Based on this ideia:

"...Artists on Their Bicycles New York establishes a new connection between artists and mobility, portraying them with their eco-friendly vehicles. ... vibrant everyday scenes. Some artists navigate the Manhattan grid as urban flaneurs, while others take advantage of biking as an effective means of transportation. This limited edition project harnesses the artistic will to operate outside the lanes of constraint."

Subject: para artistas & bikers de plantão!

galera,

eu nao recebi [nem recebo] nada monetario p/ esta divulgação, mas acho q mtos nesta lista se interessariam pelo produto [ou ao menos por esta ideia] de 45 dolares & contato >> Calendar Artists on Their Bicycles New York 2010

Sao Paulo nao eh mto uma cidade tipica de bikers ["plana como santos"], mas fico mto feliz de poder cada vez mais cumprimentar -- pós 20 anos de pedaladas aqui por Sampa -- outros ciclistas tbm cotidianos pelas ruas e caminhos deste urbanismo caótico em que vivemos atualmente.

[]s e uma otima virada p/ 2010 a tds!

The Nine Eyes of Google Street View [¿Surveillance or Spectacle?]

Two years ago, Google sent out an army of hybrid electric automobiles, each one bearing nine cameras on a single pole. Armed with a GPS and three laser range scanners, this fleet of cars began an endless quest to photograph every highway and byway in the free world.

Picture 25

Consistent with the company’s mission “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful,” this enormous project, titled Google Street View, was created for the sole purpose of adding a new feature to Google Maps.

Every ten to twenty meters, the nine cameras automatically capture whatever moves through their frame. Computer software stitches the photos together to create panoramic images. To prevent identification of individuals and vehicles, faces and license plates are blurred.

Today, Google Maps provides access to 360° horizontal and 290° vertical panoramic views (from a height of about eight feet) of any street on which a Street View car has traveled. For the most part, those captured in Street View not only tolerate photographic monitoring, but even desire it. Rather than a distrusted invasion of privacy, online surveillance in general has gradually been made ‘friendly’ and transformed into an accepted spectacle. [cont.]

o copyrighted* Batman [2008], tal qual nosso recente Salve Geral [2009] e o participativo MANIFESTE-SE [todo mundo artista] – MOBILE WEBTV LIVE BROADCAST [2005-2008], discutem (dentro de suas causas primeiras/ hipóteses/ argumentos-bases) também a função estrutural da telefonia móvel [aquele brinquedinho chamado "celular" e de expansão da mobilidade comunicacional ao redor do mundo...]… Cada qual à sua maneira, apresentam - e discutem - jnt ao público uma mesma questão: tracking.

Dispositivo de Localização Geográfica.
Controle. Comunicação Rastreada.
O importante em uma sociedade disciplinar é exatamente esta possibilidade de controle total de tudo que se encontra em CIRCULAÇÃO, certo?…
uma espécie de DIGITAL DATA PANOPTICO, para além de uma rede Internet, um sistema móvel [mobile]

Mais do que isto, talvez.
Há também em comum, nesta cinematografia blockbuster internacional, uma discussão comportamental a la #Foucault [talvez até mesmo #Guatari e #Deleuze, entre tantos outros somente para citarmos aquela década de 70...],

vou me focar mais uma vez em Foucault neste post, já que estou retornando às pesquisas em voga no Brasil [e abroad] nesta virada de século e primeiros anos do século XXI.
...e quem diria q eu voltaria ao meu querido Batman de Nolan, Christopher [aquele msm britânico-diretor sobre Tesla e clones/ tecnologia, discussão em voga ao redor de 2006...] exatamente um ano depois para este novo post linkado a um filme brasileiro, hein?! ;)

[cacau's tip of the day by email-talk]:

“Isso não é um jogo, é algo dissuasivo. Quando as pessoas virem o sinal de que o Internet Eyes patrulha uma câmera, saberão que alguém estará assistindo”, disse à BBC Brasil o criador do site, Tony Morgan. “Atualmente, as pessoas ignoram as câmeras.”

Online Video and Participatory Culture

"YouTube is one of the most well-known and widely discussed sites of participatory media in the contemporary online environment, and it is the first genuinely mass-popular platform for user-created video. In this timely and comprehensive introduction to how YouTube is being used and why it matters, Burgess and Green discuss the ways that it relates to wider transformations in culture, society and the economy.

The book critically examines the public debates surrounding the site, demonstrating how it is central to struggles for authority and control in the new media environment. Drawing on a range of theoretical sources and empirical research, the authors discuss how YouTube is being used by the media industries, by audiences and amateur producers, and by particular communities of interest, and the ways in which these uses challenge existing ideas about cultural `production' and `consumption'.

Rich with both concrete examples and featuring specially commissioned chapters by Henry Jenkins and John Hartley, the book is essential reading for anyone interested in the contemporary and future implications of online media. It will be particularly valuable for students and scholars in media, communication and cultural studies."

About Us

Tactical Tech is an international NGO working at the point where advocacy meets technology. We use our technical expertise to increase the impact of campaigns in social justice and human rights.

Tactical Tech believes that new technologies have significant potential to enhance the work of campaigners and advocates, giving them the tools to gather and analyse information and the means to turn that information into action.

tactical techonology

To help make this possible, Tactical Tech has, over the past four years, trained nearly 1,000 advocates and technologists in developing and transition countries in the use of technology for social change, provided consultancy and mentoring to over ten NGO movements and networks and created a suite of toolkits and guides specifically for use by advocates.

Tactical Tech and its staff have an in-depth working knowledge of advocacy organisations and technologists working across a range of sectors and geographies. It has advised a wide range of organisations and movements, in the process developing a strong reputation for demystifying technologies and helping advocates and campaigners get the most from modern resources.

Tactical Tech was established in 2003 by a collective of professionals with extensive experience working with NGOs and new technologies. Together, they have developed the unique concept of bringing advocates and technologists together and working in many regions around the world to share expertise.
