more ada1852


Ok, I finally got a chance to try out ada1852, the Rhizome commissioned pie=
ce that received some rather negative comments on the list recently. I must=
say, I think it's pretty cool. Sure, conversing bots are far from new but =
if anyone here truly thinks they're doing something entirely new, I'll bet =
they're reinventing the wheel. What is new, of course, is using this form t=
o talk your way into the artbase and I think it works out really well.

ada1852


Each time I try to connect to ada1852 she says "Dear friend, I am sorry
but I am feeling quite ill today and shall not be able to converse with
you at this time. Please call on me again later. Good-bye."

Why is this? I really really want to try it out so this bothers me alot.

Looking for the new universal harmony


http://www.this.is/pallit/harmony
Icelandic artist Pall Thayer has released a new project titled "Looking for=
the new universal harmony". This is a multi-user interface allowing the us=
er to manipulate both sound and image. How the users interaction appears in=
the work is based on the users IP number. That's the "new universal" part.=
A persons identity on the internet has little or nothing to do with nation=
ality. What really defines us are our IP numbers so what I'm doing is seper=
ating all possible network identities into three different groups in the au=
dio portion and individually unique appearances (color) in the visual porti=
on. All of this is based on IP numbers rather than nationality. As many of =
you know, there are no nation-specific patterns in IP numbers. Even here in=
tiny Iceland I've seen IP numbers starting with anything from sixty-someth=
ing up to two hundred and seventeen.

Enjoy,
Pall Thayer

my new work again


Hi all,
My server was under a distributed denial of service attack, again. So
some people trying to view my beta test may not have been able to get
access. The server is now back up and running fine and I shouldn't be
having any more problems with it. Once again the URL is
http://130.208.220.190/nuharm/

As I say, this is a sort of beta stage so I'd appreciate any feedback.
I'd especially like to know how it goes for people with regular phone
modems (56k).

Best regards,
Pall
