I've had my eye on Scott Kirsner's CinemaTech for awhile, and it just keeps getting better and better. He covers a lot of stuff about the impact that technology is having on the industry that we don't so much have time to get into over here - at least, not as much as I'd like to. I also recently found out that Scott and I are going to be on a panel together at SXSW next year, so I thought it was time to give him a shoutout.
Crime in Your Coffee always seems to be linking to great video and audio stuff – right now its music videos by Broadcast and Coheed and Cambria, plus clips from a very early Arnold Schwarzenegger flick – but, unfortunately, I don't speak German, so half the time I'm not even sure what they're telling me to look at.
"The new iPod video screen--only 2.5 inches!--takes us even closer to
our dream of dominating the screen, of reducing it to something that

same time that we have taken control of the screen, we have taken
control of the very building blocks of narrative itself." A snipet from the aptly-titled Digital Poetics.
