www is redundant, by the way

I don't know how many people have noticed but this site does not use www in front of the domain. We're a bonafida class B non-www site and have been for the past three or four years. If you link to us and use the dang www's, our redirect will get rid of them anyway. In fact, all domains on this server redirect to non-www domain names. is a site where you can test yours and others www-class and explains in short why the www is - and has been for years - redundant. Isn't it a blessing to be able to say "u-arr-ell-dot-com" these days rather than "double-ya double-ya double-ya (phew) u-arr-ell-dot-com" to someone? You save on typing and space on businesscards, it's all good. :)

Open source miracle horse-birth advert.

The Register has found a very strange Japanese ad for Open Source software, actress Norika Fujiwara promotes StarSuite - Sun Microsystems' Japanese Office knock off. In one ad, Norika is so stunned by the $18 StarSuite price tag she falls over and gives birth to a foal - the idea is "anything can happen".

"We convey a concept of our $18 strategy as surprising and moving in the ad," said Nori Matsuda, the president and CEO of SourceNext. "The ad basically says, 'Anything can happen.'"

adgames online - samorost part 2 and Sink ya Drink

Those who remember and enjoyed the beautiful point and click game Samorost (clues here) will be pleased to know that Amanita designs have made another one, called Quest for the rest for the band The Polyphnic Spree. It's shorter and easier but still good. Amanita has also made this interactive game for Nike labs.

On another viral game note Sink Ya Drink was released on Friday, where the object of the game is to drink as many pints as possible before the pub closes. I downed 103. *hic*


Art of Speed - Nike shows 15 speeding films

Everyone seems quite exited about Nike teaming up with gawker to deliver a "blogvertorial"over at, the NYT reports. We're kind of disgusted. Advertising masquerading as editorial content is a slippery slope, adn acerebic blogs is the worst pace for them.

Gawker Media, a small company that operates snarky Web logs on culture and politics, like Gawker and Wonkette, has begun blogging on behalf of major advertisers.

Although Nike did not exercise editorial control beyond contributing the 15 films, bloggers said they wondered whether bought-and-paid-for content could succeed in the idiosyncratic world of Web logs, where an independent and acerbic streak (particularly when it comes to mainstream media) is highly valued.
"I'm skeptical that a lot of online readers would be interested in reading an advertorial blog," Patrick Phillips, the publisher of a blog called I Want Media, said. "If you got to a site, and you know you're being sold something, I don't know that there's going to be a lot of interest.''

I' m far more exited about the brilliant films - take Saiman Chow & Han Lee's speedexperiment which can be described as yellow submarine on acid. Yes, on acid, it's such a cliché but when you watch the adrenaline cells decide to have a race with no mercy on all sorts trippy vechicles inside the runners body, you'll see what we mean.
