Exercise = subway ticket

To promote exercise and the 2014 Olympics, a very special ticket machine has been installed at the Moscow subway station.

Instead of accepting money as payment, the high-tech ticket machine only accepted exercise. Riders could receive a free ticket by standing in front of the machine’s camera, and performing 30 squats. The idea is to get people active and amped for the games.

If you could do a little bit of exercise in exchange for a train ticket, would you?

Spare Ticket event connection site launches in 12 days!


There’s 12 days to go until Australia’s first event connection site is launched and the Brio kids seriously can not wait! With the huge amount of festivals, concerts and cricket coming up this summer (and the huge amount of people I know on Facebook trying to flog spare tickets) this site couldn’t come soon enough! As I’m no journo I thought I’d let Kaya Strehler’s fabulous write up from Cream Magazine do the talking for me…

“How lame is it when an event is sold out, so you head to eBay and of course some annoying freak is sitting at home charging ludicrous prices for said event. Well freaks no more! SpareTicket.com.au is the cyber savior love child of eBay and Facebook, offering members the ability to list tickets to concerts, theatre, festivals, sports events, fashion shows, special film screenings, whatever, but the kicker is that if the ticket holder doesn’t want to actually sell his or her ticket, they can offer a challenge as opposed to a price, for example “I’ll give you this ticket is you drive me to the venue” or “You can have this ticket if you mow my lawn“. We love it already.

The site only supports tickets that are at cost or below (depends on how much you value your mowing skills) so inflated prices will be history and the social networking factor is an added perk allowing you to mingle with like-minded event goers.”
