New Apocalyptic Sci-fi by Ridley Scott

Looks like the master of a genre I love is stepping into the Apocalypse with PROMETHEUS. It was rumoured this was to be a prequel to the Alien franchise but turned into a movie and story all its own. Though there is an 'Alienesk' scene in the trailer of something inside an astraunauts helmet causing a great deal of distress, I believe this film will stand on its own.

Ridley Scott creates a mythology, in which a team of explorers discover clues to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to undiscovered corners of our universe. There, they are fated to fight to save the future of the humanity.

Guerilla marketing your business with the new barcodes

Marketing can be free! Just look at the new bar codes. That your smart phone can scan a bar code and take you to a link for more information on the product or service you're interested in is making marketing affordable. But how do you take advantage of something like a bar code? You place it. You place it in bathroom stalls, on lamp posts, on billboards, everywhere you can think to that won't get you put in jail. You can hold contests for your fans that print up the bar code from your website and ask them to place it for you. Follow the hits on your google analytics and have people email you their location so you know who to award the prize after a month or a year.

The Judas Syndrome website is doing just that. For more information on this process see:
