The Art and Animation of Kurt Hartfelder: Batman: The Animated Series Storyboards
The storyboards above are the original production boards for the series intro. The camera work, screen design, transitions, and compositions are fantastic - and the infamous Batman music playing above it all really tops it off. I knew that this show was great when they were still producing episodes for it back in the early 90's, but after looking at this book again, I have a whole new respect for the artists who designed it and the producers who made it possible.

Ian Bogost - OAuth of Fealty
The fact that some rise above the despair of the product to make it work, to make it sing even, this is not because of anything Facebook has done, but a testament to the unceasing, even unhinged resilience of the human spirit. One does not develop with the Facebook Platform, but in spite of it.

The Weird Stuff Warehouse is where old tech goes to retire | Ars Technica
Tucked neatly between Yahoo! headquarters and Lockheed Martin is a row of unmarked warehouses. To the common passerby, it's nothing more than an office park surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns. But to those who are in on the secret, there's a place full of technology treasures waiting to be unearthed. It's called the Weird Stuff Warehouse, and for more than 27 years it's been providing the Bay Area with a surplus of old and new technology. It's not just a Goodwill for antiquated hardware, though—it's also a step back through time. Inside this warehouse, it's an era when RAID controllers were the size of a modern-day sound card and Windows 95 reigned supreme.

Tor/Forge E-book Titles to Go DRM-Free |
“Our authors and readers have been asking for this for a long time,” said president and publisher Tom Doherty. “They’re a technically sophisticated bunch, and DRM is a constant annoyance to them. It prevents them from using legitimately-purchased e-books in perfectly legal ways, like moving them from one kind of e-reader to another.”

This means it will work on all modern browsers, being the lastest version of Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. Rendering on Internet Explorer should be possible with some minor fixes in the 'Renderer class', but I'm afraid performance will be appalling.his emula"

Their were two VERY VERY unique (unique like we will never ever see them again at a wedding) items at this wedding. The first being the 2 actual Stormtroopers. The 2 Stormtroopers greeted guests as they arrived at the museum and mingled with them at the cocktail hour. Amazing. The second was the grooms cake, which you’ll see later in this post."

"Percussive maintenance is also known as percussion therapy or a technical tap. It is a term used to describe the malediction of an ill-behaved device[citation needed] to make it work, that is to say, swear at it and hit it. The origins and practice of the term are unknown, although some suggest the act became commonplace with the introduction of vacuum tube electronics, or perhaps with the invention of the wheel[citation needed]."

Harmonix and MTV Games were asked about including a similar feature and responded that they were interested, but wouldn't release it till they could do it correctly. Looks like that time is approaching as Billboard has word that they will be releasing "Rock Band Network" which will allow users to create, upload, and even sell their own songs. When's it coming?
