Crystal - Response - Lhriangel

Response to Crystal's video.

Your Brain Online

"Texters, surfers, and twitterers" have not trained their brains "to process multiple streams of novel information in parallel," as is commonly asserted but refuted by research, and claims to the contrary "are propelled by ... the pressure on pundits to announce that this or that 'changes everything.' "

LG15: Outbreak - Back To Wonderland - Crystal

First order of business: cleaning this stuff up. Don't get me wrong...I'm not a neat freak or anything, but I can't have my apartment looking like it was robbed. So, today I'm dedicating my time to picking EVERYTHING up, re-stacking my DVDs, organizing my shelves, cleaning the dishes, and most importantly: setting off three timed explosions of air freshener-bombs. I'm pretty sure I have the scent of 'lonely nerd' permanently embedded into my skin since sleeping on Will's couch, but I'll do my best to remove it.

The Web.Files #27 - The Fine Brothers

The Web Files

On the most recent episode of The Web.Files, Kristyn Burtt, who is currently experiencing a bit of Motor city melancholy, interviews The Fine Brothers, Benni and Rafi Fine, the sketch comedy duo and YouTube pioneers. The duo talk about their success and frustration with monetizing the web space. Also they are full of advice for would-be YouTube auteurs. In fact this is a must watch and sobering interview for anyone looking to launch their web TV career.

The Fine Brothers uploaded their first YouTube video in 2004. Since then they have released dozens of videos and gained over 30 million views. In 2009, they were embroiled in a bit of controversy when ABC launched its online Lost recap series, Lost Untangled, which closely emulated a series they had created a year before. Their latest project is My Profile Story, a scripted series about what happens when one logs off their social network and the profile comes to life. The series was part of the brand integration auction, which took place Wednesday in New York.

Where to begin? - Crystal


So many things have happened since last week, it's hard for me to even begin to describe it.

First off: I've discovered Will isn't a creep. He's just a nerd. A tiny, scrawny, clueless little nerd. But, he's nice.

Coming back to the apartment after getting things situated with the authorities and the landlord was a headache. My room was freezing, and I couldn't find a place to crash for the night. Since my window had been busted in by whoever decided to rummage through my place, I had to wait until things were fixed before moving back in.

Introducing Drop.io

drop.io logo

Once upon a time, when people needed to collaborate, they met in a large room to discuss their project. Then the Internet was developed, and people realized they did not actually like being around one another. Unfortunately, people still had a need to collaborate with others. Last year, when Google announced Wave, many anticipated that the ultimate solution for file sharing and real time collaboration via the Internet was around the corner. However, still in its infancy, Google Wave has yet to make the big splash its developers had hoped. Fortunately, there is a website, Drop.io, which offers many of the same necessary features.

Drop.io is an online file sharing and collaboration tool that is a snap to use. Setting up a drop takes only a few seconds, it does not ask for any personal information and no registration is required. Yet for all its simplicity, the site offers users a wealth of tools and options. Drops can be either public or private, private drops are secured by either a guest password or limited to a specific location. I have no idea why that would be useful, but I am curious to find a use. Also, drops are not searchable so the contents stay private even from the all-seeing eye of Google.

Drop.io offers users a number of ways to interact. Each drop is assigned a unique email address and telephone number, which allows for conference calls and voice messages. Also, thanks to the unique telephone number, Drop.io can send and receive faxes. Each drop has an integrated chat room, which can be popped out and embedded elsewhere, and support for video conferencing. Lastly, Drop.io is fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter making it easy to share files with friends and followers alike. Phone, fax, email, voice mail, chat, video, and twitter, Drop.io covers every conceivable method of file sharing and collaboration, well except for maybe carrier pigeon.

Drop.io’s latest enhancement was the release of the Drop.io API. The API allows developers to integrate the site’s functions into existing applications. For instance, the Drop.io Firefox plugin allows users to drag and drop files from the desktop directly into a drop. Also, Yahoo Mail recently integrated drop, allowing users to simply send large file attachments via email. Given the numerous ways Drop.io allows users to share files and collaborate the potential use by third party developers is limitless.

While there are a number of sites that offer to host one’s files, Drop.io stands above the rest. The fact that the site requires no registration makes it a very attractive option. Also, despite being simple to use, it still offers a wide range of powerful tools, which allow users to share files and collaborate in nearly every conceivable fashion. Next time you need to share some files with your friends, backup some of your own files, or if you are planning that next big ARG drop, Drop.io might be the solution for your needs.

LG15: Outbreak: WORST. WEEK. EVER. - Will

From Will's profile on LG15.com

To call January of 2010 the worst month of my life would be a bit of an understatement.

I wake up Saturday to the news of the Eiffel Tower explosion. All of Europe is on high alert, and everyone suspects terrorism. Not a good way to start off the day at all. Makes my head spin.

But, no worries! After all, the playoffs are still on! Despite the heightened security threat, the Cardinals game isn't cancelled. That could only mean good news, right? I mean, it's the Saints. THE SAINTS. Kurt Warner should have no trouble at all wrapping this thing up and advancing to the next round.

But then, due to an interception and a blind side, my man gets knocked to the ground before the second half. ...And he doesn't get up.

I don't care what any of you say...Kurt Warner is one of the greatest Quarterbacks to ever play the game, and THE greatest alive. He didn't deserve to play his (supposedly) final game while injured.

So, the Cardinals are out.


With the final Saints touchdown, my week of misery was complete.

And of course, there was the icing on top:

Crystal's still gone.

No word. No trace. The room is still locked up, and I can't get into it.

uh...not that I tried.

I talked with the landlord, but he won't tell me a thing. Something about 'confidentiality'.

I dunno. A lot of you are wanting me to break in...but I definitely don't want her to think I'm more of a freak then she already does.

If she isn't back by Wednesday, I'll consider it.

...and, on a lighter note, you all keep hammering me with messages wanting to know more about SHENtek. Sheesh...I get it, already. ...I'll bring you to work with me the next time I film a vlog. Sound good?

Oh, and another thing: it's snowing. Like....a lot.

...anyone have any GOOD news to share?
