Crackle crackle

Interesting article worth reading.....so are they listening to just this groups calls in Australia (including a random mates phone) or are we finally going to admit that every single call in Australia is having voice recognition processing and tagging of individual speakers are being flagged.

And all because your imaginary friend is different to his imaginary friend.

Look at what we have become as a nation and as a society.

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

Jukin Media


PizzaRat, the lovable scampering rodent that took the Internet by storm last week, now has representation in Hollywood.
An entertainment company called Jukin Media bought the rights to the 15-second video that reached over 5 million views on YouTube, a move that surprised many of the rat’s fans who retweeted gifs of the rodent in action. The guy who recorded PizzaRat, comedian Matt Little, will get paid for PizzaRat’s success.


Great business model.

As someone who has sold similar content rights before its amazing to see how technology/internet has made things like this easier.

Its amazing how the internet really has created true 'economic value' where none existed before.
