Video technique ‘Stuck in Motion’

The Moments Between, Episode 1: Japan from Trey Ratcliff on Vimeo. It’s a slow motion technique enabled by a $1000 camera capable of 300 frames per second (typical video is 30). It’s fun.

Big Bang Theory

I’m not big on sitcoms. The staccato formula of the format and the namesake situations usually leave me cold. I gave Big Bang Theory I watched after Mike said it is one of the few shows he watches (besides *poker* and the Ducks). I giggled once or twice during my first episode but that formula was still distracting. Then I watched another. Laughed more. And another. And now I’m sold.

iPhone RSS Reader

I’m looking for a new RSS reader for the iPhone. I have tried Google Reader and Netnewswire. Both are excellent, but they don’t do what I want. I want:

  • ability to save for reading later and tagging
  • send item to email without leaving the reader
  • full fledged web interface for desktop use
  • offline reading would be nice
  • I think that’s it. I stopped using Google Reader when I switched to Netnewswire. I took a look at it again while I made my list. Google Reader’s share with note option could be uses as a tag. I’ll have to revisit Reader. In the meantime, please help!

    Freaking Huge URLs

    Another excellent new product released today, the Freaking Huge URL Generator. Tinyurl and both had better watch this new competitor.

    new technology today

    Some great new technology is being introduced today. My favorites so far are Google’s Autopilot and IE 8.1 (Eagle Eye)


    I haven’t posted in 2009? That’s odd. I’m trying out tumblr. It looks neat but the RSS feed import features don’t work the way I expect. It’s strange.
