    Billionaire Comcast CEO Brian Roberts Last night I spent a frustrating hour trying to cancel Showtime with Comcast, my current cable TV provider. I could not find (nor is there) any way to cancel any Comcast service online and their customer service department was closed. Finally I was able to get chatty with one of those chatbots online who confirmed to me that there is simply no way to cancel Showtime on Comcast without speaking with a human representative. Even though the chatbot convinced me they were a human, they were not allowed to cancel it for me and I would need to try again…

    I just installed an ANKR in my camera bag. Over the past 10 years I’ve had this reoccurring dream about my camera gear and my backpack being stolen. I’ve actually had two cameras stolen over the years unfortunately. When you use your camera every day like I do, it’s a hazard to have to deal with. My friend Trey Ratcliff was jacked of his camera bag earlier this year. So I was very pleased to learn about ANKR. ANKR is a new product that alerts you when you become separated from your gear. The ANKR itself is super small, not much thicker than a quarter. I hid mine in a hidden…

    There’s encouraging news for home entertainment in the mid-year numbers report issued July 31 by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, but I fear that once again people are going to overlook it and misinterpret the report in a negative way. The big news, to me, is that in the second quarter of this year consumers spent more money on digital delivery options than on physical media. I know, I know — the bulk of that increase went to Netflix and subscription streaming, at the expense of Blu-ray Disc and DVD. But that’s really not the way I see it — I believe this little…

    In a home entertainment world going digital and on demand, Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger straddles the fence between the status quo and evolution. Speaking Aug. 4 on the Disney fiscal call, Igor reiterated his belief that the bundled channel pay-TV ecosystem represents the best consumer value, including access to ESPN. Despite citing data that claimed 83% of pay-TV households watch ESPN, the No. 1 sports network has increasingly come under scrutiny as it downsizes on-air talent and streamlines costs in the face of pay-TV subscriber cutbacks. In addition, Iger said projections suggest the 5½…

    The traditional television networks had to be all things to all people. In order to distribute their content, they needed deep infrastructure along with multiple broadcast, cable and FCC licensing agreements. Today everyone is a broadcaster and the costs are minimal. Brands used to have to buy their way into a network’s broader audience – now they can target their exact audience directly, while owning the content. It’s a big shift in thinking as marketers go from paid to earned and learn how rich the rewards are for bringing something valuable to an audience that will become…

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:20 pm
    I just wrote about how Apple may be blocking Spotify from working seamlessly with their hardware. I was worried that these type of tactics from Apple may give AppleMusic the upper hand. In some ways I wanted Apple’s new service to give me a great reason to switch as all of my owned tracks still sat in iTunes and the idea of having everything integrated into one place made a lot of sense. Unfortunately, aside from the deeper hardware integration, AppleMusic was a total disaster and here’s why. Sound quality. Maybe my ears need tuning but Apple’s service is all treble and no bass.

For a first version I was amazed at how good Beats was. Back then Spotify was still a bit clunky and basic functions like searching your saved playlists by artist were missing from the app. But I stuck with them, for 3 main reasons. First, my playlists were all organized and saved – the main barrier to exit for most people. Second, I loved the social interaction (Facebook integration) and song sharing between friends as a personal…

People were being pitted against one another simply for being different, but the truth is that every person is beautiful in their own way. We each have qualities that make our souls shine just a bit brighter. It is this truth that has caused people to begin to stand up for one another, to stand up for themselves. It has become more common for people to show off this pride in a variety of ways. One such way is, of course, social media.

    Summary: People lie on social media all the time. Turns out, though, that women tend to lie more when using social networking sites. Researchers recently analyzed public social media posts from Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using a "deceit algorithm" to measure how many posts contained lies.

    You don't have to be a Foo Fighters fan to notice that a cover of one of the band's most iconic tracks, 'Learn to Fly', has gone viral in the past week. But it's not just any old cover, it's a lesson in crowdfunding a dream and marketing it to exactly the right people. In this case, the Foo Fighters themselves.

  • A 15-year-old Google Science Fair finalist came up with a genius way to transport vaccines (GOOG)

    4 Aug 2015 | 6:09 pm
    When Anurudh Ganesan was an infant in India, his grandparents had to carry him nearly 10 miles to get vaccinated. By the time they arrived at the designated location, the treatment had become ineffective because of a lack of refrigeration. Ganesan survived, but hearing the story from his family for years had a lasting effect on him. "For many, that trek to be vaccinated is a matter of life and death," he says. In 2013, 1.5 million children died because they didn't receive appropriate and effective vaccines, according to the World Health Organization. Ganesan vowed to come up with a solution.
  • Why one CEO thinks the market that Box and Dropbox created will be wiped out in 2 years

    Eugene Kim
    4 Aug 2015 | 5:56 pm
    Box and Dropbox are the two poster children of the booming cloud file-sharing and storage space. Box is now worth $2 billion and Dropbox last raised funding at a $10 billion valuation. But Vineet Jain, CEO of Egnyte, a competing hybrid cloud-storage vendor, believes their services will have a tough time moving forward. Why? Because they’re sticking to a cloud-only service. Jain believes cloud-only services won’t be able to survive the onslaught of near-free services offered by bigger cloud vendors such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. “Everyone is fighting for the low-end,…

    Popcorn Time, the Netflix-like website for pirated movie content, may be vulnerable to a hack attack, TorrentFreak reports. This is according to a Greek security researcher named Antonios Chariton who published a blog post this past weekend. Using a series of techniques, Chariton wrote that he demonstrated how "someone can get complete control of a computer assuming they have a Man In The Middle position in the network." A 'man-in-the-middle' attack is when a hacker intercepts a data request between two machines. It is then able to swap the intended data for something…

    I’m a big proponent of working within a set of limitations. I’ve purposefully done this numerous times both at MediaStorm and in my own work: from setting out to make a film that’s exactly one-minute long to creating a fictional movie with the attributes of a documentary. Setting yourself up against restrictions can be a powerful means of encouraging creative problem solving. But with Travel Anonymous, a MediaStorm collaboration with photographer Jeff Hutchens, I could literally do anything. Nothing was out of bounds. Case in point: at one of my first meetings with Jeff, he told me he…

Everyone who travels by themselves knows the feeling of anonymity that comes when no one really knows exactly where you are or what you are doing in the world. The further you are culturally from home, the greater its intensity can feel. Travel Anonymous explores that intensity and the dreamlike state life takes on when you leave the familiar behind.

  • De facto or de jure? Five misused tags.

    Dan Gravell
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    This week we step up a level of abstraction. We take a look at, not individual music library tagging, but instead, tag schemas. That means the pre-defined tag fields (and in some case values) that may be used to tag a collection. Such pre-defined fields, when mandated by a standardisation group, could be considered de jure. But this is not the only source of a tagging scheme. Over time, music library collectors may adopt certain fields for a given purpose, or define their own label. This is called de facto. Here come five different tag fields that have been perverted from their original…
  • Album by album, country by country

    Dan Gravell
    13 Jul 2015 | 4:00 pm
    The commonly held view that artists release a set of albums is a simple and easy to remember notion, but it's overly simplistic from a music collector's perspective. We tend to think of artists releasing bodies of work - albums - but when you get down to the nitty-gritty it's that "R" word that matters to music collectors - "release". When you build a music library, whether it's physical or stored on your computer, you need to think release, not album. It's the release, the actual collection of files or physical media, that you are in possession of. It is but one manifestation of the album;…

    A slight diversion this week, as I apply music file tagging to a different topic - smartphone ringtones! Ringtones on Android smartphones are music files, just like the ones that make up your music collection. Realising this, I wondered how these files were tagged, if at all. Here's how my original list of ringtones appear (on my ancient HTC Wildfire). So I plugged my phone into my computer (the phone was connected as a USB drive automatically) and then pointed bliss at the folder of ringtones. Here's what I got: The only place I could conceive tags are shown from ringtones are in the list of…

    It used to be that radio stations were in control, and their audiences reacted and behaved accordingly. A great example of this occurred more than 30 years ago, typifying how radio campaigns usually worked. Many rockers – especially those from Milwaukee may recall the stunt that WQFM’s Tim “The Rock N’ Roll Animal” pulled off in 1982. Courtesy of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel archives The Who had put together their U.S. tour schedule, omitting Milwaukee, one of America’s great rock towns. QFM was embroiled in one of those classic radio battles with WLPX, and so the idea was…

While there must be interesting CPAs and dentists, the number of real characters per capita at radio stations has to statistically be significantly higher than most other businesses. And then there’s Art Vuolo, or as many of you know him, “Radio’s Best Friend.” While most of the curious and fascinating people in radio spend their time in the studio on the air, some are on the periphery of the business, defying categorization, following their own path, and carving out a unique niche for…

Unlike the Taylor Swift standoffs with Spotify, and then Apple, Young says this one’s about quality.

    The digital marketing office is a strange and wonderful working environment, unlike any other in the world. With so many contrasting dynamics and personalities colliding at any one time, a digital agency is never short of some form of drama or exciting occurrence. Despite being different in their own individual rights, the general make up of most digital agencies remain exactly the same. Typically, an agency will consist of four major departments: web development, web design, digital marketing and SEO/social. In this article we are going to demonstrate how these four departments can be…

  • Film Review – Eden | Mia Hansen’s Tribute to 90’s French Touch Movement

    Andrei Sandu
    23 Jul 2015 | 9:20 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden explores Parisian dance music culture through the rise and fall of the French Touch movement with great skill and minimal melodrama – an authentic depiction of a paradise lost. Delivering a performance that suits the film’s style perfectly, Félix de Givry plays Paul, a DJ inspired by the career of the director’s brother, Sven Hansen-Løve. His descent is saddening, but it is difficult not to get caught up in the exhilaration when he first deciphers the chords of Liquid’s Sweet Harmony. With a magnificent soundtrack which includes Frankie Knuckles, MK…
  • Interview with Sven Hansen-Løve, Co-writer and Inspiration for Eden

    Bizarre Culture
    22 Jul 2015 | 3:41 am
    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden is proving to be the dance music film of the year. It is an authentic yet melancholy exploration of Paris’s dance music culture in the 1990s and 2000s, following the French House, Deep House and Garage clubs in which her brother, Sven was immersed. Indeed, Sven Hansen-Løve, of the DJ duo Cheers, serves as the inspiration for the character of Paul in this semi-biographical film. We caught up with him at Soho House a few hours before a screening of Eden to learn more about his creative input, his views on Hollywood’s depiction of DJs and, of course,…
  • The 10 Essential Documentaries Since 2000

    Jordan Dean
    10 Jul 2015 | 6:13 am
    Since the turn of the Millennium, there has been a distinct change in the art of documentary filmmaking. Where documentaries used to be unpopular to filmgoers due to the journalistic narration style, filmmakers now see the medium as a way to express themselves creatively. Storytellers have seen documentaries as a chance to explore the line between fact and fiction, whilst finding funding and distribution easier to come by. Over the past 14 years, documentaries have engaged a much wider audience with Film Festivals such as True/False Film Fest, Locarno, Visions Du Reel, IDFA, Hot Docs, LIDF…
  • Virunga: A Tale of Greed, Grenades and Gorillas | Review

    Bizarre Culture
    8 Jul 2015 | 6:10 pm
    Documentary filmmaking is a powerful medium that can be used to raise awareness about social issues. Films as such are able to empower groups to spark social change. Social impact can be a major factor of what makes a documentary successful, and not just at the box office, but in terms of enlightening audiences about social issues. Personally, I find certain documentaries enlightening. I’ll spend hours reading about them afterwards, signing petitions, sharing on social media and encouraging friends to watch them. Virunga is one such documentary, and one that exists as a microcosm of the…

    HAPPe HOUR Digital Marketing Comic Strip for July 31, 2015 YouTube unveiled a new feature that makes it possible for users to easily blur the faces of everybody in a video with just one click. This new feature is handy for hiding the identity of protestors/children/criminals and shows YouTube’s ongoing commitment to integrating editing tools onto their platform. How you choose to use the blur feature is up to you, but I imagine there is a group of COPS show editors somewhere wishing this feature was available 10 years ago!

  • jQuery vs Vanilla JavaScript: Front-End Design and the DOM

    20 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    JQuery has its many benefits. It’s  shorter for ‘most things’ and it has powerful animations and looping methods. Most of all, it just saves developers time.   Here are some examples of powerful methods in jQuery: .each Fadein() Animate() Prepend() append() There are many more methods that manipulate html and css. Animate and toggle through attributes, but I recommend to .css libraries and toggle on and off the css.  Plus, there are a few commonly used methods that are shorter in JavaScript, see them here: .

I joined because I wanted to immerse myself into a community of coders and learn how to look at things differently.  The first week started with JavaScript.

    Micropayments are not a new idea. In fact, they first appeared in the mid- to late-nineties. However, these models generally failed – largely due to the cost of processing even tiny transactions. But Bitcoin may offer a solution to that problem. So, are we ready for micropayments with bitcoin? Bitcoin Bitcoin is a digital currency. It is created and stored electronically. It isn’t printed, like conventional currency, and no one controls it. Instead, it’s produced by “mining”, or by people (and increasingly businesses) running computers to solve mathematical problems.

Whether it’s lack of attention from readers, who apparently, according to some studies, now have a 9-second attention span, or the power of visuals, the written word seems to no longer be in vogue.
