Meet 5-year old Joey, the Junior Reporter for the Chicago Blackhawks. He asks the tough hitting questions like “How much do you get from the Tooth Fairy?” and “Who’s the biggest turkey on the team?” This cute little bugger is better than most of the reporters covering the NHL and he’s just a half century...
You have to hand it to news aggregator Digg.com. The site is making solid attempts at bringing community back by introducing new features on the site’s front page. The efforts are commendable, but Digg has to be careful it doesn’t trip over its own feet. In the past several days, engineers at Digg rolled out...
wikileak say no evil
Courage to Resist, the support group set up for raising funds in support of U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning (the man behind a large number of the recent WikiLeaks documents), has been closed down. “We’ve been in discussions with PayPal for weeks, and by their own admission there’s no legal obligation for them to close...
Kevin Smith has always been on the somewhat forefront of social media and advertising. I’m not sure that’s the best way to put it…more like he uses unconventional means to get his message across. I’m sure you all remember the whole Southwest debacle that he took to Twitter and his blog. And if you haven’t...
I’m sure you remember the whole Zach Anner/Oprah debacle. Well he recently got to sit down again with her on her new show and channel. The interview begins with Oprah asking him a few questions but towards the end, he flips the switch and digs into her a little. I love the look on her...
steve jobs first time on TV
The man behind the success of Apple has certainly come a long way since his first apperance on TV. Though he rarely appears on TV in such interviews now-a-days his presentations for new products are much more polished then this is. The difference in his nerves and excitement show how much he’s changed his approach....
There is a lot of hype and hubbub surrounding IBM’s Watson computer competing on Jeopardy! against two of the best contestants ever, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. It’s quite an interesting idea and it will be fun to see how it spans out in the end. Will computer be able to beat human? Are electronics...
It’s very easy to develop a man crush on the best American reporter in the Middle East. Richard Engel is nice, polite and has written two books. He’s also been churning out some of the best reporting on the Egypt revolution (and the soon to come other revolutions) this side of Al-Jazeera. His Wikipedia page...
phantom of the floppera
Check out this awesome video of what happens when a true geek, and musical fan, gets bored. People have made floppy drives sing before, but this is my personal take on it. Features two 3 1/2″ drives and two 5 1/4″ drives connected to a PIC18f14k50 microcontroller. It interfaces to any MIDI source via MIDI...
For those of us who live in the developed world, internet access has become pretty much a given. It’s become so ubiquitous that we almost expect to have it at all times and in all places, but even in this “Information Age,” the majority of the world’s population lacks access to the internet – either...
