eDonkey network The eDonkey Network (also known as the eDonkey2000 network or eD2k) is a decentralized, mostly server-based, peer-to-peer file sharing network best suited to share big files among users, and to provide long term availability of files. Like most sharing networks, it is decentralized, as there is not any central hub for the network; also, files are not stored on a central server but are exchanged directly between users based on the peer-to-peer principle. Currently, the eD2k network is not supported by any organization (in the past it was supported by the MetaMachine Corporation, its creator, which now is out of business) and development and maintenance is being fully provided by its community and client developers. There are many programs that act as the client part of the network. The original eD2k protocol has been extended by subsequent releases of both eserver and eMule programs, generally working together to decide what new features the eD2k protocol should support.

Lego will fix our broken bricks Two weeks ago, we took part to a workshop leaded by Jan Vormann, artist and creator of Dispatchwork, a nice, colored urban “hacking” practice which consists in filling holes in stone or brick-made wall with hundreds of lego bricks. It was a nice afternoon and we had the chance to talk a bit with the artist about this practice. He came to know very well the pieces he handles and can easily fix whatever kind of hole he finds with a fine, superior technique. It is interesting to notice (or maybe to remember) how much craftsmanship these small bricks need to be wisely combined, but it is even more to learn how to interface them with reality. Building worlds made entirely out of lego is a reminiscence of our childhood but using them to “fix” wall in a urban hacking practice sounds kind of more grown-up game, maybe closer to contemporary street art practices, but in a reversible way, since legos can in any moment be removed, dismantled and turn back to their original shape.

I turn on my computer, open a browser, and go to Google or Amazon or Yahoo. But what am I doing when I “visit” a website? Data Journalism Work Group What is the work group on data journalism? Schedule Registration for the work group What is the work group on data journalism? The idea of creating a work group on data journalism arose from a desire to promote this discipline in Spain, where it is unusual to find this practice applied to everyday news or research. The catalyst is the success of other data journalists’ groups in other countries.

Black hole glitch - Smashpedia, the Super Smash Bros. wiki. The black hole glitch is a glitch in Melee that causes several of Peach's turnips to become stuck in a small area. If a character touches the concentrated turnips, they will receive massive damage in seconds. The glitch was discovered by Aftermath and Juce in late 2004. There are several ways to perform the glitch. This glitch does not work in Brawl for several reasons, the main reason being the inability to perform the Infinite Super Scope Glitch.

From Trash Pile to Fully Functional: the Rough Lamp from Compeixalaigua Design Studio is Anything But Posted by erika rae | 18 Nov 2013 | Comments (2) Sometimes great designs come from leftover waste—look no further than Pothra planters, shipping pallet chairs and clothes hangers made of bike parts are three examples that prove it. We've got another design that's giving new life to old materials: Rough from Barcelona-based Compeixalaigua Design Studio is a clean update on the forgotten pile of wood strips it once was. The designers needed a way to light up their workspace and the perceived trash became a bright idea. The packing tape used to keep the sticks together became the inspiration behind the hanging strips that hold the light in place. The light's height can be adjusted using the hanging strips.

Ethnologisches Museum: Home As a product of European appropriation and colonisation of the world, ethnological museums in Europe traditionally reflected an attitude that set Europeans apart from the perceived 'exotic other'. The Ethnologisches Museum at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin critically investigates the legacy and ramifications of colonialism, as well as the role and standpoint of Europe. Partnerships with the 'source communities' in Africa, Asia, Oceania and America aim to open up the one-sided, Eurocentric approach and allow reflection on one’s own position without, however, refuting the European context. The Ethnologisches Museum is committed to the traditional tasks of a museum – collection, preservation, research and communication – but also builds on these by focussing on new aspects. In line with the Ethnologisches Museum’s education policy, the museum sees itself as a centre for life-long learning and believes that its exceptional collections can facilitate both cognitive and sensory experiences.
