Hey JG fans. The comment feature of my blog is temporarily messed up. A crack team of scientists is working on this problem, so this will be resolved soon. Maybe.
Yay! No More Strike.
Thank the universal force of nature that permeates this non denominational hoiday season that the strike has straggled to a serendipitous segue to a non striking state.

Finally dealing w/the heinous spam comment flood that has been inundating jg.com of late. Sending the spamsters packing, so to speak. Do not try spamster packing at home.

I Scooped Brian Lehrer
Brian Lehrer interviewed Douglas Rushkoff today about his new book "Get Back in the Box," a day after I came out with my interview with Rushkoff on the same topic. Always nice to be ahead of the curve, if only barely.
P.S. Brian, I love your work!

Audio Interview: Rushkoff Talks About "Get Back in the Box" and "Testament"
This is an hour long audio podcast of an interview I did with Douglas Rushkoff, September 19, 2005. Rushkoff discussed his latest book, Get Back in the Box, in which he looks at the current renaissance and its implications for the business sector. He also talked about his new biblically inspired dystopian sci-fi comic book series Testament Toward the end he shared a few thoughts about videoblogging. This interview is a must for aspiring reality hackers.
I will post short video excerpts from this interview over the next few days.
Audio recording by Matthew Culliford.
Music in the intro and outro "Harmonic Drone Sample" by Gurdonark.

Mikey Sklar, Maker of the Day
My amigo Mikey Sklar was featured as Maker of the Day on the Makezine Blog for a project he made to keep cool in the desert, a shirt made of 38 little electric fans. I recall him telling me that it kept him refreshed, but it also sent unwelcome jolts of electricity coursing through his body at random intervals.

I've been getting deluged with comment spam lately, so I'm shutting down the ability for visitors to comment until I implement a solution.
