everything is a remix

teil 1 von 4, von everything is a remix, ist vor ein paar tagen online gegangen. wie der titel schon sagt, gehts um die remixkultur, die keineswegs ein neues phaenomen ist:

Remixing is a folk art but the techniques involved — collecting material, combining it, transforming it — are the same ones used at any level of creation. You could even say that everything is a remix.

Die letzten Tage gab es wieder ein paar Meldungen rund um E-Voting und im Speziellen auch zu Wahlcomputern. Das soll an dieser Stelle natürlich nicht unerwähnt bleiben. Deshalb kurz zusammengefasst die Artikel:

Report: Voting Machine Errors Highlight Urgent Need for U.S. Database

The report, released Wednesday by the Brennan Center for Justice, calls on Congress to provide authority for the federal Election Assistance Commission, or EAC, or some other federal agency to establish and maintain a publicly searchable database and to require voting machine vendors to report problems to the database so election officials can take steps to prevent failures from repeating.

Internet: The Movie
is a video made in 1997 to explain the then-fairly-young internet to individuals looking to get in on the action. However, what’s really funny to see in this movie is the ridiculous ‘plot’ in between the educational parts, and to try to make sense of most of the included segments’ relevance to the explanation of the internet itself. But then 40 minutes of content would be lost. The beginning is really some of the best parts (in that they are the worst parts) of how the movie sought to relate the internet to people. It trails off at the end as eventually they just start explaining how to do things in… Netscape. It’s worth it to watch just because somewhere in the middle, the video suggests that using the internet is too hard and tells you that you should go make a sandwich instead.

gnihihihi…. :D
