Έρχεται το Ready Player One!

Κάπου είχα ακούσει πως το επώνυμο βιβλίο θα γυριζόταν σε ταινία, αλλά βασικά το είχα ξεχάσει. Με το comicon στο Σαν Ντιέγκο την περασμένη εβδομάδα είδαμε και το trailer λοιπόν αυτής της ταινίας. Το trailer, αν δεν έχεις διαβάσει το μυθιστόρημα,

Φανταστικό σποτάκι

Αυτή την εβδομάδα κάνει σάλο στο ίντερνετ το διαφημιστικό σποτάκι του ημιμαραθωνίου Κρήτης. Από Ελληνίδα μάνα ξέρεις; Τότε έχεις δει το σποτάκι ήδη ;-)

This week in serendipitous music...

I came across this music video last week, by chance, while looking at my work's google alerts (one of them being for the term 'linguistics').  I guess  I had to listen to it!Switch out by Taim feat. LinguisticsVerdict: Not bad... the end was a little abrupt, and I am not sure why "linguistics" is the name of the vocalist, but whatever... Not a bad track, but definitely lacking in the connections

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Hive by Brannon BragaMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting post-nemesis cross-over between TNG crews and Titan (how else would you get Troy and Riker back?). The story is pre-JJ (where we already see B4 as having morphed into data), and this comic sets the stage for that to happen. A future Locutus, after the Borg have conquered everything, sends Data into

Cultural archiving of video games

This is the type of cool stuff I see that makes me want to be an archivist ;-)  That said, this type of hacking (both the hardware and software kind) is way beyond me.  The following video is of someone who is hacking the Sega Saturn (whose optical drives are slowly failing) so that the games can be preserved for future generations to come :-)

Review: Internet Inquiry: Conversations about Method

Internet Inquiry: Conversations about Method by Annette N. MarkhamMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting collection of researched essays on doing qualitative research on the internet. The book is setup in a Question prompt-response-responses to the response manner. In a sense it's a bit like a dialogue, or a panel discussion, but in written form.  It definitely gives you some food

Miss Jane - It's a fine day

A colleague's facebook post reminded me of this song the other day.  I haven't heard an ATB song in ages.  Need to see if anything new has come out.
