Bluggcaster in Podcasting Hacks book!
Tuesday, March 28, 2006
This made me laugh off my chair. The crims realised they could escape our gallant, skate-booted Royal Parks police patrol by...
wait for it...
going onto the grass.
I like this idea. A lot. An Ozzie has developed software that translates voice waves into spirals - a bit like the windows media player thingy. But he has printed these patterns onto fabric. Et voila. This could be a whole new arena of fun for podcasters. Imagine a Bluggcast bedspread! Via Make Magazine

This is interesting. Not sure I believe it is necessarily something someone recorded on the day that John Lennon was shot, or whether someone has stitched the bits together to make it sound like a radio dial scan.
Interesting listening nonetheless.
Where does this kind of recording sit in terms of copyright? would it be fair to play it on a podcast for critical comment without getting permission? That counts as fair use, no?

I am a dunce
The next item to part company with me was my favourite dove necklace from Seattle. I was dancing.
Then I lost my purse/wallet. Cards in it. Lost? Or stolen. Either way it was all my fault for being a bloody dunce.

These are the most excellent cakes I have ever seen. I can't even make pancakes.

Boing Boing: New antisocial network isolatr.com launches
This is class. Just what I have been looking for. Via Boing Boing.
I think I might be developing an addiction to Google Video. Just been checking out all the UFO videos. I had never see the pre-911 one before. Hmm. Anyway, am now currently obsessed with the kitten ones. Check out this one of the laziest and Not Bovered feline I have ever seen.

"Multiverse is an actual record label that exists in a virtual (really virtual) space, that carries the same responsibilities as a brick-and-mortar label. I/We have acquired the assets and holdings of the label, including infrastructure and wonderful open source technologies, as well as some very talented artists. Together, we just won't get the word on artists, get them paid, but also, we will prototype the record label for tomorrow and fix what's broken by starting from scratch."

1. Did you get that free in a newspaper?
2. I love bags. Prada and all that.
3. Your label's up.
4. Let me show you how love can be between a man and a young lady with large breasts.
5. I want to stab him in the eye.
6. My arms feel radioactive, you know? They feel like they're throbbing and glowing in the dark.
7. I'm having a cheese flavoured moment.
8. Just shove everything in a blender. It will taste like shit but it's probably good for you.
9. Don't trust Dave. He's too emotional at the moment.
10. What? It's a song about Iron Man?
*"We all eavesdrop on the tube. (Except if plugged into walkman/Ipod/mother) The following are quotes I have overheard. Are they real? Or are they just the feverish imaginings of a diseased mind? It's up to you to decide..." - themanwhofellasleep.
So there I was looking on Google images for some snaps of the Microsoft Origami machine that was unveiled today at another tech fest, the Cebit trade show in Germany, and I found these real origami delights. Just look at them!
I would love to know how much of a surge in traffic origami sites across the web got after the MS rumours first came out a couple of weeks ago. Check out the official origami site.
Now I am hooked.

Now this is interesting. This guy, William S. Burroughs, was the ultimate masher upper, says David Pescovitz on Boing Boing.
That was his style - he was responsible for Naked Lunch don't you know. (I didn't until I looked up Wikipedia). The New York Public Library has just bought up his archive of 11,000 pages of writings (published and unpublished), correspondence, collages, diaries, notebooks, photographs, and 50 hours of unreleased tape recordings.
It is intended it to be "read and absorbed as a work of art" apparently. So let's see what the Library lets the Public do with it.

Now I like this kind of interface. The clever bods at Microsoft Research have developed a prototype interface to email. They are showing it off at Etech, a conference I would give up chocolate to go to.
The interface is based on the Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) game. You step on pads to control what is going on on your screen.
I covered the Europe DDR tournament in London a couple of years ago. Such a variety of DDR gamers. Amazing. The 12 year old blonde Apple Pie kid from Norway was a true champion.
