So Spotify is getting into the podcast distributing world.

Thoughts? Hopes? Fears?

Unsure. The next four days are travel days for me, so it'll be tough to dig deep. If either of you (or anyone else for that matter) finds out something I need to do, give me a holler! Or do it :)

I still don’t understand Klout, and it’s bugging me.

This is the part where I'm screaming internally at hope. One step forward to seeing #manapool on actual bookshelves.

I was very impressed by the level of detail when the Hulk stretched out his and to touch the black widow. Now keep in mind I saw this on an IMAX screen in 3D. I couldn't tell the difference in the CGI Hulk and Black Widow's hand. You could see the skin blemishes and the hair follicles on the Hulks hand due to the shear nature of the size differences. It was amazing. 

The first time I saw Final Fantasy was when I said "Why bother having real person do live action movies any longer when you can create an actor that looks real and would never get hurt or age" This is the future of movie making and I'd love to see much more CGI created actors.

"Their idea is the Vortex, a bladeless wind turbine that looks like a giant rolled joint shooting into the sky."

Well that's a way to describe it.

Major thoughts on ChromeOS. I want to work on a Chromebook and not have a laptop to burn my thighs with, but still, if anybody can get one of Android's office suite apps (with Track Changes) and a way to make it simple to edit and write documents back and forth between ChromeOS and Scrivener, I'll whip my checkbook out at Best Buy.
JR Raphael originally shared to Everything Chrome OS:
 
Some very interesting stuff on the way, gang. Get ready...
Android and Chrome OS are destined to come together -- but not necessarily in the way you might think.

When you read the news in the morning or throughout the day, what are you looking for? What sparks your interest? Science? New entertainment? Music? Books? Art, perhaps? Do you plow through the drama articles to seek out articles with major or minor shift in the human species' imagination? And do you imagine that piece brining a bit of good news to this world?

Share your thoughts.
