Loop the Loop Loop the Loop Technology A brief history of the GIF tantek / TrollTaxonomy Recently (research and documentation begun in 2007) I have had sufficient experience with a variety of different types of trolls on the internet (in communities, email lists, wikis, and news stories) that it seemed useful to document, categorize, classify, and provide methods for dealing with each type, towards the goal of identifying and defeating trolls as quickly as possible in the interest of creating and maintaining PositiveCommunities. I have not found any good up to date, thorough, troll taxonomies on the web (though I remember reading somewhere about a taxonomy of trolls on Slashdot but have not been able to find that taxonomy again - if others can find it, please add it to the "Previous research and documentation" section), thus I've created this page to classify the trolls I have seen and experienced. WARNING: This page contains documentation about unpleasant behaviors on the internet.

Mr. Div And His Fantastical Geometric GIFs [Gallery] Matthew DiVito, known on tumblr as Mr. Div, is a motion graphics designer whose experiments with making super short animations in Cinema 4D led him to that format of formats, the future (and, oddly, the past) of film, video, and photography—the almighty GIF. What started off just for kicks turned into a little bit of a tumblr phenomenon, encouraging Div to create a couple of new ones a week. Now there are tons of ‘em, and we’re pretty certain they’re getting better and better. Check out some of our favorites below.

GIF-Industrial Complex: An Inside Look One weekend afternoon in September, Mike Konczal sat down at his computer to research a blog post. Another miserable jobs report had restarted the debate about what, if anything, the Federal Reserve should do to help unemployed Americans find a job. Konczal, a Roosevelt Institute think tanker specializing in economics, wanted to write about it. But he knew he couldn’t do it the way the rest of the media had, a stultifying mix of acronyms and technical terms. “Even the people who wanted to learn about it could just not learn that way,” Konczal told me. The most important news is almost always the most arcane.

Don't feed the trolls It's Alive! Banksy's Street Art Gets Animated We’ve seen Banksy’s famous graffiti come to life as real people re-enacted his scenes for photographer Nick Stern and now an artist by the name of ABVH has brought them to life in a different way.

What could be more entertaining than watching a mouse run on a wheel all day? If you’re on Tumblr, you can follow ABVH and get his newest animations right away.

Year of the Glitch yearoftheglitch: Hey, there! I’m teaching series of Glitch Art courses on Skillshare. Music Production, drugs to take advantage of? Some of the greatest most inventive electronic music was created and even performed on LSD. From 1965 to 1972, LSD had a greater influence (than any external force) on the music that is now considered classic. Electronic music from that era has yet to equaled and serves as the baseline for all of today's popular music.

Glitch, si no puedes repararlo, conviértelo en arte Publicado el 21 / 08 / 2012 Probablemente uno de los temas más controvertidos, luego de la política y la religión es “¿qué es y qué no es arte?” Y es que actualmente las formas de crear y transmitir información son tantas y tan variadas, que todos los conceptos que teníamos de arte o estética, finalmente se ven modificados o puestos en duda por la cultura moderna. ¿Recuerdan cuando de niños jugaban videojuegos, y de la nada la pantalla empezaba a revolverse con píxeles, figuras y colores que jamás pensaron que existieran?

File Sharing Using Google - Intitle:”index.of” Searches - Custom PC Blog Download MP3s, Movies, and More with Custom Google Searches Lately a lot of people have been asking me what programs I use to download movies, mp3s and anything else I am looking for online. It’s always fun to see the look on their faces when I tell them “Google”. The way I do this is by using specialized search commands that look for specific file types, and strip unwanted results out of your search. Because Google is such a powerful search engine it spiders many directories and parts of severs that people are not even aware of.

GLITCH: EL ERROR COMO ARTE EN EL MEDIO DIGITAL Glitch, por definición es un error o comportamiento inesperado en algún tipo de medio o contenido digital, ya sea software o hardware que por su naturaleza no afecta al funcionamiento normal de tal, y por lo tanto no se puede considerar bug. De esta manera, un glitch llega incluso a ser un acontecimiento anecdótico no intrusivo que se podría catalogar incluso de «característica adicional no esperada» como se hace referencia en la Wikipedia. Se ha creado una corriente paralela gracias a los glitch en el mundo de los videojuegos, en el que se explotan, graban y aprovechan para beneficio propio o por diversión este tipo de características «extra», pero en el caso que nos ocupa la cosa trasciende de ser una cosa anecdótica a ser el medio de la expresión artística más conceptual, el arte glitch.

Glitch Art Resources This is a collection of resources I find relevant to my own creative practice concerning Glitch Art. It’s by no means complete or exhaustive, and sadly, though I am trying to include as many relevant and important figures as possible, it will be impossible for me to include them all. I will do my best to continuously update reorganize and revise this list as time goes on.
