5 Courts

A revolutionary multi-player, multi-site game and arts space to be played across all five cities.

Entirely interactive, it’s a competition to see which city has the least light balls in their square when [...]

Useless Information

It talks about software systems like Jaiku’s which is based around the location of friends and family. One researcher from UCLA Danah Boyd puts a good alternative criticism of [...]

The Third-Generation Web

December 29th, 2006

I don’t like this whole naming style of the web 1.0, 2.0 etc. Then I was shuffling around articles from Kurzweilai when I read the third generation one. I remember I came across to the same debate couple of weeks ago. Here I came across to it again and I thought I’d share. I don’t [...]

After the semester.

Computer Vision related Processing applications

I have been keeping those in my browser for a while now. Better to keep them here instead of there. Those might be helpful for what I am thinking to do for my final of Programming from A to Z. I am thinking to use video sensing at this point, but we’ll see.
This [...]

data visualization

March 22nd, 2006

Spending the last few days brainstorming about my final projects. Lately I am really interested in transforming data into “tangible bits” as Hiroshi Ishii coined the term. One example of this could be fraesmaschine by Ralf Baecker.
Nowhere is a landscape in the condition of development. the users of the german search-engine METAGER erode rivers, canyons [...]

First, we built networks to help us find information. Google [...]
