Cory Doctorow talking about copyright. Not watched it yet but will when I have time. So, yeah I might never see it.
Bright Eyes. You instantly humming the Watership Down theme ? I heard lots of hype about this boy and got the latest two albums from this guy. I liked ” I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” which was very folky and had a great intro with him telling an unusual story. The other album “Digital Ash in a Digital Urn” is very electronica; I wasn’t too gone on it. I’m certainly not going to dismiss this youngfella though so might get some previous albums. I heard he excels live. The cool thing is he co-founded his record company – Saddle Creek and he’s keeping his own in the American charts against billion dollar behemoths.
McNipple – fucked up art from Casey Weldon. yes, of course I liked it.
Imeem – complex social networking tool. Hmmm, this looks really interesting but until everyone had broadband I don’t know whether it will work efficiently. From what I gather it’s like taking your MSN list and giving them access to secure places for discussion and for sharing and working on files. It’s a good idea and one we’ll see more of I would think.
Yahoo has brought out YQ Contextual Search. I still need to try this out to see what the fuss is about. I’m not too clear how it’ll work. Fair play to them though as they have a firefox plugin for it. Someone else has implemented it on their website so that if you do a web search it’ll search using the themes on your site. Er, I think.
The new Volkswagen Singing in the Rain ad. The dancer in it is a guy called David Bernal and he’s quite the talented performer. You can see his evolution from when he popped up at a show, and melted in front of the crowd blowing his competitors away. A few years later he returned with more skills and now we see him in the VW Ad. First I thought the video was edited as if he was filmed backwards, but after seeing his abilities I’m not so certain now.
Using BitTorrent in case your blog is very high-traffic. Wasn’t this one of the ideas for podcasting too ?
