Team CoCo

I can't say that I've watched any late night tv in quite a while now. I've always been a Conan fan though and I could have told you (as could many folks but apparently no one in the NBC boardroom) that Leno at 10 was a terrible idea.

I have been entertained by the two week long train wreck that has been NBC coverage and programing. Mary Elizabeth Williams has a great wrap up on Salon that's worth a look whether you've been paying attention to this nonsense or not.

It seems like Conan spent the past six months or so trying to give us that extra cowbell he thinks we deserve, you should at least watch him say goodbye...

Far Freaking Out Man

CNN has the lastest high tech video craziness to hit the web, a 360 degree video that lets you pan the view around while the video plays. It's fairly wild.

The video itself is a walk through what appears to be a park / square in PAP Haiti.

You can zoom in as well, although it won't let you loop the loop over the top (you bet I tried). It's also fun to pan around and check out the shadow of the guy wearing the contraption to try and get an idea of what the video rig looks like.

As Your Facebook Turns

Facebook just keeps growing and in the process becoming more important and harder to do without. For the most part they seem to do good things and to be fairly decently motivated.

The Rumpus has a neat interview with a fb employee from the end of this past summer, nothing that would be shocking if you're paying attention and a couple of cool bragging points, like translating the entire site into Farsi in 36 hours in the wake of the contested Iranian elections.

Have yourself a look, it's fun.

Just go already. Although I am a bit disappointed with Joshua Quince for The Jesus...

Insanity Is Good For The Kitchen

It may however require quite a bit of clean-up...

These two really do make a great pair, I can't even imagine how poorly Andres would mesh with Letterman or Leno or Conan...
