Good news, everyone! I've been meaning to do this for at least five years, and today I'm so happy to finally announce it to the world. It's a new video series of highly curated and well-produced content called Eternally Curious, where I explore all things I'm interested in.
I'm kicking off the season with this first video: "Why Are People Stupid?".

I hope you'll enjoy it.
A few weeks ago I made a short video for the YouTube/CNN debate, asking to include water in the list of priorities at the COP15.
I was surprised to see an excerpt of my video in the official reel, which has been viewed more then 170 thousand times.
The two winners will be selected by public voting on YouTube from Nov 6-30, and may be aired in front of world-leaders and decision makers in this global TV debate on climate change. If you want to vote for my video follow these instructions:

I finally finished and presented my thesis. I'm releasing the work under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution – Noncommercial – Share Alike Works 3.0 license.
This dissertation will cover the basics of video encoding and distribution over TCP/IP, focusing on Open Source technologies and the future prospects of podcasting and video fruition in general. Particular attention will be given to the state of the art technology (MPEG-4 Part 10 specifications) and the new possibilities of HTML5 and the integration of the patent-free video codec Ogg Theora.
Today Trent said:
First of all, a sincere THANK YOU for the response to Ghosts. We are all amazed at the reaction for what we assumed would be a quiet curiosity in the NIN catalog. My faith in all of you has been restored - let's all go have coffee somewhere (my treat)!
I feel really joyful. First of all I felt really sad when he was disappointed by the fact that the Saul Willimas experiment did not go too well and that he somehow lost faith in us, the community. The risk was that he would not feel confident of a new possible business model and go back to a music label. I was enthusiast when he announced the new Ghosts albums, even more happy by the NIN went Creative Commons. One could really smell that this was coming, it was floating in the air. The whole idea of a blank canvas, the lack of descriptive song titles and the primarily textural artwork, packaging and instrumental songs was a very clear premonition of the future and the potential that this piece of music holds. Here is the complete message from Trent:
