Hey, I’ve learned you gotta write a catchy headline to even have a chance to get attention. Even then, this one will probably barely get noticed in the river of Tweets and other noise rushing by. (UPDATE: I changed the headline, cause many people complained about it).
But there’s a point here, over on Building43 we’ve been getting around and Adobe showed us Flash running on a set top box with full glorious HDTV. Did you catch that video? Probably not. How will you see sex in the future? HDTV, so the headline sorta fits. And, if you’re here for porn or something, sorry if I fooled you.
In the first couple of weeks we have a bunch of other videos over on Building43 that you might have missed:
Famous author Don Tapscott talks to us about growing up digital. He wrote a book on the topic and you might like his thoughts.
Mark Zuckerberg gives his first video interview in Facebook’s new building and gives his dad, a dentist, business advice.
Are you a famous person or a brand that wants to use Facebook like Oprah and many others do? Caitlin O’Farrell works with celebrities on their Facebook pages and she gives us her best tips.
Four Seasons has 82 hotels worldwide and Kelly Nelson is the first in the chain to get permission to use Twitter and other social networks to represent the brand. Hear her talk about the experience.
Luke Kilpatrick shows us how to create an iPhone mockup in Adobe Fireworks.
You might have heard that Zappos is cool, but after taking the tour you’ve heard nothing until you hear from the CEO in this conversation with Rackspace’s Chairman.
Uservoice is a cool startup in Santa Cruz. Why are they cool? Their service helps companies get closer to their customers. Here you meet the founder and get some insights into what makes UserVoice something that brands are praising.
You’ve probably heard of Fred Wilson if you’ve been on the tech and business blogs. He’s a New York venture capitalist who invested in Twitter, among others. Here he spends 45 minutes with me explaining what he’s seeing happen in the 2010 web world.
If that’s not enough we have blogs from Wes Wilson on branding, Bruce Hughes on small business weapons, Nan Palmero on simplification of technology and the role it plays in business, Michelle McGinnis (she played a huge role in our site’s design) talking about embedding FriendFeed, Michael Sean Wright made a video documentary of our launch party, and Guy Kawasaki talks about the new economics of entrepreneurship.
So, what’s next? Well, Rocky Barbanica is editing up a storm. This week we leave for London to visit a bunch of technology companies to see if we can find ways we can help your web business.
We’re specifically looking for people who can help teach other people about how to do the 2010 web. Are you interested? Please join our Building43 FriendFeed group and leave a note there or, if you want something a little more private, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And sorry about the misleading headline, hope you found some sexy videos here anyway. Hey, to me ideas, technology, and geeks are sexy. I’m a geek, what can I say?
