Podcast of the Day: Reply All

reply-all-podcast2

I’m always hunting around for good podcasts to listen to while I work, and I’m really enjoying a show by Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt called Reply All. The show is all about the Internet, covering everything from Figure One, the gruesome Instagram for doctors, to the shady world of website domain resellers. Goldman and Vogt previously created and hosted a show called TLDR (Internet lingo for ‘too long; didn’t read’) so if you fly through all 7 episodes of Reply All you can go through the TLDR archives next.

You can also find all the Reply All episodes on Soundcloud! I’ve embedded the latest episode below. If you have other recommendations for good podcasts let me know in the comments below.

Future Technology: DJ Qbert’s Extraterrestria is World’s First Interactive Album Packaging [VIDEO]

Novalia-PrintedMIDIDJQBert2

Extraterrestria is DJ Qbert’s long-awaited follow up to his groundbreaking debut album, Wave Twisters (2001), and it features a pretty next level album cover. The printed cover is actually a set of functional Bluetooth MIDI decks and DJ controller that connects to iOS and OSX, making it the world’s first interactive album packaging.

QBert’s company Thud Rumble collaborated with Algoriddim and Novalia to create an album cover that allows fans to manipulate the album (or any mp3s) by moving their fingers along the surface. Apparently most of the copies will be going to those that funded the project on Kickstarter, with a small number made available through Thud Rumble.

Watch the video below to see it in action!
