This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    BrowserShots is a free browser emulator that generates screenshots of your website under hundreds of browser versions in a matter of minutes (faster if you’re willing to pay $29.95 a month for priority processing).

    So, if you need to know how your website design renders under an ancient release of Internet Explorer or the latest Iceweasel for Linux, BrowserShots is your saving grace, especially with BrowserPool defunct and BrowserCam closing down its service on February 1, 2013.

    If you’re looking for something more comprehensive for website testing, Cross Browser Testing is a paid service that lets you specify live testing combinations of browsers, operating systems, platforms, and plugins. Pricing is based on number of users as well as minutes per month.

    Digg: From $164 Million to $500,000

    While most of us are still slack-jawed over Facebook’s $1 billion acquisition of Instagram, the Wall Street Journal reports Betaworks buys Digg for just $500,000. Once valued at over $160 million four short years ago (when Kevin Rose ruled the world), it is a reminder how fickle the Internet can be. Don’t blink, you might miss the next bubble burst.

    There has been a lot of reporting of the dispute between Viacom and DirecTV. Since I don’t actually subscribe to DirecTV, I listened with passing interest.

    When I read that Viacom deliberately stopped streaming content online in an attempt to thwart DirecTV, it seemed like the media giant was cutting off its nose to spite its face. Moreover, it is a complete disregard to the online viewers. In terms of dollars and cents, I’m sure the fallout is inconsequential but it is just one more example of how traditional media companies view their online counterparts.

    I know, be patient. There is a bigger revolution taking place and soon we will no longer have lines between mediums. I guess still sore from how I went from programming paid by advertising to programming I pay for with advertising.
