The latest “Wise Idea” from the always talented Scott Wise (full disclosure: he’s my cousin, and I hate how talented he is).
This time Wise has put out an album of instrumentals, with unique artwork for each track, all of which is available in his shop as various items (including shirts, hoodies, prints, and iPhone cases). The entire album is streaming for free on his site, or you can fork over $5 (which you should) to own it forever.
And no, he’s not paying me to say this. I just think he’s insanely talented. Stupid jerk.
Somewhere between Silvie’s computer and the Bing servers, something was injecting ads into the data passing through the tubes. Were his parents suffering from some kind of ad-serving malware infection? And if so, what else might the malware be watching—or stealing?
The Windows of New York project is a weekly illustrated fix for an obsession that has increasingly grown in me since chance put me in this town. A product of countless steps of journey through the city streets, this is a collection of windows that somehow have caught my restless eye out from the never-ending buzz of the city. This project is part an ode to architecture and part a self-challenge to never stop looking up.
I am a Graphic Designer living in New York City. I’m into all kinds of visual things, sharing good stuff with great people, and apparently, staring creepily at windows.
I finally got around to contributing my first Songza playlist: a collection of tracks heard as underscore on the greatest public radio show of all time, This American Life.
There’s over 6 hours of stuff in here, some songs listeners will recognize almost immediately. Others may be less familiar, and will hopefully introduce you to some great new artists. Best of all in some cases you may finally find out the name of your favourite piece of music you’ve heard a thousand times.
I’ll be doing my best to keep it updated whenever I discover a new track (I’ve already added 3 today that I came across while listening to re-runs) so be sure to stay tuned. And if you want a little more control (but sadly a few less tracks) be sure to check out my Rdio playlist as well.
One of the largest illegal downloading cases Canada has seen returns to court Monday, but there may be no one there to represent the interests of hundreds whose identities could be revealed to a movie company looking to sue them for sharing its files.
There are three reasons for this: the individuals are not yet known to the court, a public interest group has no status to intervene or contest the evidence and the Internet service provider (ISP) in the case has no plans to challenge the film studio’s motion material as others have in the past.
The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic has filed a motion to intervene in the case — filed by Los Angeles, Calif.-based film studio Voltage Pictures LLC against hundreds of as-yet unknown Canadian defendants — but that seems unlikely to be granted before Monday’s court date.
Wow. As a TekSavvy customer I must admit this is a bit chilling. The worst part? All these people did was download a shitty Steven Segal movie.
Still though, I understand where TekSavvy is coming from, but as Howard Knopf states near the end of the article,
“It’s simply not right for anyone to assume that protecting privacy in any way amounts to endorsing piracy,” Mr. Knopf said. “They’re just completely separate issues.”
You would think in an age where it’s so easy to get your music for free (read: pirate) that you’d want to applaud and reward those who actually paid for their music and give them what they paid for. Evidently, Sony feels differently…
