Other Ten Percent 1/24/11

Jan 24 2011

Alright people it’s an all video monday as we spend a week going over the experiments I did this month that I think actually worked. Mondays are fairly easy to do themes for since I have so much content to work with and a decent amount of time to do it in. Still considering the length of a lot of these videos this entry is probably going to be commentary light and BoingBoing and Daily What heavy.
