How to Flawlessly Predict Anything on the Internet ?

How to Flawlessly Predict Anything on the Internet ? | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Spark conspiracies, incite riots, and predict the future with a confidence scam for the Twitter era.


On Saturday, a Twitter accountappeared that perfectly predicted the outcome of the final World Cup game, down to who scored the winning goal for Germany. It was a con—and a classic one. (We’ll talk about how the con works in a moment.)


But it also felt like a missed opportunity, and immediately made me think of a much more serious con perfect for the 2016 election...

▶ A Computer Glossary (1968) by Charles & Ray Eames

▶ A Computer Glossary (1968) by Charles & Ray Eames | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

A Computer Glossary was shown in 1968 in the IBM Corporations pavilion at Hemisfair, the Worlds Fair in San Antonio, Texas.


The film, another in the series of Eames Office projects promoting understanding of the electronic computer, begins with a live-action, close-up sequence depicting the path that data travels in the computer, accompanied by a sound track of professional jargon being spoken by the computer-room staff. The film goes on to introduce various terms specific to electronic data processing, thereby creating a computer glossary. Animated sequences define and illustrate the glossary (according to definitions that were valid in the mid-1960’s)


The graphic presentation of terms and definitions is accompanied by short, animated dramatizations of computer operations and applications. See accompanying graphic design work for this film here.


A Computer Glossary was written by Glen Fleck and Charles with the assistance of Lynn Stoller of IBM.


It won a bronze medal at the Atlanta International Film Festival in 1969.

Crow Sourcing - A beastiary of idioms: using diverse media to probe relations of nature, language, and knowing

Crow Sourcing -  A beastiary of idioms: using diverse media to probe relations of nature, language, and knowing | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

What do we know about animals and how do we know it?

Crow Sourcing examines how we know animals as much through idioms as through direct experience.

 

There are thousands of idioms and expressions that color how we think of animals and other creatures, like "high horse," "lame duck," and "monkey business." Like "bee-line" and "get your goat." Crow Sourcing focuses on the ones that are not very intuitive. For example "as the crow flies." It isn't easy to reason out what it means and its origins. How does the crow fly? We may assume that it flies directly because of usage. It's possible that in centuries past sailors at sea released crows to figure out the best path towards land, but the origin of the idiom is disputed. Now that computer graphics technology has advanced to the point where photo-realistic animals can talk, dance, and play a drum kit, our reliance on entertainment media to learn about animal behavior is more problematic than ever. While virtuality and urbanization have gained influence over human perception, spoken languages retain vestiges of our ancestors' closeness to the natural world. Crow Sourcing engages collective memory and understanding to demystify and reanimate a dizzying array of animal sayings and expressions. It aims to provoke discussion and reflection about our creature cousins at a time of unprecedented habitat destruction and extinction.

Souvenons-nous du Joola : Un webdocumentaire sur un projet original de Alain Devalpo pour France Culture

Un webdocumentaire sur un projet original de Alain Devalpo pour France Culture.

Le 26 septembre 2002, le Joola, ferry sous tutelle de l’armée sénégalaise, assure la liaison maritime entre Ziguinchor (capitale de la Casamance) et Dakar. A 22h55, il sombre au large des côtes de la Gambie. Le nombre de victimes avoisine les 2 000 morts. La Casamance est en état de choc (à l’échelle de la France, cela représenterait 130 000 morts). C’est l'un des plus importants naufrages civils de l’histoire de la navigation maritime. Tout le Sénégal pleure ses disparus.

A l'occasion du dixième anniversaire du naufrage, Jean-Philippe Navarre et Alain Devalpo sont retournés sur les lieux du drame à la rencontre de témoins directs, dont Patrice Auvray, le seul rescapé français.

 

Tous ont accepté de revivre cette déchirure pour graver le récit de cette tragédie qui a fait plus de victimes que le Titanic.

Java 4-Ever Trailer - by JavaZone (2010)

Java 4-Ever Trailer - by JavaZone (2010) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

JavaZone is Scandinavia's biggest meeting place for software developers, and one of Europe's most important. JavaZone has been described as a high-quality, independent conference, and is a forum for knowledge exchange, recruitment and branding. Some 40 large and mid-sized businesses - our partners - exhibit their products and services in a separate exhibition space, while more than 90 presentations are given in the conference facilities. Each year, around 2,300 conference tickets are sold. This means that, over the two days the conference lasts, we deliver more than 200,000 hours of expertise. When you add to this the many informal discussions that take place at stands and between attendees, JavaZone stands out as a tremendous arena for knowledge transfer. Of course, a conference involving so many developers is also a key arena for recruitment. Through their exhibitions and other activities, the large and mid-sized companies use the opportunity to promote their business and recruit new staff. ...

De l'ivresse en spray, by Starck

De l'ivresse en spray, by Starck | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Savez-vous comment atteindre l’ivresse tout en restant classe et branché(e) ? Le designer français Philippe Starck et un scientifique franco-américain, David Edwards, ont mis au point un petit aérosol qui permet de ressentir en un coup de spray « une sensation d’ivresse » sans les effets néfastes de l’alcool.

 

« Nous ne sommes pas des saints. Notre cerveau a besoin d’évasion. Il existe des milliers de façons de s’évader et l’une d’entre elles s’appelle l’ivresse. Or si l’alcool peut faire du bien, il fait aussi beaucoup de mal. La question est donc comment se faire du bien sans se faire de mal ? WA|HH est une alternative qui propose l’idée d’ivresse sans ses effets néfastes ». Ph.S.

Birds Dessinés par Nicolas Demange, aka Alconis | Archive | Actualité | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

En revisionnant l’excellent court-métrage de Pixar « For the birds », on se rend compte que les oiseaux passent pas mal de temps à parler et ont des têtes et expressions vraiment réussies. Ce devait d’ailleurs être l’un des axes de recherches sous-jacent au projet de ce court. Quoiqu’il en soit, je me suis toujours demandé exactement ce que ces volatiles pédants et caustiques diraient dans certaines situations. L’idée est venue de là.

 

En plus, la façon dont sont représentés les oiseaux dans le film (de face, plein écran et sur un fil) était parfaite pour une reprise en format BD. Le problème de ce genre de BDs est de trouver régulièrement des scenarii drôles. C’est là que l’idée d’un site communautaire autour de ce concept est née.
