Get your animated infographics on! Graphic artist Jonathan Jarvis has produced a great little short animated film explaining in plain english -the causes of the current economic crisis.  There’s been a whole load of cartoons and youtube vids attempting this – but this is definately one of the best.

Are you going to watch THE WATCHMEN?

Okay so pretty much every geek on the internet is going mental about the imminent release of the Watchmen. Based on the critically acclaimed comic book of the same name – it’s one of the only comics that got into the prestigious Time Magazine ALL TIME 100 Novels. The film got into a big of a legal snag last year, with Fox and Warner fighting over rights. I think it ended with Warner paying Fox some large sum of money.

The History of the Internet (in 8 mins)...

So you guys use it everyday, but how many of you actually know your history of the internet? I remember some of this from Year 11 Computer Studies, but this is told quite well. And it’s not long.

Still, it’s very well done. And I love stuff like this. If there was more stuff...

Korn + Infographics + Video = Edutainment...

I love info graphics, and I’ve always had a soft spot for Korn – since it’s one of the bands I grew up with. This video features both, in a amusing way. The music video was directed by Dave Meyers, who filmed the band’s previous videos (“Did My Time” and “Twisted Transistor”). The video features Korn’s temporary live drummer Joey Jordison (Slipknot, Murderdolls), and discusses the topic of devolution in a pseudo-scientific, comical fashion. Oh yeah – the song is called evolution and it was from their untitled album which came out last...
