Oh well, one of the nice things about living here is other people have taste.
As a San Franciscan, I just love this commercial Audi made for the Winter Games in 2010.
You can see the influence from the bouncy balls commercial.
(BTW, the way I embedded this video is with the new oEmbed support built into WordPress 2.9 development. You can just include the bare URL (or use a special shortcode).)
As someone who worked at Tagged, I can say that profit-sharing with game developers like Zynga have been instrumental to make our revenue numbers. If they make this much off us, I shudder to think how much they’re pulling in from open API networks like Facebook and MySpace.
(Not to mention way to many hours wasted on Mafia Wars and Poker. ;-))
In any case, another PHP job posting…
Hmm… maybe it isn’t obvious, perhaps an unprocessed image will help…
Yes, I had the camera modified for infrared photography. And, yes, I’m going to have a lot of fun with it…
I hate three-on-ones. Especially because I’m so often “the one” side.
I was trying to explain on this most American of holidays, while American politics has a clear historical affinity with the British, American culture has a historical affinity with the Germans. Of course, I was shouted down as being an absurdist—the main argument being apparently American’s are the most anti-authoritarians in the world but the Germans are a bunch of goose-steppers.
The fact that we’ve just finished eating frankfurters and hamburgers (not to mention nearly every American major beer marque) being completly trumped by by lazy idea of putting it between two pieces of bread.
But not by much.

Take a simple PHP trick and follow it on a huge tangent to the philosophy of good web architecture.
It’s an honor to be asked to share my ideas with the PHP community. When Chris and Sean asked me to write an entry for the Advent Calendar, I had to accept. Like last year, this article will be quite long. If you need something short and sweet like the other advent entries, you can just read the first section. But if you read it all, there might be a worthwhile concept buried in this logorrhea.
