Earlier today, Justin Timberlake tweeted a link to this teaser of the New MySpace to his 13+ million followers. The site, now been acquired by Specific Media for 15 months and partially owned by JT himself, gets a complete makeover and the aesthetics and user flow seem to take inspiration from two other social networks – Facebook and Tumblr. Users will be able to login via Facebook or Twitter with the option to bring photos or other information with them so you don’t need to build from unless you want to. Status updates look similar to the mobile app Path, with photos largely displayed and user comments showing up underneath. There’s also a music component which allows you to browse albums, find popular songs and artists and more. Want access? Get in line at new.myspace.com.

Enzo Ferrari Birthplace Museum

Enzo Ferrari Birthplace Museum in Modena, Italy

Enzo Ferrari was born in Modena, Italy, a small city between Milan and Bolgna. The automaker that Enzo built and its racing team are based in Maranello but Fondazione Casa Natale Enzo Ferrari have acquired the Modena home that Enzo grew up in via a long term lease and have turned it into a museum dedicated to the legendary industrialist and racer. Enzo sold the home at the age of 22 to buy a racecar and failed several times to buy the house back afterwards. The museum features this house where Ferrari was born in 1898 as well as a new building designed with a shiny yellow aluminum roof as well as the attached workshop of Ferrari’s father, a carpenter and mechanic for the Italian railway.

Design work for The Enzo Ferrari Birthplace Museum was done by Czech architect Jan Kaplicky and completed after his death by his protege Andrea Morgante. It also incorporates an art exhibit, a multimedia experience, a rotating display of Ferrari road and race cars borrowed from independent collectors, and a collection of Enzo’s own artifacts. There are also education and conference centers, a book shop, cafeteria and the offices of the foundation itself.
