At our first anniversary party Sunday night, we unveiled a new movie called Reticulum Rex. For those of you that missed the event, the movie can now be seen here, and it acts as a continuation of the story started in our first short, Get Creative.
A big thanks to everyone that attended the party, supported us throughout the past year, and a special thanks to Ryan Junell, Christopher Lydon, and Benjamen Walker for their incredible work in creating Reticulum Rex.Comments Off
LegalTorrents is a new site offering 5Gb of electronic music from a variety of labels, all licensed under Creative Commons. What makes this site unique is the large downloads are shared among everyone downloading, thanks to the P2P technology of BitTorrent. Once you download a client and load up a music torrent file, you’ll be downloading the file from everyone that has downloaded the file, and as you gather data others will be downloading from you. It’s an incredible technology meant to share large file downloads like these music archives and things such as linux distributions. The technology also has a checkered past due to its use for sharing illegal files, hence the name of the site, LegalTorrents.Comments Off
