Mr. A for Effort 3/27: 1938 Media

Tue, 03/27/2007 - 18:33 -- rprice

Ryan Price with a Beard gives a shout out to Loren Feldman from 1938Media.com and a handful of people on my personal A-List. I also reveal my discovery of Likemind.us and therefore part of the inspiration to start my own group is thanks to Loren. How crazy is that?

I thought about using R*vv*r to post this video, but when you even post their URL in MySpace it comes out like ... instead of what it should be, and I occasionally re-post to MySpace. For Orlando Scene TV it is worth the effort, but not for these.

For the uninitiated, here are the Alex and Gavin I name check in the video - they do cool stuff like Emurse and the pop-ification of Twitter. If you don't know Josh Hallet yet, just go subscribe to his blog - don't think twice. He put on the BlogOrlando UnConerence, which was a huge pot-stirring event here in town.

Loren and I also have another very obvious thing in common: "Media.com" -- 1938Media.com, RyanPriceMedia.com, eh? Keep up the good work, man

The A-List Works Harder Than You Do

Fri, 03/23/2007 - 11:07 -- rprice

This guy Loren from 1938 media - which to my knowledge is a meta-blogosphere videoblog endeavor, but different than Irina's GETV - has put out another post that begs to be reblogged. The first exposure I had to these guys was when they had their Chinese correspondent say something about Jason Calacanis and Robert Scoble in Chinese - both of them reblogged it. A lot of blogs end up getting lots of traffic because they flame a band, film or company, but these guys get it by saying something nice and showing off that they are friends with the A-Listers.

Now, Loren has told us why the A-Listers got their A-List status, and he's totally right:

I actually got linked on Valleywag once because I said something nice about Jason, and Nick Denton (or whomever) Technorati'd me. The 1938 effect is quite a bit different than the Valleywagg effect... Valleywag is writing about you, Loren wants you to write about him.

Twitterholic - Top 100 Twitter Users

Mon, 03/19/2007 - 12:03 -- rprice

I doubt me if I'll ever make it on this list, but I wanted to give props to Alex and Gavin for creating yet another popularity contest/time waster that seems to be a bit worthwhile... Twitterholic.com

What I mean by worthwhile is, well, now Calacanis knows who to pay for twittering. This is like the top 100 Digg or Reddit users, whose time he bought to post news to Netscape. Welcome to the beginning of the moentization of Twitter. It either warms the blood or boils it, depending on your relationship with microblogging/status/open IM/bulletin... stuff.

Also, interesting move by the PostGorillans to rename themselves Humidity Labs.

Also, props to 30 boxes for Twapper (WAP-enabled twitter) and Dave Troy for Twittervision. Very cool stuff.

Fleeing the Country

Sun, 03/18/2007 - 11:11 -- rprice

It's official: I'm emigrating to England for 12 days at the end of April. The main reason for this trip is to hang out with my super-awesome girlfriend. Bonus points for finally getting to meet Aleshia, one of my Liberatr bloggers, in person.

Any thoughts on where I should go, what I should eat, which brand of chocolate to bring home, which ales, lagers and porters to drink? I don't really want to do the London Eye, and apparently the National Gallery is not as exciting as some people make it sound. I was there about 13 years ago, so I have seen Parliment, Tower of London, Dover, even a few castles.

I am excited about getting to go to shows - Wicked, Avenue Q, maybe Equus (or as I like to call it - "Harry Potter and the Wang of Destiny"). I will be very excited to see the public markets and gardens - that's what I loved about Europe when I was a kid - the greenery, the history, the texture and the way that life operates on this completely different wavelength than America and especially Central Florida, where I have spent my entire developmental life.

Be certain I will be online, posting pictures, videos and Twitters whenever possible. I'll drink a pint for you. Cheers!

The February and March FILMSLAM events were also a great time, we highly recommend going out and supporting local film to the tune of a $5 bill. If you want to find out more about people producing video and film locally, our other blog, Orlando Video, allows creatives in Orlando to send us links to their video on the web. We have featured E.R. Jess' group, Feedbag Films, several times now.

New Header Image

Wed, 03/07/2007 - 11:48 -- rprice

I don't think anyone who regularly reads this blog thinks they won't see posts like this every now and again - so to the people reading this post via RSS (and a few on email), visit the site and leave a comment about the header image I just put together waiting for some video to capture.

Link to the old image for comparison. I could tell you the message I'm trying to get across with the image, or you can figure it out for yourself.

Like the last header, I took this picture with my built-in iSight and edited it with the Gimp.

Central Florida (not Disney)

Mon, 03/05/2007 - 08:05 -- rprice

From alexrudloff.com:

I look out the window of my apartment downtown though, and while its not very diverse, I can't see any franchises or mcmansions. I see an amplitheater that does Shakespeare every year, a park that has some sort of festival once a month and an amazing neighborhood known for its night life. Down the road is an antiques district. Not to far away is a collection of museums ranging from folk art to a science center. There's a top notch history center right in the midst of downtown as well. We have an NBA team, the 7th largest university in the country, and regularly play host to a number of college bowl games. Orlando itself is a thriving region with great food and fun things to do. There is much life outside of Disney and Orlampa just as there is much life outside of the Strip in Vegas.

I am SO glad there are no McDonald's downtown - Subway, that's an anomaly for now. Tijuana Flats started local at least, and Pita Pit is so alternative I give them buku brownie points.

This is why we have Liberatr and Orlando Scene TV and Orlando Video and Blogging Fringe and You Can't Spell Crapface Without PFA and Liberatr Presents. This is also why we have a healthy (albeit unconnected) blogging and podcasting community outside of my own personal efforts, hence Florida Creatives.
