Full-Motion Video On eInk Screen

I guess I would have been more impressed if it had been an actual YouTube video with people. As it is, without seeing the original animation, it’s difficult to really tell what’s going on there — aside from all the ghosting. It makes the animation look like it was done in pencil — which is why I need to see the original.

I suppose some owners of the rooted Nook Touch would like to see a YouTube video now and then, except there’s one problem with that: There’s no speaker in the Nook Touch! And no headphone jack.

Twitter Acquires Posterous, Not webdoc

Welcoming the Posterous team to the flock

Posterous is Joining the Flock at Twitter

Last year I did a series of posts (see bottom) in which I discussed the various shortcomings of Twitter. It was a different time then. Google Plus had just popped onto the scene and people thought it would eat Twitter for lunch.

That didn’t happen.

Google screwed up.

One of the things I suggested was for Twitter to buy webdoc, a really advanced multimedia system (think iBooks Author, but on the Internet!).

That didn’t happen. Today, Twitter announced it would do Posterous instead.

And although the acquisition is framed as a hunt for talent, I’d expect Twitter to eventually incorporate some permanence into the system — if they have half a brain. We’ll see what develops.
