Automatic Media site, complete with press release issued today. There’s also a FAQ, in which it is stated, “Users will find that many of the features they’re accustomed to finding at traditional portals — free email, home page creation, threaded discussion, news filtering, personal ads, etc. — will be integrated into Automatic Media sites in a more intuitive, adaptive way than they’ve encountered elsewhere.” I think they can do it – I hope so, at least.
Just got an email
from Station Rose announcing their 114th webcast.
STReaming a la Station Rose, started in January 1999, blends performance, lecture (STR in conversation with guests in the studio) and multimedia jam sessions into a unique form of Net Art. 112 webcasts have taken place so far. Main topics in the program of Station Rose webcasts are live-sessions in realtime, where sounds&visuals are streamed from the studio into the net.
I recently came across
an interesting site called artengine, which is an online gallery based in Ottawa. My friend Julien’s sister is showing her work, the reliquarium. She does text/object associations, one a day all year. The primary medium is email, but the pair is placed on the website as well on the day it is sent. In a way, it reminds me of Placing, but it’s less linear and less overtly making a particular statement.
Beyond the work itself, I was really happy to see a project (and a gallery) like that originating in Ottawa. The city isn’t known as a hub of the arts, but it has a long tradition of very grassroots, almost activist, arts work centered around facilities like the SAW Gallery and others. The web and the internet more broadly seems like a perfect extension of that.
They’re shutting down
the UUCP!mapping!project! – Wired News has the story: Oh, When Email Was New
If anyone can tell me
why, in Win IE, the image of the guy doesn’t load flush with the right hand edge of the cell I’d really appreciate it. It works exactly as I intend it to using 3 Mac browsers, all of which use completely different rendering engines. [email me]
