NewKulture! Bridging art, design & technology NewKulture truly believes in the power of “inspiring” design and aesthetics in our lives, cities, urban spaces, fashion, living rooms, classrooms, wardrobe and the world we live in. Design is not only about making things pretty, it’s a process, a mind set, a movement to resolve and find solutions to real-life contemporary issues. At NK, we believe in collaboration, exchange of information, understanding of different cultures beyond any race, religion and borders. We are envisioning projects and products, which are innovative and inspiring and bring in art, design, culture and technology together. NewKulture is interested in looking into inventing new markets, the deconstruction of ideas, design, and new ways of seeing ideas around us. NK will connect with architects, visual artists, interactive designers, filmmakers, technologists, programmers, and storytellers to come together and take part with us in creating NewKulture.

Oddspaces/ Tweet Garden

Oddspaces/ Tweet Garden | NewKulture | Scoop.it
Faisal Anwar's insight:

Oddspaces (09-2013)

In 2013, The Oddspaces/ Tweet Garden will be situated in Toronto, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and beyond. Audiences from each location will use virtual interaction and communicate to create a real-time collaborative installation via Twitter. The installation consists of a virtual tree projected in all locations that grows during the course of the interactive exhibition (January31st until March 31st 2013). Audiences will interact using their Twitter accounts to tweet with the hashtag #CDNmoments and see their messages become a leaf as part of the tree’s growth. Watch the Tweet Garden grow

How to participate in the National Projections:

1. We Need Your Tweets! Answer the question, Canadian Moments: What's Yours? And tweet it with #CDNmoments. Responses will appear as part of a interactive digital art piece that features defining moments from across the country.

2. Join us at House of Moments in Toronto. 386 Carlaw Street, Toronto. Doors open at 6pm EST. Be prepared to share your defining moment (https://www.tigurl.org/np_toronto)!  featured an interactive projection, a panel discussion, a Defining Moments exhibit, and an Art Battle live competitive painting session. We will also connect with individuals and artists from across Canada who will share their defining moment living in Canada.

3. Can't join us in Toronto at House of Moments? Watch the Tweet Garden grow online with each new tweet starting January 31st. Have a projector? Project it in your community, school, office space, etc.

That's ok Robin ;-)

Thanks again for skyping into the conference, doing the video, and creating the map! I learned a lot and so did the 300 ngos in the room. And, I've been slowly playing with the tools on this list and now really adore trap.it!
Coleman Foley's comment, February 16, 2012 3:19 PM
Xydo is still a discovery engine, but is now focused on discovering content for email marketers. The rest of the list seems to be more focused on general purpose news discovery.
From their new home page:

"Easily find white-hot content that’s relevant to your business and customers."

Quickly create beautiful, white-labeled emails optimized for web, email, and mobile.

Track every action: opens, clicks, shares, etc. — down to an individual subscriber."

Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services

Bad News for Video Curation Startups: Magnify Gets Patent and Permission To Sue Video Curation Services | NewKulture | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Nonetheless Magnify.net founder Steven Rosenbaum states "“I believe in the freedom of innovation", his company has just been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,117,545 covering hosted video discovery and publishing platforms.

 

The patent description clearly covers any web-based service which allows you to create a topic-specific channel with manually or auto-curated video content.

 

Here the exact wording: "A hosted system provides any Internet user with the ability to quickly set up and customize a video channel, preferably as a web page or site that can be reached from any Internet-accessible device having a web browser.

 

The solution includes tools for use by channel site creators to customize the look, feel, and page design.

 

A particular web page or site may be associated with a given subject.

 

As used herein, a page or site that has such an association is sometimes referred to as “subject-specific...” 

 

I don't know what's your take on this, but I personally don't see this as good news for curation and video curation startups, who are presently innovating in this space (like Blinkx, Redux, Chill, Vodpod, Magma, Yokto, Shufflr, Griddeo, Shortform, Mixd.tv, Embedr, Plizy, Vidcaster, Yubby, and many others).

 

Patents, whether in the hands of large or small players are the antithesis of open innovation and it is for me difficult to support who in the name of a better future, choses to utilize the means of his worst enemies to achieve its business ends. 

 

While Magnify.net investors may indeed pretty happy about this, I am not.

 

Worrysome. 4/10 (Pass this news on)

What does he mean by 'economic rules'? <br>Fortunately, it seems they did not sue any of the companies so far.
