001. Ben the Bodyguard.

So, when John Gruber posted a nice link to Ben the Bodyguard’s website, we immediately knew it was something worth reposting. Ben the Bodyguard is an upcoming iOS application that will “protect your passwords, photos, contacts and other sensitive stuff.” Their promotional website has completely been built with HTML 5 and other web standards. Guess what? It’s animated, and it’s awesome.” (via Macgasm)

002. Intellectual Property Donor

“Why let all of your ideas die with you? Current Copyright law prevents anyone from building upon your creativity for 70 years after your death. Live on in collaboration with others. Make an intellectual property donation. By donating your IP into the public domain you will “promote the progress of science and useful arts” (U.S. Constitution). Ensure that your creativity will live on after you are gone, make a donation today.”

003. Storyville

“Storyville has been launched to change the way you engage and interact with the world of literature through your iPhone, iPad, and other mobile devices. We are managed by four partners who have a driving passion for, and considerable experience in, the rapidly changing technology and new media ecosystem. Storyville launches December 14th.”

004. 13 Ways of Looking at Liz Lemon

“…And, I mean: Liz Lemon was able to bang one out with James Franco, for fuck’s sake. James Franco and his lovely pillow bride. Do you really think a girl can get that under her belt and not realize she’s at least a little awesome? No. No, she can’t.”

005. Star Wars Movie Poster Series

“Since many Star Wars fans were saddened by the news of The Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner passing away, what better time than now for some cool fan-created art inspired by everyone’s favorite space opera. This simple but brilliant collection of minimalist crossover posters featuring familiar characters and fonts takes some great movies from years past and gives them a new feel by relating them to the Star Wars universe. Designer Matthew Ranzetta only created five posters so far (hopefully more are on the way), but his take on movies like Rebel Without a Cause and Empire Records should bring a smile to your face.” (via FirstShowing)
