Adobe just released a FREE beta download of Photoshop CS6. I can just smell that official new Master Collection right around the corner...

Check this out: Stanford is putting out a live webcast of the "Future of Media Conference," where they're discussing everything from the future of video games to the socializing of music with a panel of representatives from related companies (Activision, Riot Games, Techcrunch, Turntable.fm, Facebook, Pandora, etc.).

You can watch the live feed here:

Apparently the Xbox 720 (or whatever it's going to be called) is rumored for a fall 2013 release date... and graphical capabilities will reportedly be SIX times greater than it's predecessor. Yowza.

Had an original gameboy too, now that I think of it. I played plenty of SNES at other people's houses, but never got one for myself. I did go through a bit of an NES/SNES emulator binge in 2005 to make up for it.

By the time SNES was around, I was already firmly entrenched in the PC gaming world, playing games like Test Drive 3, Sim City & Civilization, and online gaming via The Sierra Network. Then Doom happened, and who cares about Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis when you're playing a first person shooter with three other people via an online BBS that emulated network play? Consoles couldn't catch up fast enough for me, and by the time they did, I didn't really have time for 'em anymore.

I'm not sure why, but I find this a strangely poetic peek into peoples' lives. Watch as this camera makes it's way around a Sushi shop in Japan on a conveyor belt:

I wouldn't be opposed to some of those sounds. I was just jamming out to the original themes to some of my favorite games growing up. Case in point: Zombies Ate My Neighbors OST - Zombie Panic (I nostalgia'ed all over this song - even if it's not that great).

Engadget has a written preview of the new OS coming out for Macs this summer code named "Mountain Lion.". It definitely looks... interesting. I'm wondering how professional workflow will benefit, lose out, or stay consistant with this new design...

Keanu Reeves is producing and starring in a documentary focused on the transition in movies from film to digital. It has quite a few people in it (George Lucas, David Lynch, James Cameron, etc.) and seems like it's going to be a pretty interesting watch.

Check out the trailer here:

Hey guys - check out this pretty interesting documentary that explores the consequences and advantages to creating film, making music, and establishing an artistic presence in the Digital Age.

Interviews included range from Moby, Hot Chip, Robyn to Seth Godin and a couple independent filmmakers / one of the founders of RED.

You can press play by either pirating it or buying it off of itunes:

Pretty interesting: 'Girl with a Dragon Tattoo' was the "first large-scale end-to-end 4K digital cinema release." They shot on the Epic and RED ONE and were able to crop frames with a 20% look around. Pretty impressive - I hope the rest of Hollywood starts to adapt this workflow (although it does happen to need a TON of fast hardware to have some bit of playback - the article says they had 55 TERABYTES worth of footage. That's $25,000 worth of space.)
