This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    Solar Roadways

    I love this stuff. Smart people solving real problems, smartly.

    Inventors of Solar Roadways, Julie and Scott Brusaw, have raised over $2 millions through IndieGoGo and won funding from the Federal Highway Administration to build two prototypes (already complete) so despite the nay-sayers, this thing could happen, at least some aspect of it (until Big Energy gets their oily hands on the patents). Taking the politics out of the equation, challenges to overcome, it is an idea with merit.

    Viddler Moving On

    Viddler sent out emails today stating that they will be closing all personal and free accounts, focusing exclusively on video for business, no longer trying to compete with YouTube and Vimeo. I was one of the early adopters of Viddler back in 2007 but I also own a MySpace account and honestly, I cannot recall the last time I’ve logged into either one. The only worthwhile note is this sort of thing reminds me just how old I’m getting. Quick, open up a SnapChat account.

So here is one we liked from the gang at Victors & Spoils, a Colorado Ad Agency based on crowdsourcing (see their Facebook App called Fan Machine to get an idea what that means).
