“Some people seem to think that getting acquired should be the highest aspiration for an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. I disagree vehemently.” Vinod Khosla recently complained that the current crop of startups in Silicon Valley seems to be obesssed with getting accquired and cashing out – which used to not be the highest aspiration. As […]
Bishop seems to be saying that Digital Art hasn’t happened, that digital technologies have been used, but the areas explored were already considered during the previous, analogue age. Harger writes in “Why Contemporary Art Fails to come to grips with digital – a response to Claire Bishop” – states early on that she will ignore […]
Kris Paulsen sets out to review SFMOMA’s recent retrospective on participatory art, of particular interest to me after Hellicar&Lewis’s recent project for the AND Festival – “Caravideo”.

Coxsone Dodd and King Tubby would tell you that. Finally, […]
Does exactly what it says on the tin. I actually made a costume like this for Comic Relief back in the day. This made me think of the infamous JWZ rant on Netscape source swearing.
Getting meta. Meta is one my favourite words of the moment. Along with Tek. Reminds me of the classic, “Musican enters look a like content of themselves and comes second” meme. The idea of a light cone is amazing, I am sure you could build a new religion around it. You can even track your […]
