Zattoo - TV to GoI've just been Zattood, meaning that I can now watch real time local TV on my computer. So now I have BBC World and CNN and Swiss television and other channels from various European countries, actually 58 stations ... right now I'm watching Sharon Stone at Larry King live ...
Swiss technology started up Zattoo a year ago with 5 downloadable channels. To date, more than
It works via peer-to-peer technology, indicating the appropriate selection of television channels based on the country you live in, something that no Internet TV app has done successfully to date. After registering for a Zattoo account online and installing the client (really, that's not an issue and all is free), you'll get an overview of the available TV stations in your locality.
From the publisher of Zattoo: "Zattoo is live TV on your PC - it's the football game as you chat, the news as you email, and Lost as you pay your bills. Zattoo is also TV when you don't have a TV - it's the channels you want, when you want, where you want."
Here you find the List of channels on Zattoo.

Camille Seaman Photography - The Last Iceberg
The Last Iceberg is one piece of a larger project entitled "Melting Away" which documents the polar regions of our planet, their environments, life forms, history of human exploration and the communities that work and live there.
Nick Cave once sang, "All things move toward their end." Icebergs give the impression of doing just that, in their individual way much as humans do; they have been created of unique conditions and shaped by their environments to live a brief life in a manner solely their own. Some go the distance traveling for many years slowly being eroded by time and the elements; others get snagged on the rocks and are whittled away by persistent currents. Still others dramatically collapse in fits of passion and fury.
The Last Iceberg chronicles just a handful of the many thousands of icebergs that are currently headed to their end. I approach the images of icebergs as portraits of individuals, much like family photos of my ancestors. I seek a moment in their life in which they convey their unique personality, some connection to our own experience and a glimpse of their soul which endures.
These images were made in both the Arctic regions of Svalbard, Greenland, and Antarctica.
