I suppose that all people that read this blog have a good life. I know I do. I’ve got people that love me, live in a stable environment and get all the chances to develop myself socially an culturally. But off course millions and millions of people on this globe live in much worse conditions.
The bridge is big a charity effort that wants to unite people in a creative way to build a better future for others. Everyone can help build a mile of a virtual bridge around the world and for each mile companies like Adobe will give one dollar to a charity that you care about the most. It’s a great initiative and there are already pretty beautyfull creations and words added to the bridge. Currently there are 585 miles built and 24317 to go. So, get creative, let your heart speak and contribute.

And on a professional note: the site is very well executed and the concept is strong.
We cannot speak of consumer generated content here, but a better term could be carer generated content.
Good use of audio and video. The messages that welcome you speak immediately grab your attention and make you clear what it’s about on a very personal way.
I like the visual style to, but it took some time. The colours are very strange, even somewhat ugly. This could be deliberate so the site looks more spontaneous and from the hart then it would when the site would look very clean an over styled. This style makes the barrier for posting graphics yourself a bit lower.
It’s also worth noting how they integrate MySpace. The Bridge organisation has their own Myspace and user are invited to link to their own Myspace pages and most notably to download backgrounds and banners for your Myspace pace.
