‘How Facebook VR Could Introduce Next Generation Of Surveillance’

“in VR, much more than on your smartphone, both a person’s physical body movements and emotional reactions become far more accessible as data”


Also featuring quotes from @aral.

Rather chuffed about wallabag.org/ , looks like I finally can merge & have some decent control over my (now rather large) instapaper & pocket archives.

This is a photo of a crashed kiosk advertising the menu and offers at a popular Norwegian pizza restaurant chain. It shows that the kiosk was running facial recognition and basic sentiment analysis on the people looking at it.

Based on the number of people who sent me this on Twitter, it’s clear that people care and are unhappy with corporate surveillance.

The worst bit? Compared to what Google and Facebook do daily and at scale, this is a toy.


Alpha version of Nulis is online! I'm so happy =)


Nulis is a tree editor for writers, making the process of outlining your stories, articles, and books easy and convenient.

Come check it out! I would really love to hear what you think about it.

(For now Nulis works best in Chrome, and there's no mobile version yet.)

The first 100 early adopters who will test it and send me some feedback or bug reports will receive free lifetime accounts!

Is really the best option for rendering on ? I'm hearing positive things about ... (paying for a good render engine doesn't faze me the slightest, so the crucial bit is quality/speed and interoperability with blender)

btw, anyone heard anything new about ? I'm very inclined to want to support it, but not quite sure how/if it can fit into current sort of setup (vive).

Hm. got to get my hands on a vive tracker or two.. just too many project ideas right now..


Imagine all digital devices being homes, havens, symbiotic interfaces with other life-forms. Swapping temperature, by-products and changes in location. Negotiations of life that are both personal and networked.

The GODDOGs are bothering us again.

I'm loving , however, I wish I could make lighting/world presets so that temporary forking between VR & Offline rendering wouldn't be so many extra clicks (not to mention project duplication etc.).

Alright. This week will be learning week.

Got the first rough prototype for a future installation of NATURE'S RUIN up and running last night. Not a bad start.

As an architect I often idly speculate about what would happen architecturally if my profession were granted access to the computer vision generated spatial metadata that , & their ilk surely as reaping from the western world.

The thought is revoltingly beguiling.

Seams are never quite as substantial as they seem. Whilst the fabric may wear & fray and ultimately tear, there is nothing as immediate as the seam. Already from the birth of a garment there are hints of loose threads, which if pulled seemingly break off harmlessly. yet the damage is done, even when we remove these stray traces … they hint at what remain: patient fractures-in-waiting.
