DIGITAL CULTURE

I wish I had gone to Web 2.0. There is so much commentary out there about it right now, but here are two things: MP3 of Lessig's Free Culture presentation and MP3 of the media panel with CNet, NYTimes.com, Tivo, etc.

Online Journalism Awards finalists announced. I'll be in L.A. on Nov. 11-14 for the conference.

Query Google by SMS. Girls that I meet at bars are now open game.

CELEBRITY

It's so sad that someone had to come along and make Trump look smart. Mark Cuban is such a moron, as proven with his interview with OJR. I think Jarvis said it best: "I understand why the world pays attention to Paris Hilton. I don't understand why the world pays attention to Mark Cuban." In other news, EW reports that ABC screwed up and revealed the winner of The Benefactor.

Casting call: Bad News Bears remake, starring Billy Bob Thornton and directed by Richard Linklater.

UPDATE: Team America got an R rating.

It's an old story, but it's the first time I saw it: Starbucks and Jim Beam to brew alcoholic coffee concoction.

PUBLISHING

SORTA LOCAL

Whooooaaaaa. First Avenue has been served an eviction summons.
