An animation showing edits to the OpenStreetMap.org project during 2008. OpenStreetMap is a wiki-style map of the world and this animation displays a white flash each time a way is entered or updated. Some edits are a result of a physical local survey by a contributor with a GPS unit and taking notes, other edits are done remotely using aerial photography or out-of-copyright maps, and some are bulk imports of official data.
OpenStreetMap started in 2004 and the rate of contributions is accelerating with four times as many people contributing to the project in 2008 compared to 2007. During the year, edits were made by some 20,000 individuals and there were bulk imports of data for many places, including the USA, India, Italy and Belarus which are clearly visible in the animation.

This is the first of two video sketches illustrating some of the ideas and principles behind Dentsu London's communications strategy Making Future Magic bit.ly/makingfuturemagic_phil
Here, media includes messages from friends and social services, like Foursquare or Twitter, and also more functional messages from companies or services like banks or airlines alongside large traditional big 'M' Media (like broadcast or news publishing).
The second sketch "The Journey", looks at train travel. You can see it here vimeo.com/16423237
This is part of a collaboration between Dentsu London and BERG. You can read more about both films at Dentsu London's blog bit.ly/mediasurfaces and on BERG's blog here bit.ly/incidentalmedia and here bit.ly/thejourney_ms
