First, no we didn’t send the mail. There are only about handful of registered owners of a donotreply.com email address. What normally happens is some spammer slugs it in, or more likely an IT person decides they don’t want to deal with bounced emails one of their programs send out, so what they do is set it to something cute at @donotreply.com as the return address. They think this solves the...

Seriously? How many ways can we invent to monitor each others’ lives before monitoring is all anyone does? Lately the interweb feels like a large, tightly packed crowd of people, motionless, all feverishly glancing around, waiting for someone to blink. Then when someone does, the twelve people near enough to see it start shouting “WE GOT A BLINKER! RIGHT HERE, BLINKED! SAW IT MYSELF! ...

Formula One television coverage in the UK will return next year to the BBC following 12 seasons with ITV, the Formula One Administration announced today.

Jim Lambie's Floor Installations →
Since 1999, the Glasgow-based artist Jim Lambie (1964) has used glossy tape in varying colors to build floor installations such as Touch Zobop (2003)… …Lambie’s works are site-specific and depend on existing gallery architecture. Therefore, Lambie’s work exists only as long as it is installed in art space: it cannot be reproduced in another space with a similar effect.

Streem is a new micro-blogging tool that would be likened more to Tumblr than Twitter, but even the distinctions between Streem and Tumblr are noteworthy. I read Streem’s about section and saw that the site’s creator, Imran Zaidi, is hoping to do five things with the site. One of those things is to flatten the playing field between bloggers and commenters, making comments more of an integral part...

Ironic Sans: Idea: The Bulbdial Clock →

And yet, we all would love to be able to tell the time by looking at shadows, right? That’s why I’ve come up with the Bulbdial Clock.
