Google launched a virtual world chatting program. It lets users interact with each other using an idea similar to yahoo’s animated personality avatars. However, this allows you to interact in 3D where you could chat with your friends and meet people online in rooms that you decorate and fully customize from a catalog of avatars, outfits, furniture, and rooms to build up.

Dubbed Turkish Series

20 Jul 2008 In: entertainment, thoughts

I happen to watch the first one that came out last year before the hype started. It caught my attention because,

  1. it was not in formal Arabic (fus7a) which was burnt by all the Mexican series broadcasted over the years.
  2. it was something I could relate to coming from a similar culture.

Today, a total of 5 Turkish series broadcast on Arabic satellite channels. It will probably spread like the Mexican series in a few years. Where is all the Arabic production going? Where are the writers and directors? It would be nice to see Arabic works that could compete with these dubbed series.
