These are my links for February 25th:
- Conundrum: Media Companies and Social Media – The paradox lies in this: As content becomes increasingly channel-agnostic (due in large part to, and perpetuated by, social media) and the demand for ubiquitous content across multiple channels and services rises– media companies find themselves in increasingly precarious positions as ultimately, their business models are extremely channel-dependent.
- Scratchers Calendar Design – I still haven't made my 2009 calendars yet. Scratch that.
- My Google Adsense Income – a fake Google Adsense Generator to show how much money you are making. Make sure you click on the ads.
- Farming Fuels – As such, algae are able to yield thirty times more energy per acre than corn or soybean crops, theoretically producing over 10,000 gallons of fuel per acre (recent closed loop systems claim to produce between 100,000 – 150,000 gallons per acre). To put this in perspective, soy produces 50 gallons of oil per acre per year; canola, 150 gallons; and palm, 650 gallons.
- Peux-t-on rire de tout avec une carte ? – Photos of the Europa map… "l’art c’est la liberté, la liberté d’expression est un principe fondateur de la démocratie ». « Se rendre compte des préjugés est une condition sine qua non pour s’en débarrasser"
- About those missing Predator drones: It wasn't censorship after all – So yesterday's link about Google censorship was wrong… I'm skeptical.
- Fenty's Late Night on Larry King Live – The LAST chapter? So, no senators, no statehood, nothing beyond the current bill? [I added a comment with Mayor Fenty's reply to Larry King's final question]
- #19226 – This is a kinetic sculpture of a biker in… – The wheels are moved by the flow of the water.

These are my links for February 24th:
- Invader Interview – Space Invader talks about a semacode he designed, without actually mentioning the word "semacode," instead he only mentions QR-Code. Watching this video makes me want to go through with my QR-Code street art project that I've been thinking about for the last year.
- 1 Cool Screen, 8 Different Uses – this is what viral marketing has come to: include every single cute animal into a 2minute video. It works, I mean I am sharing it here, but then again, should one buy a product based on the number of cute animals involved in the video? One word: no.
- YouTube Dubber – I've been a big fan of YouTube Doubler, but this takes it to another level….
- Censorship in Google Earth: The case of the missing Predator drones – since the Predator drone operations are run by the CIA and not the US military, were shutter control orders somehow not properly relayed via the usual channels?

These are my links for February 12th:
- Polar Bears in the U.K. – I bet this could easily be done in the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC.
- HOW INSTANT RUNOFF'S WORKING IN VERMONT – Because candidates know they may need the second choices from voters who support other candidates as their top pick, the campaigns are remaining civil, and attempting to reach out to a broader constituency, than would be typical in a plurality election.
- Devolve Me – Upload a picture and see yourself turned into an much earlier version of human!
- Market Share Update – MapQuest continues to hold a small lead over Google Maps
