While watching a recent episode of Jon Stewart – Jon was interviewing Jerry Seinfeld. The interview wasn’t a question-answer type process, it was more of a free flowing conversation.. one thing Jerry says is how unattractive the word “blog” is. I have to say, I agree, the word does sound like something you would spit up or something you could say instead of the word puke: “I just ate jello and it made me blog all over the carpet!”.
There are so many things I find on the internet and none is more interesting or time consuming than looking at pictures other people have taken. Many of these pictures are on flickr.com – not to mention blogs where people are dedicated to the hobby of picture taking. Others, like the link I’m going to give you make collections of cool pictures – this is one i came across that i thought was cool. Check it out here
Honesty, let’s talk about this for a moment. These last few days have been interesting in this regard for me. I’m not a perfect beacon of honesty for sure – I do try, however, to be as honest as I can in situations. Let me give you three things that happened to me over the last week, I’m amazed how this stuff tends to happen in batches – and then it never happens for long periods of time.
I have never heard of Asa (pronounced Asha) before today, but I frequent a website called Aurgasm.com where they offer songs from bands that are obscure and have not been heard of. Asa is an R&B singer that almost seems a little bit like she could sing Reggae. The lyrics are awesome, the sound is great. Check it out here.
In a move that I think is going to be analyzed to death over the next little while – Jon Stewart’s Comedy Central show is now completely online at thedailyshow.com. This is without a doubt the best example of a company “getting it” with regards to new media. The online database of clips (said to number in the range of 13,000) is fully indexed and streams very reliably.
I just checked out a trailer for a new movie called “Untraceable”. The movie follows a CyberCrime investigator as she tries to solve a case based on an untraceable website. What I love/hate about these technology-type movies is how they use technology and possibly fear of it as a means of creating tension. The problem with most of them though is how wrong they get it. There is a scene in the trailer where the bad guy is in her car’s back seat, but he had to “Hack into her car’s computer” first to shut it down… haha… he’s such a geek..
I must have heard about this on the radio, or maybe I read it on the Internet somewhere – there is a movement of sorts, spearheaded by no-www.org to get people and webmasters to drop the leading “www.” in websites. When you think of it, it does seem kind of pointless to use www. nowadays. Why do we type those three letters anyway?
It’s an answer we all know, heck, we’re all probably drinking a Tim Horton’s coffee right now :) I wonder if you ever stopped to give it a thought to how the simplest of decisions can define you?
I was intrigued to find that a new version of Windows PE had been released and it was labeled as 2.0 or “the Vista version” if you will. One of the biggest enhancements that I could see was the hot plugging of USB devices… so I went looking for it..
