[teh glorious interweb what got stuck in my :flash: camino tabs this past week]

a great idea

:flash: OMG, c’est le tour du Pod! – lapin found an iPod on the streets of zurich, wiped all but one song from the previous owner. now she will add one song and send the iPod on to the next person to add a song. brilliant. the blog will document the journey.

regine queen of media art (or whatever the currently hip term is)

:flash: Waw! A second Webby – regine won a second webby, a huge congratz! now shoot for the tripletta.

:flash: Intimate Game Controllers – “The woman’s controller is a bra with 6 sensors. The man’s controller has 6 sensors as well but in a pair of shorts.”

:flash: Book: Plastic Culture – How Japanese Toys Conquered the World – “Plastic Culture explores the world of toys: why we love them, what they represent, and why there is a growing market for “designer” and “art” toys aimed at adults.” how does she do it? regine’s book reviews always make me wanna order the book.

and more plastic books

:flash: je suis ne pas une PLASTIC BAG! – “a book I’m self-publishing, a collection of plastic carrier bags.” this is weird and fun.

HD DVD key can’t be buried

#09f911 #029d74 #e35bd8 #4156c5 #635688 #c0

:flash: HD DVD cracks: there’s no going back – “For a few hours, Digg’s front page consisted of little more than a succession of links to the hexadecimal HD DVD key.”

:flash: Digg This: 09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0 – “But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you’ve made it clear. You’d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company.” brave blogpost by kevin rose.

:flash: “Takedown This!” – “So… how do you DMCA a tattoo off of a person? Am I allowed to tell people that it’s a “09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0 tattoo”?”

:flash: Order your very own #09f911 #029d74 #e35bd8 #4156c5 #635688 #c0 hex colour t-shirt! – “Order your limited edition t-shirt showing that special code represented as hex colours!”

:flash: WoW protest – “Censorship dissent strikes the online community WoW!”

schmoos

:flash: OH! – Das Videomagazin – “OH! ist das erste, internationale Online-Videomagazin! OH! ist Experimentierfeld, provokativer Sprengsatz und virtuelle Cinématheque.” pretentious but nice. flash interfaces still suck tho.

:flash: Call for Apple to go even greener – “Greenpeace has given a cautious welcome to Apple’s ambitions to be more environmentally friendly.” go much greener apple. granny smith green.

:flash: Twitter Nation: Nobody cares what you’re doing – “To quote this now endlessly quoted line from the biggest in-crowder of all, tech blogger Robert Scoble, “Twitter hate is the new black.” meanwhile i still kinda love twitter… but then i never liked black, since my early 20’s.

:flash: Coachella Porn – “I was standing in the photo pit shooting the crowd. Everyone was so sweaty and naked. Looked like a big orgy.” [via bb]

:flash: Webby Nominees – the webby winners are announced, regine @ wmmna won, but also greenmyapple, samorost and etc.

:flash: Rise of the Internet Police State – “Accumulating, analyzing, co-operatively sharing, buying and selling personal information about us, primarily with the intention of helping companies develop targeted marketing campaigns, has become a multi-billion dollar industry”

:flash: SIM-Karte mit integriertem GPS-Empfänger – “Das französische Unternehmen Blue Sky Positioning blueskypositioning.com hat eine SIM-Karte vorgestellt, auf der ein GPS-Empfänger samt Antenne integriert ist.” the gps-chip integrated in the SIM card? seems much simpler than buying overpriced gps phones that dont work. yes, don’t buy the N95, or to use the famous ze frank line, “i bought the nokia N95, so you don’t have to”.

:flash: Last.fm Music Quilt in association with PHILIPS – “users of Lastfm come together to create the world’s largest music quilt. Users tag music with the word freedom if they feel it represents their idea of freedom.”

humor

:flash: printer doesn’t work – oh, doesn’t it now …

:flash: MausMaus – a mouse. literally.

impeach em

:flash: Impeach Cheney? What’s at stake if we don’t? – “The climate of fear which resulted from 911 was steadily nourished by this Administration to get support for their planned invasion of Iraq. Rational thinking, any thorough investigation and openness were tossed into the trash heap.”

:flash: sf_a28_photos.html – “a call for PEACE and to IMPEACH the president from around 1,500 in San Francisco”

game

:flash: World of Warcraft VISA Credit Card – the wow visa credit card. for US customers only atm. would i get one?

:flash: The Ball Of Bastards – the games are kinda silly, but it has got nice artwork. kinda funny. a double kinda…

:flash: My PS3 just killed my 360 – “Conditions in the confined space had become so super-heated that the 360 red-ringed out, big time.”

video kills the …

:flash: Arschloch des Tages – sing along now, i am an asshole…

:flash: Crazy Speech in Race For Tokyo Governor – there’s hope, this extremist received 10’000 votes in the elections for tokyo governor. [via bb]

:flash: Kouichi Toyama: return! – and here are the remixes.

:flash: Creep by Radiohead and Laith Bahrani – “… it contains over one million key frames. i know this because i counted them. i counted them because i made this animation …” [via frenzine]

:flash: My Boy Lollipop – animated aids campaign (quite sexy) and the song they used in original version (not very at all).

:flash: child.mov – nice scribble animation with kids, eggs and such. [thx f.]

:flash: Doelpunten Maradona en Messi exact naast elkaar gelegd – messi’s and maradona’s goal in splitscreen, but more important, check out the commentator 😉
