About once a month I get excited by a product that will enhance my cultural experience. Griffin Technology is a sponsor of Culture Catch, thus, I've been paying closer attention to their product line. They have lots of great stuff for the iPod, but the new wireless speakers they have coming are really cool. Connect to an iPod base station, the speakers are rechargable, thus don't need to be plugged into the wall. Why is that important? If your outlet isn't grounded properly, powered speakers can get a small buzz. Read more »

Apple iPhone

As I am a follower, Apple does a great job in getting you to believe that you must have their lastest product. Before the iPhone, it was the G5 Intel Quad, the iMac, and of course the iPod. The iPhone is amazing, but it is just a phone. The G5 is very fast, but still a computer. The iPod, well, that was as revolutionary as the original iMac in '84. Read more »

Actors, Writers, Directors

Scripted User generated content. That's how I describe the new web series I'm launching. For the past six months, I've been working with a group of actors developing a web series based on pop culture in New York City. The development has been an organic experience. Scripts are somewhat grown from ideas that I come up with. Actors then take the ball and run with it. This series are short stories about what artists do for art sake.

I've known Imus since the early 70's when he and his family moved down the street from my childhood home. I never met him, but became good friends with his daughter in high school. She's completely opposite from her father's persona on the radio. A real sweat soft spoken girl who'd never be one to ruffle the feathers. I had heard enough stories from her to know that Imus was a bit out there. However, growing up in CT outside NYC, anything was strange if you weren't playing by "rules" set hundreds of years earlier by those who founded the town. Read more »

The interactive world is all in a tizzy right now. G3 phones, those that play video, have gone viral. Numbers will go from 220 million global today to 500 million in five years. Ad expenditures are on an equal pace to increase dramatically before the decade is over. Read more »

Real Convergence is Here!

In the last 20 years, the computer consumer has been faced with a really painful decision - Mac or PC. For me it's always been a Mac, as a film maker, the PC never really entered my mind. If I was a sound editor or into 3D, then I most certainly would have made the switch. There has been that occasion when I wish I had a PC. A computer game only available on a PC or many different types of business software. Even massive, a program I don't need but would love to dream about having it just to play around, only runs on a PC. Read more »
