Before I Die What matters most to you Interactive public art project that invites people to share their personal aspirations in public.

The Before I Die book is a celebration of these walls and the stories behind them. 2011, New Orleans, LA. Cordoba, Argentina. Najaf, Iraq. Brooklyn, NY.

Monte y culebra, o muerte Cambia radicalmente la visión de eso que llamamos “panorama político” cuando salimos de Caracas, y en general de toda la Venezuela urbanizada y seudocosmopolita. Esta reflexión amerita pies de plomo y avisos de señalización en cantidad, porque sus líneas rectoras se emparentan peligrosamente con una vieja idea de la “clase pensante” (ustedes saben, esa parranda de universitarios y sus afines y derivaciones: sifrinos, sifrinoides, lechuguinos, protoaristócratas y demás güevones que se creen destinados por la providencia a dirigir al país y al mundo, porque dizque estudiaron y se quemaron las pestañas, como si los pobres no nos hubiéramos quemado todo el cuerpo, pestañas incluidas): la idea fatua, ridícula y vomitiva según la cual en Caracas, Carabobo y el Zulia el chavismo perdió porque la gente de las ciudades es más inteligente, estudiada y por lo tanto superior. Y ya. Paro un momento en Caracas y seguimos de gira, agitando por el Sí.

The Spy files WikiLeaks: The Spy Files Mass interception of entire populations is not only a reality, it is a secret new industry spanning 25 countries It sounds like something out of Hollywood, but as of today, mass interception systems, built by Western intelligence contractors, including for ’political opponents’ are a reality. Today WikiLeaks began releasing a database of hundreds of documents from as many as 160 intelligence contractors in the mass surveillance industry. International surveillance companies are based in the more technologically sophisticated countries, and they sell their technology on to every country of the world. But the WikiLeaks Spy Files are more than just about ’good Western countries’ exporting to ’bad developing world countries’. Selling Surveillance to Dictators Trovicor, previously a subsidiary of Nokia Siemens Networks, supplied the Bahraini government with interception technologies that tracked human rights activist Abdul Ghani Al Khanjar.

ESP8266 WiFi Throwies A few years ago, someone figured out you can take an LED, a coin cell battery, and a magnet, tape them together, and throw them on every conceivable metallic surface. This was the creation of LED throwies, and the world was much worse off for its invention. With the ESP-8266 WiFi module, we have a tiny, tiny device with a WiFi radio, and just enough processing power to do something interesting. What does that mean? WiFi throwies. [Andreas Reischle] stuffed an ESP-8266 WiFi module and a lithium cell inside a weatherproof controller loaded up with magnets. The software is based on the NodeMCU firmware and features a web server and a DNS server. It’s much better than polluting the world with LEDs and lithium; this one has Hunt the Wumpus on it. Thanks [Oliver] for the tip.
