Converge on Inverge 2007

I’m not really sure what this is. Even after reading this:

inVerge 2007 is an immersive 2 to 4-day experience starting on Sept. 6th in Portland, OR USA that focuses on emerging interactive convergence [invergence] dynamics manifesting as various global business trends including: media platform integration, brand integration, collective intelligence, participatory culture and mass collaboration.

But it has plenty of buzzwords, and that’s always good. Isn’t it?

In any case, it’s happening in Portland, September 6. And paying $495 will surely lead you to a deeper understanding of the concept than I’ve been able to garner with my quick gloss and snarky comments.

Get more information on Inverge 2007 by visiting the site or reading the Invergence blog.

Grabb.it

Grabb.it, the self-proclaimed “Giant MP3 eating rabbit,” has released some new features and a shiny new interface, according to some recent tweets from Chris Anderson.

Designed to support independent musicians, the Grabb.it service makes any Web-accessible MP3s—from local favorites, relative unknowns, and popular artists—more accessible by indexing MP3s as they are posted by artists and fans.

At the time of this posting, Grabb.it was indexing nearly 9,000 artists and more than 8,000 albums.

For more information or to register for the service, visit Grabb.it.
