Burger King's augmented reality banner created out of Crispin Porter + Bogusky promoted BK's value menu. Viewers would hold up any old dollar bill to their web ams and get a taste of what the greenback can buy. They can also use their faces to make like The King.

Your friends are important to you, so we built them in. Now you’re able to chat, share that piano-playing-cat video everyone’s going to love, or just see what your friends are up to, regardless of what site you’re on. Your favorite sites are important to you, so we built them in too. Now you can access them from anywhere, without leaving the page you’re on. And RockMelt will tell you when something new happens.
Share or tweet links often? Yeah, us too. No more wading through each site’s goofy share widget or copy-pasting URLs. We built sharing directly into the browser, right next to the URL bar. Like a site or story? Click “Share” and BAM – link shared. You can use it on any site to post to Facebook or tweet about it on Twitter. It’s just one click away. That easy."

This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time and a great execution of an offline/online idea.To promote his new show on TBS, Conan is sending a blimp up and down the East Coast for the month of October. You can follow it on Twitter or Foursquare for check-ins above his favorite spots. The project also implements the first ever auto-updating check-in location. So, spot the blimp and get a "Conan Blimpspotter" badge. Pretty cool. The talented folks over at Breakfast put this together.

I been thinking and reading a lot lately about the reinvention of the agency structure. I've worked at big shops in NYC and small shops in RIC, and what's interesting (and frustrating) is they both suffer from the same problems that prevent true collaborative development.So, I made a quick list of things that we do at RTH to try to stay a free-range shop. 1. Stop referring to writers and art directors as "creatives." Everyone should be.
2. Don't tolerate egos - they are cancers to the process
3. Kick off projects with ALL members of the team present - not just planners and account peeps
4. Write an internal brief together
5. Set up a blog or wiki where briefs, research, articles, inspiration and ideas can live and be shared
6. Protect each person's core value to the team, but challenge everyone to contribute to all aspects of the project by making everyone responsible for success
7. Don't work the teams to death
8. Promote and reward all idea sharing from everyone on the team - no idea is stupid (within reason)
9. Drink and bullshit together
Would you add anything?

I'm a hot sauce snob. I admit it. I love the stuff and am always seeking out the latest and hottest. Out of the hundreds I've tried, I've never seen one packaged as beautifully as Fuego Hot Sauce.
The line of sauces was designed by University of Washington student, Stephanie Hughes. I love the raw, natural materials and the showcase of the sauce in the small elixir-style bottle. There's always something so gravitating about the use of wood and cork. The numbered heat scale labeling system is a great touch too.
The name of the line, Fuego Hot Sauce," is a little obvious, but all of the other details more than make up for it.
