Tue, 15 Apr 2008 19:47:45 PDT
I can’t believe that I missed this whole series all year long. The most recent story about online high school coursework sounds great (and I think I recall seeing an ad for physics teacher for the Virginla Virtual program that gets mentioned here).

When everyone’s an aggregator who’s going to do the creating?

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 19:50:46 PDT
Is the shift from producing original content to curating it a sign of the times — end times maybe — for media as we’ve known it? In an excellent piece in Advertising Age, Matthew Creamer makes the point: Aggregation, not as a sidelight but as more of a focus, is a mission change for media, and there’s a case for it, to be sure.

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 20:17:57 PDT
This is a shot from Blackbook’s May issue. Love, love, love the silver shoes. Can someone get behind me on this look? Yes, it’s very Michael Jacksonesque, but something about shiny footware has always gotten my goat. And without socks, this look transcends the typical farce appeal and takes on a life of its own by breaking all rules of shoe etiquette. I’m on the search now for some silverplated stomping gear so if you’ve got some sources, please hit us up.
