Bits 'n' Bites

• It's the future of personalized news, the Facebook News Network. It makes me laugh and sad at the same time. I'm such an addict...

• Ever wondered who all the people standing behind The Beatles on the cover of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band? The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has an interactive version of the famous album, with bio links to everyone pictured.

• Seems Heroes creator Tim Kring realizes that his once hot show is now ho-hum and he's promising to do something about it. A sampling:
"We took too long to get to the big-picture story."
"In retrospect, I don't think romance is a natural fit for us."
"The message is that we've heard the complaints — and we're doing something about it."

  1. I found the Oxford Dictonary of National Biography's interactive Sgt. Pepper cover back in June when the album celebrated its 40th anniversary. It is way cool.

    As to the Facebook News Network, I hate to admit it, but it could be the future of the news....
