I get invited to a good beta (Newsvine)

Guess I won't be needing that shirt - today I got an invited to the private beta of Newsvine.

In the words of Mike Davidson (previously known for his work on sIFR, now of Newsvine):
"We believe in turning news into conversation, and every page on is designed to do precisely that."
Haven't had the time to actually give it a try, but here's a screenshot of this morning's world news home page.

Screens in train – again

Nou, eindelijk die WiFi van de NS kunnen testen. En hij werkt best aardig (op de sporadische time out na). Gelijk een dilemma op Plazes. Hoe geotag je een bewegend object? Beetje jammer dat ze het alleen niet voor elkaar krijgen de juiste reisinformatie op de schermen te krijgen. Op weg naar Den Bosch is volgens de NS de volgende halte Amsterdam Centraal, tot grote verwarring van menig reiziger...

V for Vendetta: will they get it right?

After seeing several of his great graphic novels1 being turned into crappy Hollywood movies; will Alan Moore finally be honored with a proper silver screen adaptation? One of my favorite comics of all time, V for Vendetta, is being translated to a movie at the moment. The accompanying site has made me quite hopeful...
