Wow time flies. The xbox 360 was launched 4 years ago this month so IGN has posted the top 25 games for it. Xmas list! http://j.mp/8vj9kx
Best Buy black Friday deal has the PS3 for $300 including Ratchet & Clank and Little Big Planet for free. Tempting, but Best Buy at 5am? No.
“It aggressively courts the art history boner,” Arthur Giles on Assassin’s Creed II. Not a line I’d expect in a videogame review. Awesome.
“One of the finest games I’ve ever played,” @ryanodonnell reviewing Assassin’s Creed 2 on CO-OP. Already talk of it being game of the year.
Ducks beat Arizona in 2nd overtime! Incredible. Now the winner of the civil war game between the Ducks and Beavers will go to the Rose Bowl.
Apple’s ‘up-to-the-minute apps’ ad on back of today’s Time features Tweetie 2 alongside heavyhitters like CNN and NYT. Way to go @atebits!
I saw Brief Interviews with Hideous Men at the Alamo Drafthouse over dinner. Cool indie movie at a cool venue. Austin rookie no more.
OH in Austin: Oh my god look at that Crate & Barrel!
Amazingly few MacBooks at the Convio summit. Only seen one so far. Is Apple not strong in the non-profit sector?
Speaker Gilbert Tuhabonye survived the killing of Tutsi by the Hutu tribe. Amazing story of escape, the Olympics and his charity work.
An agency pitched me web services today and casually tossed out how they’re ready for Web 4.0 which is coming next year. Sure it is pal.

Saying phrases over and over like ‘move the needle’ and ‘pain points’ makes me stop listening to you. Talk like a human.
In Austin for the Convio Summit for work. Interested to see if there are upgrades in store. Please let there be upgrades in store…
NYT: Users of the popular word “douche” defend its use, noting that it’s invoked, usually with the suffix “bag.” Awesome. http://j.mp/1suwCd
After a night with Modern Warfare 2, I say it’s basically a “Holy Shit!!” simulator. It reaffirms that I’m not cut out to be a soldier.
OK, that link no longer works. The article has been pulled from the couple sites it was on. Trying to find a cached version and will post.
Another: Goldman Sachs is “vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money”
Quote from last link. Goldman Sachs “dream[s] up impossibly convoluted schemes to pick the American carcass clean of its loose capital.”
Finally free of Rolling Stone’s print-edition-only embargo, Matt Taibbi’s anger-inducing The Great American Bubble Machine http://j.mp/UnQ8K
I *hate* that Windows will install updates and restart without my permission. It tries to put everything back like it was but always fails.
