Hiro Nakamura: Actor… Coder


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 26th, 2006 in Entertainment

teleporter1ok.jpgPublished in Wired magazine, here's the story of Hiro, my most favorite character on the show Heroes.

Millions of viewers of NBC's Heroes know actor Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, the bored young Japanese office worker who discovers he has the power to alter time and teleport. What they probably don't know is that he's been working behind the scenes for years as one of Industrial Light & Magic's top programmers.

In an ensemble cast that features solid acting all around, Oka steals the show every time he's on the screen. The show literally has his Hiro living out the exploits of his own comic book, 9th Wonders.

Since graduating from Brown University in 1997, Oka has worked on more

Marine Letter Home. The Truth About Iraq.


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 7th, 2006 in Stuff

Posted in TIME magazine recently, this original letter from an anonymous marine is a must read. Here it is:

The Secret Letter From Iraq
A Marine's letter home, with its frank description of life in "Dante's inferno," has been circulating through generals' in-boxes. We publish it here with the author's approval

Written last month, this straightforward account of life in Iraq by a Marine officer was initially sent just to a small group of family and friends. His honest but wry narration and unusually frank dissection of the mission contrasts sharply with the story presented by both sides of the Iraq war debate, the Pentagon spin masters and fierce critics. Perhaps inevitably, the 'Letter from Iraq' moved quickly beyond

Youtube Custom RSS Search Results


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on October 3rd, 2006 in Programming, Technology

Updated: June 6th, 2008

Update: The method described here is obsolete. Youtube and Google released a beautiful API located here: http://code.google.com/apis/youtube/developers_guide_protocol.html. You can do everything mentioned in this article and a lot more using it. Here's a sample: http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/videos?alt=rss&racy=include&vq=BBC+Five&start-index=201&max-results=50

So it looks like YouTube updated its RSS page recently and now has the ability to create RSS feeds by tags or user, like so:

Tags:
For example, if you wanted to create an RSS feed for the tag "monkey," you would enter: http://www.youtube.com/rss/tag/monkey.rss

Users:
http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/[insert_username_here]/videos.rss
For example, if you wanted to create an RSS feed for the user "YouTube," you would enter: http://www.youtube.com/rss/user/youtube/videos.rss

The search by tag approach, however, won't necessarily get complete results because it will depend on user tagging the videos. …

Review of: Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro Earphones


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on September 18th, 2006 in My Favorites

Updated: December 4th, 2009

image Received this set today from Amazon. This is the review I wrote:

Well, what can I say… this is hands down the best pair of earphones that I've tried so far. I went through:

– (of course) the ipod cheapies that are horrible at everything except for giving you pain,
– the ER-6i, which sucked so bad, they had to be returned to Amazon. They basically touched parts of my brain, literally, that's how deep they went in. I experienced pain and headaches almost instantly,
– the Sony MDR-EX71SL, which was actually quite decent for the price ($29.99 on Amazon). They were much better than ER-6i and sounded great, until they fell apart completely due to the …

White & Nerdy
————
Parody of "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire
New lyrics by Al Yankovic

They see me mowin'
My front lawn
I know they're all thinking I'm so white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Can't you see I'm white and nerdy?
Look at me, I'm white and nerdy
I wanna roll with
The gangstas
But so far they all think I'm too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too …
