goodbye, wikitorial, we hardly knew ya

ONLINE MEDIA

The L.A. Times has pulled down Wikitorial (announced here and touted and denounced in many places).

MSN is hiring bloggers.

In the past, you needed a RealOne subscription to watch video on CNN.com. Starting today, you no longer do.

MSNBC.com teases its redesign.

I have been ignoring the debate about whether Google is a media company (such absolutist categorical thinking -- similar to "are bloggers journalists?" -- bores me), but here's NYT mentioning it in their "What's Online" column, which is clearly struggling at this point.

MUSIC VIDS

Forget those wannabes, here's the real deal: Nancy Sinatra's "The Boots Were Made For Walking" (1966).

TECH

Microsoft is developing a BitTorrent alternative.

I have no idea why everyone is surprised that Google is developing a PayPal rival. The second that Google Video was announced, it was an obvious step (and Google Print will likely be next).

YouTube. It appears to be Flickr for video... and I think it's new. At the same time, Vimeo has moved out of beta.

SHOES & TEES

Custom M.I.A. Reeboks.

Gimme.

WORDS

Dave Eggers issues a "small correction" on Neal Pollack's strange essay in NYTBR.

AUDIO

Steve Jobs' Stanford Commencement Speach.

Sexy podcasts.

MUSIC

The Onion A.V. Club presents this mixlist of highlights from moments when gaming and music collide.
