Language Log » Lorem China - a secret language spoken only online by a knowledgeable and learned few

Language Log » Lorem China - a secret language spoken only online by a knowledgeable and learned few | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Imagine discovering a secret language spoken only online by a knowledgeable and learned few. Over a period of weeks, as you begin to tease out the meaning of this curious tongue and ponder its purpose, the language appears to shift in subtle but fantastic ways, remaking itself daily before your eyes. And just when you are poised to share your findings with the rest of the world, the entire thing vanishes.


It all started a few months back when I received a note from Lance James, head of cyber intelligence at Deloitte. James pinged me to share something discovered by FireEye researcher Michael Shoukry and another researcher who wished to be identified only as “Kraeh3n.” They noticed a bizarre pattern in Google Translate: When one typed “lorem ipsum” into Google Translate, the default results (with the system auto-detecting Latin as the language) returned a single word: “China.”

QAUL.NET by Christoph Wachter & Mathias Jud - The next (free) Internet...

"

qaul.net implements a redundant, open communication principle, in which wireless-enabled computers and mobile devices can directly form a spontaneous network. Chat and Twitter functions or movie streaming is possible independent of internet and cellular networks. qaul.net can spread like a virus, and an Open Source Community can modify it freely.


In a time of communication blackouts in places like Egypt, Burma, and Tibet, and given the large power outages often caused by natural disasters, qaul.net has taken on the challenge of critically examining existing communication pathways while simultaneously exploring new horizons.


We are developing qaul.net and will release it at the ARS electronica 2012 At the festival, we will install wifi stations to seed the network-’virus’ and spread the word about our project. Visitors to the exhibition in Linz will carry on qaul.net on their devices and might broadcast it elsewhere soon. From the ARS electronica, qual.net will grow and spread around the world."

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin

Réalité augmentée, réalité orientée, par le philosophe Eric Sadin | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

La notion de «réalité augmentée» peut être prise au pied de la lettre dans la mesure où le procédé permet de saisir des dimensions dissimulées rendues manifestes, révélant un panorama élargi des choses non directement perceptibles par les sens. Appellation qui pourrait tout autant faire l’objet d’une torsion, vu les conseils à vocation généralement commerciale, qui appelleraient un léger déplacement de la dimension plutôt flatteuse «d’augmentation», pour la prise en compte de la force «orientante», devant alors plus justement être qualifiée de «réalité orientée». ...

TOURNANT COGNITIF

 

La réalité augmentée expose la preuve patente d’une puissance virtuellement omnisciente de la technique collant désormais au corps ou faisant corps à notre perception des choses, à l’instar des Google Glass ou autres lunettes connectées qui adjoignent à l’expérience quotidienne un réservoir en théorie infini et évolutif d’indications en rapport. Ultime étape avant l’implémentation de lentilles au contact des rétines, nous érigeant comme des cyborgs non pas augmentés d’organes artificiels, mais enveloppés de données individuellement ajustées à chacun de nos «profils» et de nos situations. Dispositifs en sophistication croissante, dont on ne peut réduire la portée et les enjeux à de seules informations ou conseils prétendument «pertinents», mais qui appellent de saisir le «tournant cognitif» qui s’instaure.

The information age is powered by thin fiber-optic cables buried in the sea bed, spreading between continents to connect the most remote corners of the planet. These great arteries account for practically all of our international web traffic, and each one has been logged by Washington research firm Telegeography in its interactive Submarine Cable Map 2014. The company's research director Alan Mauldin told CNN about the world's underwater networks. ...

#Book : Spam (A Shadow History of the Internet ) by Finn Brunton | The MIT Press

#Book : Spam (A Shadow History of the Internet ) by Finn Brunton | The MIT Press | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

The vast majority of all email sent every day is spam, a variety of idiosyncratically spelled requests to provide account information, invitations to spend money on dubious products, and pleas to send cash overseas. Most of it is caught by filters before ever reaching an in-box. Where does it come from? As Finn Brunton explains in Spam, it is produced and shaped by many different populations around the world: programmers, con artists, bots and their botmasters, pharmaceutical merchants, marketers, identity thieves, crooked bankers and their victims, cops, lawyers, network security professionals, vigilantes, and hackers. Every time we go online, we participate in the system of spam, with choices, refusals, and purchases the consequences of which we may not understand.
    
This is a book about what spam is, how it works, and what it means....

Forgetting the Internet - A short story imagines life after the internet forgets, by Nicholas O'Brien

Forgetting the Internet - A short story imagines life after the internet forgets, by Nicholas O'Brien | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Even though it was sunny, I knew something was wrong the moment I woke up the day of The Ruling. I didn't check the news, I didn't read the paper, I just felt something in the air—an electric current of negativity buzzing in my back pocket where I keep my phone. All morning it shook. It vibrated until it died.


I remember it was sunny curtains in the window, the sliver of sky that could be seen between my backyard and the side of a warehouse behind my building. A glass of water sat by the bed, air bubbles popping on its surface after a night's rest. It was nicer then than it is now—muggy with clockwork downpours around 16h00. My back pocket still droops from the invisible weight of my old phone, and the ghost vibrating sensation still persists, like a lost limb, or broken nerves. I haven't replaced my old appendage. I know that even if I could, no one would be calling, no texts incoming, no whatsapps, no tweets. That life was over—"forgotten" as the press said on that sunny morning so long ago.

7 sites créatifs et ludiques pour faire de la musique gratuite | ARTE Creative | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Music sounds better with you - Game on ! 

Tout le monde peut (et devrait) créer du son. 


La morale dans Ratatouille est que tout le monde peut cuisiner... Dans le monde réel, tout le monde peut être musicien. Et ce n'est plus le rôle des Majors de juger du potentiel d'un son et d'un (apprenti) artiste. Les maisons de disques ont eu lieu d'être pour leur réseau, pour leur matos et pour leur distribution. Aujourd'hui, il y a Internet. Quiconque avec un ordinateur peut créer, jouer et diffuser.


Mais avant de devenir la rock star qui est en vous, avant même de jouer de la musique, commençons par prendre du plaisir, et jouer AVEC la musique.


Voici donc sept outils créatifs et divertissants pour appréhender la musique différemment.

Ce que l’internet n’a pas réussi (1/4) : des rêves des pionniers à un monde post-Snowden - Par Hubert Guillaud

Ce que l’internet n’a pas réussi (1/4) : des rêves des pionniers à un monde post-Snowden - Par Hubert Guillaud | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Depuis les révélations sans fin d’Edward Snowden – on s’en afflige à chaque épisode, mais ces révélations en continu ont au moins le mérite de nous tenir éveillés -, l’innovation technologique a la gueule de bois… Et ce qui s’annonce risque d’être pire. Car les promesses que l’internet n’a pas transformées risquent demain de se révéler encore plus douloureuses à porter.


Alors peut-être est-il temps de dresser le bilan… de nos rêves et espoirs déçus. C’est ce à quoi voudrait s’intéresser ce dossier.


Pour cela, il faut nous intéresser aux legs de la contre-culture, “aux formes politiques qui ont été déposées par les pionniers dans le réseau des réseaux”, comme les synthétise le sociologue Dominique Cardon dans sa remarquable introduction au livre de Fred Turner consacré à Steward Brand, Aux sources de l’utopie numérique. ...

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web

The evolution of the web - Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

Interactive infographic about the evolution of browsers and the web. This infographic features major web browsers since 1993 such as Mosaic, Netscape, Opera, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome as well as key developments in web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


The web today is a growing universe of interlinked web pages and web apps, teeming with videos, photos and interactive content. What the average user doesn't see is the interplay of web technologies and browsers that makes all this possible.


Over time, web technologies have evolved to give web developers the ability to create new generations of useful and immersive web experiences. Today's web is a result of the ongoing efforts of an open web community that helps define these web technologies, like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL, and ensure that they're supported in all web browsers.

The colour bands in this visualisation represent the interaction between web technologies and browsers, which brings to life the many powerful web apps that we use daily.

"Internet est sur le point de disparaître" : entretien avec le géographe Boris Beaude

"Internet est sur le point de disparaître" : entretien avec le géographe Boris Beaude | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

L’Atelier des médias reçoit cette semaine le géographe Boris Beaude pour parler de son livre intitulé Les fins d'Internet. Un ouvrage qui s’ouvre sur cette phrase courte et inquiétante : « Internet a à peine plus de trente ans et il est sur le point de disparaître. »

 

Longtemps l’univers de ceux qui parlent d‘Internet et des nouvelles technologies était divisé entre deux camps très distincts. D’un côté les technophiles, fascinés par les possibles qu’offrent la mise en réseau des individus, l’horizontalité et la décentralisation des organisations. De l’autre, les technosceptiques, raillant un nouvel univers sans règles, reposant sur une utopie destructrice d’équilibres et de consensus vitaux. ...

Map of the Internet App by PEER 1 Hosting | Digital MediaArts Numériques | Scoop.it

While curiosity around the Internet has loomed since its inception, no one has been able to explain what the Internet physically looks like. Today, I’m excited to share that we have officially launched our Map of the Internet app, which provides a stunning 3D visualization of the Internet and all of its autonomous systems worldwide, as well as how they are connected.


In 2011, we took the first step in developing this visualization with the debut of our Map of the Internet infographic poster. Driven by our continued passion for all things having to do with networking, we designed this app to further bring to life what the Internet looks like – and how the various autonomous components interact to connect the world. While it’s certainly cool and a fun app, we think of the Map of the Internet app as an educational tool that represents the Internet’s evolution from 1994 to present day, highlighting key moments, like the launch of Internet heavyweights Facebook and Google, for example...
