Weak and awesome

Weak: The quality of basketball exhibited in the Timberwolves' first summer league game, with the exception of Craig Smith, who is the only Wolf poised for a breakout year.

Awesome: that NBA.com is broadcasting all the summer league games across the web, and you can watch live games or replay any of them.

Weak: The quality of the streaming video, and of the Windows requirement. NBA.com has released a ton of video recently (not just summer league stuff), but it's all locked up in a stupid format and you can't really extract it and do anything useful with it. I'd love to make a mixtape, but I'm not going to bother if the video looks ultra-grainy...

Awesome: Podcasts from iTunes U. My current favorite is here (oooooh! THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNET!!!), but only 3 lectures are up in iTunes! Grrrr....there's another featured Stanford series that has speakers discussing emerging markets, start-ups, entrepreneurial success factors, etc. that I've been digging like mad.
