Don’t you think dreams and the internet are similar? (via Rhizome)
Thank you to all who helped us select a logo in our Re:Flex design challenge! The above image is the winning result of our contest by user Benchmark_99. We’re currently writing a paper on the system for the Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) 2012 and have submitted a poster proposal to WikiSym 2011 with screenshots of our tools incorporating the logo and they’re looking great! Thanks again!
beyonce, you’re getting called-out. so are you, neo-liberal feminism.
Reposting because I love this a lot.
I think there’s room for both proactivity and girl power anthems, but I am behind a lot of what she’s saying here. Resposting as I read Thompson’s “Women and Feminism in Technical Communication” and resulting discussion from Sauer, which is a research thread I suggest taking a look at for all of those interested in feminism in HCI.
Please help us vote on a logo for our visualization toolkit, Re:Flex!
Since the Fall, Mark Zachry, David McDonald and myself in the Communicative Practices in Virtual Workspaces Lab at UW have been developing an application that visualizes the relationships between editors and other editors as well as editors and articles on Wikipedia. This application exposes the social layer that creates the encyclopedic work of Wikipedia. We are calling this visualization toolkit Re:Flex which stands for Reflexive, Flexible Reputation System, but also supports a number of other similarly-stemmed words like reminiscence, retrospection, reflective, etc.
We have narrowed to 8 top designs. Please help us narrow to 1 winner!
ATTENTION MUSICIANS: Lauren and I are getting close to releasing a new short film, but it’s missing one thing - original music. Sure, we could argue fair-use and sample a few popular tunes, but we got to thinking… let’s extend our original collaboration with talented artists we love, or maybe don’t even know yet through THE INTERNET.
We’d like to incorporate four original, royalty-free, preferably instrumental songs into our six-minute short documentary about… well, you’ll have to email us for that info.
If you’re a musician, and are intrigued by the idea of collaborating and helping us score our film, we’re offering the opportunity and credit. The cut is ready to go - just needs a score, so if you’re into the idea send me an email with links to your work, and we’ll go from there.
You can also reach me at email@example.com. Please re-blog!

are the intelligence the only band i care about? maybe. probably.
TacocaT once said if the Seattle scene were Mariah Carey that the Intelligence would be “Always Be My Baby”. One of my favorite things to be said about another thing and also a fact.
