Adsoftheworld have put our Faceless people work on their excellent site. We're chuffed. Adsoftheworld is a commercial archive of, well, ads of the world, and it's a great resource - go lookysee here. And don't forget to check out the Faceless people page on there.

There's a whole bunch of 'software as service' type sites cropping up, but which provide the service free. Picjuice lets you manipulate your photos as does Pixlr whereas Effect Generator provides Flash for the masses. These are great services. Wonder what the business model is? Still, let's enjoy it as long as it remains. It's a trend big enough that the mighty Adobe have launched a Photoshop Express website which does much the same as Picjuice and Pixlr but you have to sign up for an account - mind you you also get 2GB of free storage.

Space is sooooo cheap nowadays. Up to 10GB from Humyo to store and share whatever you like (as long as it's a file, and I guess as long as it's legal and all that). They have a business service too - in case you want to store more than 10GB. It's amazing to us that this could be a viable business model - well, amazing to those of us who can recall our first 32MB portable MP3 player. The very best of luck to them.

Visit4info has a whole bunch of TV and cinema ads. Useful resource. You can search by sensible categories and you can download the videos. Or you can just browse about and be entertained for a short while - yes, it turns out that some of these TV and cinema ads actually entertain and that can be worthwhile in brand development terms. Who'd have thought it?

Found a site that has links to hundreds of web 2.o sites doing all sorts of crazy things. You do wonder what some of the business models look like. Perhaps best not to ask too many questions.
