Whoever fakes an illness can simply stay in bed and make everyone believe he is ill. Whoever simulates an illness produces in himself some of the symptoms.

In Hollywood, the huge billboards on Sunset Boulevard are now plastered with ads for games, not feature films. This is no surprise in itself; people have been saying for years that the game industry would surpass the movie business. But now it's a visible fact. Time to host a conference on the Moving Movie industry.

Who will be the moviestars of the future now that scientists, politicians and tourists are able to create fully fledged multimedia productions of cinematic quality on their laptops? The Super Power Point Cinema workshop I will be organizing next week at the Dutch Film Festival investigates powerpoint as tool for film production.

This Thursday I will be giving the opening lecture at the Media Technology Masters of Science Exhibition at V2_ in Rotterdam. The Media Technology MSc program, based at the University of Leiden, is a place where students are encouraged to translate personal inspirations and curiosities into their own research projects (sounds good hey?). The exhibition will show installations realized by (former) students of the Media Technology program in the last six years, as well a hands on laboratory with work in progress.

The latest addition to Coca Cola product range, called Diet Coke Plus, is not just low on suger. It is fortified with vitamins and minerals to improve your health. Better than the real thing! Is Coca Cola, which was originally marketed as a health drink, finally returning to its roots? What is this thing with engineered food anyway? My guess is soon we will all be drinking Organic Coke.

Recently, I had some free time to return to my old passion of landscape painting. Not sure if my Bob Ross TV painting skills are just dusty... Things seemed to have changed in the wilderness.
