Boing Boing excavates the back and forth of gender in children’s toys. Is anyone in the high tech field actually “normally” gendered or is gender malfunction somehow endemic to being a “nerd”?
indie games blog
Indie games blog has found a game that intreprets 5 canonical novels into video games… and then finds a link between. P.s. also check out chewy on indie games hub looks cool.
unicode the movie
Grand text auto links to a movie in which each frame is one character from unicode and given i believe one second. It takes 33 minutes in other words to spend even a second on all the characters that make up our information world. There’s definitely a lot more to this, but sadly I’m not taking jared lanier’s advice and thinking about my post rather I’m thinking as I post… it’s what the jazz dudes do.
One qoute from James Gleick’s The Information:
Language is not a technology… language is what the mind does.
Thanks for clarifying that James 🙂
Anyway, I have massive sunburn, hang over, exposure, and sea sickness.
