China Blocker Browser Extension

The Free Art and Technology (F.A.T.) recently made three fun tools for your personal battle against the Chinese government. It is all about Ai Weiwei.
The artist Ai Weiwei has been detained by Chinese authorities with very little known information about his status and wellbeing. He has been detained for 2 months. [Wikipedia]
F.A.T. made the tools for your personal anger.

The first tool is the China Blocker Browser Extension. Any Chinese website is blocked at your computer after installing the extension. It is replaced by an image with the up yours gesture on the Tiananmen Square in Beijing (see above).
The extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

The second tool is similar to the extension. It is a bookmarklet you can hit when visiting a doubtful website. Not necessarily a Chinese website. It works on any website, like Osocio. But damn you, don’t do that :-)

F.A.T.: “FUCK OFF !! Deutsche Bank, BMW and Siemens for keeping their mouths shut about Ai Weiwei’s arrest. Yes, just keep sponsoring art shows and culture in China and pretend nothing has happend …. FUCK OFF !!!”

F.A.T. is asking you to post your screen shots in the comments.

Ai Weiwei fuck off bookmarklet


The third fun tool is handicraft. Download the PDF, print double sided, cut and mount the parts.

fffffree Ai Weiwei glasses

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
