Media Monday Edmonton: Update #26

Here is my latest update on local media stuff:

And here are a few non-local items I found interesting:

  • I think the Little Printer is neat idea, though it’s a novelty at best. One of the things it enables is a personalized “newspaper”, printed on-demand just for you. The BERG Cloud that powers it is much more interesting, however.
  • The Journalism Foundation launched today with a mission to promote, develop and sustain free and independent journalism throughout the world. You can read more about it at The Independent.
  • Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO drama about cable news will be called “Newsroom”.
  • The new Xbox 360 dashboard goes live tomorrow. I can’t wait! With over 50 million consoles sold and more than 35 million Xbox Live memberships, the Xbox appears to have the best chance of ushering in “the future of TV.”

  1. Yeah… someone needs to sit down with that YegNewsBabes guy before female news reporters start going missing. Seriously, this dude is obsessed. Or he’s 12, not sure which one.
