IM Peaches, Bushes for free!

Is there any doubt any longer about what needs to be done? Don't u all find it A BIT ABSURD that we are supposed to be criminals now for(inducing) filesharing, ripping, mixing, burning (CD's), and some people can just get away with ripping (off) mixing (up) burning (whole cities and countries) and murder without any consequences? I cant be the only one. Music by the Presidents of The United States of America. Excuse me this forage into the protected domain...just this once, i promise :)

The Surfer Behind the Exile

Hmnn...lets see, videoblogs have peeople in them dont they? Figured it was about time to come out of the closet and give u all a hint of what the exiledsurfer looks like when producing his content for the artificialeye...a self portrait, so to speak, closer to what most videoblogs are about... no speaking though, just a hot track from mashuptown, Devoutcast. Draw your own conclusions.

The worlds first VJ Widgetcast plus Artificial EyeTunes

artificialeyetunes.png Yeah man, following in the footsteps of FireAnt, now u can subscribe to the ArtificialEye via itunes 4.9!! Thats right, not only does the latest version of itunes support podcasts, it supports videoblogs too! Just go to the menu choice "advanced" and select "subscribe to podcast" and enter the rss feed url... and voila, u can see the artificial eye in all its glory in your itunes window...And if that is just too oldskool for you, you can download our custom made ArtificialEye Video RSS Widget for OSX 10.4 Tiger.


Our widget was designed and animated in Maya, and combines for the first time Javascript for Quicktime with Javascript, CSS, RSS, and a custom hacked XMLHTTP request patch into one widget, gives you the latest five feeds from the ArtificialEye in its own player on your desktop! I guess that makes it the world's first VJ Widgetcast!

I Build Mesh Networks

boingboing/craphound cyberpunk Cory Doctorow has a new book out, titled "Someone comes to town, Someone leaves town" which is a small departure and a great leap forward in style and subject matter from his previous outings in the SF genre, but which remains true to his contemporary areas of interest. Lets just say that i can't agree with him more in his framing of the freedom of access debate in a zeitgeist fairy tale of good vs evil remniscent of the science fiction trilogy by C.S. Lewis. For sound i award him the musical accompaniement of "silverocelli" by the Order of The Silver Cosmonauts whose aim is to "create a vortex of attention and sound in galactic propulsion preparation with the resulting momentary sonic gravity lens enabling ontological tweening and planetary preening." Enjoy the clip, download the book, support the creative commons :)

Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously

From wikipedia: Colorless green ideas sleep furiously is a sentence composed by Noam Chomsky in 1957 as an example of a sentence whose grammar is correct but whose meaning is nonsensical. If you havent noticed, fALk's favorite colour is green, that of this blog and its elements... home of where "Newly formed bland ideas are unexpressible in an infuriating way." And this time without music :)

Four O Four For Money

So the truth has to come out...falk has been so busy NOT posting to the blog that i sort of put an unofficial boycott on myself since my content was filling up the site (and this is supposed to be a group project!)... but since its been soooo long, i figured, well, better get SOMETHING up... so if u could just imagine for a second that i havent been posting to the site because i suffered a Distributed Denial of Service Attack, well, u might understand why we have been so b0rk3d around here this last month. How's that for a good excuse? Music is an unreleased IDM (intelligent dance music) track from a barista named Bayrak who makes my daily fredocino in the gourmet coffeeshop i frequent in istanbul, which now has WIFI. What a great combination.

Patriots and Open Source Cells

Seems everyone has been too busy with other things to get anything posted.

A couple of things caught my eye this week. AgentCell, a joint University of Chicago and Department of Energy project has developed software to simulate the intracellular processes and behavior of individual cells. The software, which includes a 3D environment for the cells to move about in, is being released under a BSD license.

The Patriot Act was quietly extended to grant the FBI the power to conduct searches without having to obtain Judicial order.

Music: Morganistic's In The Shadow mixed with the argument from the U.S. Supreme Court hearing of Kent v. Dulles.
