The Internet in Brief – 2/13/09

February 13, 2010

  • If you’re the kind of wretched person that reads Kevin Smith’s twitter, you know that he gets in pointless fights with people, like, once a week.  This week, he’s raging against Southwest Airlines for kicking him off a flight for being too fat.  To be honest, you don’t even have to click that link, just know that Kevin Smith got kicked off a flight for being too fat.
  • You can apparently watch the Olympics on live stream, but only if you are a subscriber to a cable provider, which is Bull Shit.  You can’t even get the stuff that’s on regular, non-cable TV on a stream.  This is why you are  losing $200 million on this fiasco, NBC.  That and the whole Conan thing.
  • The good news is that you can spend all that time you won’t be watching the Olympics playing a fairly decent in-browser reconstruction of Quake on QuakeLive.com.  Everyone should learn from Id’s example here.  In the department of essentially making culturally significant media publicly available, I mean, not in the making brown, nigh-unplayable Bioshock retreads.
