CANNES - Now that it has turned advertisers on to its marketing tools, Twitter is snapping at the heels of the biggest online ad gorillas, according to industry data. "When you're talking about the digital landscape, there are four dominant players that everyone knows - Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Microsoft,"...
Last time Jones was in the studio, he was chatting about his "Meridian" web series with Mystery Guitar Man, and now he has his "Tainted Love" series on Machinima, so it's safe to say he's comfortable about moving into the online space. "It's just another platform and it's just as valid as movies or TV or anything else to me," he says. "I kind of love it and it's fun for me." Back in the gaming realm, the Captain answers some fan questions about Minecraft, citing YouTube's Hypixel as the best destination for custom maps and scripted events. He also reveals that he went to this year's E3 conference and tried a few new products, which have yet to be released. Specifically, he was blown away by Oculus Rift, a 3D virtual headset. Jones chimes in to agree that the augmented reality device is awesome and that the "Tainted Love" team is even working on an AR game for the online series. Still, Jones is planted firmly in the world of traditional media, with his "Sleepy Hollow" series premiering on FOX this Fall. After having recently filmed the pilot in Charlotte, NC, Jones teases, "It's sort of like National Treasure meets a summer Blockbuster. It's really big."

The Internet poses two questions to people every day: What are you wishing (searching) for right now? How much change (acceleration) can a culture endure in a short span of time? A familiar trope in Sci-fi movies has the visitor from the past stuck in front...

If Bradley Manning can be charged with "aiding the enemy" for leaking evidence of war crimes to the public, is it a big jump for the spies to electronically monitor the 70,000 of us who've signed a petition saying that Manning is a hero?
Be warned: When you put a pair of these glasses on your gaze may be revealing more about you than you may realize -- and advertisers will soon pay a hefty premium to gain access your eyes.
Ethan Stock lived the Silicon Valley dream. He had recently sold his company to eBay and emanated the tanned skin and relaxed composure you'd expect of someone who just cashed a big corporate check. But I was surprised by what he said next. "Mediocrity is worse than failure, you know?"
It's one thing to work in the comfort of your residence with its oh-so-easy commute, but so much work today is done on the road -- and technology has gone along for the ride.

People say they'd like to influence or actively participate in their local government. In fact, according to a Civic Plus Digital Citizen Engagement survey, nearly half of those polled want to provide input in their municipal government. But turning this interest into action is one of the biggest roadblocks to implementing local community ideas. How can local municipalities tap into the increasing power of social and mobile technologies to create a community of active influencers?

With today's easy access to technology and knowledge, DIY scientists are popping up all over the United States. The fringes of scientific exploration have shifted out of the white towers of university labs and into neighborhood garages and basements. But with this come risks.
Google on Saturday said that it's building a "cross industry database" of encrypted "fingerprints" of child sexual abuse images to "enable companies, law enforcement and charities to better collaborate on detecting and removing these images, and to take action against the criminals." The database will be shared with other companies...
We've all seen the new commercial announcing the re-release of Myspace. A group of musicians let loose in a white room, complete with a cameo of Riff Raff, James Franco's muse à la Spring Breakers. But are we the only one seriously doubting this endeavor?
By Noah J. Nelson (@noahjnelson) The last time most video game players were excited about virtual reality was the 1990s. Before internet browsers were commonplace and game consoles were still actively marketed by the number of bits they could process, virtual reality held out the shimmering...

Oliver Wasow is an artist who directs our gaze. Using vernacular photographs or unique images he has fabricated in his studio, he creates a filter through which we look. By categorizing found photographs, he much like a movie editor, directs in a subtle way a narrative story for the observer.
An exhaustive 2008 academic study of polling in the years after 9/11 can help make sense of what might be seen as confused public opinion today on privacy and government surveillance. It also suggests concerns about surveillance may be underreported as some people particularly sensitive about privacy might not take surveys.
While you could easily take the cynical view and declare allocating more spectrum for wireless is long overdue, it's worth remembering that mobile broadband -- and the mobile app industry it has sparked -- is still in its infancy.
