What's the greatest recent pop culture work of fine art? Angry Birds.

There has always been a bias against animation - it's always been for kids. At least, that's what many people think. Every time a new technology comes along, such as green screen or 3D, someone always celebrates the death of animation.

The truth is, animation is art. No one ever expected the wild success of Walt Disney, a man who drew silly pictures on the side of his First-Aid truck during World War I to lighten the spirits of wounded soldiers. Animation helps use see the world in new ways.

In the mobile age, we can explain epic stories just by playing a small game, on a phone, with other people around the world. Why isn't animation dead yet? Because it's creative, and creativity (and the appreciation of it) never dies.

As you enjoy your next gaming experience, take a brief moment to thank the millions of artists out there (aka animators) who spend their lives making a modern masterpiece for you.

I think the quality of Mad Men has gone down, but I can't deny Jon Hamm's heart-on-his-shoulder, gentle-yet-strong acting style.

I just rewatched the whole series (thus far) a few weeks ago and I have to say I really like season 4. The end of it was kind of lame, but the storyline of them getting settled in as a new company I thought was really interesting and made it really different from the other season. But, I agree with +Susan Kling Finston that the season 3 finale was the best. I'm pretty excited to see what season 5 has in store, this is often the last really good season for a show.

Lots of things for Google to think about.
 
What's still a bit confusing for me is the fact that I have 3 gmail accounts (perso, seesmic, leweb) and Google+ keeps trying to make me also open 3 G+ accounts with friends finding those emails etc. Something wrong there, I only want one, this one.

Nature lovers, here's your story of the day: On a solitary volcano island, a discovery of extraordinary life.
The insect is so large — as big as a human hand — it's been dubbed a "tree lobster." It was thought to be extinct, but some enterprising entomologists scoured a barren hunk of rock in the middle of th...

If you haven't watched this, take some time. It's a beautiful, intimate, magical film.

Happy dancing!

File Under: Typosquating.com
 
"Two so-called ‘typosquatting’ websites that directed unsuspecting Internet users to sites pretending to be Wikipedia and Twitter have been forced offline, with the respective owners fined £100,000 ($156,000) each.

The act of typosquatting involves individuals or companies registering domain names that are similar to other popular domain names, but differ by a character or two. They then seek to capitalize on Internet users hitting the wrong key on their keyboard and inadvertently landing on their site instead.

Whilst some typosquatters make no attempt to mimic the genuine website through its content or design, visitors to ‘Wikapedia.com’ and ‘Twtter.com’ were presented with similar-looking fake versions of the real sites, except they contained adverts for iPad and MacBook competitions"
