Digital Highlight of 2013? Well for me it has to be 24 Hours of Happy. It’s a simple idea and it could only be executed on digital platforms.  There is sharing built in but its not done in a blocking or needy way. Also people love to share a sweet moment when they have spent 20 minutes ‘lost’ in the whole experience.  Importantly there is no technology on display - its there in the background - but not the star of the show. Also I don’t know anyone that’s seen it and not smiled.
Arcade Fire and Google’s latest experiment ‘Just a Reflektor' comes a close second. But falls slightly, as a lot of it feels like tech for tech's sake and doesn't always add anything over the already incredible video material. That said it's human nature to want to tap/sing/interact along with music and the ability to 'play' with a video like an interactive visualiser is very appealing. 
What were your digital highlights of 2013?

so yesterday while idyllically setting up the xmas tree with the family …

I turned on the xbox one to add a christmas sound track, I entered now, and 
it magically guessed i wanted ‘now thats what i call christmas’ 
so I selected that 
and 
BOOM
CUNT in massive letters on the screen
Queue frantic pressing of the (B) button - I took the vine of the offending search when they went to bed.
but BLOODY hell is there no curration? 
I tweeted that vine which now has been retweeted to over 300000 people, not to mention picked up by verge.
any response from microsoft? removal of the item (or at least cleaning up of the album art/text) 
nope.
Now don’t get me wrong I’ve no issue with the C word - just not when its being linked to G rated content. It’s still behaving identically now. you get similar results on the phone and desktop versions of xbox music. 
you can decide for yourself which C word is more offensive :)
UPDATE:
Microsoft said i have to change my account to be a child’s one to avoid this result. no apology, no desire to change the content.
I found out you get a similar though not quite as ‘in your face’ result on the Google Play Music Store - There is a call back customer service line for Google who said they would deal with the offending artwork/descriptions.  Top marks Google.
iTunes Music Store and UK Amazon MP3 stores all return appropriate content.

I’ve always loved walking to work, you get a real ‘sense’ of a place in that time between 8:30/9:30.  There’s a beat, a tempo to the people and building and a shadow of the night before that’s not quite faded as it prepares for the day ahead.
