The art of the mashup deconstructed by 21C Magazine (aka Wired Hardcore)
Uploadphonix works on a different kind of economy, it's an exchange of creativity using the language that the media won't let us escape, the pop song. It takes out the top 40 overkill and gives a song an aura again, the bootleg becomes a hard to find, an underground rarity that oscillates between art and kitsch, an "avant pop" as Mark Amerika calls it.

Berlingeren har oprustet deres erhvervssite(grimt ord) og her kan man bl.a læse at Orange-Monique nu forlader vores lille, tabsgivende land. [Update 01.10: Monique bliver i Danmark siger Orange.]

Right now the conventional wisdom is that Wi-Fi will make the 3G networks obsolete. Maaaybe that's a bit premature, but here is a good article on the subject.
The way these hot spots are popping up around the world is downright viral. “802.11 is a disruptive technology,” says Sam May, analyst at USBancorp PiperJaffrey. “Get on the train, or get hit by the train.”

Bert Tusekov, that's me. Yeah, got this direct mail from lovely Amberley Castle today [enjoy the MIDI soundtrack on their site]. Big round of applause to Mr. Postman for actually getting this letter through. But I guess he's used to it; Tvisgaard, Quistgaard, Tvistskov and about 100 other variations...

Never underestimate the power of Morgen-TV™... Næsten 130 timer tilsammen brugte gæsterne på tveskov.com igår, noget nær en fordobling. Det så ikke ud som Mr. Meyerheim var 100% med på hvad det dersens weblogging gik ud på, men det var han nok ikke ene om.

Not-so favorable review of the LEGO Galidor KEK Powerizer from USA Today;
Its arms fall off, it has a banal computer game in the back and you have to watch television for it to fully interact. Could this possibly be Lego?
Sadly, yes. Lego's new Galidor line -- its first foray into the action figure market -- is a terrible disappointment. To us grown-ups, that is.

It looks like a autonomous red toiletseat, or something out af an old sci-fi movie. But it's not, it is the Trilobite Nice website, shame about the price (12.000 kr.). I want one, when they do a version that negotiates stairs.

Metrostar hedder nu Organic og deres velskrevne websted fortæller at planen er at have 500 Wi-Fi lokationer her i fædrelandet om 18 måneder. Selvom organicnetwork.com er til salg for sølle 288 dollars, virker det fornuftigt at holde solid dansk fokus. Wi-Fi til folket! Held og lykke med projektet!

My journalist hero Steven Levy quotes Rebecca Blood on his "A blog about writing about blogs":
She thinks that bloggers take themselves too seriously. She has her own little taxonomy of blogs, breaking them out into Filters, which are mostly links to various items discovered on the Web; Blogs, characterized by short remarks and observations, and Notebooks, which have longer items, sort of mini-essays. In my experience, too many Weblogs combine aspects of all three to break them out into categories. It’s just blogs, is all.
I'm trying to combine category A + B, but mostly staying out of category C (too boring, too personal and too much for me)

44 year old Frank Robinson is a serious LEGO fanatic with a collection containing more than 100.000 pieces.
He and his identical twin brother, John, grew up on a farm without TV. But they played Lego and it led John Robinson into a career in architectural design.

Mittens fitted with velcro give babies a head start according to this article. I'm a bit skeptical about "forcing" development using gimmicky tools like this. It is probably a harmless excercise, and as the article also points out;
One might argue that -- since learning about the physics of the world is so critical -- a head start on learning to attend to objects might have a lasting developmental head start," said Needham. "However, we have no evidence to support that, and we do plan to look at these issues in further research

From the Dial-a-cliché dept. You've heard it many times "Half the world's population have never made a phonecall". Not true anymore. Two thirds have and the number is rising quite fast, according to this little piece in Wired. Funny how we hang on to little (incorrect) factoids without ever checking if they are still true. Reminds me of another classic; "Did ya know that the eskimos have 8 / 13 / 24 / 47 / xx words for snow?". I wonder what the actual number is...

Noteworthy; Jesper Olsen has been keeping himself busy with a nice new site for Concept-For-Hire. The site includes a mini-blog and lots of graphics and buttons to press. Pelle Brændgaard keeps a programmer-oriented blog at a very cool URL and one about economics at econofist.com.

Salman Rushdie remarked a while back that the 21st Century began on 9/11/01 when WTC was attacked. That is probably true, and it inspired me to put these three clocks on my office wall, permanently showing the time of the first plane crash (8:46:22, NYC local time, London and Snoghøj). Uneasy Anniversary indeed.

Michael Jackson thought he got an award at the MTV Video Music Awards, but he didn't. Afterwards he was ridiculed by host Jimmy Fallon;
"Michael Jackson looks great for 44," he said as the singer left the stage. "Between you and me, I think he's had some work done."

Direktør Henrik Gjørup fra Top-Toys (BR, Toys 'R Us) udtaler sig angående LEGO Company's planer om at åbne egne butikker;
»Det er pragtfuldt, at LEGO prøver at være detailhandler selv, for så forstår de os detailhandlere meget bedre. LEGO kommer selv til at sørge for lønninger og husleje, får problemer med svind i butikkerne, og kommer til at reagere med prisnedsættelser, når et varehus i nærheden laver kampagner med slagtilbud på LEGO-produkter.

For 2 1/2 år siden skrev gaab.dk;
Partnerskabet [mellem B&O og Jean Michel Jarre] er omtrent så sexet, som hvis L'Oreal havde hyret Marianne Jelved som talskvinde. Men måske rammer Jarre alligevel på en eller anden måde ned i segmentet for velbeslående ikke-tekniske/ off-trend sølvbryllyps-modne beokøbere. Meen der skal vist lidt mere til i det 21. århundrede, ikke mindst i lyset af B&O's noget skuffende seneste resultat. Men vi glæder os da på sin vis til at se når JMJ snarest spiller live foran pølsevognen på torvet i Struer.

Well, imorgen går profetien (næsten) i opfyldelse, når Jean Michel spiller for 35.000 radio/mobiltelefon-ingeniører og die-hard fans på en eng i Nordjylland.

Adventures in Spam Part II
In one of the worst cases of 1984 doublespeak ever, MSN Hotmail has a tagline that says "More useful every day". With over one billion spam-mails coming in per day according to MSN itself that is hardly the case. 80% of all Hotmail is now junkmail. Imagine the amount of servers, T1 lines and man-years wasted, not just at Hotmail HQ but worldwide. Aargh.

The real time business strategy tools from LEGO SERIOUS PLAY" is the topic of this article "The LEGO way to build corporate skills"

Mr Rory Fidgeon, a 32-year-old business consultant, admitted that his afternoon spent playing with Lego had been more fun than dashing up a mountain or white-water rafting.

'If corporate types can build a raft and sail it over a river, then playing with Lego shouldn't be that big a leap. And at least it's dry,' he said.


Not quite sure I follow the rationale though, it's a bit like; "Hey if I can jump over five burning trucks on my old three-wheeled skateboard, then going shopping shouldn't be a problem. And at least it's not so damn hot.

Musicvideo based on LEGO elements wins no less than three MTV Video Music Awards. Lead singer Jack White from The White Stripes says about the idea behind the clip:

"The concept is completely the director Michele Gondry's. We had dinner with him and he brought a sculpture of my head made out of Lego, and said 'This is what I want the video to look like,' so we said yes!"

The video took home VMA awards for "Best Editing in a Video", "Best Special Effects in a Video" and "Breakthrough Video"
