The Human Clock

Humanclock.com shows a photograph of the current time, with the photo changing every minute of the day (all 1,440 occuring minutes on Earth!) Thus you end up with a rotating picture clock sorta deal. Craig Giffen came up with this idea in March 2001 and it gradually evolved into what the site is now, the “third” version of the site. Visit the Human Clock.

David Spencer’s Media Spin : Observations about media in Canada

Written By: David - Dec• 28•09

I’ve always been interested in media. When I was four years old my Dad took me to work with him at CBC Television in Toronto. He showed me his behind the scenes work in live television as a technician. When he took me to the control room, I was given the privilege of pushing the button so that a commercial would cue up during an episode of “I Love Lucy”.

I have had other experiences in media since that time. When I ran the Christian Musicians Association from 1982 to 1986 I saw behind the scenes in a number of Ontario based newspapers and radio stations. In 1988, I wrote a proposal that was approved and I launched Generation XC a youth television talk and information show. From 2000 to 2008, I ran helped to connect Canadian Christian artists, bands, musicians, performing artists, radio and television station pioneers and writers through the network I created called ChristianMedia.ca.

Now I produce educational videos and radio documentaries and run a web site about Canadian media history, present trends and media convergence called David Spencer’s Media Spin at http://media.davidspencer.ca.
