Photo Apps Tackling Air Quality Issues in Beijing

29
Mar
CIMG4350_0.JPG

Beijing and other Chinese cities are some of the most dangerous and toxic cities to live in in the world. Don't believe that? Just check out the daily pollution postings that are available throughout the country. 

 

We can have a never ending debate over who is responsible for this situation, at the end of the day though, we all need to change our habits AND there needs to be more awareness  being raised over this issue. 

 

Apps for Change?

 

Let's all take a leaf out of Obama's PR team and their Yes We Can mantra. We do have the strength to change the situation in China from our own actions on a day to day basis. 

 

Well it turns out that the creative kids over at OgilvyOne team have come up with a clear sky app in the name of Earth Hour on March 29. 

 

The company are hoping to get users to think about the pollution situation in China and remember what their favorite landscapes look like without the thick layer of pollution hanging over the city. 

 

They made the app for free in the name of Earth Hour which is a cause close to their heart. 

 

How does it work? 

 

The app, created by the Beijing team of OgilvyOne is built like a rough version of Instragram. No filter, no fancy framing, all the hashtags you want though. 

 

Once you've snapped a polluted scene of anything, you roughly fill in the sky with blue and the app "beautifies" it by making the sky a perfect blue. 

 

After that you can post it on Wechat and Weibo and use all the #hashtags you can possibly think of related to #pollution in #China. OK FINE I WILL STOP NOW. 

 

Earth Hour?

 

Although the final result looks a bit like an amateur photoshop user is trying to force us to believe in the blue skies of China's cities, the app is meant to serve more as a buzz about the situation more than a actual photo altering app. 

 

Earth Hour, for those who are not familiar with this particular PR stunt is organized by the World Wide Fund and is meant to remind us all of all that pesky energy we use on a daily basis is actually not infinite and we do need to remember how important is it to monitor our energy use. 

 

This message is particularly crucial for residents of the cities of China as the situation is particularly pressing when it comes to awareness and change. 

 

Let's not get into the details of a difficult and complex situation, but let's all beautify our favorite views of Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, and all the other major cities!

Dropbox Reinstated in China

19
Feb
dropbox.jpg

Lo and behold, the Chinese have produced a miracle of sorts, just in time for the start of the year of the Horse. 

 
In the spirit of celebration no doubt, the magnificent blazing firewall of China has allowed the file-sharing service Dropbox back onto the safe side of the internet. 
 

News for us

 
After a long 4 year stint as a banned service in China, the forces that be have agreed it is time to allow Dropbox back. 
 
What this means for us is that it will now be possible to rely on the service when in and out of the country. Indeed, for those of us not permanently resident in China but find ourselves jotted around the world, not being able to rely on the service when in China can prove difficult at the best of times. 
 
Indeed, especially thanks to Dropbox' automatic upload options, one can soon forget to double-save documents elsewhere. 
 

Better service all around

 
When it comes to the sharing side, being able to link people to Dropbox within China will also make life easier for us. 
 
Considering the growing popularity of these types of services, it becomes harder for China to silence the fact that it blocks it. 
 

Not allowed in the first place

 
Some would ask what is so dangerous about Dropbox that got it banned to start with. It can't be the candid drawings offered on the front page surely. 
 
A good guess would be that Dropbox type services make it easy for people to share sensitive information anonymously and without anyone being able to have access to it (and by anyone, we mean those professional snoopers we hear so much about). 
 

Chinese Dropbox?

 
The reality today is that there are many Chinese versions of what Dropbox offers. Therefore the idea that it is banned because of sensitive information is no longer valid. 
 
Perhaps this could explain why the country has let them back in again. Maybe they have a quota of banned websites at any one point and Dropbox got bumped off the list. 
 
In all seriousness though, this could be the start of a new era where the powers that be are accepting the growing need for these services in a constantly communicable world. 
 
Long live Dropbox!
