'The Fourth Screen' Mobile Media Festival :: global mobile media festival
This festival looks very interesting. They are pushing people to think about the phone in a different way, not just as a television that is carried in your pocket as it seems the providers are pushing for:
'The Fourth Screen' Global Mobile Media Festival will focus on the mobile phone as an emerging social, cultural and technological phenomenon.
We invite artists, technologists, and other creative thinkers to submit creations, inventions and concepts in two categories:
1/ moving images: videos made with mobile phone, movies, animation and games intended for mobile delivery
2/ wise technologies: software art, software and hardware that proposes new uses for mobile multimedia communication, applications that have positive cultural, social and economic impact in diverse cultures

Yahoo! Go - TV

Yahoo! Go - How It Works - TV
I had mentioned Yahoo and their TV initatives earlier so I figured I should give a pointer. While this exactly what I found the most interesting, it has a similar concept. (The Yahoo! Go TV Concepts were more interesting)

Yahoo is integrating TV with internet based video search and Flickr along with Music and Movies, complete with reviews (and sooner or later all of the other things you can find on Yahoo's site).

Zend Studio, Zend Development Environment Personal Review

Zend, a great force in the world of PHP development has what I think is the only IDE for PHP related development. All in all I think this is great and I am glad that this company offers such a product. It certainly helps the PHP cause and probably drives adoption in the corporate world. It also has features that I am sure can't be found elsewhere in the PHP development world such as debugging with variable watching and break points and so on.

Unfortunately, (speaking as a MacOS X user) this software has not lived up to my expectations. It is just a bit too rough around the edges for me to get to the point where I am willing to try the more advanced features.

Here is a list of what is wrong which I will update as find problems:

  • The pop-up menus that are shown when launching the program (Auto-Update and Tip of the Day) have checkboxes which seem to allow you to choose whether or not you would like the program continue showing them, or not. Unfortunately, no matter what I do, they always show.

  • I am unable to create a new file by choosing the File::New File command. The only way I am able to create a new file is by pressing the new file icon at the top of the IDE.

  • I am unable to save a project file of any sort. This causes me to have to reload each and every file in a project each and every time I start the program to work on that project.

  • The application does not maintain it's appearance settings. The windows that I have hidden are back each time I launch. Not a program that I am happy about quitting and starting up again.
  • Of course the program has many good points as well. The syntax highlighting is great. The error underlining as you code is very worthwhile and the command completetion is great.

    Overall, it seems to be beta quality software on the Mac. I may continue to use the free version (despite the ugly messages about not being able to do things in this version) but unless the edges are more polished, I can't justify paying more than $200.

    Hillary support's The INDUCE Act

    I was dismayed to learn that Senator Hillary Clinton has come out and in fact co-sponsored Senator Hatch's Induce Act. What follows is a draft of a letter that I am writing to Sen. Clinton to express my concern. I hope that others will do the same.

    Here is some background material:,1283,64315,00.html

    Like your iPod, read this:

    Please comment on the letter as you see fit.

    Dear Senator Clinton,

    I was dismayed to learn that you have come out in support of Senator Hatch's Induce Act. I hope that on further consideration of the issues that this bill covers that you change your stance to better reflect the opinions of your constituents and for the betterment of our society.

    The Induce act as it currently is written does much to stifle free-speech, artistic and fair uses of media. Imposing legal responsibility on the makers of devices and software for illegal use such device or software will create a burden so great on manufacturers and creators of such programs that they will not develop or offer products that have potential for misuse.

    I fear that by trying to curb the theft of copyrighted material you will instead be curbing the ability for individuals and groups with legitimate uses for the technology that enables such to use it. Being thoroughly immersed in an academic and artistic atmosphere, I am witness every day to fair uses of technology that would not exist today were such a law in existence. In fact I feel that the software that I am using to write this letter would not have been developed simply because it includes the ability to cut and paste text from any source into the document.

    I believe that should this Bill become law that it will undo much of the progress of free-speech and alternative media creation that has been enabled by the internet, personal electronic devices, computers, tape recorders and so on. Furthermore it will be a giant step backwards and lead to increased power by the media and further relegate citizens to the role of consumer without a voice.

    I hope that you will reconsider your position on this matter.

    Thank you for your time.

    From the article:
    Part of the future I believe I'm seeing is a change in the software ecosystem which, for the moment, I'm calling situated software. This is software designed in and for a particular social situation or context. This way of making software is in contrast with what I'll call the Web School (the paradigm I learned to program in), where scalability, generality, and completeness were the key virtues.

    The Interaction Laboratory was established in 1999 to investigate the future of human computer interactions and digital lifestyles. Expanding the previous real-world user interface research within the Sony Computer Science Laboratories, we are currently working on fundamental technologies, including software architectures, hardware architectures, and sensor architectures, that will be needed to realize natural and intuitive interactions between the human, as a physical entity, and the information environment, as a digital entity. In addition to technology-oriented activities, we are also seeking a deeper understanding of human life itself, through cognitive research, and design and lifestyle studies. The Interaction Laboratorys fundamental goal is to establish symbiotic relationships between humans and technology.

    Linux users, record that output...

    Download Vsound
    From the site:
    This program allows you to record the output of any standard OSS program (one that uses /dev/dsp for sound) without having to modify or recompile the program. It uses the same idea as the esddsp wrapper from the Enlightened Sound Daemon (in fact, vsound is based on esddsp). That is, it preloads a library that intercepts calls to open /dev/dsp, and instead returns a handle to a normal file. It also intercepts ioctl's on that file handle and logs them, to help convert the audio data from its raw form. Vsound then uses sox to convert the raw data to the desired file format.

    The Danger of Software Patents

    Thanks to Hans for the link:

    Speech by Richard Stallman at Cambridge University,
    25 March 2002

    You might have been familiar with my work on free software. This
    speech is not about that. This speech is about a way of misusing laws
    to make software development a dangerous activity. This is about what
    happens when patent law gets applied to the field of software.

    It is not about patenting software. That is a very bad way, a
    misleading way, to describe it, because it is not a matter of patenting
    individual programs. If it were, it would make no difference, it would
    be basically harmless. Instead, it is about patenting ideas. Every
    patent covers some idea. Software patents are patents which cover
    software ideas, ideas which you would use in developing software. That
    is what makes them a dangerous obstacle to all software development.

    context. Your very own knowledge base accessible at your fingertip. No
    more "attending to" your messages. The messages organization is done
    automatically for you so as to not have the need to "manage" your email.
    Because once information is available at a keystroke, it doesn't matter
    in which folder you happened to file it two years ago. There is no
    folder. The information is always there. Accessible when you need it. In
