39 Degrees North, a Beijing motion graphics studio, started developing an unconventional Christmas card this year. And once they got going, there was no turning back. Above, we have the end result – an animated version of the uber dark Christmas poem (read text here) written by Neil Gaiman, the bestselling author of sci-fi and fantasy short stories. The poem was published in Gaiman’s collection Smoke and Mirrors.
Sorry to go off topic of the dark card, but I wanted to alert people that in today’s HuffPo, Al Franken has an alarming article on how the U.S. FCC is now making rulings that threaten net neutrality for getting sites like this one on mobile broadband devices. The FCC is also not banning the “paid prioritization” that could let corporate blogs buy the fast lane, putting our sites in the slow.
The outcry from independent websites was crucial yesterday in improving the FCC ruling. But we need to stay alert and inform each other as new threats come up. We need a community of Paul Revere web bloggers.
Funny, you don’t seem sorry.
As sorry as I am for not reading.
