Projects

These are things I enjoy, creative outlets, causes and groups, about which I am passionate:

OHOS = OverHerd-OverScene / OverHeard-OverSeenOHOS is the abbreviation I use for two blog sites I created: OverHerd+OverScene and Overheard+Overseen, on WordPress and Tumblr, respectively. OHOS started out as a news, entertainment, media, blogging and content project of mine, intended to showcase my work, along with submissions from the general public.

The original purpose of OHOS was to create, curate and present the strange, interesting, noteworthy and/or newsworthy things people say and do; the funny, weird, odd, endearing, inspiring and/or horrific. But today, sans submissions, OHOS has simply become an outlet for my own street photography, documenting people, places, scenarios, street art and graffiti.

piclister - a Russ Murray concept / projectPicLister – this is a mobile app and “social shopping” web service project, which is an idea-in-progress. Hoping for a formal launch one day soon, possibly with venture capital funding!

But in the end, I might just undertake the PicLister app project myself, maybe with the help of a local or offshore developer (or two) that will work and invest their “sweat equity” towards a future return (the standard startup mantra). So…let me know if you know a guy, who knows a guy, who…well, you know what I mean…  🙂

talkback app = conversations instead of messagesAnd then there’s talkback – an app concept and project I just launched (as if I needed another distraction) to enable more conversational digital interactions between people in messaging and social media. There will be more information coming about it soon, as the idea evolves into imagined functionality, and an actual business plan…
