The Book of Wisdom

September 2, 2009 Leave a comment

Danielle LaPorte posted this delightful video about the making of the book Wisdom. I like it for several reasons. Aesthetically, it appeals to me. But deeper than that I like the spirit of the project. Andrew Zuckerman respects the wide range of people he meets (and we meet in the video).

He values the voices of elders (something so deeply needed in our day). He researches their lives, their thought, their stories. But he is primarily interested in their relationships and their personal lives as opposed to their great accomplishments.

It blessed me, hopefully it will bless you as well.

How to Defeat our Enemies

August 28, 2009 Leave a comment

In our current culture of vindictive speech and hate-spewing on the left and the right, I think this video (via Cory Doctorow) might offer another model for engaging with humor and kindness.

300 frames per second?

Sean Captain over at the Popular Science blog demonstrates a new digital camera prototype from Casio’s Jin Nakayama. Sean writes:

By mating a high-performance CMOS image sensor with a new, lightening-fast processor, the camera can shoot up to 60 (yes, 60) six-megapixel photos per second or—get this—300 video frames per second. That’s National Geographic-style slow-mo video from a consumer camera. Well, if Casio goes ahead and builds a consumer camera. For now, it’s just a science experiment. But the prototype I saw looks pretty darn close to a real product.

Thanks to Pajamas Media for the tip.

Interview with Songbird Founder, Rob Lord

November 2, 2006 Leave a comment

A couple weeks back, I mentioned the developed preview of Songbird(the Firefox of media players). I think this signals another shift toward convergence. For those who are hyped up on this, you may want to read this interview with Rob Lord from the P2P blog.

YouTube Toast?

September 28, 2006 1 comment

Apparently YouTube is getting ready to be sued into oblivion. At least that’s what Mark Cuban believes. According to Reuters,

“There is a reason they haven’t yet gone public, they haven’t sold. It’s because they are going to be toasted,” said Cuban, who has sold start-ups to Yahoo Inc. and CompuServe.

Dang! I was just starting to like YouTube. One minute they’re the fastest growing video sharing site in the world and the next minute they’re a burned up piece of bread from yesterday’s breakfast.

I actually think there’s potential to find a way to keep the irreverent and diverse user-generated content while still making peace with copyright holders and even welcome more commercial entities.

Well here’s hopin’ Cuban is just showboatin’ and the zany world of YouTube keeps growing and shocking.

Itunes Movie Downloads

Business Week reports today that Itunes will soon start downloading feature length films, and Walmart is fighting tooth and nail to hinder it. Looks like we’ve got us an old-fashioned “grudge match.” May the best behemoth win!
