Pandora Flickeur - Every Picture Tells a Story Flickeur (pronounced like Voyeur) randomly retrieves images from and creates an infinite film with a style that can vary between stream-of-consciousness, documentary or video clip. All the blends, motions, zooms or timeleaps are completely random. Flickeur works like a looped magnetic tape where incoming images will merge with older materials and be influenced by the older recordings' magnetic memory. The virtual tape will also play and record forward and backward to create another layer of randomness. This principle will create its own sometimes very suggestive or scary story. Due to the open nature of Flickr I cannot guarantee what kind of images will be displayed, so there is a slight possibility that some images might be offending or show nudity. Flickeur is part of the NET.ART section at Art Tech Media 06 which can be seen in various museums across Spain in 2006. Flickeur by Mario Klingemann

6 Clever Tricks for Social Media Managers Even if you're the ultimate hybrid project manager/content creator and community-engager, reality is, you'll probably develop Community Manager Multi-Personality Disorder (CMMPD)* at least once in your career. *We totally made this up. In my years managing communities for companies ranging from teeny startups to global soda and makeup brands, I learned one thing very quickly: Establishing systems and using the right tools early on can save your sanity (and your laptop’s RAM). Here are six tips and tricks in my medicine cabinet for achieving social media vitality. 1. Pain: So many accounts, so few browsers, so slow Internet speed. Every day, we log in to our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr accounts, our work email, Google Drive and our internal communities, not to mention those of all our clients. Remedy: Behold, Chrome profiles. 2. Remedy: Download FoundApp. 3. Remedy: With IFTTT (If This Then That), you can literally put the Internet to work for you. 4. 5. 6.

7 Alternatives to Pandora and Last.FM | Mystery Tricycle - StumbleUpon Whether you are annoyed by the ads on Pandora, the limited number of skips, or the abyss of cruel 30-second song teasers from Last.FM, many online listeners are growing weary of mainstream methods of hearing new music. While the Pandora algorithm is strong, and the Last.FM related artists tool is pretty useful, don’t fool yourself in to thinking that there aren’t other great ways to expose yourself to new music in the depths of cyberspace. Here are 7 alternatives to Pandora and Last.FM that will infuse your day with an uninterrupted stream of music that large record companies haven’t managed to squash under their thumbs yet. StumbleAudio StumbleAudio has a killer recommendation engine that works better for me than Pandora’s. Songza Songza uses a recommendation engine that runs for each ‘channel’, but unlike Pandora, channels are not tied to specific listeners and rather are community property.

Conversion Chronicles - How To Play With People's Minds To Get Them To Do Things Against Their Will (well Ok not really!) I'm about to show you some alarmingly powerful psychological techniques that persuade people to do things... Even if they don't know how or why they're being persuaded to do them. But before you get the wrong idea... Most of what you'll see in today's issue comes from a source I've mentioned to you many times before: Dr. Cialdini is neither copywriter nor marketer. He has a graduate degree from Columbia. "I can admit it fre ely now," says Cialdini in the book's forward, "All my life I've been a patsy." He wrote the book, he says, because it occurred to him that he, himself, had been persuaded over and over again to do and buy things he didn't want or need. He wanted to figure out how it had happened. A noble cause. Our cause, I believe, is equally noble. We're not REALLY out to use what Cialdini found to persuade people to do things they don't want to do. And by good, I simply mean what I think the true purpose of advertising should be: Why? You know this one already.
