Get Ready for A Summer of Arts with The Space The BBC and Arts Council England have teamed up to launch a new service for mobile, tablet, PC and connected TV called The Space. The service is also available on digital television in the UK and is accessible via the BBC’s ‘Red Button‘ function for TV too. The experimental idea is aimed at allowing artists and cultural organisations to capture and distribute their own work on the platform. The initial idea was to create ‘a new era of public engagement in the arts’, and to build digital capacity and skills within the arts sector. Users can expect to see a wealth of newly accessible archive material from the Arts Council England, including film, images and further information. Though it has taken a long time to get to this stage, access to cultural works and archives on digital platforms is important. A packed agenda In May alone, the offerings are impressive. There will also be historic footage from the British Film Institute (BFI) National Archive and Arts Council Film Collection.

Fashion design edging closer to 3D With Fashion Weeks around the globe drumming up much fanfare it’s nice to take a step back from the glitz and glamour of those perched on the catwalk front row, and think about the designers. The industry is devoutly 2D - especially the haute couture of the most desirable labels, being more art than garment - so steps into designing through 3D tools has been a slow one. Last December Dassault Systèmes launched its Fashion Lab, and the engineering software company had previously been working tirelessly with mass consumer brands such as Under Armor in introducing 3D into apparel design. This year sees a more unlikely source of 3D design influence coming from the games industry, with Marvellous Designer 2. From what we can tell from the limited information that has accompanied its UK launch by resellers bluegfx, it is a straightforward games character dresser that can be used with most professional rendering programmes to give incredibly lifelike and detailed movement.

A beginner's guide to BitTorrent sob, demonoid is no private tracker. half the torrents are externally tracked from the likes of tpb. even then it's ridiculously slow. and if you think oink is impossible to get into, good luck with the other great and more elusive and unknown private trackers out there. I'm tempted to recommend inviteshare, but most of the best aren't even on there..and the ones that are..fat chance of getting an invite (particularly when your email address is out there in the open to the site admins too...). Also, pg2 is only as good as its blacklist, which is not good at all because it blocks IP addresses arbitrarily based on known blocks belonging to certain organizations and what have you. So essentially, peer guardian is a complete waste of resources for bittorrent. Lastly, the "official" bittorrent client is better known as mainline.
