If you haven't heard of lonelygirl15, what digital rock have you been hiding under lately? If you don't know she's fake - sorry, but it's true. This article in WiRED magazine tells the whole story, as well as really hitting a sweet chord for aspiring internet media producers such as myself. Oh, and it also says 'NUTS' to a friend of mine who says "people will never watch content on mobile phones". That's right. Nuts to you!
Every once in a while I click on a Google Ad or two, because I'm interested in supporting web sites I read and there are sometimes pretty cool products and services on the other end. One example is Squarespace, a Manhattan-based software company that makes a pretty decent looking tool for making a website. I don't really see this as an option for casual users since there are so many free alternatives around, but for power users, businesses, marketers and people who don't want to buy "web hosting" this looks like a good alternative.
My friend Gina Riggio and I have begung publishing a new show over at Liberatr.net called Shrink Your Ecological Footprint. This show was born out of her appearances on my other show, You Can't Spell Crapface Without PFA. Gina and I hope to give people some tips for lessening the dent they make to our home, as well as starting a dialog with people about what's going on around the world. At no point do we claim to know everything, we just want to share.

I also hope Will doesn't mind my saying that he's going to send me a Flock t-shirt for my trouble.
