The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity on Tuesday awarded its first Grand Prix in the innovation category, which was just introduced this year. The category was created to honor pioneering forms of technology that have made ideas possible, and the top prize was awarded to Cinder, a software developed by Cheil-owned digital agency The Barbarian Group. What it is: “Cinder” is an open-source platform for creative coding. It’s free to use, and so is the recipe that makes it. Created for “hardcore developers,” it runs on Mac OS X, the iOS and Windows, and was originally created to serve the VFX industry. It is a “toolbox” that lets you program graphics, audio, video, networking, image processing and computation geometry. —

This is amazing. Congrats, guys. I remember when Cinder was but a wee glimmer in the eyes of Robert, Keith, Andrew et al. SO EXCITING.

After the song ended, Alan said “Drone not Drones” and walked off stage.
I love this band. Psyched to see them Wednesday. I would be completely okay with a 27 minute version of this song.
Little known fact: I helped with the 1988 release of their live album “One More Reason to Forget,” released by my friend Mike, recorded by my friend Y Mike, dedicated to the memory of our friend Phil. The version of Do You Know How to Waltz on here was 17 minutes.
Excited to see this come to fruition.
