Weekend Web Wroundup - Part I

Posted By on Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 12:04 PM

Welcome to our first installment of what may (possibly) be a regular feature here on All Shook Down - the Weekend Web Wroundup. GET IT?

You see, the name mimics the "www" of the "world wide web" and therefore it...oh FINE. I couldn't think of anything better so Weekend Web Wroundup it is.

The WWW (see? it's working!) will "wroundup" the weekend's most interesting tech and social media news in a convenient list form. Feel free to print this list out and tape it to your internet portal device. Or, you could just del.i.cious it if you wish to save trees and also, if you don't live in 1997.

Without further ado, let's get to the wrounding up!

Gorilla penis! 4chan

infiltrated the Twitters with a spammy #gorillapenis hashtag, making it

a trending topic, and upsetting anti-gorilla penis groups everywhere.

Twitter accounts suspended!

Speaking of #gorillapenis spam, many Twitter accounts were suspended

and then reinstated over the weekend for no apparent reason other than

"human error" according to the tech folks at Twitter HQ. Some suspect

the 4chan spam had something to do with it.

Blogging saved the world! Or something.

Micro projectors on the iPhone! Rumors abound about the possibility of a wall projection device for the iPhone. A/V geeks pee their pants. Again.

Sarah Palin sues everyone via Twitter and Facebook! Seriously. Tell that to your friend who thinks social media is all about cats and lunch tweets.

And that's it for the inaugural installment of WWW! Feedback most welcome in the comments.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
