I have to take off at least a few days; this is my last post for at least a few days. I didn't want to leave you without posts for a few days without giving you a peek at forthcoming projects. Because of my loaded schedule--work, a film project (more on this later), and other things, I have worked as efficiently as I could on this blog. You'll notice that I have made a lot of "googlebomb" posts. The simple reason: googlebombs are easy and effective tools to deal with the hard right; googlebombs are great tools for culture jamming and media hacking. The radical right is heavily funded in this country, but they have one persistent enemy: the truth. When we googlebomb a hard right operative (and major league douchebag) like David Bossie, then we own his name, at least when it comes to web search engines. In the past few months, we have had successful googlebombs against Bossie, The Swift Boat Liars, Christopher Ruddy, Jerome Corsi, Tammy Bruce, "most liberal senator", Colin McNickle, Sean Hannity, and others. I have heard from good sources that some of these googlebomb targets are shitting bricks and fit to be tied about what I have done. This is great news. I am in the process of creating a site devoted to googlebombing. It's not up and running yet but I am working on it.
I also have an indie film project in production. The time is not right to disclose the topic but I'm sure that fans of this blog will like it. I have shot a little over an hour and it's hot stuff so far. In the limited time that I have been in production, I have had some big names who agreed to be interviewed--and a couple really big names I have already interviewed. Thank God for the Canon XL-1 and other digital video cameras (as well as the people who own them and who are shooting for me for peanuts).
Finally, I have two media hacking projects in the works. The big one in the conceptual stages now, but everyone I have discussed the project with has said it is dynamite stuff. The small one I should have ready to unveil in the next month or so.
