A little over a week ago, this years Vivid Sydney Festival kicked off in earnest. If you’re not familiar with the event, Vivid is a celebration of Light, Music and Idea’s and has become an annual phenomenon that attracts 800,000+ visitors to the city. The centrepiece of the festival would have to be the light projections that transform many of Sydney’s landmark buildings into wonderful and surreal canvasses of colour and movement. According to the Vivid website, this years Sydney Opera House light show was created by ’59 Productions’ and takes viewers on a journey through time, art, architecture and human achievement. The shots in this post don’t really capture the storyline as its a flowing animation that runs for some 12 minutes. That aside, I hope you get a sense of some of the spectacle that we’re currently being treated to down at the harbour. Fingers crossed, I hope to…

That’s a nice question. Actually most of the newbies in Linux world don’t know that Live CD and alternate CD are two different things because of the way the install the operating system.
Live CD is generally provides graphical user interface (GUI) and hence you don’t have to enter any UNIX command to run the applications.
Alternate CD files are different and while installation you don’t generally get the graphical interface. While installation you will see Blue and gray screens which receives only keyboard inputs. Your mouse won’t work. (At least I have seen that way).
So in short, you need to download a separate Ubuntu file. Search for “alternate” in the file name and then burn it on a CD/DVD and follow the instructions above.
Hope this information helps you understand the difference between Live and Alternate CD.

Crossposting : Noise or Buzz

Cross posting is good when you want to broadcast something, so that all your friends on various networks get the news. For example, a link to your latest blog post or something like that.
But if everything is being cross-posted, then it creates noise.
That’s why while setting cross-posting features, one has to be really careful. You should be selective while cross-posting.
This is the reason, I use Friendfeed to update my Twitter status, Twitter to update my Facebook status, and so on. And I selectively update my FF status.
Posterous allows you to autopost, but in my opinion it creates noise on all the connected services as well as a threat of creating DUPLICATE content. If the content is being autoposted on your blog too. Isn’t it.
But people might have different opinion about it.
Let me know your views about it.

Newspaper Future doesn’t look bright

“One of her many lessons was “always be aware of what’s going on around you”. After homework and chores were done, it was time to sit down and read the paper.”
This all being aware is now changing with the use of Twitter and likes. People are getting news from Twitter and Facebook etc because it is Live and tells you what is happening NOW. Not the old news which you read in Newspaper.
In my opinion, “Newspaper is – what happend yesterday. Whereas Twitter etc. – what is happening now.”
That is technology innovation which has changed how people like to know about what is going on. Newspaper need to build upon on that so that when people get the news, it is not old.
Or may be they need to move away from News and become Editorial columns which people can read when they want to. However that place is also captured by Blogs.
So the future for Newspaper doesn’t really look bright, unless they innovate something different.

Hope you agree.
