The final company which will be presenting at ScenePR’s Starters+Startups: The Future of SoLoMo & You, is WeMakeCoolSh.it (whose name alone is cool).
I started my research on them, by once again, visiting their website, which is also very cool.
Being presented with a number of different thumbnails from which I could select, I opted for the top left box, where I learned about Matt+Mark, WeMakeCoolSh.it’s founders.
FYI, theses guys are BEASTS.
Their combined resumes are a veritable Who’s Who of agency luminaries, and include stints at Pepsi, Sony, Philips, IBM, Nike, American Express, DHL, MoMA, LEGO and TiVO (Matt) and R/GA , Organic, Tribal DDB, Ogilvy, Disney, CNN and Adobe (Mark).
From there, I headed back to the home page and clicked on the L Train Network box, which took me to the video where they talked about the pirate network they built for the L train in New York.
Since WeMakeCoolSh.it may be talking about their L Train project, I decided to dig a little deeper and check out more of the related content they offered on the site.
So I checked out the flyer they made to promote the L Train network.
I got lost on a few Sony Ericsson Xperia Studio videos, especially, this one:
After I perused a bunch of additional entries on their site, I decided to see if they had any apps in the iTunes app store.
They don’t have any.
But they have created two apps in the past (while with other agencies), one for Staples
and another for XBOX.
I looked for these guys on Facebook (and couldn’t find them) and on Twitter (and found them).
But I get that these guys ‘get it’ and won’t hold the failure to (
be like sheep and) have a Facebook page against them.
I’m really looking forward to this presentation, and if I haven’t invited you yet, please try to come through and check out all the presenters on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 form 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at the Showbiz Store & Cafe, 19 W 21st Street, NY, NY 10010 (ground floor).
