Every Friday, we tell you about the cool stuff we've seen this week and provide a little insight into the goings on at Clearbox Communications. Here's your fix for this week - have a great weekend!What we've been up toWe've been helping the team at Jyrobike with the launch of their new website, which you can see right now at jyrobike.com.The new and improved website is the first in a range of activities that we're working on over the coming months as the brand gears up or launch via Kickstarter in May 2014.This week, we've also been working with a local sports club on a very exciting campaign that will go live in the next month or so - more to follow on that later…In other Clearbox news, we've signed up for the next Belfast Jam event on April 24th. If you're interested in networking, social media and local business then sign up now at http://www.belfastjam.com/ - see you there!Stuff we've lovedThe invention that gave birth to the internetcelebrated a significant birthday on Wednesday when Sir Tim Berners-Lee's world wide web turned 25. The impact of his 'information management system' on the world is there for everyone to see, revolutionising global communications and giving birth to hundreds of billion dollar brands.We don't know about you, but one of the apps we use most at home is BBC's iPlayer and we were excited to hear the Corporation's announcement of changes to the online video player to make it more tablet and smartphone friendly. It'll also be the new home of BBC Three, despite a petition to save the TV channel attracting over 200,000 signatures…At Clearbox, we love social media and we (well, some of us) love football so we really enjoyed the #DareToZlatan twitter campaign.Created by Nike Football and driven through the twitter profile of PSG and Sweden megastar Zlatan Ibrahimović, the campaign invited questions from fans which the star (or his team) replied to. Some responses were retweeted over 50,000 times and the extremely high levels of engagement saw the hashtag trend in football circles for much of the day of the campaign.Finally, we'd like to say a big congratulations to our friends at the Belfast Telegraph for the launch of the 50 Jobs in 50 Days campaign. The scheme, aimed at helping young people find employment, was launched by the Duke of York during a special visit to Bel Tel HQ. A great initiative - well done to everyone involved.
