Mapping the Social


Only if those check-ins are truthful right? Or I suppose, from the data sets you mentioned it would be about where certain demographics wanted people to know they were frequenting... thus creating some sort of pscyhogeographical brand image I guess

About a year ago my friend Misha Rabinovich coded something to check himself in as many times as he could so that he create a portrait of his own face onto the American map. The project was called Solace 2.0 but right now his site is hacked so i'll spare us the bogus link. Foursquare didn't find out til months later.

Art on the Beautiful Island


Good feature on Taiwan. While I was there for a quick trip over the winter break I saw a survey show of "new media art" as we know it, with tons of big names like Nam June Paik and Bill Viola and also Chinese/international artists. http://www.kdmofa.tnua.edu.tw/en/index.php?REQUEST_ID=bW9kPWV4JnBhZ2U9ZGV0YWlsJllZPTIwMTImRUlEPTEwMQ

It was a lot of work (maybe more than 30) crammed into the Kuandu Museum and the venue was hard to find as it was buried in a city university, but there were many interactive/robotic pieces. From Chinese artists there was a lot of video installation of performance with technology and also interactive work. Some weren't working and docents would rush over to tell you how to "use" it. Seems like they aren't accustomed to new media installation yet but they have something going on there...
