Obama/Biden=Mac; a NYTimes dream; the YouTube “actually good” video contest

I came across three things right in a row that I want to post this morning, but I don’t have time to write/talk about any of them. Luckily, they mostly speak for themselves.

First off, yet another reason to like Obama/Biden: they are apparently both Mac users. See this piece, and the boing boing entry on it.

Second, via Mark Maynard and an Facebook entry, there is this spot-on dream/wishful thinking of a July 4, 2009 New York Times. Yes, I want all of these things too. But let’s be careful and not have too many unrealistic expectations for the President-elect. Bush left a hell of a mess to clean up.

And finally, the Onion announces a (fake?) YouTube contest where users will win $100,000 if they make a video that is “actually good:”

YouTube Contest Challenges Users To Make A ‘Good’ Video

I gotta show this one to my 328 students who are trying to make videos right now, good or otherwise.
