Archive for January, 2007
Both of these things will expire soon:
1) You’ve got a month to check out the Harvard Business Review’s list of breakthrough ideas for 2007 before it goes into the paid archive. Full of counterintuitive goodness, although the articles are of uneven quality. All-in-all, provocative.
2) Copy, Right? has posted a mammoth dump of cover songs, including a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Good Enough,” from The Goonies. I loved that song because it sounded obnoxiously good as the MIDI track to the NES game Goonies II. I actually remember Goonies II being a surprisingly creepy and atmospheric game; it had these maze sequences scored by a brooding arpeggio that just freaked me out.
So there is this film noir festival going on this weekend in San Francisco, which seems like a totally awesome thing to check out, except that I have never heard of any of the movies.
So… help me out here. Take a look at the program and let me know if anything rings a bell — or just looks interesting. I can’t see any of the Friday movies, but Saturday and Sunday are both fair game.
A new site called FORA is aggregating smarty-pants lectures and talks from the likes of C-SPAN, the Long Now Foundation, New America, various World Affairs Councils — you get the idea.
Expect bad suits… bad hair… bad lighting…
AND AWESOME IDEAS.
This is so dope.
P.S. Except that it’s kinda hard to link to videos and the pop-up player is lame-o. And they have no RSS feeds. Give them time.
Yo, I’m back in action over at the Current blog. I’m going to post every Monday — probably something web-nerd-related.
I actually think the question I pose at the bottom of the post is a pretty good one.
