On the intersection of technology, culture, and everyday life: My semi-updated space to collect and link my thoughts about interesting things I spot.
Appreciated the sentiment Zach Lieberman started with this Dorkbot evening — the gist, 'DYI is popular, but I want to DIWO.' While his openframeworks (cross platform c++ library for creative coding) will hopefully enable more DYI, his projects seem to have a DIWO slant (most recently Lights On!, a NYE performance of music and building lights that married the technical talents of collaborators).
Perhaps an accidental theme, the second speaker (creator of playful technology embedded fashion) also seemed to be moving from pieces that revolve around individual human behavior to pieces that explore and stimulate group interactions. Some of the dresses were actually quite cute, but likely not hitting the mass market anytime soon.
