Ceramic Circuit Board Speaker Is Wafer Thin and Probably Insanely Expensive

This funky ceramic speaker has got a long history, which starts off with Japanese footballer/fashion icon Nakata Hidetoshi, whose Revalue Nippon Project is basically a way to marry and revitalize traditional Japanese crafts with modern designs.

The Longest Way

This is Christoph Rehage‘s journey across China. He shaved his head on the start of it and let it grow during his 4,646 km walk across China. Initially, he wanted to walk all the way back to Germany. This is what you get from stitching the photos and videos together. His blog, The Longest Way, is currently down.

AP Isn’t Silly But Reuters Gets It

AP’s senior vice president Jane Seagrave denied the news agency’s recently launched content tracking system would target bloggers, saying, “We want to stop wholesale misappropriation of our content which does occur right now … Are we going to worry about individuals using our stories here and there? That isn’t our intent. That’s being fueled by people who want to make us look silly. But we’re not silly.”

Charging bloggers $2.5 a word? Sounds like total BS to me. Most bloggers aren’t paid…

Thankfully, Reuters isn’t that stupid. They encourage people to link, quote and blog their content.

Almost Caught Up Blogging Backlog

It’s my first morning off in a while and I finally managed to almost catch up on my blogging backlog. With freelancing, working and training, there isn’t much time left at the end of the day. I’ve got to manage time more efficiently. It’s TGIF and tonight, I’m going to be off.

Someone mentioned a music festival, though I don’t plan on going. I’ll probably go running and biking instead.

Tweeters FMyLife

Today, my coworker came over to my desk and told me that I should protect my Twitter updates, because I had unknowingly made them public. My tweets include drinking stories, all the men I’ve hooked up with, various cuss words, sexual innuendos, and how much I hate my coworkers. FML

Coudal Partners

I wonder why I got 101 referers from the Coudal Partners. The only person that I have had some contact with, that is slightly related to Coudal since he is the guest editor for the month of December, is Micheal Surtees from Design Notes.

We Are Wolves

We Are Wolves

Billie Piper stars as Belle de Jour, a call girl from London. This show is based on the blog of Belle de Jour. She has written two books about her life and had been a contributing writer of the Telegraph until 2006. ITV has ordered a total of 8 episodes of this show.

This is the second show of the second season of the ITV show. In the last season finale, Belle had to decide between a super elite group of whores or being an independent escort. She tries out the first part and finds that it isn’t for her. Belle is still an independent escort and meets Bambi, a girl wanting to become one. Things go wrong when a freelance journalist followed her around after she refused to spill the beans on one of her famous clients. Belle thinks that she’s about to be outed.

Unlike what I initially expected, this show isn’t really about the world of prostitution. It almost idealizes what happens to sex-workers. I still find that the show doesn’t get into enough details about the life of a prostitute. It just skims the surface. Other shows like Californication and Weeds are able to delve deeper into issues while maintaining the same half hour format. Why didn’t Secret Diary?

If you keep in mind that this show is nothing more than a light dramedy, then you’ll be satisfied. Don’t expect it to tackle any earth-shattering issues. All in all, the show was OK, nothing more, nothing less. Other than that, Billie Piper is looking hot as usual.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Vincent Laforest’s Blog

Laforest is the guy who got to play with the new Canon 5D Mark II, which also shoots HD video. Looks amazing, but for now and the foreseeable future, I’m sold on Nikon.
