CrowdedInk.com - Fun with TWITTER avatars


This has nothing to do with eLearning!  But, I think its VERY cool.  And it does point to the power of the new web.  You are free to make what ever connections you'd like to learning and technology.

So, here's the story.  I wanted to find a web app that would pull out all of the avatars of my Twitter followers and put them into a collage.jpg.

I sent out the question to my twitter peeps and this was the first reponse that I got back...



So, I clicked on the link from @reedracer to crowdedink.com.  It worked great!  Interface was easy and I very quickly had a cool collage of my twitter peeps.  Oh, yea...the reason why crowdedink.com creates these images for you is so you can put the image on a product:  mug, t-shirt, beer stein, etc.  All was cool until I realized that I could not download the collage image for my own purposes.  Huge bummer...



Very shortly after I was disappointed, I was pleasantly surprised by the following email...



So cool!  Seriously!  A beautiful first hand experience of a company responding to its customer's conversations on the new web.  I LOVE IT!  I've now been spreading the word about crowdedink AND ZAZZLE.  The image was saved into my ZAZZLE account and I found all sorts of products to apply my image too.  Check out these sweet shoes ;-)  Oh yea, I'm now working on a cool design for zazzle skateboard for my son.
