Cake Cam

Cake Cam

Just a little Intermezzo. Recently there was a short twitter discussion between a British Apple Pie lover @Mikeachim and an American Cake Guru @nerdseyview about the question whether a pie is or is not the same as a cake. For me the internet is all about association. So I devote this post to those two and to the lady who published this Cam Cake on Flickr and apparently left Flickr afterward as a Self Confessed Diaper Changer Extraordinaire.

And before I forget, my friends of Freshome inspired me to this post.

Why you should visit Vienna

I’m not so much into video. However I created this “video”, actually more as a slide show with music, to see how that works when using picasa. It works well.

The second reason was I’d put together some photos of previous visits to Vienna and to ask my readers whether they would recognize some items.

Thirdly I used it to enter a social media competition by Radisson Blue.

The winner of the competition is my travel blogger friend Inga Rós Antoníusdóttir (@Inga_Ros) from Iceland who, with her hubby (@Hjörtur), has run an exemplary social media campaign to win this competition including even their own FB Group 5 Little Elves.

Amazingly there were 3 competitors from Iceland between the first 10 finalists. In total Radisson got over 10 k applicants….I would say it was a good example of a social media campaign, but what amazes me after all that Radisson doesn’t show anything anymore on their site from the competition itself. They could have made good stories and they generated a few good story lines and slogans…
