The OC Register on Corporate Podcasting

Thursday, September 15th, 2005

Jan Norman of the OC Register wrote a quick piece on how corporations are experimenting and using podcasting as an alternative marketing medium. The story mostly focuses on the Disney podcasts that I worked on with Michael Geoghegan, and also mentions the Pontiac podcast from this past June. You can link to a non-registration […]

This is a nifty little script for folks who want to display specific images from various Flickr feeds. Its definitely an alternative to the regular Flickr badge that most people use.

Been Traveling

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

I am coming off of a blog hiatus of sorts…. its been a while. I just returned from a trip out to Minneapolis, MN. We had a great time visiting my wife’s family and had a chance to enjoy some good times with the crew. One particular activity that I highly recommend to anyone visiting […]

High Zero Music Festival

Wednesday, September 7th, 2005

My colleague John, aided by the efforts of many others, is putting on the 7th annual High Zero music festival here in Balitmore this month. An amazing event centered around “freely improvised experimental music.”

Music Festival In Your Head

Monday, September 5th, 2005

I came across a really cool post on Wired’s feed this morning. It’s almost a week old, because for some reason Wired is a feed I let “accumluate” content before checking it out. This morning I read about the Plug music festival that took place in San Fransisco last week, a BYO headphone musical event […]

Modern Rules of Advertising

Good post on the BBC, about writer John Camm’s frusteration with advertising cliche’s. He has come up with a list of “seemingly unwritten rules which, he concludes, might as well be the Advertising Bible.” The BBC allows readers to add to that list as well at the footer of the article, check it […]

Print Media, Ad Agencies & Google

Saturday, September 3rd, 2005

Google isn’t a media company… yet. But I have to admit, I have always said that Google is headed in that direction. It never will look like a media company by todays standards, that I know. However, there is rapid evolution in their model, and sometimes those evolutions get them pretty close to the media […]

Thursday, September 1st, 2005

Interesting read this am on Tim Yang’s blog, where he points to a recent survey that uncovered that an estimated 42% of blogspot content is pure spam or “splogs” or in the case of blogspot, “splots.” That has to make you weary! Phillip Lennsen conducted a random survey, initially of 50 blogspot blogs that […]
