Future of Web Audio

badassjs:

I don’t often toot my own horn on this blog, but I thought this was worth a mention. Over at Official.fm Labs, we just released FLAC.js our JavaScript FLAC audio decoder, and Aurora.js, our framework to make building JS audio decoders easier. Check out our blog post over there for more…

Celebrated photographer Nadav Kander has taken portraits of everyone from President Obama to Ricky Gervais and has also turned his eye toward directing. Here he talks to Co.Create about the art of simplicity, authenticity, and leaving things unseen.

MASTER CLASS: HOW TO CREATE AN UNFORGETTABLE PORTRAIT

To know when you have enough is to be rich beyond measure.

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss acknowledged the likeness during the commentary feature on the show’s DVD box set, noting the decision to use the model was motivated by budget and not by politics. ”George Bush’s head appears in a couple of beheading scenes. It’s not a choice, it’s not a political statement. We just had to use whatever head we had around,” they said in the commentary.
HBO and Benioff and Weiss issued a pair of statements late Wednesday apologizing for the incident.
“We use a lot of prosthetic body parts on the show: heads, arms, etc. We can’t afford to have these all made from scratch, especially in scenes where we need a lot of them, so we rent them in bulk. After the scene was already shot, someone pointed out that one of the heads looked like George W. Bush,” Benioff and Weiss said. “In the DVD commentary, we mentioned this, though we should not have. We meant no disrespect to the former president and apologize if anything we said or did suggested otherwise.” (via)

In a way, it’s like the early days of search. Nobody ever thought it was quality advertising inventory — especially ad agencies — so it snuck up on people and before you knew it (less than five years!) Google was the most powerful advertising company in the world. Their display strategy looks and feels a lot like what they did in search to me — create a new paradigm value where people think there is nothing valuable at all and keep getting smarter at it until they are the most valuable piece of the pie. Then everyone has no choice but to partake. Keep in mind all their disparate data sources — Google Analytics, AdSense, Search, Maps/Local, Chrome, Gmail, Calendar, Android — that come into play. Let’s not forget the changes in Google’s privacy policy that now allows them to share and use that data across platforms. That’s a killer for pubs that has gotten very little attention.
