  • 55 days short of its 15th birthday, the Rocky Mountain News in Denver published its final edition today, after announcing its closure yesterday. The video on the site is about 18 minutes long and is a great use of multimedia storytelling. Ironic, eh?
  • I am getting better at taking pictures with my point-and-shoot Canon SD850 (an improvement over taking pictures of, well, nothing), but I still kinda stink. This is a good primer on why my pics will never look like those of our staff photographers.
  • Oh my lord. MIB reclaims his Twitter identity from a poser only to discover that LeVar Burton has over 33,000 followers on Twitter, and thus must be challenged. Burton’s response? “It may be necessary to go Kunta on his ass!”
  • October, 2008: According to CNN iReport’s citizen reporter, Johntw: “Steve Jobs was rushed to the ER just a few hours ago after suffering a major heart attack.” Apple quickly squashed the story, claiming it to be untrue. Did citizen journalism just fail us? You bet it did.
  • I found this on Metafilter, and the discussions afterward (found here) are great as well — talking about rhythm and rhyme in ASL and deaf culture, especially when the idea of “rhyme” is not based on sound.
