also send a video via Seesmic to all the social media nets you setup.

Record a video and reply to your friends straight from Twhirl: reply to any of your friends straight from Twhirl and follow the conversation–in real time.

Follow in near-real time any topic, brand or username with the new saved searches showing up in your main timeline: your friends tweets and saved searches appear in the same stream to make it all easy to follow.

Check out Robert Scoble’s interview with Loic — it’s an informative walk-through of Twhirl’s new features:
