Launch: Around The World For Free

Here’s a big one… We just finished collaborating with BrightRedPixels on the interactive map for CBS’s second season of Around The World For Free! The Champion makes its way around the world without any money, just some help from the people using our app.

Around The World For Free Flash App

We display Jeff’s location on a Google Map and we plot his journey by connecting the bits of media he uploads from his GPS enabled devices. Users can see where he’s been and where he’s trying to get to and drop tips or photos along the way to help him out.

We’d like to thank Anthony Tripaldi and Brian Maci, the flash developers on our team for kicking major butt on this project. For more insight into the technical side of things, read Anthony’s blog post. They worked closely with Grant at Grail Interactive who created the custom CMS that sends us the info we need to display. Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the bitcoin trading platforms that created the look and feel, but maybe someone reading this can comment below for the record.
