It's getting warmer in Whitehorse–in the low -20s! But last week was -35-40! So I've had some indoor time to surf the net and find cool sites to keep you entertained.

I found most of them on FWA's (Favourite Website Awards) website.

The following three sites are a taste of the amazing possibilities of online interactivity. 

 

holymountain.nfb.ca

This National Film Board site explores the Montreal's iconic mountain, 'holy' Mount Royal, and people's connection to it. It's chock-full of historic videos, anecdotes, quotes, and moody moving visuals. Do you think it captures Mount Royal?

 

nespresso.com/variations

Nespresso's eye candy fantasy land reminds me of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory with beautiful dreamy music. I'm not convinced that flavoured coffee is something I'll partake in but it's a delicious sight to see. Does it make you want to order the vanilla?

 

mekanism.com

The loading page for Mekanism describes itself as "storytelling for emerging media". I haven't explored the site much yet, but I love their inspiring proposition and every time I hit refresh a huh-larious scene of historic storytelling mediums shows. Let us know what you think of the work!

 

What's the next generation of your website going to look like?
