Happy Birthday Nelson Mandela. Today is Madiba's 87th bithday. He is celebrating it with his family in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, which used to be the Transkei, where Mandela was born in 1918. The last time we heard from him was from the stage of the 'Live 8, the long walk to justice' concert in Johannesburg on 2 July. See the report here!
Other news I find quite exciting is the new video webcasts, involving puppets and animation, taking place recently. One of the most innovative is the Virgin Mobile web commercial being webcast from Canada. Another is The Abstractions - take a peek! (Thanks to PuppetVision Blog - see the other webcasts on here!)
