Lou Reed to take walk on Web 2.0 wild side

The special guest at tonight's Web 2.0 Summit dinner soiree is Lou Reed

SAN FRANCISCO--Web 2.0 Summit organizer John Battelle kept the 1,000 attendees in suspense last night when he told them that there would be a "special guest" at Wednesday night's post-dinner schmooze time.

This morning, Battelle let the cat out of the bag: Rock star Lou Reed will perform after dinner, which is sponsored by AOL. The idea, he said, is to let hard-working Web heads "let their hair down" rather than listen to another industry luminary speak--an idea that AOL took and ran with.

Battelle then asked people not to blog the news because a crush of local Lou Reed fans could throw things out of whack. But then again, as Battelle himself said, he was asking 1,000 people to keep a secret.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
