Run a Website or Blog? You Can Help Japan With One Code Snippet

, , , , , , , , ,

If you run your own site — and we know lots of you do — you can use your pageviews and influence to help Japanese people struggling to recover from yesterday’s devastating natural disasters. All you need is a couple lines of code from the Hello Bar.

We showed off the Hello Bar a while ago; it’s a slender bar that floats at the top of your website, giving visitors a brief message and a link.

Best of all, you only have to insert the code snippet on your site once. From a convenient web dashboard, you can customize the bar with your colors and text. You can also tweak the behaviors of the bar and easily turn it on or off from the dashboard. All of this makes it incredibly easy to solicit donations for Japan now, then turn the bar off or change the message and link later, if you so desire.

For example, you might set your Hello Bar to read something like, “Japan has been hit by a devastating earthquake and tsunami. Click here to make a Red Cross donation.” Then later, when Japan is well on its way to recovery, you can change the bar to contain a message about your favorite charity instead, or simply switch the bar off for the time being.

You can set the bar to appear for a brief interval at the beginning of a website visit and hide itself afterward. If you run multiple websites, you can run multiple Hello Bars, again controlling them all from the same dashboard.

The Hello Bar comes from UX design shop digital-telepathy. If you haven’t used Hello Bar before, you’ll need a new account; just sign up with the invite code “helpjapan.”

And if you don’t feel like signing up for a new app, you can just use this code anywhere in the <body> tag of your site to display a standard donation request:

That code can be used on a Tumblr, WordPress or Blogger blog, too; here are some detailed instructions.

As for which links to use, that’s largely up to you. Here are a few reputable organizations that are collecting funds and working with organizations in Japan to meet the needs of Japanese people:

Website Challenges Visitors to Do Nothing

, , , , , ,



We’ve found it: the perfect weekend activity. Here’s a website that doesn’t want you to do anything. That’s right, nothing.

This simple site, Do Nothing for Two Minutes, challenges you to do just that — nothing — and if you touch your mouse or keyboard during the countdown, you’re greeted with a “Fail” message.

We would suggest Do Nothing for 2 Minutes creator Alex Tew and developer Ben Dowling add a motion-sensing webcam to the mix, so the only way to pass this challenging test would be to remain still, barely breathing.

According to TechCrunch, Tew said,

“I had been thinking how we spend every waking minute of the day with access to an unlimited supply of information, to the point of information overload. i also read somewhere that there is evidence that our brains are being re-wired by the internet, because we get a little dopamine kick every time we check our e-mail or Twitter or Facebook and there’s a new update. So we’re all developing a bit of ADD. which is probably not great in terms of being productive.”

Who is this guy, anyway? You might remember Alex Tew from 2005, when he convinced visitors to his Million Dollar Home Page to buy pixels on a million-pixel graphic for $1 apiece. It was a huge hit, bringing in $1,037,100 to help pay for his college education.

His follow-ons haven’t been nearly as successful, including a lotto scheme called Pixelotto, PopJam, originally a social media humor site that’s now taken a turn toward becoming a ChatRoullette-style site, SockandAwe where visitors could throw a shoe at George W. Bush, and OneMillionPeople, where visitors submit their photos for free, with the goal of gathering a million “faces of a digital generation” into a 1,250-page coffee-table book of the photos. Tew hopes to sell that book for $100 per copy, as well as sell sponsorships for each page online.

For all his trouble, he was called “the most annoying man on the Internet” by the Daily Telegraph.

Perhaps to soothe his soul, Tew is focusing on a more Zen-like approach with his new do-nothing site. From the looks of it, it’s picking up some momentum, but there’s no monetization scheme involved with this one that we can see — just pure relaxation.

As you can see in the graphic above, I succeeded in doing nothing for the full two minutes. Sorry, boss. No ADD here. I’m not alone — there are already 27,000 Facebook user who like this.

Come on, high-powered, driven people. It’s the weekend; time to give yourself a time out. Go ahead, take a couple of minutes, listen to the relaxing sounds of the ocean and just do nothing. It might do you some good.

How about it, readers? Did you pass the test?
