What is YoC?

The Year of Code scheme adds £500,000 to the £3m already pledged to dinosaur trade group the British Computer Society to teach 400 teachers coding skills - so they can teach every other teacher in the country.

The initiative's chairman is Rohan Silva, a Philosophy, Politics and Economics graduate and former advisor to the Prime Minister who rebranded "Silicon Roundabout" as "Tech City" and is an enthusiast for all things shiny and Googly. But after an interview on BBC's Newsnight with the YoC's chief on Wednesday – widely described as a "car crash" - potential enthusiasts are backing away.

Stuart Smith wraps prototyping, hits Kickstarter
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Back in January, we chewed the fat with Stuart over the challenges he'd faced as a CAD and 3D printing newbie in creating a working Stubilizer prototype.

At that point, he wasn't quite ready to go to market but has since expanded on his original 3-axis model to prepare three flavours of device offering varying degrees of stabilisation.

Rembrandt - Auerbach: Raw Truth - What’s on - Rijksmuseum

Rembrandt - Auerbach: Raw Truth - What’s on - Rijksmuseum
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Following in a tradition of special displays of works by artists inspired by the Rijksmuseum’s world famous collection of Dutch Masters, six paintings by Frank Auerbach will go on show in dialogue with works by Rembrandt in the Gallery of Honour at the Rijksmuseum under the title Rembrandt - Auerbach: Raw Truth from 12 December 2013 to 16 March 2014.

The Rijksmuseum collection has been an inspiration for generations of artists since the museum first opened in 1885. In that same year for example, Vincent van Gogh spent many hours full of admiration for The Jewish Bride, (1665-69) by Rembrandt. Throughout the years, the Rijksmuseum has inspired famous artists in all kinds of ways. For a number of years, the Rijksmuseum has been drawing attention to artists who found their inspiration in the Dutch Masters, with displays such as John Constable & Jacob van Ruisdael (2007), Miro & Jan Steen (2010), Anselm Kiefer & The Night Watch (2011), and Rembrandt & Degas (2011).

Frank Auerbach

Frank Auerbach, Head of E O W II, 1964. Frank Auerbach courtesy Marlborough Fine ArtFrank Auerbach (Berlin, 1931) was sent to Britain in 1939 by his parents, and from 1947 has lived in London. He is considered to be one of the most important British painters since the Second World War, belonging to the same generation as Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. At the beginning of the 1960s, Auerbach became fascinated by the way in which Rembrandt managed to paint the raw truth and thus penetrate to the essence of his subjects. Auerbach has done the same in his own way in the six paintings from this period that the Rijksmuseum will be displaying:_ Primrose Hill, Spring Sunshine_ (1961-62/1964), The Sitting Room (1964-1965), Head of E.O.W. (1964),_ Head of E.O.W. II_ (1964), Primrose Hill, Summer Sunshine (1964) and Primrose Hill, Winter Sunshine (1962-1964). These works will be displayed opposite Rembrandt’s paintings: The Syndics of the Drapers’ Guild (1662),_ Self-Portrait of the Apostle Paulus_ (1661), The Jewish Bride (1665-69) and Titus dressed as a Monk (1660).

With iron discipline, Auerbach has worked on his paintings at fixed times every week, often for years on end. In a meticulous search for the essence of the subject, he refines the outcome of the previous session time and time again. The result is works with an almost sculptured structure of paint that is reminiscent of Rembrandt’s later works. However, for Auerbach this impasto was not the objective itself; for him it was only a by-product of the search for the raw truth: Good paintings attack fact from an unfamiliar point of view. They’re bound to look genuine and in someway rawly and actively repellent, disturbing and itchy and not right. ‘A Conversation with Frank Auerbach’, Frank Auerbach, exh. cat, Hayward Gallery, London 1978, p. 16

Rembrandt - Auerbach: Raw Truth is organised in collaboration with Ordovas, London.

The Cantos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cantos

The Cantos by Ezra Pound is a long, incomplete poem in 120 sections, each of which is a . Most of it was written between 1915 and 1962, although much of the early work was abandoned and the early cantos, as finally published, date from 1922 onwards.

Jan Bergmans's insight:

The most striking feature of the text, to a casual browser, is the inclusion of Chinese characters as well as quotations in European languages other than English. Recourse to scholarly commentaries is almost inevitable for a close reader. The range of allusion to historical events is very broad, and abrupt changes occur with little transition. There is also wide geographical reference; Pound added to his earlier interests in the classical Mediterranean culture and East Asia selective topics from medieval and early modern Italy and Provence, the beginnings of the United States, England of the 17th century, and details from Africa he had obtained from Leo Frobenius. References without explanation abound. Pound initially believed that he possessed poetic and rhetorical techniques which would themselves generate significance, but as time passed he became more concerned with the messages he wished to convey.

The section he wrote at the end of World War II, begun while he was interned in American-occupied Italy, has become known as The Pisan Cantos, is often considered to be self-contained. It was awarded the first Bollingen Prize in 1948. There were many repercussions, since this in effect honoured a poet who had been condemned as a traitor in his native country, and who had been diagnosed with a serious mental illness.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 8, 2014 10:42 PM


Simon Staffans:  "The year has started briskly with a number of articles talking about 2014 as the year of the tipping point. Finally the audience is in place (granted, it has probably been in place for quite some time already) but even more crucially, the entertainment industry is poised to take advantage of this, by moving into the creation of story worlds and franchises in an even bigger way than before."

Snap! Nokia's gyro stabilised camera tech now on open market

Snap! Nokia's gyro stabilised camera tech now on open market | Making Movies | Scoop.it
Nothing stays still for long in camera development
Jan Bergmans's insight:

The tech that makes Nokia's smartphone cameras so awesomely good has become available on the open market for the first time.

Gyroscopic stabilisation, which means cameras' shutters can stay open for longer without blurring the final image, has been around for a while in digital cameras.

 

Cramming the technology into the minute space available inside a mobile phone – even one with a small bulge on the back – has been something pretty unique.

Chipmeisters ST Microelectronics have now announced the L2G2IS, a tiny two-axis gyroscope for image stabilisation. The packaged chip is 2.3 x 2.3 x 0.7mm and includes a sensing element which puts out the angular rate through a digital interface. The mechanics are micro-machined on silicon.

It's not a cheap part, at $1.70 per unit in quantities of 1000. By contrast, that's about three times what a handset manufacturer pays for a cheap set of headphones, but with the multi-million pound deals any substantial handset manufacturer would do, there is plenty of room for the price to come down.

Favoured customers will have been apprised of the device for a while so it may appear in some phones at Mobile World Congress at the end of Feburary, with possible shipments later this year. ®

In the Old Age of the Soul - Ezra Pound

In the Old Age of the Soul by Ezra Pound
Jan Bergmans's insight:

I do not choose to dream; there cometh on me Some strange old lust for deeds. As to the nerveless hand of some old warrior The sword-hilt or the war-worn wonted helmet Brings momentary life and long-fled cunning, So to my soul grown old - Grown old with many a jousting, many a foray, Grown old with namy a hither-coming and hence-going - Till now they send him dreams and no more deed; So doth he flame again with might for action, Forgetful of the council of elders, Forgetful that who rules doth no more battle, Forgetful that such might no more cleaves to him So doth he flame again toward valiant doing.

China's $8 billion plan to rival Hollywood

China's $8 billion plan to rival Hollywood | Making Movies | Scoop.it
China's richest man is investing $8.2 billion in a 'movie metropolis' that aims to rival Hollywood and Disney with its massive film and television studios, production facilities, theme parks, roller coasters, hotels, bars and banquet halls.
Jan Bergmans's insight:

Wang and his firm Dalian Wanda Group hope the "Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis" -- covering 1.5 square miles -- will become a global magnet for film stars, movie studios and tourists.

The company said it had reached preliminary agreements with various media giants to shoot 30 foreign films in the studios each year, in addition to plans for 100 Chinese films and television shows.

The blueprint for the 'metropolis' includes plans for 20 studios and the world's only fixed underwater studio.
