griefer_queafer's Sift Talk Posts




For those who care to know...

... I will be taking a leave of absence from the sift for a while. I know I haven't been on the sift too too long, but it feels big because the sift(ers) has really helped to keep my sanity during my trying times trying to lock down my masters degree.

About to join a documentary crew as a cameraman, starting up in Maine, and ending all the way down in the Keys. If you haven't guessed, the doc is about route 1. I guess they are aiming to sell it to travel or discovery (if they are lucky)... otherwise, you may see it on PBS or something within the next year (will keep you posted). After that (a month) I am going to be moving up to rochester, NY, and will be starting on an Art History PhD in the fall. Whew. it never ends.

In any case, i wish you all the best during the rest of the summer. See you soon, and keep those quality embedz flowin', kids!

Frontline's "Digital Nation"

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/digitalnation/

So this is my first post on sift talk, and I thought I would try and wait until I had something that I suspect would interest most of you. If you haven't seen it already, PBS and Frontline are putting together a pretty fascinating online series of documentaries centered around the idea that what will ultimately define our age is digital technology.

Frontline has done some docs like this one before, but this one is particularly cool because its content and its primary mode of exhibition are married.

So far they have released two "chapters." I guess they are going by country, because part one deals with Korea... specifically with video games and video game/internet addiction. The second chapter deals with America's emergent robotic military.

The other thing I wanted to bring up is actually a question for the veteran sifters and I guess Dag specifically. PBS video has embed codes; is it possible to post these? I couldn't get it to work. ;(

Cheers!
