LITTLE BLUE NEWS
1-3 April 8, 2006

GAMES
Lycos has something called Poke the penguin which is technically a
game
and appears to have been spread out all over net. It's a short bit of

fun
and the penguin wins.

WEBPAGES

IMAGES

me.

VIDEOS, ANIMATIONS AND SUCH
Youtube is one of those proliferating sources of videos posted by
the
makers and others. The search reveals 758 videos including a good share

of
the predictable but some gems. Examples:
Pengo - a short japanese commercial:

Pete the penguin: episode 1. A day in the life of pete - a short
sweet
start to a series of professionlally produced videos from Australia.
Not the
same pete that seems to be everywhere else.

Happy Feet You tube led me to this year's big budget follow up to
March
