Chromium Blog: Introducing Google Chrome Frame

by 2 others

Today, we're releasing an early version of Google Chrome Frame, an open source plug-in that brings HTML5 and other open web technologies to Internet Explorer.

With Google Chrome Frame, developers can now take advantage of the latest open web technologies, even in Internet Explorer. From a faster Javascript engine, to support for current web technologies like HTML5's offline capabilities and canvas, to modern CSS/Layout handling, Google Chrome Frame enables these features within IE with no additional coding or testing for different browser versions.

It’s day two at the Input conference in Warsaw and I wanted to share the best project I’ve seen so far. Gaza/Sderot - Life in Spite of Everything is a series of 80 films shot over 40 days — one per day in Gaza and one per day in the town of nearby Sderot. Each is a day-in-the-life style video that follows one of 14 people (seven in each town).

Gaza, Sderot, Live. | Wistful Negligence

Two minute videos from everyday for two months. Two minutes from Gaza. Two minutes from Sderot. No politics to dilute the utterly human, very connectable message(s). A keeper. The two months are over generating a total of 160 minutes.

Say goodbye nicely to peace | Lisa Goldman

On page 30, Elinor Davidov writes about a 40-episode television documentary called Gaza-Sderot, Life in Spite of Everything. Each episode features an interview with an ordinary person on either side of the border, describing daily life. The result is a fascinating combination of drama and banality that makes each episode worth watching. It was co-produced by a staff from Sderot’s Sapir College, Gaza’s Ramattan Studios and the German-French (photos and bio blurbs are here).

I've come upon an excellent site where you get a real picture of the situation. It's a web documentary on the lives of people on both sides.

Tel Aviv Rooftop: Gaza-Sderot-Yaffo

If you're interested in getting to know the people of Sderot and of Gaza, I can recommend the Arte project of short films 'Gaza/Sderot - Life in spite of everything' . Many of the people you will see in it (on both sides) have now been forced to leave their homes

As we are getting regular news on the war on the Gaza strip, we may often lack background information. I’d like to share a very good set of small videos on the daily life of 6 peoples in Gaza and Sderot (in Israel, close to the border of the Gaza strip) despite the war situation. It happens to have been broadcast during one month just before the war made the headlines. It is called “Gaza-Sderot”, and it is available here.

WOMEN'S LENS - Un coup d'oeil de femme: Gaza/Sderot

With all the information being thrown at us, I thought i'd share some insight I've been getting from this blog For the whole year. also, there's a program chronicling the lives of the people on both sides that finished just before the latest escalation of violence:

make it known: Worldly Reading/Watching

My research led me to 'Gaza Sderot - Life In Spite of Everything', a web-documentary by a French company. It follows the lives of men, women and children in two cities on the Israeli Palestinian border. Every day since October 26, 2008, two 2minuted videos are uploaded, one from each side. They are viewed side by side, giving a truly real look at the daily lives of these people. Despite the many dangers (air bombings and rocket attacks, power cuts and lack of food or medicine) the people never stop working, loving, and dreaming. It's been really amazing to get to know the people and follow their lives, and contrast them with how good we have it here in Canada. It's all very inspiring, and makes me want to do something.

Peace in the Middle East - Gaza Sderot: Short Films From Both Sides of the Border

A German television studio has produced a series of two minute videos from Gaza and Sderot, an Israeli city neighboring Gaza. The clips reveal what the news cameras do not: snapshots of daily life. It's an amazing behind the scenes look at the individuals behind the labels of "Israeli" or "Palestinian."

what a challenging concept. and extra interesting, as Sderot is a city that also appears in the 2028 story. now it suddenly is there, just a click away.

I take from this that Gaza’s population doesn’t fear genocide, however insufferable the situation. I really resent Abunimah persisting with this.


Another must-see is the Gaza/Sderot video documentary project set up by ARTE (French-German cultural TV station), which is currently showing 60 two-minute videos shot in Gaza and Sderot. The videos are organised by day and shown in pairs - Gaza on one side of your screen and Sderot from the same time on the other - so you get a sense of the two populations as contemporaries as well as neighbours.

'Gaza Sderot' (2008), subtitled 'Life in spite of everything', is an ambitious web doc portraying the daily life of twelve people in Gaza (Palestine) and Sderot (Israel), from October 26 to two days ago. The state of the art website, by Upian, let's you browse scenes by time, place, people and topics -- all the while visually emphasizing the border cutting through the two places.

This series of online micro-docs broadcast daily from two war-ravaged Israel-Palestine border towns, should snuff out any lingering doubters of the Webdoc genre. The humour, resourcefulness, and resigned acceptance with which the twelve featured characters go about their daily lives provide a poignant contrast to the ‘suicide bombers vs snipers’ theme favoured by news reporters. An immediate, non-linear documentary experience which invites public discussion (case in point: the empassioned discussion on the related Facebook group), this visually striking project will no doubt open up the age-old conflict to curious, new audiences.

Official Google Blog: Google Calendar Sync

This was my life for a whole year before we started working on Google Calendar Sync, a 2-way synching application between Google Calendar and the calendar in Microsoft Outlook. I was probably the most excited person on the team when we started developing it, because now I can access my calendar at home or on my laptop, on Google Calendar or in Outlook.
