My thoughts on the iphone 4 antenna bubu

This is what happens when you test a design that's so radical that it has to be field tested hidden in a case. Of course they didn't find out until launch.

what's going on with the internet?

Which browser?



Which technology?



It's all heating up... apple vs flash blah blah blah.



No it isn't.

The internet as it is is still a bit broken.



The bandwidth is shit. There's 1001 ways of doing any one thing none of which work all of the time or at all.

bits

there's the advert, the story in that. Then the reality, which is generally consensual, but it's got lots of different stories. Those usually add up to the truth.

university clubs & corruption

Various recreational societies exist in universities, as they do in most large organisations. The book club. The smoking in the carpark club.

the future of digital special effects for character animation



Just composite the heads onto whatever you want. Rubber latex gloves as sets, as characters, whatever you want.



Digitally montaged pupeteering using physical models & real materials.



Stick it all together in the computer.


"glorified sock puppets don't look that exciting..."
