From the internet video invasion, we have Mr. and Mrs. Bender exploring the new field of straightness, and from A Liam Show we have a teenager getting what she wants. Both set to techno and both addicting views.

Nicole: i think vlog is a horrible word
Jason: Vlog the Implogger
Nicole: it doesn't roll off the tongue at all
Kevin: yeah i think the marketer should come up with a new buzzword. how about vournal?

Nicole: and like, have a tie-in with the V show from the '80s, and have people ripping off their faces
Kevin: and and
Kevin: have a ton of asian tourists on marketing material
Nicole: oooh! dude.
Kevin: (jumping up and down in excitement)
Using the motion sensor in a Macbook, Erling Ellingsen has worked it so that his desktop manager switches desktops when he taps his laptop screen, like a little shove. So fun!
Someone pointed out Erdõs-Bacon numbers to me today. My first thought was, "Who the hell thinks this stuff up?" The second thing I thought was, "Hey, what about that Winnie chick from Wonder Years? I wonder what her number is."
