Andrew Kim does a blog called Minimally Minimal where he discusses various topics such as design, reviews and various hardware, such as (one of my favs) the iPad mini.

Last summer he created a page that outlined a potential new design direction for Microsoft. The design went viral over the web and while Microsoft had other plans for a Windows redesign, they did take notice, because they just hired him to work in the Xbox division.

Always important to remember how level a playing field the internet provides, and how pushing your work out of the nest and towards the general public can often lead to the next big thing in your career.
