What If There Was Instagram Throughout History?

This is fabulous! Love the DaVinci.

Histagrams is the brainchild of Gusto NYC and Gavin Alaoen, two New York City based artists currently working for MTV Networks.

In a single topic tumblr named Histagrams, the duo imagine an alternate reality where Instagram is available throughout history. While not always historically accurate (e.g., Laocoön actually wanted to set fire to the horse and the moon photo was not from the Apollo 11 mission), the spirit of Instagram is instantly recognizable. They do well to mimic the type of photos shared as well as the hashtags and language used on the popular social network.

Hopefully the site continues to grow and they explore using actual Instagram filters to the images they select. For much more, visit Histagrams.com

Giving Tuesday the new Black Friday?

Giving Tuesday the new Black Friday?

Several large chains closed their doors on Black Friday in order to encourage family time and discourage the shopping craze that usually accompanies this “celebration.” Chains such as Nordstrom’s, Costco and Sam’s Club are examples of those who participated in this new trend. Benefits include good PR and happy employees.

Larger brands are also trying to encourage Giving Tuesday. Meant to replace or cancel out Black Friday, this new movement aims to start the holiday season on a note of giving instead of buying. Companies like eBay are participating in a match scheme where everything donated monetarily by consumers is matched by them.

I applaud these brands for standing out and doing something that they feel will make a difference. The new Giving Tuesday sounds great! Hopefully the sentiments portrayed by these movements will catch on to other companies next year.
