Marc Canter asks simply “whatever happened to prior art?”
PC Magazine picked Make Magazine’s blog for its 2006 amazing sites. If you haven’t been following the Make Blog lately, you should, cause they’ve been showing how to make the most amazing Halloween stuff.
Speaking of Halloween stuff, the Zillow blog highlights a fun blog that claims to have the best neighborhood in Seattle to go trick or treating in.
We did a Lunch Meeting today (LunchMeet is Eddie Codel and Irina Slutsky‘s new show). We’ll do one a week for now (on Thursdays) to build our process. In November we’ll try to go more — want to make sure we can keep up with the encoding, editing, and publishing. We filmed this today during lunch. In the background you might see Om Malik, Tony Conrad, or Matt Mullenweg walking around. We filmed it in True Ventures offices on Pier 38.
Anyway, while I ran camera Wetpaint‘s CEO, Ben Elowitz, demonstrated this hot new
wiki user-editable service. Pretty cool stuff!
The traffic noise is due to filming right next to the Embarcadero with light rail and busses rolling by. We’ll work on that next. Always something to improve in the land of Internet video.
Irina and Eddie do another show, called Geek Entertainment TV, where they have snarky fun with lots of geeks (yesterday they had Mark Cuban on).
If you wanna have your cool company over for lunch, drop a line here in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cause of crap like this. Can you tell I don’t have TV? I’m missing the baseball playoffs. Sigh. But, I can’t stop watching this video, either. I wonder if these kids are gonna regret this when they are 40 years old.
Engadget is reporting that Sony says that my Xbox 360 “requires” an HD-DVD and a few other things. Really? I didn’t know I had to have one of those just to play high definition video games. My Xbox seems to work just fine without all the extra goodies.
Now, what they should have said is “Sony requires all that.” Engadget calls it right.
I’ve grown fond of the Podonomics blog, done by Leesa Barnes, lately now that I’m reading feeds again (and sharing my favorite items with you, thanks to Google Reader).
Anyway, tonight she wrote about Starbucks and how boring its podcast was (and why it was boring and how to fix it). Good lessons for corporate types if they want to get into podcasting.
Over on the ScobleShow today is Roman Scharf, CEO of Jajah which is a new service that lets you use your regular old phone to make free phone calls around the world (or low cost ones, at least). Pretty interesting business model. Oh, and during the demo we make a call to Guy Kawasaki, who is the first technology evangelist (he got developers to support the first Macintosh).
