While you were wondering if the Colorado Rockies were ever going to lose another game ever, here’s what we were looking at:
- The YouTube Result: Democratizing Reporting – One of the many disruptive results of YouTube has been the rise of the citizen-journalist-vlogger, in this case Talking Points Memo’s new daily videocast, TPMtv.
- The Medialoper Review of Spiral Frog – At this point, I’ve pretty much run out of things to say about it. Let’s promise not to speak of it anymore.
- How Amazon’s MP3 Store Will Challenge iTunes, and Why Steve Jobs Doesn’t Care – The Amazon store could be one of those rarities: a win for all involved. Including the consumer.
- O’Reilly Seeks Proposals for Second Annual TOC Conference – Get cracking on yours today!
- The Gingrich Who Stole Second Life – Remember what Wired said all of those years ago: “Friend AND Foe.”
- Radiohead OKs Computers – After wading through the unintuitive mid-1990s jungle of the In Rainbows website, I finally figured out how to pre-order my downloads. It remains to be seen if, on Tuesday, I’ll be able to get the songs.
- Doomed But Loved: Friday Night Lights – Sigh. After all of that, they have to hit us with the shark-approach of the newest twist in the Tyra/Landry storyline, which is the worst thing to happen to a show I love since the newly-minted-possibly-retcon Cylons on Battlestar started quoting Bob Dylan.
- Ode To A Simpler Time – Kassia likes Mad Men, the little-watched show on AMC that will probably go down the best TV show to debut this year.
