The Zero Dollar Laptop Project

Furtherfield needs your old laptops for work with homeless people in London… >The Zero Dollar Laptop Project:

In January 2010 The Zero Dollar Laptop Project kicks off with clients of St Mungo’s charity for homeless people in London. We will be recycling hardware, breaking Windows and installing Free and Open Source Software to build media laptops and create music, graphics and video for distribution over the Internet. Participants will leave the project with street-smart technical knowledge and a wireless enabled media laptop, classier than any shiny power-book.

The Zero Dollar Laptop is a recycled computer, running Free Open Source Software (FOSS) that is fast and effective — now and long into the future. Do you have an old, unused laptop taking up space in your home or office? Would you like to see it returned to productive life? If YES, then please donate your old laptop. Continue reading

Treefingers: Plant, Water, Weed Thoughts

Treefingers is a social web experiment that allows anybody to “plant” a thought anonymously — and vote on the thoughts of others in an interesting manner. Bad plants get weeded out and good ones are watered, creating an abstract forest with thoughts of varying colors.

Using Treefingers is easy: simply click the “water” button on thoughts you like, and the “weed” button on thoughts you don’t. You can submit your own thought to the site by clicking “Plant a Thought” in the upper-right corner. Treefingers requires no registration and is completely anonymous. Your thought will appear instantly on the site for other visitors to water and weed!

Treefingers empowers advanced web technologies to provide a website that continuously updates. This means you can track the activities of other Treefingers users in real-time! Plants change colors before your eyes as people water and weed them, and new plants show up instantly. The result is a living, breathing website that is constantly changing! [via Christina Coleman]

Open Call for 101010 UpStage Festival

Live Stage: The Guide + Beyroutes [nl Amsterdam]

VOLUME Magazine #22: The Guide + Beyroutes Launch Event :: December 22, 2009; 5:00 – 7:00 pm :: Athenaeum News Centre, Spui, Amsterdam.

Guiding – as it is commonly understood – is not about creating; it’s about helping. The guide has no goal other than to lead someone safely to the destiny of their choice. The guide is skilled; he or she actually can lead the way, but does so without ambition beyond delivering quality service. The guide sells safety where risk is involved.

With The Guide, VOLUME presents a diverse collection of guides and attempts to guide. From strange maps, bike tours and magnetic navigation belts to the conception of Paris’ 13th arrondissement as a series of islands; here, the guide is understood as not simply a service or selling point, but as an exploratory tool, a generator for a proactive engagement with the city.

TREEHOUSE: A Found e-mail Romance for iPhone

TREEHOUSE: A Found e-mail Romance designed for the iPhone in four Appisodes™:

GET THE SCOOP (NY) – New media producers First Fifteen [F15] are releasing the provocative, true e-mails of a love affair carried out 14-years ago during the advent of the Internet (to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own phone). TREEHOUSE can be read as a linear or non-linear story with smart graphics and a recommended soundtrack, all wrapped up in an innovative and unique e-reader interface (while the stealth, 5th App has something intriguing to do with John Travolta, but we are not at liberty to say…).

First Fifteen [F15] is a specialty press and new media producer. Projects range from limited edition print to new dynamics in publishing using the iPhone and other compatible devices. Also see Joe Wachs’ Hybrid/.

Open_Sailing

In order to live at sea, we’re pioneering an entirely new form of marine architecture. Open_Sailing acts like a globally-conscious super-organism, a cluster of intelligent units that can react to their environment, change shape and reconfigure themselves. Open_Sailing is a project that is well underway. We are a constantly growing, international team of around 40 people designing and engineering a prototype under the mentoring of numerous experts. Where is the safest location on earth? How can we live at sea? How can we create a life saving floating self-righting architecture? How can we produce reliable renewable energy? What will we eat? What will the politico social organization be made of? How will we entertain ourselves? Continue reading
