Vivalist's curator insight, January 23, 10:36 AM

"1,000 people in the U.S. will get early access on January 21 to an alternative, free app version, but have only 24 hours to finish it before it disappears in [...] "a cinematic and spectacular way." If you're not one of the first 1,000 readers, you can still follow their progress in real-time and have the ability to "steal" time from those readers through a new site, SelfDestructingBook.com. Designed to
bring the thrill of Patterson’s book to new heights, the site shows who and where in the world the book's early readers are, how far along through the book they've read and gives you the option to sabotage their efforts by cutting their 24 hours short."

Great Post. The Raid: The six-minute ‘True Detective’ tracking shot, and the night TV change | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
There’s a scene toward the end of Visions of Light: The Art of Cinematography in which Michael Chapman talks about the work he did with Martin Scorsese on Raging Bull. He mentions Scorsese’s understanding of what “the storytelling of a shot is really going to be … all you need is this one shot, and it’s so good, and so evocative, and so powerful, emotionally, that it will get you from A to B without any coverage, without any worry.”

I really enjoyed True Detective, this article has some great insights about it's visual language. 

 

"Here we had a director who seemed to take every frame, every movement, every bit of shadow, and every movement of the camera as seriously as the story. "


"It is, first and foremost, a story about storytelling. Characters are constantly talking about “characters.” (“This world is a veil. And the face you wear is not your own”).

The Truth About Teenagers, The Internet, And Privacy

The Truth About Teenagers, The Internet, And Privacy | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Last year, USC’s Annenberg Center for the Digital Future released research showing that younger Internet users are more comfortable sharing their personal data than their older counterparts. Commenting on the data, Jeffrey Cole, the Center’s director, went so far as to declare, "Online privacy is dead." But then, a few months later, a slew of data reflected very different results: Harris Interactive found that the 78% of millennials expressed a wish for privacy, compared to 59% of older internet users. Pew Internet also found that users aged 18 to 29 are more likely to have cleared their browsing histories, disabled cookies or declined to use their real name on a website.

Are Hollow Icons Really Harder to Recognize Than Solid Icons? A Research Study | Viget

Are Hollow Icons Really Harder to Recognize Than Solid Icons? A Research Study | Viget | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Last summer software designer Aubrey Johnson published a post on Medium with a specific critique of Apple’s brand new mobile operating system, iOS7. Johnson suggested that Apple’s new “hollow” icons, being more visually complex than “solid” icons, create cognitive fatigue for users that will eventually lead them to tire of the interface and stop using it. The timely, bite-sized post was shared and discussed widely, with some designers affirming it as sensible advice and others criticizing it as overblown, oversimplified, and lacking valid evidence.

Instead, it practically started World War III.

How information moves between cultures | Larry Hardesty | MIT News

How information moves between cultures | Larry Hardesty | MIT News | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

By analyzing data on multilingual Twitter users and Wikipedia editors and on 30 years’ worth of book translations in 150 countries, researchers at MIT, Harvard University, Northeastern University, and Aix Marseille University have developed network maps that they say represent the strength of the cultural connections between speakers of different languages.

This week, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they show that a language’s centrality in their network — as defined by both the number and the strength of its connections — better predicts the global fame of its speakers than either the population or the wealth of the countries in which it is spoken.

“The network of languages that are being translated is an aggregation of the social network of the planet,” says Cesar Hidalgo, the Asahi Broadcasting Corporation Career Development Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and senior author on the paper. “Not everybody shares a language with everyone else, and therefore the global social network is structured through these circuitous paths in which people in some language groups are by definition way more central than others. That gives them a disproportionate power and responsibility. On the one hand, they have a much easier time disseminating the content that they produce. On the other hand, as information flows through people, it gets colored by the ideas and the biases that those people have.”
