DM Olacak Adam Open The Pod Bay Doors, MAL: The Rumpus Interview With Lori Emerson It is summer and the Rocky Mountains loom large and golden over Boulder, Colorado, where the university spreads out in matching brown-yellow stone. Schools of mountain bikers zip past the traffic on their way up, up, up—where endless blue skies and wild spaces await. But I am on my way down, down, down: I’m visiting the Media Archaeology Lab, housed in several rooms of the lower level of an ordinary-seeming house just a block or so off campus. Walking into a room full of computers that are practically pre-historic in computer-years, I feel the sort of reverence one feels at a museum—at first I want to stand at a distance and take photos. The MAL has recently opened itself up to artists’ residencies, in addition to being open to the public. I spoke to Lori Emerson by e-mail, shortly after my visit. The Rumpus: What kind of people tend to visit the Media Archaeology Lab? Emerson: Unfortunately, as of about six months ago, the MAL used up its last bit of funding. Rumpus: Zork!

Watch Cartoon Episodes & Free English Dub Anime Streaming Online 40+ awesome free Windows apps you can download in 2 seconds Depending on your internet connection you might be able to download a lot more (or a lot less) than 1Mb in two seconds - but calling this a post about apps under a meg just isn't quite as much fun! No, you don't really need to pay too much attention to an application's hard drive footprint any more. After all, when you can buy a 1.5Tb drive for less than $150US, what difference does a few megs here or there make? On the other hand, it's amazing to see what some developers are able to accomplish with a very small amount of code. There are a ton of great, free applications that have been created in less than 1Mb - I didn't fully realize just how many until I started putting this list together.
