Two kickass hip-hop podcasts

Contrary to what you might think if you went through my "record collection," I like hip-hop a lot. I still remember the electricity of Grandmaster Flash and UTFO, and the "America's greatest Rap" cassette with the blue cover; that I bought at Zayre's in the the Green Mountain Mall.

Anyway, the problem with hip-hop now that it's blown up, is that I'm not hip enough, anymore, to be able to track what's good and what's crap. And now that hip-hop has gone mainstream, there is reallly a ton of crap.

These are some good podcasts about new and emerging hip-hop. Neither of them is what I'd call "genius," but both rock me more often than not (though there's still a good deal of "not.")

Put the needle on the record, with Billy Jam This is the best, and also the shortest (connection?). It's a DJ throw-down.

Coffee 2 go with Noah This show has some nice lyriricists, as well as a being hosted by some talented DJs. However, these guys talk too much. Also what they spin can get a little arty.

The mixtape show rap hip hop podcast is way too commercial for me. That said, the DJ isn't afraid to totally play with the tracks; and about half of what he plays is pretty kick ass. This show is also short, which helps.

Sources of my del.icio.us bookmarks

I am trying to help everyone at my work to more effeciently share our research. First I put together a couple of visualizations of my own research. These use third party tools (which are free) including delicious, a social bookmarking service.

An elegant, updating rss visualization of anyone's tag cloud is available through Extipicious. This is my tag cloud.

I used "Top sources of del.icio.us links " to see what the most useful Web design sites really are. This list reflects Web design as an art and a lifestyle.

Logging and reporting

I wrote my first reporting script yesterday. It crawls a source tree and reports each occurrence of a specific regular expression.

Today I will be trying out SSMTP under Cygwin. I'm not sure where I can send mail from. I guess I can use one the SMTP that's already running on one of the servers.

Automated reporting has been a dream of mine for a long time. The trouble has been building a work environment where it was possible to develop a best practices document. Forming a list, of consensus best practices, took a long time. However, the reporting script was written within 24 hours of completion of the first draft of the best practices document.

It was important to write my own reporting tool, so that I could exactly tailor the output to the needs of the group. Other validators produce useful and informative warnings, which is not what I wanted. Instead, I only want to know about the things that are annoying me right now. What I want is the freedom to only have my own rules enforced. Currently there are four "deprecations" on our best practices list, and the robot scans for exactly those four patterns; in the source tree.

This is only the first step toward complete automated unit testing with every build. Again, the difficulty is not in implementing the technology. Rather the process is slow because teaching people to appreciate and embrace the technology, is not easy at all.

Anticipating NextFest

We had to wait all weekend to get to NextFest, but today is the day! A quick look at the Internets reveals these newly risen data-islands in the vicinity of "NextFest."

The musician/artist draws with different colors on a standard LP record-sized blank piece of paper. The sensors in the arm of the turntable can distinguish between five different colors (black, red, yellow, blue and green). As the turntable spins the 'platter' the music plays.

There was a cool harp made out of lasers that people could play, some kind of light up blocks, a cool fog screen thing, a "Media Mirror" that projected what was in front of it in the form of little tiny live television feeds, a cool space-time spandex pokey screen, a projected dandelion that blows away when an infrared hairdryer is pointed at it, a bunch of interactive projected games/images that move when a person tries to push them...
