discussed projects[edit]

Digital Storms[edit]

A while ago I bought the domainname, i figured it would be nice to do some sort of project related to info maps, and i think one of the first maps, might be one that blends economic data with blogs. "we feel fine" is a great project that blends art, with sensory computing, and allows the web to emote just a little bit about us.

voice stream[edit]

the idea here was to capture interesting data from a speech or conversation and somehow relate that to google searches and some sort of UI, either for art, fun, or profit.
