there is something off with that lightsaber. i think it is her gesture. visually, it doesn't work at all.

and btw - that is not a jedi saber nor a sith saber. it is a "kylo ren" sabre.

i've been contemplating integrating reverse lookup into #foundobject posts. i think authors should be credited. however the purpose of these posts is to initiate a thought process about an environment (film, installation, bd).

and not knowing the artist or the context of creation and theme is in fact critical for this process to happen.

but the fact that me not wanting to know, doesn't mean my visitors don't want to know. so, this is and example of the previous post.

I was surprised by Apple promoting something like this, something that I always saw as a huge security risk.

In Portugal, citizens have an id number, a taxpayer number and a social security number - not to mention a driving license number. All these numbers are different because there is an assumption of separation of information that is beneficial to privacy. When I buy something, I have to provide my taxpayer number, but not my id one. And that is important.

Many years ago I was asked to implement a pre-purchased script on a website I maintained, one that gets the list of contacts of the user from several online email providers. That day, I decided that I had to change jobs as soon as possible.

Do not place you username and password on a site other than the one where those credentials are valid. Period.

Untitled Project temp name Project Rashomon. It is an environmental installation that appropriates the film Rashomon (1950) by Kurosawa. As the director shows us the retelling of the crime by the witnesses, he does it by adapting the composition, montage and actor's performance to serve the witness argument.

In this installation the user is able to enact the film and change the original testimonials, by manipulating a set of environmental constraints, in fact creating their own version testimonial, becoming also a witness.

peter gabriel said that the worst request anyone can ask to an artist is to tell them that they can do whatever they want. he said that the most interesting objects are created because there are constraints that have to be dealt with.

i agree.

and that's why I think it's so interesting the prospect of soderbergh wanting to make a movie using the iphone.

you practice technique to get your fingers to go where you want them to go. you practice theory to understand where they can go and why.

-- tom morello @ https://www.masterclass.com/classes/tom-morello-teaches-electric-guitar

the keyword is why.

i stole this argument because it's similar to what I use in open classes. we should all consider attending university at some point in our lives. a good time will be when we begin to ask ourselves "why am I doing it and why is it important"?

https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-10-year-meme-challenge/

the problem is not so much, why facebook needs this (did they started it?), but the fact that participants of this event are contributing to the creation of a structured database that can be used by a data broker to connect, for example, two datasets separated by a few years with the least effort - a browser navigation robot connected to a screen scrapper.

Had a page on hi5 or myspace? posted pictures of yourself?

it is very unlikely that this is the goal but that is not important. what is important is that something that was almost impossible, becomes attainable.

we sometimes forget that what in the common lexicon is known as a hastag, that meta-comment prefixed with a cardinal sign that expands the meaning and context of a post is also known by two other names: descriptor or search criteria.

Jan 16, 2019 12:30
as I was researching social media networks as a publicity platform, I began to realize that for the content producer - and the added value associated with such content - they are a mousetrap.

the user creates the added value, which is then exploited by a platform that does nothing but spread it on a large scale (this could be an asset if only a few users could take advantage of it, which is not the case).

so it is nice when companies with a strategic vision very close to mine make a decision that I would take (and did): https://m.signalvnoise.com/signal-v-noise-exits-medium/

in fact, my perspective on the subject goes further. in my blog there are no comments. it is not a fault. it is by design.

whether or not you agree with something I said, do not say it on my blog, say it in yours. you can always include a link to my post if you want.

the #bcon18 talk i mentioned earlier by @brentpatterson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZSRAcFlOfQ. in portugal, in media production this is so true. vocational and university students argue hard in favor of pro software as a must-have for employability. so they invest in learning the software, instead of the actual techniques.

and what happens is that the pro actually hides some pro knowledge like knowing about color channels and what is (mathmatically) a blend mode. classic stuff are "this layer system is doesn't work like photoshop" or the "where is the history window?"
