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.

    Viddler Moving On

    Viddler sent out emails today stating that they will be closing all personal and free accounts, focusing exclusively on video for business, no longer trying to compete with YouTube and Vimeo. I was one of the early adopters of Viddler back in 2007 but I also own a MySpace account and honestly, I cannot recall the last time I’ve logged into either one. The only worthwhile note is this sort of thing reminds me just how old I’m getting. Quick, open up a SnapChat account.

    It’s Christmas! Yeah! We made it through the holiday season with most of our sanity intact.

    Thanks Mylie for Helping Oxford Twerk It Out

    Although the term “twerking” has been around longer than Miley Cyrus herself, thanks to her performance at the VMA (and the media vomit that immediately ensued), now even my grandparents are twerking it (figuratively speaking); and now that it is in the Oxford Dictionaries Online, they know how to use the word in proper context.

    Hey, what other words can I now frustrate my Scrabble buddies with?

    The SourceFed does a la de da job summarizing (above) but find the complete list atĀ Oxford Dictionaries Online.

    Hasbro is going to need to add a colon tile.
