The bad news: We won’t be submitting any work for the Kancil Awards, this year.
The good news: We’ve got the go-ahead for submissions for the Webby Awards.
It’s amazing how much the industry has changed over the period of a year.
Why, just look at the new Kancil Awards website. It’s so much better than that piece of crap they did last year. Honestly, guys, well done! And welcome to the World Wide Web.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to this year’s festival. There’s some really good speakers including CP + B’s Alex Burnard and of course, Iain Tate from Poke London. And, fingers-crossed, there should be even better interactive work this time around.
I really hope I can make it for the talks. And if I win anything again, well, that would be nice, too.

With a nod to Isaac Asimov:
1. A campaign microsite may not leave a human being unfulfilled or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to boredom.
2. A campaign microsite must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A campaign microsite must justify its own existence as long as such an existence does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Ikea Malaysia doesn’t have one of the most organized websites on the Internet, but they do have a pretty entertaining online contest, at the moment.
It’s called Love My Home and it features an interactive survey that’s simple, straight-to-the-point and most of important of all, fun.
Take the contest and stand to win RM1000. And can you buy me one of those robotic designer lamps, if you do?
I read somewhere that the reason why Japanese advertising is sometimes difficult to understand is because it’s so subtle.
That, and a whole lotta quirky.
Especially this Kendo blog widget, which features a Kendoka who whacks the living crap out of bad words in your copy.
It’s awesome! Try it.
Needless to say, the other winning entries were pretty interesting, too.
And a whole lotta ‘quirky’.
