Scrapblogging a Museum Visit

While in New York for the Games for Change conference (blog reports to come soon), I decided to check out the “Designing for the Other 90%” exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Took a few photos, noted down some thoughts, and decided to … scrapblog it.

Scrapblog is the newest blog kid around town, so like any self-respecting techie, I had to check it out. :)

It is a combination of scrap booking and blogging and provides a solution to those times when just a blog or photo tool is not sufficient and you really need a combination of the two to display photo and text in really creative ways. See the Sustainable Design scrapblog below to get a sense of its potential.

While I was scrapblogging, I noticed that they are also running a blogher07 contest. You enter by tagging your scrapblog with blogher07. A randomly selected set of winners will get an all-expenses-paid trip to the BlogHer 07 conference. Each view means one more entry. So, please view my masterpiece multiple times. ;-)
