Google+




Google, at times mind blowing (as with new features in Google Earth), and sometimes disappointing as in Google Buzz has launched its new service Google+ which should be competitor to the Facebook. As I'm a sucker for the social media, I got very excited.

More about what features Google+ should have are presented in a great TechCrunch article, an their first impressions on the usage of this service are here.

Uk's Telegraph writes why it is important for social media to get a valid alternative to Facebook.

ex.fm

Along with www.last.fm, which has become the standard for music scrobbling, ex.fm is the best music service on the internet imo. The music that is being scattered on the enormous number of music blogs and magazines can be listened trough ex.fm as a playlist, noted in the service’s profile and later shared on facebook, tumblr or twitter. Really smooth experience.



Ex.fm works primarily as a chrome extansion – but it a mega-extension. Ex.fm icon on the music blog page annotates the number of playable songs, which can be queued in a playlist and played in its music player. All the songs and the blogs are noted in the extensions library and then updated regularly – meaning that you can always have updated playlist of your favorite blog. The best feature is the users music profile on ex.fm website where the favorite songs can be noted, shared on social networks. Also other users can be friended and followed, and so forth. Although this all seems a bit complicated, it actually is very intuitive.



Amazing website/extension/service! Recommendations! You can find my ex.fm profile on http://ex.fm/svetiq with my noted favorite music.

Tiny Media Empire aka Daniel Danger


Tiny Media Empire

Daniel Danger is an illustrator and printmaker working out of New England. The son of an middle school art teacher married to a professional potter, Daniel was never going to be a mathematician or claims adjuster for a top rated insurance agency. Amidst old houses dead from the fallout of urban sprawl, railway bridges asleep from neglect, and trees that engulf everything; his work attempts to remind you of something you may have said to someone, or something someone may have said to you; back in that time period thats just too far away to remember clearly, but not so long ago you forgot about it completely. His memories and many of his friends are simply ghosts now, shaking him awake with mistimed alarm clocks and the sounds of a television from across the house. Documentation is key to get through the day. Things are always changing and its easy to lose yourself.

Daniel is best known for his screen-printed art prints and posters playing on these themes, often sold out within minutes of being released due to his fantastically supportive fan base . He has shown at A/V space in Rochester NY, Gallery1988 in LA, Wootini Gallery in Chapel Hill NC, Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago, The Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester UK, SXSW, Bumbershoot Festival, Pitchfork Festival, and upcoming show at Gallery1988 in San Francisco, and others throughout 2009-2010.

Daniels work has been used for bands such as Modest Mouse, The Decemberists, The Pogues, Built to Spill, Converge, Pinback, Fall Out Boy, Silver Jews, Grails, Nada Surf, Snow Patrol, Silversun Pickups, The Rapture, The Assailant, Aloha, Saves the Day, Minus the Bear, The Walkmen, Funeral Diner, The Arcade Fire, Hot Cross, Kelly Osbourne, Bravo Fucking Bravo, Poison the Well, Hot Hot Heat, The String Cheese Incident and many more. He has done work for Penguin Books, The Alamo Drafthouse Theatre, Gelaskins, Magic Bullet Records, Shock Value Records, Somberlain Records, Level-Plane Records, Sanctuary Records, among others.

Daniel runs Tiny Media Empire, a production company who release his art prints and posters, as well as elaborately packaged vinyl records and albums, artwork and vinyl box sets, designer toys, and prints by other artists. As well, he currently plays baritone guitar and sings in the erratic indie rock band A City Safe From Sea, releasing their debut full length LP in April 2009. As well, he has played in the bands The Hue of Two, IDNOCLIP, Pyramids, and The Lost Child Sound. He is an avid collector of vintage music gear, rare effects pedals, classic tube amplifiers, and bizarre guitars, to the point he has no more room in his house. He has a cat named after internet slang.
