Create Digital Music » Thought and Performance, Live Coding Music, Explained to Anyone – Really Algorithms are Thoughts, Chainsaws are Tools from Stephen Ramsay on Vimeo. In an extended video that begins with Radio City’s Rockettes and kettle drum players, Stephen Ramsay explains a litany of technology’s most elusive topics, in terms anyone could understand — no, really. I dare you to ask anyone to watch a few clips of this video, regardless of whether they’re regular readers of this site.

Ross Lovegrove Self-Promo Likes (and Pet Peeves)… From the People You’re Sending Them To (Part 1 of 3) Posted: December 12, 2010 Just to drive everyone nuts, I've been talking to photo editors and creative directors about what sort of promos they like enough to keep. As you hopefully know, most of the print promos they receive go straight into the recycling bin (and most e-promos aren't opened). What makes a promo stand out enough to get pinned up on the wall of chosen ones?

Aux origines de l'interface des Windows Phone 7 Creative Director chez Microsoft, Mike Kruzeniski détaille sur son blog les origines de Metro, l'interface originale des Windows Phone 7. Dans un billet intitulé "Des Transports jusqu'aux pixels“ il raconte que l'équipe de design des Windows Phone appuya sur le bouton reset lorsqu'elle se rendit compte il y a deux ans que les choix retenus pour Windows Mobile n'étaient plus tenables. Ils sont alors inspirés de ce qu'ils considéraient comme des exemples réussis en design, des réalisations de Josef Müller-Brockmann, Massimo Vignelli ou Experimental Jetset, avec à leur compte des choses comme la signalétique du métro New Yorkais ou la marque American Airlines. L'interface du Zune, de la Xbox et du Windows Media Center avaient bénéficié des mêmes influences.

Or at least that seems to be the lesson of a new study which found that sensitive personal information, such as PIN numbers and credit card data, can be gleaned from the brainwave data of users wearing popular consumer-grade EEG headsets. A team of security researchers from Oxford, UC Berkeley, and the University of Geneva say that they were able to deduce digits of PIN numbers, birth months, areas of residence and other personal information by presenting 30 headset-wearing subjects with images of ATM machines, debit cards, maps, people, and random numbers in a series of experiments. The paper, titled “On the Feasibility of Side-Channel Attacks with Brain Computer Interfaces,” represents the first major attempt to uncover potential security risks in the use of the headsets.

Ancient Sanskrit Online: Lesson 10 The world of the poets of the Rigveda was governed by laws of Newtonian orderliness, represented by a group of abstract nouns of complex meaning. One of these, vratá 'holy law, divine commandment', was described in the introduction to Lesson 7. Of similar complexity are dhā́man 'foundation, just law, precept', related to Greek θέμις and English doom, and dhárman 'support, fixed order', both of which are found in the Lesson 10 text, together with r̥tá (see below), a word which is repeated in the last two verses, joining them together into one grammatical sentence. Reading and Textual Analysis The lesson text is verses 10-20 of an Archaic poem, VIII, 27 (647) which, like the Lesson 4 text, is in the alternating lyric br̥hatī/satobr̥hatī metre.
