we live in the future now

I read it on the internets so it must be true. You can add your set top box and your smartphone to the list of places to watch for botnet drones this year. That aside the DVB-T transmitter talk is pretty good, and includes a nice overview of MPEG encoding for those who are interested.

It reminded me of a couple things I wanna see more of this year, open hardware accelerated video encoding and software radio. I want commodity FPGA gadgets dammit, and I want robot legs!

Also, I miss the Open Graphics Project ... where'd you go?

Update: the Open Graphics Project is back online, but it hasn't been updated since last year.
