“While we have systems in place for literary citation, image attribution, and scientific reference, we don’t yet have a system that codifies the attribution of discovery in curation as a currency of the information economy, a system that treats discovery as the creative labor that it is. This is what The Curator’s Code is – a system for honoring the creative and intellectual labor of information discovery by making attribution consistent and codified, the celebrated norm.”
“Starring the Computer is a website dedicated to the use of computers in film and television. Each appearance is catalogued and rated on its importance (ie. how important it is to the plot), realism (how close its appearance and capabilities are to the real thing) and visibility (how good a look does one get of it). Fictional computers don’t count (unless they are built out of bits of real computer), so no HAL9000 – sorry.”
Best Tumblr site of the year, hands down. “Falling Down the Internet Hole is a website database selected on the below criteria: old-school design, bad taste, kitschy and/or weird.”
‘People Staring at Computers’ is a photographic intervention by Kyle McDonald:
“I wrote a simple application that took one picture every minute. If it found a face, it uploaded the photo to my server. I installed the app around NYC over three days, collecting more than a thousand photos.
Before sharing the photos online, I decided to exhibit them in the same places they were originally captured. So I wrote another app that could be remotely triggered after being installed on all the computers in one location. When the app starts up, it takes a picture and slowly fades in that photo. A moment later, it starts cycling through older photos.
Most people instinctively quit the app less than 10 seconds after recognizing their own face, so the exhibition was relegated to the unused machines.”
Last Expo is a collection of photographs taken of orphaned art in its final resting place. It’s a commemorative album of forgotten human imagination.

“Imagine this: You have to deliver a PowerPoint presentation about an unfamiliar topic, with slides you’ve never seen, to an audience eager to heckle and laugh at you. If you’re in your underwear, you’re having a nightmare. If you’re clothed, it’s called PowerPoint Karaoke…”
This is something I never saw before. Ad agency BooneOakley built a whole website using Youtube videos . Screw Flash! :-)

A dangerous criminal gang is riding the net. They act in the dark, exploring the most sinister places, in search for the bloody heart of talent and creativity. Their favourite victims are banality, conformism, lack of humor and good will at any cost. Killing Bambi is a good metaphor for their mission. They are unarmed, actually, but they can still hurt. So be careful…

Provate a giocare con la bambolina di Van Sowerwine. C’è poco da entusiasmarsi per questa animazione interattiva. Perchè lei rimarrà sempre, irrimediabilmente, sola. E voi correte il rischio di essere assaliti dal rimorso…
Avevamo già parlato dell’estetica irresistibile della sedia di plastica qui, commentando il monumento firmato Piero Golia. Ora Jens Thiel sta preparando un libro e una mostra dedicate alla monobloc plastic chair. In attesa dell’uscita del testo, Jens posta frammenti della sua ricerca su functionalfate.org. Tutte da vedere le fotografie, sul blog e sul Flickr Group dedicato. La monobloc è il vero oggetto globale, guardare per credere.
Fino al 2 aprile 2006 è aperta presso la Hayward Gallery di Londra, una grande retrospettiva sul lavoro di Dan Flavin, l’uomo che ha reso il neon celebrale poesia. In occasione della mostra, è stato creato un sito web (Dedications) dove creare il proprio assemblage di tubi luminosi e poi dedicarlo a qualcuno. Ipnotico.
