Up Front Sunday Morning:
The Newsletter is back after my having spent last weekend teaching a two day seminar on soundscape studies at the University of Oregon.
A reminder that Webvisions 2003 takes place in Portland on July 18.Don't miss the Northwest's creative conference for designers, developers and Web Professionals! Explore the future with the Web's leading experts and visionaries in design, user experience, eMarketing and content creation.
WebVisions will be held at the Oregon Convention Center, July 18, from 9am to 7pm To register or find out more about a special showing of student web and multimedia work, go to http://www.webvisionsevent.org/
OSCON (Open Source Convention) will be held at the Portland Marriott Hotel from July 7-11. Those interested in programming may want to participate. There are convention tracks focusing on Java, MySQL, XML, Apache and other software apps.
The Software Association of Oregon's Eugene chapter will hold its July meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Wild Duck Music Hall, 169 W. Sixth Ave., in Eugene. Mike Joyce, information technology manager at scanner maker PSC Inc., will give a presentation.
A new listing of film and video competitions is posted under the Opportunities section of this newsletter.
"Thumbsucker" an indie adaptation of the Walter Kirn novel starring Keanu Reeves, Mathew McConaughey, Tilda Swinton and Vincent D'Onofrio - will begin filming in the Beaverton area July 9. The production will provide jobs for at least 75 local film and video crew people and for 300 actors and extras (need a job?). The film, directed and written by Mike Mills will be released in 2004.
Speaking of films I would like to recommend "Whale Rider" an unusual story of a Maroi girl discovering her future as tribal chief in contemporary New Zealand. No cliches in a drama that could be cliche ridden.
Are you writing a screen play? You might want to take a look at Storybase. This software works for screenplays, stage plays, novels or short stories. It doesn't write stories. It acts as a mentor, a royalty-free collaborator and stimulator of the imagination. It contains over 2,000 narrative situations each suggesting multiple story possibilities.
Finally, congratulations to former Proscenia Interns Aaron Graham and Cory Davidson who were married on July 4th. We wish them a long and happy life together.

DID YOU KNOW? Facts about Oregon Media Personalities
Matt Giraud is a film director and award-winning columnist whose work has appeared in Fortune, Northwest Palate and Willamette Week, among other publications, and as commentary on National Public Radio's All Things Considered. He's also a principal of Grapheon Design, an award-winning, traditional and new media communications firm based in Portland, Oregon. He was recently awarded the Mayor's Spirit of Portland.
Giraud has produced the documentary Life in Vine a video documentary that examines the particularly suspenseful year of Oregon wine making that was 1999. Life in Vine is a film that pops the cork off the fussy reputation of the wine industry focusing on the humble self-made people who got where they are through years of hard work, but that largely contradict the stereotypes.
DISCUSSION: Apple's Panther OSX
No special feature this week. However, the following edited item from the Apple Newsletter may be of interest to those working in graphic media using Apple's OS X.
On June 23, Steve Jobs kicked off the 2003 Worldwide DevelopersConference by offering a sneak preview of the next major release of Mac OS X.
Putting Mac OS X Panther through its paces, Jobs highlighted its new user-centric Finder; Pixlet, a studio-quality QuickTime codec that enables video playback at film resolution on personal computers; and iChat AV, revolutionary software that makes personal video
conferencing as easy as online chatting--just some of the 100 new features of Panther.
Jobs also unveiled iSight, a state-of-the-art video camera that weighs just 2.3 ounces and works seamlessly with iChat AV. And one more thing. The Power Mac G5: The world's fastest personal computer with the world's first 64-bit desktop processor. Combine this advanced processor with the industry's fastest frontside bus, the highest bandwidth system architecture, and plenty of high-speed memory--and the Power Mac G5 outperforms the fastest Pentium 4-based systems in both industry-standard SPEC CPU2000 benchmark tests and real-world professional applications. Couldn't make it to San Francisco for the event? Not to worry. You can catch the entire keynote presentation in QuickTime.

LAPTOPS OUTSELL DESKTOPS FOR FIRST TIME. Sales of laptop computers accounted for more than 54% of the total retail computer sales in May, with laptop outpacing desktop sales for the first time ever, according to NPD Group. In comparison, laptops represented less than 25% of total sales as recently as January 2000. May also marked the first time that sales of LCD screens surpassed traditional CRT monitors. Analysts contribute the shift to consumers' desire for laptops' "portability, appealing form factors and attractive design" as well as more competitive pricing, says NPD analyst Stephen Baker. In addition, "LCDs'
slim profile and sleek looks are more appealing." (AP 2 Jul 2003) http://apnews.excite.com/article/20030702/D7S1HP5G1.html
MICROSOFT'S E-BOOK GIVEAWAY. In an effort to boost adoption of its Microsoft Reader software, the software leader is offering free e-book downloads over a 20-week period.
Microsoft Reader has received 6 million downloads since its debut in August 2000, but it faces an uphill battle against e-book market leader Adobe. Over the five-month promotion period, Microsoft Reader users will be able to download three e-book bestsellers a week from the company's Web site via a Pocket PC, a Tablet PC, a laptop or a desktop.

MUSIC AND VIDEO IN SOFT DRINK CUPS. Music promoters are hoping to create new stars by sampling their work in "enhanced" mini-CDs embedded in the lids of soft drink cups at movie theaters and theme parks. About 4.8 million such CDs enhanced with video clips will be distributed nationwide to show off a new pop singer named Rachel Farris. Similar promotional campaigns have been designed for companies such as United Airlines, CocaCola and Victoria's Secrets.

WIRELESS GIVES POORER NATIONS CHANCE TO CATCH UP...In a speech prepared for a UN conference on the social implications of wireless communications technologies, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan declared that wireless Internet access has "a key role to play everywhere,
but especially in developing countries and countries with economies in transition... It is precisely in places where no infrastructure exists that Wi-Fi can be particularly effective, helping countries to leapfrog generations of telecommunications technology and infrastructure and empower their people."

RECORDING INDUSTRY TO MUSIC SWAPPERS: WE'RE GONNA GET YOU. Cary Sherman, president of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), says his organization plans to file at least several hundred lawsuits within the next 10 weeks against individual computer users who share substantial amounts of copyrighted music online. The RIAA, which represents the five major music labels, will start gathering evidence against file-swappers by using software to scan the public directories of peer-to-peer networks such as KaZaA and Grokster. Sherman says, "A lot of people think they can get away with what they are doing because peer-to-peer file sharing allows them to hide behind made-up screen names. They are not anonymous. The law is very clear. What they are doing is stealing." (New York Times 26 Jun 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily http://partners.nytimes.com/2003/06/26/technology/26MUSI.html

REAL ESTATE: Realtor.com gets 9 out of 10 of the listings of houses for sale...

APPLE TOUTS NEW PC AS FASTEST ON THE MARKET. Apple Computer's new Power Mac G5 is the speediest on the market, says the company, which in the past has been criticized for selling computers that are more expensive and relatively slower than PCs based on Wintel technology. "We're coming up from behind" on Intel machines, says Apple CEO Steve Jobs, citing the G5's new high-speed microprocessor designed by Apple and IBM and manufactured by IBM. The G5's 64-bit chip boasts a clock speed of 2 gigahertz and Apple is hoping its new high-performance machine will boost revenues at a time when sales have stalled amid the soft economy. "A major reason not to buy the Power Mac -- that it was slow as a dog -- is gone now," says one industry analyst.

QUANTUM LEAP?A Canadian company called D-Wave Systems, which is working to develop a quantum computer that could calculate millions of times faster than current computers, has received funding from one of Silicon Valley's best-known venture firms, Draper Fisher Jurvetson (FFJ). Quantum computers could be anywhere from 5 to 50 years in the future; they would be fast enough to model atomic forces inside a single molecule and could be used to design molecules for the creation of new drugs.

IS YOUR PRIVACY INVADED BY THE 'BLACK BOX' IN YOUR CAR? A recent survey found that most people are unaware that many later-model automobiles are equipped with "black box" recording devices (called "data event recorders") which are capable not only of triggering the release of accident airbags but also of recording driving data (such as speed of the car) in the last few seconds before a crash. Such information is increasingly being used as evidence in criminal and civil cases related to the accident, as part of "normal reconstruction" of what happened. But civil libertarians are balking. Defense attorney Bob Weiner calls the black boxes "a tremendous invasion of privacy," and David Sobel, general counsel for the Electronic Privacy Information Center, say: "The real issue is one of notice, and the problem arises from the fact that information is being collected about people's driving behavior without them knowing. If drivers knew about the device, they could at least then begin asking questions." (USA Today 29 Jun 2003)
