A simple, yet effective and creative way to show off a product
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.

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.”

Return of the metaphor; Canon has a online museum

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.

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)

. 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...

Salman Rushdie remarked a while back that the 21st Century began on 9/11/01 when WTC was attacked.

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.

;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.

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

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.
