Just over a week ago, Lionsgate held an early press-invited screening for The Hunger Games in LA. Attendees were thoroughly bound by NDA and embargo, but some of those constraints were lifted. That means that the people who’ve seen the film so far are allowed to talk on Twitter about the film, though they can’t yet post full reviews.
That’s all pretty impressive, and I’m sure there are some people out there who haven’t liked the film, but the reactions like those above, are all quite positive. That’s far better than fans probably could reasonably expect. That might only make the last couple weeks of March more difficult to wait out.

 People love visualizinginternet usage, mostly because it’s very pretty. But photographer and NYT tech editor Eric Fischer’s outdone himself with perhaps the prettiest one of all, mesmerizingly mappingFlickr and Twitter use across the dark surface of the Earth.
The data from North America is pretty surprising! Twitter use is heaviest on in the Southeast and Eastern Seaboard, with much less action on the typically tech-heavy west coast. The central states are, unsurprisingly, something of a dead zone.
The rest of the world is mostly dark—according to this visualization, Twitter and Flickr are almost entirely an activity of the Western World. Oh, and New Zealand. Which loves Flickr.

Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down in a park bench and contemplate your existence. Solitude. Tranquility. Or, you can have pictures of your sit-down meditation broadcast across the internet via Twitter. That will certainly make me feel relaxed.
The @tweetingseat project’s—child of design student Chris McNicoll—snaps two photos whenever someone parks their behind on the bench. One view captures the surroundings, while another tree-mounted cam capturesyou. We’re all then free to get some park voyeurism on and watch sad old people throwing birdseed, young couples making out, and college students conspicuously reading Chaucer.
