How to Make Viral Content: 9 Tips from the Greatest Viral Content Genius on the Planet

How to Make Viral Content: 9 Tips from the Greatest Viral Content Genius on the Planet | Socialart | Scoop.it
Neetzan Zimmerman is a master at creating blog posts that spread like wildfire across social networks. You could learn a lot from him.
talentosprecato's insight:

“I never self-promote,” he says. “I find it tacky. That’s just never been my style, and I’ve done well enough without it that it never occurred to me to change.”


Neetzan Zimmerman is a genius at creating viral content. For the past two years he’s worked at Gawker, one of the world’s biggest blogs. Month in and month out, he generated more traffic than all of Gawker’s other writers combined. He just got poached away from Gawker by Whisper, a hot social networking startup in Los Angeles, where he will be editor-in-chief.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, May 2, 9:43 PM
Fascinating story of how an Australian computer scientist became "Satoshi Nakamoto"--the founder of Bitcoin.  Even if this isn't true, Craig Wright tells an interesting story.

myconnect, interactive installation - questions division of nature-human-technology // #mediaart

myconnect, interactive installation - questions division of nature-human-technology // #mediaart | Socialart | Scoop.it

Artwork by Saša Spačal, Mirjan Švagelj, Anil Podgornik

Myconnect is a symbiotic interspecies connector that questions anthropocentric division of nature-human-technology. With its circuit of signals and impulses, that are generated and translated by biological and technological organisms, Myconnect performs an immersive experience of symbiotic interdependence. Through this experience distinction between nature-man-technology can be seen as an arbitrary definition that serves particular biopolitical interests in human society, which can than be shamelessly wrapped in an ideology of utilitarianism and may conceal excessive exploitation.


Myconnect creates an experience of connectedness, of unqualified immersion through the sensory system of the body. The experience of symbiosis in Myconnect capsule is somewhat isolated, like microbiological cultures are isolated in a laboratory. In Myconnect symbiosis is purposefully separated from the environment in order to make it visible, audible and haptic for the visitor.

 

Myconnect is a neural connection, a sort of ‘tsaheylu’ from the sci-fi film Avatar. Tsaheylu means in Na’vi language a bond, a neural connection of two beings on Pandora planet formed via their neural queues. Na’vi connect to animals or plants that possess a neural whip or antenna. Neural connection can be formed also between two Na’vis during mating supposedly forming a strong, emotional, lifelong bond. Tsaheylu enables Na’vi deeper understanding of their environment since any emotion or pain is felt on both sides of the neural queues. Na’vi extend and transgress their body. They are becoming the environment thus blurring the body-environment division.

La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé

La vie devient matériau. Le #bioart à travers l'oeuvre de Lu Yang par Catherine Barnabé | Socialart | Scoop.it

Lu Yang est une jeune artiste dont les travaux s’inscrivent dans le courant du bio-art, une pratique qui consiste en l’utilisation des biotechnologies comme méthode de travail pour la réalisation de projets artistiques. De manière générale, les artistes du bio-art utilisent le vivant comme matière première.

 

Ils s’en approprient les ressources plastiques et scientifiques afin de développer une pratique tout à fait singulière dans laquelle s’amalgament les arts et les sciences, notamment la biologie moléculaire, la génétique et l’informatique. Les artistes qui touchent à ce type de pratique ne possèdent pas toujours les connaissances scientifiques suffisantes pour concevoir leurs projets, ils collaborent ainsi avec des experts qui les encadrent dans leurs réalisations.

 

De nombreuses questions éthiques émergent en observant les travaux de certains artistes qui utilisent, par exemple, des tissus humains ou encore, des êtres vivants, souvent vulnérables, pour mener à bien leurs projets. Les œuvres audacieuses de Lu Yang, que l’on peut qualifier d’expériences, mettent en doute notre morale et interrogent certains fondements des comportements éthiques socialement acceptables.

Twitter writes Hamlet - #netart installation by Emmanuel Pire // #mediaart #artnumerique

Twitter writes Hamlet - #netart installation by Emmanuel Pire // #mediaart #artnumerique | Socialart | Scoop.it
“If you put 100 monkeys with typewriters in a room long enough, eventually you'll get Hamlet.”

 

A monkey on a typewriter would produce random letters. 6 random letters could be dhsllr or hamlet or klefim. Sometimes randomness produces sequences that seem not random. But the fact that snake has meaning but uvzmp has not is pretty much arbitrary. Some sequence of letters have meaning, some don’t.

 

Out of a random sequence of letters, it all boils down to probabilities. Out of a set of 26 letters, a sequence of 5 of them have about 1 / 12 billion (26^5) chance of being exactly the word snake. The probability of getting a certain word or sentence goes down as you add more letters.

 

So how about a full book ? The version of Hamlet I’m using has about 170k characters. Out of a reduced alphabet of 26 letters + 1 space (leaving out all the ponctuation), the amount of possible combinations for a set of 170000 characters is ridiculous (it’s a 240k+ digits figure).

 

Very unlikely, but theoretically possible. ....

That Emoji Does Not Mean What You Think It Means | Socialart | Scoop.it
By now you probably know that the emoji you send on an iPhone might not be the emoji that is received on a Nexus. Since emoji are designed differently across platforms, sometimes your text messages might get lost in translation. But how differently might your well-intentioned emoji be displayed? The reality might surprise you.

It's an online social experiment she calls 
The Empathy Effect.

 
When the project wraps in June 2016, she'll award a cash donation of $5,000 to a nonprofit representing the cause that generates the most engagement (measured in Likes and shares). Smiley hopes the gift "transmits a little more empathy into the world" beyond Facebook.

"Life can be unkind and unfair," said Smiley. "But it is so much more beautiful when glimmers of empathy punctuate the darkness."

Research: Video games driving English language skills; other languages suffer | Socialart | Scoop.it
Research has shown that students who spend time playing online computer or console games reap an added benefit – good grades in English. The study by Helsinki University research student Olli Uuskoski shows that boys in particular tend to enjoy a big payoff, since they can more often be found with a game controller in hand than girls. As English grows in popularity among students, other languages are being left behind.
