RU Sirius made some early and very important contributions to the memes that have since spread about the net and cyberspace etc. Many think he’s a total loon. They’re wrong. An interview with Jon Lebkowsky is a good example: It’s better to be inspired than Wired.
The lien multimedia is the local multimedia industry rag in Montreal. It’s in French only, and some of the links are for subscribers only. Good employment list though, and the articles on the right-hand side are free.
I’ve been trolling through lots of these sites on and off all weekend. Learning. I’m not new to the web at all, but I’ve never kept a blog, nor have I really followed them. I found two more today I like a lot. Ryan’s Sixfoot6 site is very nice. I like the blue, which is very similar to one of my original personal sites (long-gone) from 1994-5 or so. Not to say it’s dated or anything. I also like Tomalak’s Realm by Lawrence Lee. Lots of stuff for me to read there.
Canada wins the Gold Cup I’m not a huge soccer fan, but this is pretty cool. They’re ranked 85th in the world.
Jish’s weblog shmeblog takes up the question of what this [weblogging] is about. Being noticed? Refusing anonymity? It also goes to the whole question of the web/real divide. That divide doesn’t exist anymore for me. It did, but I’ve come out the other side. My online life – Café Utne, work, writing, whatever – is completely intermingled with my real life. The first thing that came to mind for me when I read Zeldman‘s piece today was that I worked with a guy on CTHEORY for four years and we never spoke. Or maybe we did once.
