NYC's zoos release another viral video
Mon May 4
A while back, the Wildlife Conservation Society made a video featuring some of NYC's cutest critters to highlight the financial struggle most of our zoos and aquariums are experiencing. Well, the star of the vid, an adorable porcupine, and his furry friends are back to reiterate the message. If Gotham's cultural institutions don't receive proper funding, it hurts the local economy even more. Fewer visitors mean less traffic to surrounding businesses. Check out the video and pass along the message. Do it for your kids, your family and that lovable little porcupine.

New media generation: the WHOA Show blog
Thu Apr 30
Teacher James Avatar--who also happens to be a member of kindie band Audra Rox --is helping sixth and seventh graders at Tompkins Square Middle School hone their modern media skills in his after-school digital program. With his help, the kids launched the WHOA Show blog , where they rant and rave about pop culture, craft ad parodies (like H20 Yeah! Clear Soda , so you can drink pop in class), and goof on public figures (Donald Trump's a favorite target). While they could use a copy editor (it's herbivore :), the message is clear: the Web is the way to communicate and connect. Heck, the kids are even inviting all interested parties to guest blog ...just as long as you've got something to say. Our fave post so far: a cute video montage called Good Question , in which student Genesis Espinal asks teachers and security guards at the school random questions with onscreen graphics that comment on their answers. Think Pop-Up Video meets America's...
