About Me

I am Lawrence Weber, a general lover of digital things, Head of Digital at Karmarama, FWA judge and writer, contributor to brand-e and a member of the IPA Digital Business Group.

If you really need to, then you can take a look at my LinkedIn profile or FWA interview for all the detail, but stay here for interesting stuff I find and some stuff of my own.

BTW- I live on an island called West Mersea, hence the oh so clever name of this blog.


The guys at FWA and brand-e are kind enough to let me contribute content, here are links to some FWA things

Jameson Facebook game

This site from Unit 9 and EVB moves the "Interactive film/Facebook" experience on another notch.

One of your sneaky Facebook friends has stolen a barrel of whisky and you need to follow the clues to find out who did it.

Nicely shot with some beautiful illustrations, this intergartes the Facebook API with a nice twist.

In case you were wondering, it was my no good friend Duncan who stole it.


Diesel gets clever with Facebook- TWICE!

Here are a couple of Facebook goodun's from Diesel.

The first is funny and simple and is called Be Stupid at Work. Take your Facebook updates and stream into an Adobe Air app that looks like a spreadsheet. Reminds me of the boss key in Liesure Suit Larry. Not sure there is a real need for this, but someone somewhere has a boss who doesn't like the internet.

The next is a real world digital thing, mashing up Facebook and everybody's favourite QR codes. Basically you use a QR code to Like a product and it appears in your news feed, infecting your friends with purchase desire.

This was done by Full Six

Both of these via the always inspiring Digital Buzz Blog



This will quickly become irritating but here is the first rich media, interactive Facebook profile. Someone else will do something more interesting with this, I hope, but they have allowed you to type the expected base requests in.



Great Facebook infographic animation

The thought of people studying Facebook and Infographics makes me a) jealous and b) feel old.

However, this animated Facebook infographic is rather charming and has some nice stats.
