A weird thing happened via SXSW on Saturday during Julian Assange’s keynote. It was one of those things that I love and hate about social media. Sat in my friends kitchen in Manchester I followed the livecast (brilliantly hosted by Texas Tribune), and at the opportune moment I dropped…

MUST SEE & Important: This is the following conversation between Assange and Snowden. Obama’s mad at them stealing Microsoft. LOL.

I have a sneaking suspicion these people are from the comments section at Gawker. Sigh, the good old days.

Oh, social media bots! A 21st century sitcom.

Actually, I’m not so sure this was a bot. There are a lot of underemployed hipsters with post-ironic sensibilities in social media.

ild animals living in unexplored forests are being captured on hidden cameras for a unique experimental iPhone app and website.
Instant Wild Logo

The Zoological Society of London’s (ZSL) Instant WILD app and website hopes to revolutionise the way conservationists monitor remote wildlife hotspots around the world.

Images triggered by wild animals walking past are sent straight to you in real-time – meaning users can get a rare glimpse into the lives of lions, elephants or wild dogs on their commute home.

Motion sensitive cameras have already been set up by forest clearings, watering holes and plains in Kenya, Sri Lanka and Mongolia.

Teletext Art - An Overview

Interesting article from Goto80 on the creative exploration of an early accessible electronic information medium :

If you describe teletext as obsolete, you couldn’t be more wrong. It is one of the most popular media in Scandinavia. Here in Sweden for example, teletext is still the #1 public service medium, and commercial channels still sell plenty of advertising for it. Despite public service serving people with decent content on tv and www, most of us can not stay away from teletext. It remains the #1 public service medium in Sweden, and in 2011 it was also the most popular app for the iPad, and the third most popular iPhone-app. Stick it to the hi-res man!

And you’re thinking: omg wtf lol why? I’m not sure. But it’s not due to a lack of fast internet. The access to high speed broadband internet is high around here, which indicates that “internet” is not a competitor to teletext. Teletext was not replaced by www, because the hi-res spam freedom of the web is no match for the editorial no-bullshit-no-advertising tranquility of teletext. Atleast not for the time being.
