Enjoying a nice moment to himself on this resort island, a man was jogging on the beach and listening to his iPod when he was struck from behind on Monday evening. Officials say the man neither saw nor heard the single-engine plane making an an emergency landing. Must of had his music up pretty loud.

//Google takes aim at Digg


In another bid to Google taking over the world, they have released a new service called Reader Play. It basically adds a bit of fun to RSS feeds by pulling in the most popular pictures and videos from across the web, and featuring them in a slideshow.

Currently the target audience is entertained by the likes of Digg, Fark, and Reddit, which regularly show the type of comedy videos and imagery to be shown on Reader Play.

//Old Skool

I was looking through some of my old files last night, and I found some stuff I made 9 years ago as a student. These few elements were part of my end of study elective which was an interactive catalogue for Sony.

I had to create everything from scratch in 6 weeks on an old G3 powermac. Check them out...

//ACMI Screen Worlds Exhibition


Went and checked out the new exhibition 'Screen Worlds' at ACMI on Sunday. It's amazing to see how we have progressed in technology and how it has contributed to film, television, and gaming.

It's fun for the whole family with interactive displays, rarely seen footage and fascinating objects unlike any other.

Highlight for me was the 'Matrix dome' where you can film a 3 second 360deg of yourself and friends doing a movement, which you can then email to yourself after. Check out mine below.
