good copy bad copy
i just watched the documentary about copyright, copyleft, creative commons... our changing digital economy and our emerging cultural landscape. it's an amazing film and you should definitely check it out. the last few minutes where girl talk is remixing a tecno brega remix of gnarls barkley's crazy is... crazy. this is the beauty and power of remix culture speaking for itself.
change is now online
it's great that the obama-biden campaign got their new website [change.gov] up so fast. but i feel like something is missing... ;]
the canon 5d mark ii

well i wouldn't say i'm back exactly because i always do and it's always a lie. but anyway, i've been updating my website recently in case you were curious. i've added some new recently accepted papers, i've finally done a good subpage for nimio (you were missing nimio weren't you?), and i added information about my new project SeeShell. hopefully i will get around to putting up my cv and design portfolio soon.
undersound in the french blogs
someone tell me what they are saying about undersound... and us!
uk visa application
i'm trying to figure out getting a visa to the uk and it's blowing my mind. or at least the stupid forms are. apparently i am allowed a maximum of 4 friends. i bet you are wondering if you made the cut ;]
london book project
the london book project is an endeavor that takes inspiration from many of the same social behaviours that we observed in the tube and incorporated into undersoung. although their website is not the greatest, the project has some nice ambitions:
The London Book Project is a free book exchange on a massive scale. Using the London Underground as a high speed distribution network, we aim to bring real literature to London's commuters. Scrap the freesheets - read a free book instead!i'm looking forward to seeing the results.
Over the next two weeks we'll be distributing thousands of second hand books across the tube and we want YOU to get involved. If you see one of our books, please pick it up! Then read it and replace with any book of your choice. Let's make the tube a giant, free library!
diy gadgets of kenya
now this is real sustainability. apparently the afrigadget blog has been pwned, but i'm really looking forward to reading more about diy technologies from africa and thinking about how this might actually affect design for other settings.
