teh glorious interweb as it got stuck in my camino tabs this past week – the edited version.

online video killed the …

Ninja Hide and Seek – "Quite possibly the stealthiest 2-year-old in the history of the game." i never saw her either.

CHELSEA vs MANCHESTER UTD 1-0…a fan brushing their teeth during the match – strange moment during the recent premier league game, the guy claims he always takes his toothbrush along. the question i had, where did he spit out?

Pigeon: Impossible – "Pigeon: Impossible is the tale of Walter, a rookie secret agent faced with a problem seldom covered in basic training: what to do when a curious pigeon gets trapped inside your multi-million dollar, government-issued nuclear briefcase."

Guy dancing like Michael Jackson at a bus stop – he seems to do this on various days, according to the changing clothes.

schmooze and abuse

SLEEPBOX – "We believe that urban infrastructure should be more comfortable for people. For this purpose we have developed a device SLEEPBOX. It provides moments of quiet sleep and rest from the city without wasting time searching for a hotel." i love how the sheets automatically change.

International Vegetarian Union – "Vegetables are all your body needs" and i am living proof 😉

Copyright Watch | Global Transparency in Copyright Law – "Copyright Watch collects and monitors copyright laws from all over the world." didnt find the RSS feed tho ;(

It Made My Day – Little Moments of WIN – "Told my 13-yr-old daughter that she could swear as much as she wanted for one afternoon to get it out of her system. She said “Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck can I call Grandma?”" next time ill think or say such and such made my day, i might just post it here.

Le Donk Film Store – "Item is ONLY available for sale in UK" oh ffs!

The Large Hadron Collider leaps off the page – "Are you flummoxed by the intricacies of the Large Hadron Collider? Most people are, and so the scientists at CERN have come up with a novel way of explaining their work – a pop-up book, which will be available from the end of this month." i always find it cute when scientists try to explain stuff in laymans terms, it always fails.

Activism Doubt: Harmen de Hoop & Jonas Staal – "In their project, De Hoop and Staal react on these limitation, using public space as their artistic ‘canvas’, and working with statements, media representation, manifestation, actions, doubt and a lot of humor." love the guy screaming “jelzin, come out” on red army square.

The Cloud, London – "Cloud technology is fast becoming the method of choice for users that want to access all their information where-ever they are in the world… but an actual 'Digital Cloud' is being pondered to be a centre piece of the city's Olympic village." would be very impressive.

Fresh Stuff From Blu in Bogota – blu's stuff always amazes me.

The Gorillaz' Manifesto for a Better Tomorrow – "As part of our 25 Big Ideas for 2010 feature, Murdoc Niccals from Gorillaz preaches his Manifesto for a Better Tomorrow. We can look forward to interesting times indeed." some bizzare, some very valid points.

Venice Biennale: Juan Burgos at the pavilion of Uruguay – "This year Uruguay decided to invite three artists to its pavilion. Juan Burgos' flamboyant paper collages caught all my attention." this one i missed. looks awesome.

Rushkoff on his new alternate reality game – "The object of the game right now is for the players to build the "Darknet," an alternative network through which a global resistance can operate, and people can begin to piece together why NASA scientists are being rounded up and what the hell happened over the skies in Los Angeles."

How news will change in Google's eyes – "In addition, the unsatisfied experience you make today when reading a news website could vanish by this feature. A list of looked at articles gives you a feeling that you have actually done something while now the only feeling that is left after scanning a website is that there is soo much more which you missed. Of course, a flipped-through magazine or newspapers already gives you that satiesfied "been there, seen that" feeling today. Sometimes the future lies in the past."

How To Spam Facebook Like A Pro: An Insider’s Confession – "I generated millions of dollars from these offers on Facebook – I am not proud of it, but it was very lucrative. I will walk you through how these online scams work on Facebook and other social networks – the mechanics of how the money is made, some of the people involved, and who is actually clicking on ads." weird title, i hope it doesnt “inspire” people to do this, but interesting inside view of this questionable trade.

A New Vibrator by Yves Behar Arouses Our Interest – "The Form 2 takes a two-pronged approach to the vibrator, giving its user what they're calling "Sensation in Stereo." The "ears" can be positioned independently like a Gumby action figure for maximum, um, range, and the entire thing is made from phthalate-free platinum silicone to be completely waterproof. There's even a cute iPod-esque docking station for charging and it can operate UP TO SEVEN HOURS on a single charge." sexy!

The Ancient Hebrew Conception of the Universe – "The Hebrews were inspired by nothing more than their political and religious motivations. Thus, being ignorant of scientific facts, they thought the earth was flat, that sick people were possessed by demons, and that essentially everything was caused by either gods or demons. Unfortunately, many people are still just as ignorant today."

The Beatles Never Broke Up… – "On Sept. 9, 2009 I experienced something that I still am having trouble believing happened to me. I came into the possession of a cassette tape containing a Beatles album that was never released." nice.

John Fekner and the Berlin Wall – "In commemoration of the Berlin Wall coming down on Nov 9 1989 we thought we'd share this story about John Fekner. In 1986, Fekner spent time in Berlin as part of an invitation group exhibition featuring collaborations by New York and German artists. He visited East Germany entering through Checkpoint Charlie; the visit left a strong impression on Fekner, and subsequently, the work he created while in Berlin."

what beautiful HTML looks like – "HTML5 and its new elements make for the most beautiful HTML yet." sums up all the important additions in html 5.

Framed for Child Porn _ by a PC Virus – "Of all the sinister things that Internet viruses do, this might be the worst: They can make you an unsuspecting collector of child pornography." what a nightmare..

Malcolm X was bisexual. Get over it – "Perhaps it is unintentional but Black History Month sometimes feels like Straight Black History Month. Famous black LGBT people are not acknowledged and celebrated. Either their contribution to black history and culture is ignored or their sexuality is airbrushed out of their biographies." ok ok, but was he bike-curious too? like butters?

The Jobless Rate for People Like You – "Not all groups have felt the recession equally." visualzies how it hits the young, coloured people hardest.

swiss focus

Switzerland takes Google to court – "Web search giant Google faces a court case in Switzerland because of privacy concerns over its Street View service." oh switzerland, you had to go there … or subscribe to this RSS feed – with all the typos.
