Blog Action Day Campaign — Learn Social Media by Example

Blog Action Day 2010: Water from Blog Action Day on Vimeo.

Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that invites bloggers from around the world to form a united front by tackling the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global conversation on a topic. This year’s topic is water.

What is it about?

Blog Action Day 2010 : Water

Blog Action Day was originally started by Collis and Cyan Ta’eed in the summer of 2007 to raise public awareness about Environmental issues, and they did it by recruiting thousands of bloggers to write about the topic on the 15th of October, 2007 creating the yearly tradition of blog action day. In 2009 the Block Action day campaign was entrusted to Change.org, a leading blog network that focuses on social issues, to take responsibility for Blog Action day and take it to the next level.

The primary aim for Blog Action Day is to create a conversion and social discourse about an issue raising its profile and helping people to come up with solutions for problems that affect the world, think about it as crowd-sourcing problem solving. Already tackling issues as the environment(’07) , poverty(’08), and climate change(’09) they set their sight on Water for this year.

Quirky News of the Web — December 2010

Previous quirky news posts: JanuaryFebruaryMarchApril - May- JuneJuly - August - September - October - November – December

There are always smaller headlines that tend to go unnoticed. They are the headlines that let us know how individualistic and unique some of the interactions on the web can be, and how much social media is shaping our world in ways that we could not have fathomed 20 years ago.

Therefore, the Quirky News of the Web section will be dedicated to those pieces of news that might go unnoticed but still pack quite the punch.

Let’s Have a Toast To The A**holes

We Do What You Don't Have The Balls To Do!

Ending a relationship is an emotional and generally unpleasant experience to all the parties involved. It’s a time when emotions run high and people are mostly high strung, so people might think twice before ending their long term relationships in person. To avoid the face to face interaction, people resort to a variety of non-confrontational methods such as phone, email, an SMS or even a tweet. The next evolution in breaking-up technology is certainly the website iDUMP4U, which will handle the mess for you for a small fee.

All you need to do is provide them with the information they need to call your partner and inform them on how they sucked, are not worth being around you and how they are not even worth your time to break-up with them personally. In case you wonder what kind of douche bags would do this for a living, make sure to check out their “accomplishments” on their Youtube channel.
