A first in what they are styling as a look into the secret lives of the creative types who contribute to their Drop City project, Comune profile collaborator Warren Thomas of The Abigails, who gives an inspiring testimony on what makes him tick.
People tend to underestimate their true value. A gentleman by the of Federico Zannier has decided to data-mine himself and put together his findings, from surfing habits to which keys he hits most frequently as a Kickstarter experiment to see what his online activity is worth. His campaign comes to a close in about three weeks’ time and I am curious to see what the outcome will be.

Arguably the best song of 2012 finally gets the video treatment. King Kendrick enlists Mike Epps to baptize him in holy water and makes a statement on how he feels about Molly at the end of the video. Poignant stuff.
We live in a space where disruption is not only inevitable but welcome: it keeps corporate bigwigs on their toes and gives the little guy a fighting chance at achieving their dreams. In this short clip, Jon Buscemi and Ryan Babenzien talk direct-to-consumer marketing and cutting out the middle man to leverage price points and make their wares reasonably accessible.
The song is gorgeous and the visuals to Theophilus London‘s latest single match it to a T.
Archive is a documentary on the history of the Internet and the importance of storing the largest gathering of information and media the world has ever seen. The Internet Archive project has amassed 10 Petabytes’ (a Petabyte is a thousand Terabytes, for those counting) worth of content, from pages to music to videos since 1996. Fascinating stuff!
I know a lot of you are thinking about getting into the blog world to share their perspectives but might be afraid of taking the jump because they lack design or programming skills. The guys at Don’t Fear The Internet have put together a series of tutorials to help you grasp the basics of HTML and CSS in a language anyone can understand. A great starting point for the creative in you just begging to break loose.
I think stand-up comedy is the last frontier: the only place (other than a court of law, that is) where truth-telling is still encouraged and its messengers stand defiant, undaunted by the judgement of others. Louis CK really is the George Carlin of our time and his “Of Course, But Maybe” routine off his latest HBO special is right up there with Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television.
I’m a strong advocate for thinking global, yet as you grow and progress along your path I equally believe that you are not to forget where you come from. Rich Kidd proudly claims his old ‘Sauga City stomping grounds and SonReal rides the waves for his native Vernon, BC. Sometimes you have to look back to see how far you’ve come along.
