Loved this talk from TED (it's short - ~5 minutes):

Rob Reid - The 8 billion dollar iPod

I think my 8 GB Zune is only worth $300 million.

Buy Nothing Day - Nov 26

HM is getting in a bit early this year. November 26, 2010 is Buy Nothing Day. Forget about the Black Friday sales and crowds and stay home, enjoying a nice respite from all the holiday cooking and whatnot.

Color photos from 1939-43

Here are some color photos from 1939 to 1943. Something about them was just really neat. They're from an era when you think the photos should all be in black and white, so the fact that they're in color adds a touch of surrealism to them.

Copyright

A article in the Wall Street Journal by Tony Woodlief about copyright that HM thought was pretty good, albeit a bit too short. Well written and not the usual "Is Not/Is Too" stuff. Or at least both sides are given some representation.

A Raw Understanding - The Flashbulb

A song (and artist) HM likes. Funky beats!

<a href="http://theflashbulb.bandcamp.com/track/a-raw-understanding">A Raw Understanding by The Flashbulb</a>

Edit: The song is by "The Flashbulb", otherwise known as Benn Jordan. Seems to be not linkable right now, so you'll have to go to the site to check it out. It's on the album "Arboreal". Check out all his music. You can listen to most all the songs first at the site. HM has this one, "Soundtrack to a Vacant Life", "Pale Blue Dot" and "Louisiana Morning" so far.

Free Comic Book Day


Tomorrow, May 1st, is Free Comic Book Day, one of Honestmonkey's favorite days, even better than his birthday. Go find an independent comic book shop and try a few books. HM usually visits 4 or 5 stores in the area. Sometimes artists and writers are on hand, so check it out.

Pixels

Eight-bit fun. This was a bit of nostalgia and has interesting special effects as well.
