Bookcubes: Souvenirs of Digital Reading I was recently asked by the good people at Proboscis to undertake a virtual residency, exploring their Bookleteer suite of tools. Bookleteer is described as “a platform for public authoring and cultures of listening—creating and sharing knowledge, stories, ideas and information”, and also as a form of samizdat for the twentieth century. I’ll be further exploring the Bookleteer API in a future post. The code for the experiments can be found on the Bookleteer blog. One of the subjects that came up in my thinking for SXSW, and which I mentioned briefly, was the question of souvenirs. I said then that I don’t think digital does souvenirs—I can’t think of examples of what I consider to be real souvenirs which are not discrete and tangible. These records—souvenirs—are important because they serve as touchstones, aides memoires, and visual quantifiers. Russell Davies has written about “the way we use these little objects to say stuff about ourselves. [Photo by jørngeorg on Flickr]
Control a drone with SmartEyeglass and SmartWatch 2 [tutorial] | Sony Developer World Sony’s wearables offers an array of creative possibilities, and Sony engineers Peter Bartos, Jonas Hellström and Alexander Najafi decided to take this to the next level with their drone project. Starting as a spare time project, they created an Android app that uses the SmartEyeglass prototype and SmartWatch 2 as control devices for a flying drone. Learn all about it in this tutorial. Sony Software Engineers Peter Bartos, Alexander Najafi and Jonas Hellström. Peter Bartos, Jonas Hellström and Alexander Najafi are software engineers at Sony, and they started to work on this demo project in their spare time as a way to explore the possibilities of how the SmartEyeglass prototype and SmartWatch 2 could work together in a creative way. As it happened, some cool drones were lying around in the office, and then the idea about a control app came up. About this project The flying drone used is a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0. When is this useful? Now your project should contain both samples.

What a Shaman Sees in A Mental Hospital By: Stephanie Marohn with Malidoma Patrice Somé The Shamanic View of Mental Illness In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born. What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. One of the things Dr. “I was so shocked. Another way to say this, which may make more sense to the Western mind, is that we in the West are not trained in how to deal or even taught to acknowledge the existence of psychic phenomena, the spiritual world. On the mental ward, Dr Somé saw a lot of “beings” hanging around the patients, “entities” that are invisible to most people but that shamans and psychics are able to see.
