Joi Ito/Ryuichi Sakamoto/bb.tv 150

Cameron Parkins, May 21st, 2008

For the 150th episode of the fantastic Boing Boing tv, Xeni et al. have digi-traveled to Japan, visiting CC CEO Joi Ito to learn how to hunt for and prepare bamboo shoots. Accompanied by a wonderful score from Ryuichi Sakamoto, the video is CC BY-NC licensed and a soothing way to begin your day. You can read about how the whole project came to fruition on Joi’s blog, including a pretty amusing anecdote about finding CC-licensed music (I, for one, think Cornelius would make wonderful musical accompaniment to bamboo hunting).

    I thought this was delightful — left a comment on Joi’s blog.

    Ooh, my reCAPTCHA says “MOZART overture”! How appropriate.
