Debugging AS3 with firebug's console

Most probably you've already heard about firebug, if you haven't, I really recommend you go give it a spin right now.

Basically, firebug let's you lift the hood in your browser and see pretty much everything that's happening in there. It lets you edit, and monitor all HTML, CSS, Javascript live in any web page - it even lets you edit those objects on the fly!

It also gives you a fantastic console that lets you expose information about what's flowing through your scripts. Adding a global variable named "console" it exposes many methods that allow you to write to the Firebug console.

The really cool thing is that from flash you can call "console" using ExternalInterface, and any object you pass will be dumped as if it was a javascript object.

try it out:

ExternalInterface.call("console.log",{foo:123,bar:"da",boo:{da:12,beh:[123,145,"dfa",{fa:[0,1,2,4,5]}]}});

and you will see the output in the image above.

Wieden & Kennedy Website

Wieden & Kennedy Website

For it's 25th Anniversary as the biggest independent Advertising Agency, Wieden & Kennedy relaunched their website to celebrate and showcase their 25 years of work. After just a couple of discussions with the Agency, we realized that the best way to showcase all their immense amount of work, was to focus on all their 'metadata'. That is, show the work and illustrate around each piece as much related content as we could find. That way we created an experience that is centered on keyword navigation, either related to people, projects, clients, awards or a large set of general tags.

Adobe Ideas 2006

Adobe Ideas 2006

A cellphone multiuser installation I made for the Adobe "ideas" conference in Tokyo, August 4, 2006.

Everyone in the audience could access the application by using their cellphones and first taking a snapshot of a QRCode that held the url of the flashlite client. Once in, they'd enter a username, select their avatar, and then they'd show up in the big screen infront of them. They could walk around their avatars and send messages using their keypad, but it didn't take long until they figured out that by pressing '0' they'd fire lasers from their eyes! The objective of the game was becoming the last survivor in screen.

newsmap

newsmap

Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator.

A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator. Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information. Newsmap's objective takes that goal a step further and provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe.

Newsmap's objective is to simply demonstrate visually the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media.

social circles

social circles

Social Circles intends to partially reveal the social networks that emerge in mailing lists. The idea was to visualize in near real-time the social hierarchies and the main subjects they address. When subscribing to a mailing you never know who the principals are, how many people are listening or what subjects they are talking about. It's like entering a meeting room with plenty of people in the darkness and then having to learn who is who by just listening to their voices.

Social Circles aims to raise the lights in that room just enough to let you enhance your perception of what?s happening. At a glance it allows an easy way of grasping the whole situation by highlighting who is participating, who is "visually" central to that group, and displaying the topics everyone is talking about. How does the list structure itself? Is it moderated? Is it chaotic?

habitat perspectives

habitat perspectives

The idea behind Habitat Perspectives is visualizing spatio-temporaly the places we inhabit. You will be able to follow the participants live, posting imagery to this application from the road through gps enabled mobile media. The target is to conceptualise how the perception of the city differs from participant to participant depending on their everyday habits. Though in a beginning only a black background will predominate in the application, as participants post more and more content, a map of the city, and the map of each of the participants "places" will slowly start emerging.
