I could not have predicted that my diet would consist of as many of my own words as it does: I’m forced to eat them constantly. Two weeks ago I laughed about the blogging “echo chamber” that picked up on DoInk: the same two-sentence article bounced from audience-less site to audience-less site. “This is useless”, I said. And yet, with enough reverberation, the story...
Hulu NEEDS Boxee (or someone like them)
I try to play it legit. I purchase my content on iTunes, I watch shows on Hulu, but still I stray into the realm of media piracy. Why? Because I don’t care to own the media, I just want to watch it. This makes iTunes an expensive indulgence. Hulu seems like a reasonable substitute, however I can’t watch that content on my ludicrously expensive home-theatre hardware. How dumb is that?...
Great (& first) high-production video review of DoInk… but I can’t understand a word of it because it’s in Portuguese :) If someone can shed some light in my comments section, you’d make my day for the second time!
Aaron frontpage tribute. by gamagama, made at DoInk.com Cartoon version of me.
Here’s a partial video of me lead flash-ascending Jolt, a 30-meter, 5.10b route at Rumney. Important note on the video: watch closely at the beginning, see the other climber’s straight rope hanging off to the right? THAT is the vertical, this footage was recorded at a near 45 degree angle ;-) (here’s a view from the cliff-base) I can’t completely describe the thrill,...
Finally, *this* is the summer I allow no sunny-day be wasted.
Creating The Frontier - A Look Behind The Scenes by Kondrikthus, made at DoInk.com The DoInk user community is AMAZING. This “Behind the Scenes” was made by Kondrikthus… a 19 year old creative-type, with no previous-to-DoInk-animation experience from what I can tell. And yet, this animation feels like it could easily fit into the extras section of a DVD. Just awesome.
Saturn Comes Back Around
“May you live to 120” - an old, Jewish phrase. I’ve learned a lot from my Grandfather, a man who has worn many hats: father & husband, navy man, cartoonist, businessmen, astrologer, and teacher. During our family’s Passover Seder, we talked about the different phases of life. I told him that this past year was personally transformative; that I actually began to...

giantrobotlasers: msg: Trent Reznor talking to Kevin Rose Trent gets it in a big way; his answers are effortlessly deliberate. Smart, smart guy. (Personal side-note: psyched to be going to the NIN/JA concert this summer)

Bill of Expectations & the Future of Media
What’s the future for all media? Here’s my list of expectations, which I present as irrefutable axioms, followed by a few thoughts. Media content will be consumed digitally. This includes music, movies, news, and books. Any type of media that isn’t consumed digitally will be a toy, a novelty, or a relic. (Future media producers will still produce physical things, but those...
