School of Design Wants You…

Set to be the Alan Sugar of the design world, Philippe Starck is seeking applicants for a new BBC Two show, School of Design. (NB: This image has nothing to do with the programme, don’t worry)
BBC Two and Philippe Starck are looking for candidates to take part in a new six-part Apprentice-style TV series, School of Design. It’s premise is to discover new British design talent and ten designers will be chosen to live and work in Paris for two months, alongside the illustrious French designer. The selection will be then whittled down to one lucky winner who will earn a contract at Starck’s studio. Those wishing to apply should fill out the online application form here and be prepared to submit two drawings by the end of August. The series is scheduled to air in January of next year.

Indecision – an interactive hyper-videoblog story by Rupert Howe
Maybe you all know this already, but YouTube has recently added some new features to the site, under the rather dry title of YouTube Annotations, which allow you to add interactive commentary to your films. Another possibility is to add hyperlinks from your film to others, as is demonstrated in this sweet videoblog by Rupert Howe – watch the film until near the end, when it comes over all choose-your-own-adventure…
Update: As Rupert has noted below, you have to watch the video on YouTube itself to get the hyperlink bits to work (ah technology, why must you always be so complex?). Click here to view the effect in action.
