  • Smokescreen § Homepage – “How do we get teens to think about online privacy, trust, and identity? TV, films and books haven’t worked – but a game that simulates the internet, with a gripping drama and fast-paced missions definitely could”. “Smokescreen is a cutting-edge game about life online, on a new social network called White Smoke”. Newness from C4 and Six to Start that looks dead interesting
  • Soundwalk – “Cutting-edge audio guides in which the listener is able to step into the life of a narrator as they guide you through their neighborhood streets and local hang-outs. SoundTOURS mix fiction and reality in a cinematic experience giving the listener the impression of actually being in a film”
  • DNA/How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Internet – Douglas Adams on why being worried about the Internet is like being worried about cups of tea, our emergence from an interactivity drought and lots more besides in a surprisingly short article. All this from 1999, too
  • Dinner at El Bulli: The Greatest Restaurant in the World – The Amateur Gourmet – The best restaurant review I’ve ever read. It’s as if he’s taken his cue from the unexpected presentation of the dishes
  • Ars Electronica ’09: Quick Look on Visualization Projects – information aesthetics – “This post mainly focuses on the projects related to the fields of infographics and data visualization”
