A Pioneering Net Artist Mourns the Unfulfilled Promise of the Internet by Carey Dunne

A Pioneering Net Artist Mourns the Unfulfilled Promise of the Internet by Carey Dunne | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

For the past decade, along with fellow former members of the late hacker-net artist collective Free Art & Technology (FAT) Lab, American artist Evan Roth has been “dedicated to enriching the public domain one mutha-fuckin LOL at a time,” as the collective writes in their mission statement. Roth’s net art stunts have includedamassing a GIF army to Occupy the Internet; hacking his internet cache to create digital “self-portraits;” fooling the Google algorithm into making his name the number one search result for “bad ass mother fucker,” and creating a browser plug-in that erases Justin Bieber from the internet.

 

But in recent years, especially in the wake of the NSA spying scandal, Roth has found himself disillusioned with the “monetization, commercialization, and centralization of the internet,” as he tells Hyperallergic....

01>05.12.2016 - Millenium Web Meetings / Where gaming and documentaries first meet (created by the Millenium Film Festival) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Millenium Web Meetings is the must-go meeting-point for fans of new technologies and new communication means. Its growing success during the Millenium festival made us decide to organise an edition specifically dedicated to a new genre of storytelling from 1 – 5 December 2016.

Not only is the Millenium Web Meetings an excellent opportunity to try-out this original genre of storytelling, it is also a great chance for making contacts in the field of interactive web-creations. We encourage creative encounters, which is the reason that we invite participants, professionals and amateurs to participate in our events! In short, it is the occasion to push an emerging, incredibly exciting genre forward with the goal of giving a helping hand in its diffusion.

 

As part of the Millenium Web Meetings, David Dufresne will give a master class on Monday 5th of December. As creator of "Fort McMoney" and his latest project DADA-DATA, David Dufresne has collaborated with the Millenium Web Meetings various times in the past years. The master class is the opportunity for fans of new technologies to learn from the forerunner in this genre. The master class will be followed by the announcement of the winning Cross-Over Lab teams and a drink to celebrate the end of the event.

Soon the full program...

How countries like China & Russia are able to control the internet by Nikhil Sonnad

How countries like China & Russia are able to control the internet by Nikhil Sonnad<br/>Keith Collins | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

In January 2011, protests broke out across Egypt to demand an end to the despotic and repressive regime of Hosni Mubarak. The protests were largely organized online, through social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Mubarak quickly realized this, and launched a counterattack: He severed all access to the internet from within Egypt.

 

Dyn Research, a internet performance company that analyzes how the internet performs, noted that Egypt’s Arab Spring shutdown started with just a couple phone calls from the government:

 

The prior day [before the internet shutdown], we had received a tip from an Egyptian telecom engineer that the government was warning some telecoms that they should be prepared to act quickly if the government ordered the shutdown of internet services. Just after midnight local time in Egypt, that order came and nearly all Egyptian access to the global internet was down in a matter of minutes...

Manifestos for the Internet Age - A collection of manifestos for the Internet age, from 1974 to 2012 | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Manifestos for the Internet Age is a reader that collects manifestos of computer culture, starting with Ted Nelson (Computer Lib), through the GNU Manifesto and the Hacker Manifesto (1986), up to current influential positions such as The Cult of Done, the Cryptoparty Manifesto, the Critical Engineering Manifesto (Oliver, Savičić, Vasiliev), the 3D Additivist Manifesto (Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke), the Xenofeminist Manifesto (Laboria Cuboniks), and many other writings from both artists and activists.

 

This book is currently in beta status. Development is ongoing in the Git repository (participation is welcome). The book is generated using MarkDown, Pandoc and TeX.

Internet users, you are now invited on Webrecorder.io > 5GB of free space. Get archiving! via @Rhizome | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Rhizome is pleased to announce the first full release of Webrecorder, the free online tool that allows users to create their own high-fidelity archives of the dynamic web. All internet users are now invited to sign up for a free account with 5GB of archiving storage space at webrecorder.io.

 

Current digital preservation solutions involve complex, automated processes that were designed for a web made up of relatively static documents. Webrecorder, in contrast, can capture social media and other dynamic content, such as embedded video and complex javascript, while putting the user at the center of the archiving process.

 

This release offers a number of improvements to the fidelity, usability, and stability of the platform.

Eva and Franco Mattes’s latest work, Dark Content (2015–ongoing), is a series of videos only viewable through the Tor Browser and hosted on the darknet. One new video is released approximately every month. In its form of distribution and its content, the series — which launched first as an exhibition at Essex Flowers — raises and grapples with a host of pressing questions: Do we consider anonymous speech online and off a civil right? If so, how do we defend that right, given invasive surveillance by the US, China, and England? ...

As is becoming a common refrain in political circles, technology was fingered as a culprit in the attacks...

The GIF Is Dead. Long Live the GIF - The Long, Remarkable History of the #GIF - By Eric Limer

The GIF Is Dead. Long Live the GIF - The Long, Remarkable History of the #GIF - By Eric Limer | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

How one humble file type ruled the internet for decades.

 

November 5, 1999, was Burn All GIFs Day. Had you visited its homepage that Friday, you would have seen the movement's game plan laid out as plainly as its name: "On Burn All GIFs Day, all GIF users will gather at Unisys and burn all their GIF files." This, alongside a selection of pointedly anti-GIF imagery—all proudly PNG files.

 

Despite the obvious joke of setting files on fire, acknowledged with a winking plea to "extinguish all GIFs before leaving the vicinity," the anger was real and the mission was earnest: to free the web from the scourge of the GIF once and for all.

Already more than a decade old and with roots reaching back half a decade before the World Wide Web itself, the GIF was showing its age. It offered support for a paltry 256 colors. Its animation capabilities were easily rivaled by a flipbook. It was markedly inferior to virtually every file format that had followed it.

 

On top of that, there were the threats of litigation from parent companies and patent-holders which had been looming over GIF users for five long years before the fiery call to action. By Burn All GIFs Day, the GIF was wobbling on the precipice of destruction. Those who knew enough to care deeply about file formats and the future of the web were marching on the gates, armed with PNGs of torches and pitchforks.

 

And yet, somehow, here we are. Seventeen years later, the GIF not only isn't dead. It rules the web.

How the father of the World Wide Web plans to reclaim it from Facebook and Google

How the father of the World Wide Web plans to reclaim it from Facebook and Google | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
When the World Wide Web first took off in the mid 1990s, the dream wasn’t just big, it was distributed: Everyone would have their own home page, everyone would post their thoughts – they weren’t called “blogs” until 1999 – and everyone would own their own data, for there was no one around offering to own it for us. The web consisted of nodes joined by links, with no center.

Oh, how times have changed.

Now a handful of companies own vast swaths of web activity – Facebook for social networking, Google for searching, eBay for auctions – and quite literally own the data their users have provided and generated. This gives these companies unprecedented power over us, and gives them such a competitive advantage that it’s pretty silly to think you’re going to start up a business that’s going to beat them at their own game.

An Internet: by Jeroen van Loon - prototype for a new internet based on anti-data // #mediaart | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
How would the internet look like if all data were temporary and ephemeral?

An Internet unfolds a vision of such a future internet, with a radically new type of data: smoke.
An Internet converts the 280 internet undersea cable names into (binary) smoke signals.


The names are puffed into the glass network, causing it to fill up, to spill over by which it puffs the data out again. Together the smoke signals create a unique moment without any form of documentation.

La culture internet des mèmes - De Frédéric Kaplan et Nicolas Nova (2016) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Nous sommes à un moment de transition dans l’histoire des médias. Sur Internet, des millions de personnes produisent, altèrent et relaient des «mèmes», contenus numériques aux motifs stéréotypés. Cette «culture» offre un paysage nouveau, riche et complexe à étudier.

 

Pour la première fois, un phénomène à la fois global et local, populaire et, d’une certaine manière, élitiste, construit, «médié» et structuré par la technique, peut être observé avec précision. Etudier les mèmes, c’est non seulement comprendre ce qu’est et sera peut-être la culture numérique, mais aussi inventer une nouvelle approche permettant de saisir la complexité des circulations de motifs à l’échelle mondiale.

Que reste-t-il des utopies du Net ? Par Amaelle Guiton (2016)

Que reste-t-il des utopies du Net ? Par Amaelle Guiton (2016) | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
En 1996, l'essayiste américain John Perry Barlow publiait sa «Déclaration d’indépendance du cyberespace», devenue emblématique des cyberutopies libertaires. Vingt ans après, Etats et entreprises ont repris la main, mais l'imaginaire de réinvention sociale n'a pas disparu.


Le 8 février 1996, John Perry Barlow est à Davos, en Suisse, à l’invitation du Forum économique mondial. Drôle d’oiseau que l’Américain, à la fois poète, essayiste, ranchero et parolier du Grateful Dead. Libertarien revendiqué, il penche, dans les faits, du côté des Républicains – en 1978, il a dirigé la campagne pour le Congrès de Dick Cheney dans le Wyoming –, dont il ne se distanciera qu’au début des années 2000, échaudé par George W. Bush. Surtout, il est une figure d’une des premières communautés en ligne, fondée en 1985 : The Well, qui sera la matrice du magazine Wired. Avec deux autres membres de The Well, l’informaticien John Gilmore et l’entrepreneur Mitch Kapor, il a créé, en 1990, l’Electronic Frontier Foundation, une association de défense des libertés civiles sur Internet...
