Graffiti Analysis

Graffiti Analysis

IP to ASN Mapping - Team Cymru - Vimperator The whois daemon acts like a standard whois server would, but with some added functionality. It accepts arguments on the command-line for single whois queries, and it also supports BULK IP submissions when combined with GNU's netcat for those who wish to optimize their queries. When issuing requests for two or more IPs we strongly suggest you use netcat for BULK IP submissions, or DNS since there is less overhead. As a measure of speed, queries of approximately 100,000 IPs should return in less than a minute given a moderately sized Internet link. WARNING: IPs that are seen abusing the whois server with large numbers of individual queries instead of using the bulk netcat interface will be null routed. If at all possible you should consider using the DNS based query interface since it is much more efficient for individual queries.

Ghost Billboard Erected on U.S.-Canada Border By Duncan Geere, Wired UK A U.S. art studio called Lead Pencil Studio has created a sculpture on the border between the United States and Canada that consists of a blank space in the shape of a billboard, surrounded by tangled metal. Titled Non-Sign II, the piece was commissioned by the U.S. government. The artists behind it are Annie Han and Daniel Mihalyo, who’ve won numerous awards for their work over the last decade. The pair carefully twisted metal to give the appearance of a ghost of one of the billboards that populate the area. Han and Mihalyo told The Stranger that they hope the sculpture will add a bit of awareness to the signage landscape in the border zone, as it flies past the inhabitants of passing cars.

When I started my artist residency at MakerBot, I knew I had to combine 3d scanning and 3d printing. One of the first ideas we had was to set up a 3d photo booth at MakerBot to scan visitors. So I wrote an app called KinectToStl which first launched at the MakerBot NY user group.

10 badass social media visualisations When it comes to social media you might be busy trying to separate the opportunity from the bullshit, such are the interstellar levels of hype and associated jargon that are plaguing this space. Nevertheless, I for one believe that a solid social media strategy can make a real difference to your business, helping you to drive engagement in order to boost customer satisfaction, retention, and profits. But that's not to say it will be easy: there's a lot to figure out and each company has different needs (and challenges to overcome). They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I thought I'd aggregate a few of the social media visualisations I've spotted in the past few weeks to help you make some mental leaps of faith, or use in your internal pitches, or otherwise determine that it's all a bunch of hot air, as you see fit. Caveat: some of these are more badass than others!

In Pictures: Egyptian Street Art The creativity of the Egyptian revolution – often marked by a sort of national humor, viewed by many Arabs as a local specialty – has made the city its theater, with Tahrir Square the centre stage. The activists have taken over the urban space, in the truest meaning of the term, writing their slogans and pictures on the walls of public places. It’s a battle field, with activist artists organizing themselves into commando units, generally working at night, to install their creations in strategically selected locations. (They choose) places that are particularly popular, but also places that delineate the boundaries of the area that’s “under the control” of the insurgency. Security forces decide whether or not to turn a blind eye, depending on the situation. The beginning of the first wave of mobilisation in January 2011 was marked by a piece of work by the artist Ganzeer that payed tribute to Islam Raafat, one of the first victims of the revolution.
