cell phone videos

MUSIC

Panopticist has the first music video shot entirely using cell phones, from the Presidents of the United States of America.

New Boards of Canada out today.

TV

NYT Mag: Chuck watches too much tv.

Don't have Current.TV but you'd like to see that Google Current thing? Then Google "Google Current" on Google Video.

ONLINE

IMDB is 15 years old.

Fortune has a long profile of BitTorrent.

You know about this already, but I need to put it here for the archives: Yahoo Podcasts.

SEARCH

New blog search engine: Sphere.com.

New news search engine: Inform.com.

NEW BLOGS

Business Week has a new blog on media and advertising: Fine On Media.

Regina Lynn (the sex columnist at Wired News) has a blog.

Blogebrity relaunched.

PUBLISHING

The American Society of Magazine Editors chooses the top 40 covers of the past 40 years. Nice.

Congrats to Elizabeth on the book deal. Last week's Gawker drama was just too much.

TECH

NYT Mag's life hackers story does a good job of getting its arms around a complex topic, but I gotta believe that so much of this is still sci fi.

Time assembles a bunch of smart people to talk about technology.

Actually, I think it was you that first posted the link to Fredo's "Sad Song," which I'm pretty sure was filmed entirely with cell phones. Oops. Glad I doublechecked. Fredo used "15 second jpg movies from my little Nikon Coolpix 775 still camera," which made it look a lot like a phone video.

wow cohen has asperger's syndrome. it's amazing how all these people we remembered as nerds or just interpersonally odd are now identified with some sort of disorder. it does my heart good to see technology being the vehicle for success for someone who might otherwise be totally marginalized. very cool.
