Romania How Low Can You Go?

Elections. Basescu's staff copies the web site of a pro-Antonescu electoral project. Original vs. copy.

This is not politics, nor "strategy," this is stealing — a clear case of intellectual property theft. It's what designers despise most.

Romania Herta Müller speaks

Romanian-German writer Herta Müller describes her ongoing experience of Securitate terror.

Time and again he would throw my identity card on the floor, and I had to bend down and pick it up. Thirty or forty times maybe; when I got slower, he kicked me in the small of my back. And from behind the door at the end of the table I heard a woman's voice screaming.

What can we do? Never forget. Never forgive.

Romania Orange Romania: [no*] Push Notifications

From Orange Romania customer service: iPhone Push Notifications not active in Romanian Orange network, no date set for activation.

Lame.

Update: Push Notifications do work in Orange Romania (see comments). I was wrong, Orange CS representative was wrong and Twitter palls were wrong. What a clusterfuck.

*I'm so glad that I was wrong!

Romania National color theory

For Romanian readers: do you think you know our flag? Wanna bet?

Zzing tackles a tough one: the colors in Romanian flag are not standardized, for this reason no two official flags are the same (links in Romanian).

Read and spread the word.

Romania Disgrace

Brancusi was possibly the most important Romanian artist of all time. Yet both websites—brancusi.com and brancusi.ro—dedicated to him exude bad taste and sheer incompetence. A shame.

Romania More on Romania's draft ID

Two new episodes: three, four [links in Romanian], following the previous two: one, two, regarding Romania's draft ID commissioned to Imagina SRL (imaginastudio.ro) and not developed in-house as the Agency for Governmental Strategies representatives previously reported to a Brandient inquiry.

Embarrassing.

Romania Slang from the hood

Romanian language is not dead, it just smells funny and Urban Pedia, the Romanian slang dictionary, harvested an inventory well above the 2k mark to prove it—lexpionage (lexicon+espionage) at its best, well worth a RSS subscription. And if colloquialism is your thing, don't forget about Dictionar Urban and their definition of the day feed. [links in Romanian]

Romania Romania’s draft ID

Romania's ID — a follow-up. It seems that the infantile identity program was developed in-house by The Agency for Governmental Strategies. Contacted representatives declared that the logo and manuals were posted for public consultations, are drafts and should not be regarded as final. Journalists should look into it and clarify this matter.

Romania A joke, right?

Please tell me that Romania's visual identity is an elaborated practical joke. I try to find the right words here—indignity, humiliation, shame, misfortune, pity, disgrace... shall I continue? Romanian bloggers/designers, please spread the word and protest against this horror.

Romania National unease

Not even 24 hours passed since my previous, optimistic post and the Parliament just voted in favor of elected President's impeachment. Meetings showing support for President Basescu — and against the Parliament — will possibly follow and violent scenarios are not totally far-fetched. Romanian political class proves once again decisively moronic. I feel miserably ashamed.
