Skull-A-Day


Skull-A-Day is an ongoing online art project/blog created by artist Noah Scalin. For its first year the site consisted of daily skull art creations made by Noah as well as weekly submissions by fans of the project. After Noah finished his project, he has continued to post daily images of skulls created by fans to the site.

Noah started by making an orange paper skull on June 4th, 2007 and posting it online saying, "I'm making a skull a day for a year". On June 2, 2008, Noah made his official last skull #365, though an additional skull labeled #365.25 was posted the day after since 2007 was a leap year. On June 3, 2008 the site was dubbed Skull-A-Day 2.0 and Noah began posting original skull art submissions from readers of the site daily.

In October 2008 a book based on the Skull-A-Day, featuring 150 images from the first half of the project, was published by Lark Books. It's called SKULLS.

June 3rd, 2009 marked the start of Skull-A-Day 3.0 in which the project continued to feature daily skull submissions, but with the addition of two new site editors: Skull-A-Day ├╝berfans Tatman and Citizen Agent.

June 3rd, 2010 marked the start of Skull-A-Day 4.0 in which the project continues to feature daily skull submissions, but with the addition of one more site editor: Abby AKA Azurafae.

PostSecret


PostSecret is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Select secrets are then posted on the PostSecret website which is updated every sunday, or used for PostSecret's books or museum exhibits.

In October 2007, the PostSecret Community was launched (www.postsecretcommunity.com). Questions have been raised about how the forum affects the anonymity of the PostSecret project, but for those involved on the Community board, there seems to be a positive response of people who haven't sent in a postcard or haven't seen their secret on the site sharing their secrets with other PostSecret fans.

Interested with PostSecret? Then read here to know how to mail your secrets?

In October 2006, everyone has a suprise that the blog of this multi-billion dollar company has been hacked with a very odd post that suggested they were cancelling their click-to-call service (see the captured picture below.) The post was at googleblog.blogspot.com/2006/10/google-click-to-call-project-cancelled.html, although it has been removed. Even though the blog post was quickly taken down, a number of people saw it on the blog or in their RSS readers.
