Twitter & the informations layer

this morning i received the newsletter of Twitter:

Hacking The Debate

Tonight we expect the most activity Twitter has ever seen as
vice presidential hopefuls Sarah Palin and Joe Biden debate live
from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. The folks at
Current TV are making history by broadcasting Twitter updates on
live television during this debate. Will you see your updates on
television? Be sure to tune in or watch the streaming version of
Current TV's "Hack The Debate II" at http://current.com/debate


* it is really nice to see a web service based on short and unobstrusive discussions enabling the realtime comments on a Tv show (streamed) - it would be nice to see this happening on a larger TV show - could it be the rebirth of TV? You could select if you want to see BBC with or without comments... I wonder what it would be like.

Event Aggregator for the London Art & Design Events

Tlktlk is in and around London - sometimes a bit further. tlktlk acts mainly as a calendar to gather friends to nice events. It helps you turn off your computer and meet real people. Try it and love it.

Tlktlk will focus mainly on art and design related events (exhibitions, solo show, group show, small gallery or bigger institution, single artist performance or conceptual graphic design student experiments) - but might from time to time make music, concert and party to the headlines or even movie, projections, opening and picnic or bbq.

nice readings

This morning Tommi bookmarked two interesting articles; both were excellent and very invigorating reading.

1/ Stratfor on The Geopolitics of $130 Oil on the actual global economical and political situation to high rise of oil barel
Oil prices have risen dramatically over the past year. When they passed $100 a barrel, they hit new heights, expressed in dollars adjusted for inflation. As they passed $120 a barrel, they clearly began to have global impact. Recently, we have seen startling rises in the price of food, particularly grains. Apart from higher prices, there have been disruptions in the availability of food as governments limit food exports and as hoarding increases in anticipation of even higher prices.

2/ Andrew Hargadon writing about the causal confusion when one observes outputs and imagine rules without taking into consideration a wider picture.
The problem of causality plagues a lot of variance-driven research. Causality is, as it sounds, an attempt to clarify whether one action actually causes another. How scientists study this causal relationship is by looking at how variation in one action (the independent variable) causes variation in another (the dependent variable). Sounds simple. Until you want to study something interesting, like people.

Field Notes versus Moleskine Cahier

From left to right, a black Moleskine cahier, a Field Notes notebook, and a "natural" (or whatever they call it) Moleskine cahier sporting some additions of my own.

The Moleskine's cover is thicker and darker than the Field Notes', and you may be able to tell the Moleskines' covers are stiched whereas the Field Notes is stapled.

Live Networked Typographic Performance

http://textasplayground.net/assembling/

A little while ago, Electronest has been invited in Bruxels for the opening of the Furniture Fair by Studio Jerzey Seymour for webjying on the Dynamo Dreesen live set. We developped a visual set based on typography using essentially a home made software which was grabbing news headlines and dispalying/reacting in realtime to the Dreesen live set.

Mass Media Diving unit - demonstration

The Mass Media Diving unit is a tangible interactive design experiment: fluxes of information on the internet as poetic element; it used tactile, audio and visual activation of the user along with NO2 gaz (laughing gaz) to make one feel the ongoing information's flow poetics.

A 4 years adventure: Kitsune website, design and development

It has been 4 years now - that Electronest started with Åbäke to design and redesign (and redesign, and …) the Kitsuné website together on top of the former very first version. This post is the story behind it

INFRA-RADIO

INFRA-RADIO
Video sent by cesarharada

I really like the way cesar speaks about his projects. It's fresh and easy going.
The idea behind this project experimentation reminds me in some way of the Mass Media Diving Unit I worked on a little while ago...

INFRA-RADIO is a physical low frequency radio that synchronizes or influences the dynamic of the heart rate providing an interactive sleep experiment for a single or a group of simultaneous users.
