Lab Work

Quicktime 4mb :31

Random lab work.

Thursday, August 02, 2007


Yes. I'm not updating as much as I used to, especially not video. I haven't even been watching as much video online, at least not 'vlogs' as they're called. There are a few special people I've kept up with, but I haven't necessarily posted comments or such.

FireAnt was great. Yes, past tense. It's not updated anymore, at least not for Mac. The developers have admitted to working only on Windows versions, as most people these days (and all other days, huh?) use Windows. I found this aggregator today, which looks promising. I'm not sure I could convince myself to switch over and start watching, but I have hundreds of feeds in FireAnt, many of which are no longer updated. Regardless, I can't keep up with them all. It'd be nice to start new and fresh, but I'd miss a lot of the videos I used to see so often. Ah well.

Garrison *cough* Keillor

Anya Kamenetz alerts me of a recent article by Garrison, in which he states:

I am of a generation that believes in disaster; the younger generation does not. A Harris Interactive poll of Generation Y's feelings about work shows 92 percent want a "flexible work schedule," 96 percent want a job that "requires creativity," and 97 percent want a job that "allows me to have an impact on the world." All I can say is, Wow. Good luck. And now you know why we need illegal immigrants to do the inflexible uncreative stuff that simply needs doing right now. We've raised a generation of young people who want to be writers. Whassup? That's whassup, dude.

Hmmmm. Aren't you a writer Garrison? I don't appreciate ageism.

But I wonder, is this just a ploy? Garrison is usually quite respectable. I've always respected him, even though I dislike the majority of his work. He is held in high regard. It just seems far too obvious for him not to catch on to the fact that he's writing about himself. A creative job involving writing that impacts the world? Come on!
