The Duh

I think I saw the announcement of the new Boing-Boing TV on MetaFilter or Reddit, I can’t remember (Oh wait, it was via Laughing Squid). I generally have no problems with videocasts (For example, I always enjoyed watching ‘Rocketboom with Amanda Congdon’ and ‘Ze Frank’), but the show produced by Boing-Boing was not something I could bear longer than one minute. I also know why: it smells ‘over-produced’, thanks to that ‘glossy soft-focus’ look. Yeah, ‘over-produced’ sounds like the right word.

Hey: Microsoft announced their Zune 2.0s. The only real killer feature of the Zune is the wireless connection feature, which allows Zune users (limited) filesharing. And talking about Microsoft, I hear that they plan to release .Net code under (Microsoft’s specific) Reference License (which falls under the company’s Shared Source Initiative, which allows you to view the sources but not to copy and ‘recompile’ them). Read the Slashdot thread.

And to top it off, at CBC’s there’s an excellent discussion (and a podcast) about the HPV vaccine.
