…Jelli is here to kill the radio?

Jelli Logo

The radio is dead, and Jelli is here to replace it.

Ok, so maybe that’s a bit extreme, but the concept behind Jelli is a fascinating one, and does have the potential to change radio as we know it.


Essentially, Jelly is a single radio station that’s 100% listener controlled. Users can nominate songs, vote for songs they like, and bomb the ones they don’t, and the song with the most votes at the end of the currently playing track gets the next spot in line. The more you listen, the more power you gain, though even first timers have the ability to push a song over the edge.

The result is a mix of music that will surprise and delight, with an ever changing flow of community taste and creative control.

Just don’t expect to hear the Billboard Top 40 playing on repeat any time soon.


…Flow has an amazing icon?


A popular program’s icon is something that you probably interact with on a daily basis, so it’s always interesting to get into the mind of an icon designer to see just what decisions they’re making during their design process.

Sebastiaan de With is the man behind the new icon for Flow (an FTP client for the Mac that is heavy on both form and function) and his work is fantastic.

The end result is a swirl (or is it a flow) of colors that grabs the eye and demands clickage, but the steps that he takes to get to that end result are what’s interesting.

Flow there now.

…flOw is fabolous?


flOw is as much soothing meditation as it is game, but it’s definitely unique. Move your mouse around to control your creature, and eat other creatures to evolve. It’s non-violent video gaming at its finest, though you’ll miss a good shotgun session after a few minutes.
