Writing about web page http://www.microsoft.com/surface/
I’ve not been inspired to blog for a while, but something has really caught my imagination over the last couple of days as it has a bunch of other people.
What’s really amazed me is the Microsoft (yes…Microsoft…) Surface Computing system.
It’s basically a flat touch sensitive computer screen, but they have implemented it so elegantly it has to be seen to be believed. The best demo I’ve seen is this one:

Writing about web page http://improveverywhere.com/home.phpImprov Everywhere are a group of New Yorkers who basically do street pranks/performances. Exactly what they do is hard to describe so it's best to watch:
Go and visit their site as you'll spend hours (as I did last night) watching some of the stuff they've been up to…it's genius.
PS. I love our new [media] tags

Writing about web page http://www.monkeehub.com/
Having just watched for the first time the brilliant JCB Song video, I went in search of it's creators.
What makes this even more fun is the fact that the maniac made this stuff with Flash…wonderful.

Following my discovery that Blinkx were being slightly misleading about their deal to show Warwick content, it shows the importance of knowing what people are saying about you or your organisation on the web.
I know we all occasionally do a little vanity search for our name on Google, but ideally you'd have new results sent to you when they happen.
Do you know what people are saying about you online?

Following my subscription to all mentions of ‘warwick university’ on Google News, I came across this…
Top tier universities from around the world are making content from the arts and humanities, as well as social, biomedical, and physical science
disciplines, available through the partnership. Beyond Cambridge and
Princeton, lectures from institutions including UC Berkeley, Harvard,
Middlebury College, Columbia University, Washington State University, the
University of Glasgow, University College London, the University of Warwick
and the University of York will now be searchable through http://www.blinkx.tv.
If you do a little search on Blinkx and you do indeed find some Warwick videos, but they all seem to be from Warwick TV, the student society. Now, I’m not saying this is not good content (in fact some is great), but it is not quite what you were lead to believe you’d find after reading the press release. I wonder how many other of the universities in that list are actually publishing academic content?

Some techy soul has been good enough to upload their video of University of Warwick 40th Anniversary Gala Concert fireworks display to Google Video
For anyone who wasn't their and doesn't believe how great the display was…take a look. If you've got any videos of your own you want hosted for free and want the world to see, just upload them. Warwick Shootout entries anyone?
