[teh glorious interweb what got stuck in my :flash: camino tabs this past week]
online video killed …
:flash: Broadcast Yourself. – This is a collaboration between the WEF and youtube. people are asked to submit video messages, the best ones will get shown at next WEF. i react to this with a mixture between exitement and outrage. they think they can buy us that easy? plus: the question they pose reminds me of a Miss Switzerland election. “What one thing do you think that countries, companies or individuals must do to make the world a better place in 2008?”.
:flash: The End of the World – gw bush covers REMs “its the end of the world as we know it”. brilliant. [via bb]
:flash: “Free” – “a video of Wired editor Chris Anderson discussing the ideas in his upcoming book, called Free.”
:flash: Free is a risky transition – “Consumers are pushing the creative industries towards a free model, forcing a reinvention of monetization, a crucial element of the chain that “professional” artists obviously need.”
online flash games
:flash: Chain Factor – very simple yet addictive online flash game.
:flash: Flickr Memory Game – create a memory game form your flickr sets.
schmooze and abuze
:flash: Burglar vocabulary: location-based tagging – “local police … told us that burglars use codes to annotate house. It’s generally tags like this, with black chalk that express relevant information for them such as the one exemplified below”.
:flash: RIP Borat And Ali G – “Sacha Baron Cohen is retiring the outrageously anti-Semitic, homophobic Kazakh journalist Borat as well as his alter ego, aspiring rapper Ali G.” cry! can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
:flash: Scissors is the ‘psychological winner’ out of rock and paper in playground game – “Now stalwart players have come up with a strategy: Start with scissors.” erm, the scientists who study this … ???
:flash: UNICEF Photo of the Year 2007s – “Our men don’t want educated women.” oh my.
:flash: Africa Wages War On Plastic Bags – “Motivated by a climate of widespread environmental devastation, Africa has boldly moved to initiate a continent-wide ban plastic bags in an effort to eliminate the billions of throw-away sacs that are marring its cities and landscapes”. plastic to africa: get off my case.
:flash: tschüss mike shiva, tschüss U1 TV – “U1 TV wird von der Cablecom diesen Freitag aus dem Netz geschmissen. Das ist echt schade: Jetzt kann ich nie mehr Mike Shiva gucken.” fuck!
