An oldie

Given the excitement about the royal wedding, though, I thought that a bit of royal gossip with French & Saunders might be appropriate.

Watch: “This Is Why We Fight” by The Decemberists

I don’t even normally like The Decemberists, but there is something about this video that really does it for me. Maybe the filter that makes it all look like Anthropologie’s post-apocalyptic collection catalogue shoot?

The Flip Camera is No More

Luckily, the Media Commons has been exploring a move to iOS devices for mobile video recording (and editing and photography and research and ARGs, and…) because the latest news from Cisco could have been devastating.  The networking company has decided it no longer actually wants to be into consumer electronics and is nixing the popular Flip line.  Since our standard Media Commons model is almost entirely based on Flip cameras at the moment, this will certainly force us to move even more quickly towards an iOS-flavored future.  Just glad we’ve already started the groundwork…
