Oh, yeah. That's how I always start out as well. I have my Information
Architect (capitalized of course, like God) develop a wireframe that my
designers (not capitalized) adhere to (sounds to me like we're making a
mobile). Then we hang the wireframe from the ceiling, over the baby's
crib so she can lie there and watch the dangling designers.

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
