While you were busy adding new Facebook applications, here’s what we were looking at:
- Where Some See Lemons: More On The Writers Guild Strike – As new media changes the overall current of how money flows, writers and other creatives can use it to create their own productions outside of traditional studio control.
- Six Unanticipated Consequences Of The Writers Strike – Are you missing your fix of The Daily Show yet? How about The Colbert Report? Or the other late night shows? Just curious.
- MLB and DRM: A Match Made in Hell – Even if he had nothing absolutely to do with this, I blame Bud Selig. Imagine how popular Baseball would be right now if we’d had a good commissioner for the past decade.
- Making Us All That Much More Stupid: Bad Movie Night at The Dark Room – What happens when a bunch of smart film-lovers take the MST3K concept and apply it to a live audience showing? Find out.
- Gearing Up for TOC 2008 – The O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing Conference for 2008 is sooner than you think.
- 360 Deals: The Musical Merry-Go-Round – The music industry finds newer and deeper ways to screw up-and-coming artists who are willing to gamble on losing their long-term viability for some short-term success. Unless, of course, I’m wrong and Paramore is the biggest band of 2012.
- Writers Strike Deathwatch: The Office – This is just the first of our favorite Primetime shows to be affected by the WGA Strike. Unfortunately, it probably won’t be the last. Oh, and hey NBC? I’ve seen the first three episodes of quarterlife. It’s not your savior.
- Music Executive Makes Startling Deathbed Confession: “We Were Wrong” – Gee, ya think?
- Reasons To Be Thankful 2007 – Strangely enough, none of them have anything to do with either technology or pop culture. How shallow.
