Can the internet make TV less boring? | The Verge

On a warm night in New York last week, advertisers and content producers huddled together into a huge white tent beside the Metropolitan Opera House to watch Yahoo unveil its first TV-length original web series. Purple lights and plastic champagne flutes were everywhere, and everyone in attendance seemed to know that Yahoo's event on Monday, along with about a dozen others that would occur that week, was part of the start of something huge. Yahoo was there to cap off the first night of the annual NewFronts, a series of casually linked events where new media companies attempt to woo advertisers and producers with their platforms and shows — and critically, do so just weeks before traditional TV networks host similar events of their own.

Flickr's Engagement Problem | Gadget Lab |

Despite that, Flickr is still incredibly beloved — so much so that it represents a huge opportunity for Yahoo’s newest CEO. In short, who cares about the greater Yahoo whole? The real question is, Can Marissa Mayer save Flickr, the one Yahoo property with legitimate user affinity?

When we started talking about creating a new website for women, we wanted to avoid all of the common categories that advertisers or marketers tend to put us in. We didn’t want to be a site just for moms or just for single women or working women, or any specific demo- or psychographic. We wanted to create a smart, dynamic place for women to gather, get info and to connect with each other and the world around them. The important thing wasn’t how to talk to a 32.5 year-old with 2.2 kids but how to inspire you laugh, think, get mad, empathize, and be surprised and entertained. With Shine, we want to address the commonalities that make us such an amazing group. And we want you to be a part of it, not just a bystander. This isn’t a magazine or a tv show where you are an inactive participant. You help create this site. On Shine we want you to blog (go here to start your own, it’s pretty easy), to comment on articles, to vote in our daily polls, to join in the harangue as we discuss daily events.

And Bix is center stage to all the fun. In a nutshell Bix lets you create, enter, and judge online contests.

Whilst aggregating feeds on one page is nothing new, we wanted to take a federated search concept one step further. With this beta, we have introduced personalisation elements that not only allow users to customise their view, but also to add their favourite search service (at least those who syndicate their search results via OpenSearch RSS).

Great shot - where'd you take that?

Internet Soul Portraits

by 1 other
Des sites débarrassés de tout contenu, purgés de leur substantifique moelle éditoriale, telle est la tentative de décontextualisation infographique proposée par Mark Callahan. Son Internet Soul Portraits met textuellement à nu les géants du net. Yahoo, MSN, MySpace ou Amazon, sabrés de leur enrobage syntaxique, ne laissent apparaître que des formes colorées irrémissiblement vides. Avant-goût d’une éventuelle apocalypse où seuls des vestiges HTML subsisteraient à l’intérieur d’un réseau des réseaux déshumanisé, ces captures font indéniablement penser aux mots de Heinrich Heine : "Nous ne comprenons guère les ruines que le jour où nous-mêmes le sommes devenus".
