Smartphones are dominating Flickr stats - the rapid turnaround on sharing shots seems to be the key. How long before SLRs have social media functionality - Canon F1000 Facebook anyone?
Danny Madskillz is the more accurate spelling.
I’ve got a bad feeling about this. Now even if you’re not on Facebook you’ll end up ‘in’ Facebook whether you like it or not:

Tweetage Wasteland on the distraction of always having a recording device handy. Video camera tourists have long suffered from this, too intent on capturing the moment to actually enjoy it.

Survey of US commercial radio rotation of Kate Perry:
- Depressing stat #1: 39 minutes between KP plays
- Depressing stat #2: 184 unique songs per week
- Depressing stat #3: 7 songs per hour average
So say each hour you get 25 minutes of music, of which one is bound to be KP and the others you will certainly have heard before, and 35 minutes of guff & garbage.
So, no matter where you are, if you have a radio, you can tune into the local top-40 radio station, and you’ll need to wait, on average, only about 40 minutes until a Katy Perry song comes on. Good to know.
Commercial radio is a travesty. All hail local, government, and indie radio.

Did you hear that, Activision? We demand Zork in every game you release.
