We all create for one another. And our creations assume a life of their own.

Comments Off on Wikimedia

On a lark, I typed the URL Wikimedia into my browser. Did I find the multimedia equivalent of Wikipedia? No, nor did I expect to. But I did sort of hope to find at least a skeleton of that beast, awaiting some flesh. So what did I find? The homepage for the Wikimedia foundation, Wikipedia’s […]

Comments Off on Wired guy pulls the plug

My brother has shared an interesting article in Wired with me. A crazy Wired reporter agrees to cancel his cable subscription. No, he doesn’t replace it with Satellite. He goes with the Internet — Broadband, baby. Take a look here. The reporters treats the experience like a big social experiment. It’s an interesting read, but […]

Comments Off on CBS Records

CBS is reviving its record label. This is an interesting story. (Parenthetical: it’s funny I chose “reviving” as the word to contain the link to the story. Is there a correct grammatical usage for linking? Should I have used a noun?) CBS will market the label purely as a digital distribution medium. It sounds like […]

Comments Off on Congdon, day 2

No video on ABCNews from Amanda Congdon??? Okay, this is annoying. Rocketboom has a new entry each and every weekday. When’s the next Amanda? It’s dumb enough to have to click around to play the video, rather than the simple elegance of Rockboom, which plays automatically. Rocketboom 1ABCAmanda 0 Another update for y’all. I still […]

Comments Off on Amanda Congdon Debuts on ABC NEWS

She’s baaaack. Sorry, a cliche just felt right there. Amanda Congdon’s officially back in a Rocketboomsian yet mainstream segment. It has the feel of Rocketboom . . . with some interesting differences. There’s a 30 second pre-roll ad . . . and a post-roll ad and a looping post-roll Amanda blurb followed by, you […]

Comments Off on 2007

If 2006 was all about Web 2.0 and the resurgence of the dot-com boom, 2007 should represent the payoff, with many of the 2006 start-ups going-to-market. Certainly, many of these products will focus on chasing online digital media revenue. So the question for the day is, who chases best? The deck chairs are being reshuffled […]

Have y’all checked out the TED site? Click on What Is TED -> About TED -> Highlights and go to town with all the great video. Don’t miss Levitt — even though I’d read the story he tells in “Freakonomics“, I still laughed heartily at his punchline. Dean Kamen provides a simple and extraordinarily succinct […]
