Narrowbanding (3/17/08)

Using (or understanding) technology at a superficial yet still useful level.


ArtBarCamp (3/16/08)

A standalone event or co-located at BarCamps or SciBarCamps, ArtBarCamp would have an emphasis on doing art in workshop formats, experiencing different kinds of art and talking about art. TED and SciBarCamp include artists and the audience has an opportunity to experience art, but not create it. In an increasingly 3d data work, it is necessary for everyone to develop and use visual display skills, an integration of art and design (shaping and making our environment in ways without precedent in nature to serve our needs and give meaning to our lives).

First Flickr

Flickr ADD: Attention Distribution Dichotomy

Conflicts in distributing one's attention between being present to a physical world event and getting it recorded and uploaded to Flickr.

Over-flickring or Flickr Surfeit

The additional Flickr photos that only replicate information on previous photos of the same dog, event, place, etc. after the Great Asymptote of Usefulness has been reached.

Repli-trash – MMMIs  (mmmmmmeS!)

Massively multiple media instances

The duplication of audio and video media files all over the net; a movie clip uploaded to ten video sites, an audio file uploaded to ten podcast sites, etc. Free storage has led to ineffective usage - some high percentage of all content must be duplicates.

Web Trash (Tr4sh)

The great unwashed, untagged, un-meta'd information out on the web; text, audio, video, etc. that is dead even to the user; orphaned personal and corporate intranet pages and other data that is invisible to higher levels of indexing, identification, organization and use.

Authenticity Charlatanism Grabbing a URL, group name, tag, or other web content category without having the traditional world authenticity to do so, e.g.; the Prosper Harvard and Wharton MBA Lending Groups are brand leeching; they have nothing to do with real Harvard and Wharton MBAs.


Validation to watch UGC (user-generated content) videos by dint of employment at a UGC video site.
