It almost doesn’t seem fair that this is such a short video. But either way, it’s a great way to admire what Google has done over the last 11 years.

Mini & Krink Team Up With Dripping Ink

I love it when brands try something different and stop advertising to start creating. It engages people on another level, provides them with a connection that previously didn’t exist.

Almost never, let alone as a “maintenance” page for Google Wave… Ok so it makes complete sense for Wave, but rarely do you see anything like this from Google!
