Finding fun TLDs

URL shortening services have discovered international TLDs because they aren’t as jammed as .com where every combination of 5 or fewer characters and every word in the English language is registered at a parking site.  Some new ones (t.co) have found pretty good short domains.

Films at TFF 37

Wednesday, September 15, 2010 

I saw the following films at the Telluride Film Festival.  I’ll try to get around to adding a few notes on each:

The film festival was excellent, as always.  The films selected are rarely anything less than excellent, so reviews tend to range from good to superlative.  It is probably the best film festival to attend for people who really love films.  While the environment is low-key and friendly, the festival is attended by luminaries of the film industry and most films are introduced by the directors.  Technically the festival is flawless and some of the venues are fitted with top of the line projection and sound equipment.
