I just wanted to share some hot new finds.
#1 MelanomaGirl.com is a site I found via Facebook (believe it or not). I kinda went off on a tangent on there the other day. I guess I don't know how to deal with it when I see a mole that looks suspicious to me or when my friends post (over and over) "OMG I got so sunburned today!" or "I love my new tanning bed place!" I mean, come on people. All I'm asking is wear sunblock and stay away from tanning beds. (I mean, any advice, btw?) Anywho, speaking of tangents..... lol....what I was saying was.... that I found this awesome site called Melanoma Girl. She's got a well-designed website and an uplifting, amazing attitude to boot. Her t-shirt designs are pretty stellar too. You should definitely check it out. Cuz it's "pretty cool!" (see video)
#2- I got an email from Brenda Becker for MelApp and she informed me that there's a new iPhone app called- appropriately enough called MelApp. According to Brenda,
"MelApp is an early detection mobile app that uses the iPhone’s camera coupled with image diagnostics to assess if users’ moles and freckles are low to high risk of melanoma. Highly sophisticated patent protected mathematical algorithms and image-based pattern recognition technology lets MelApp analyze a user’s uploaded image of their mole or freckle, using an image database licensed from Johns Hopkins University Medical Center. Within seconds MelApp will provide a risk analysis of the uploaded picture being a melanoma."
Ok, not the best named idea out there, but I feel like this is pret legit. And so high tech! It's a very sheek looking app, very functional, pretty intuitive design. All in all, I give it a thumbs up. Check it out at www.melapp.net
#3- You have to know about Funnycancershirts.com! Holy shit. Truly great cancer design going on there. Totally seriously!
Great to be back after a full month taking off!
