Today’s links of interest:
- Webby Awards
Uh, yeah, just because we’re full service around here.
- The Perfect News Site, 2016
The Wall Street Journal looks to the future — but asks readers instead of focus groups. Targeted news, more flexiblity, and better looking anchors. Or something like that.
- Finale wrap-up: "Veronica Mars"
SPOILERS! Best show on the trad networks has an absolutely heart-wrenching and gut-churning finale. C’mon CW the network, do the right thing!!
- Inside Mexico’s bootleg market
The economics of piracy should be studied by the studios. Hmm, maybe a required class.
- Da Vinci Code soundtrack ‘too tense’ for children
Noted without comment.
- Take a number, pal
Old friend, new friend…who is number one? Worse, who isn’t on the list at all?
- On the Cell, MySpace Is Crammed but Livable
We do not necessarily condone this sort of language, but apparently MySpace is "featured" on two new cell phones. Which sort of makes one wonder if cell phone makers understand the concept called "browser".
- The Small Screen
Turns out that staying in and watching television on Fridays nights is all the rage. Or at least until people realize they’re staying in and watching television on Friday nights.
- Microsoft: Let’s Make More Deals
Could Microsoft buy Time Warner? Or maybe the question is: is Time Warner ready to switch to another brand? Can they survive life as MSTW?
- Battlestar Galacticsimpsons
This would have been so much a better show than Futurama!!
