Yesterday during the F8 conference Facebook revealed Messenger Platform which lets developers build chatbots. Yes, now you can do anything just by sending chat to the bots!
You can do various things with these bots! You ask for a date about the weather in your location, the latest news, shopping, order flowers for your lover and mores. I even think about build one for this website and BSID so people can get update ASAP in their Messenger. Maybe after I finish my internship, who knows.

Rumor has it that BURNS produced Britney Spears’ next single Make Me (Oooh). If it turns out to be true, then we need to prepare ourselves for the slayage that will come within a month from now. But then again, let’s just hope Team Britney will confirm this rumor ASAP (and also announce the single officially).
BURNS is an English producer, he has worked with a lot of different artist from Marina and The Diamonds to Calvin Harris. And no, he doesn’t have hits yet. But so did Danja and The Outsider. He really needs to give the best one for the queen of pop.
If you haven’t listened to any of his works, let me hand-pick some of my favorite from BURNS so you know what you could expect. But well, like he said on Twitter:
Update: The song is titled Make Me according to Sony Music Germany and will be released next Friday, May 20. Stay tuned for more information, guys!
It’s been like years since Britney Spears released her last album. But hold on tite, because her new untitled album and of course her brand new single titled Make Me (Oooh) are around the corner. Just wait a lil bit longer and it will be there! The information was revealed by Robin Leach, who also confirmed the non-existent GMA desert performance. But well, he also confirmed the Vegas extention and Pretty Girls! So let’s just finger our fingers and hope Britney will confirm this exciting new!
Furthermore Robin Leach reported that Britney will shoot the video next Monday, April 18th, and then she will premiere the song along with the video one month later, maybe around May 13rd. And he also elaborated that Britney’s new album will be released four weeks later after the premiere of Make Me (Ooh) music video, which means the new album will be released mid June.
Are you excited? Because I am! Let’s hope now Britney really takes another direction in her music career and not repeats her BJ and PG mistakes. Cuz she constantly says that this will be different than her other works. And hope it is different in a very good way.
One sunny morning I sat on my desk at my beautiful office in Stuttgart, Germany while staring at the monitor screen hoping the render progress bar of Sony Vegas would move. But it didn’t. I smashed the table and got fired.
Monkey as Me at Work
Just kidding. I just constantly force closed Sony Vegas with Windows Task Manager. It took me hours before I completely rendered one video, well… I didn’t just sit and stare the screen. I decided to change the format, size, framerate, everything. In the end I ended up with a 5GB file, AVI extension, and a less than 2 minutes video. What the heck!
Then I called one of my co-workers to show her the video I just rendered, and it stucked. It just showed one frame per 5 minutes. I swear to God I wanted to jump from the building. I started swearing at my laptop but I know it’s not really his fault. So I just showed my co-worker the video I just made directly in Sony Vegas.
She gave me feedback to change this and that. Noted. I made the change and still tried to render the video with the lowest size possible and the best quality possible. I clicked render. 5%, 30%, 60%, 75%. And Sony Vegas decided to stop to see me flip the table.
It never happened before, so I thought there’s a problem with one of the materials that I used for the video, either it’s the PNG files, the screencast video, I didn’t know.
Until I decided to do a lil change in the preferences.
And then I tried to render my video once again. 1%, 5%, 10%, It took forever, until, 99%, 100%. And that’s how I won the day today. You might see me fall in the morning, Vegas, but you should expect to see me to rise like a phoenix!
