Reiff and Morawe are not the only ones to flirt with the idea of electric shock controllers and joysticks as a means of introducing greater realism into computer gaming.

Never to return, nice to read the old dry humour every now and then…
The institute does all kindsa crazy things from giving stilting workshop, holding condiment wars in DUMBO (which was insane) to who knows what else..
News and articles concerning just about everything I care about.. Hard to imagine the world without Wired.
TV is dead – this is LinuxTV
Only the access to the source code of our future television sets will guarantee the independence of content and technology. This website is a platform for the development of open source software for digital television (DVB, DTV) receivers, Linux DVD players and tools to stream audio and video to the net.
Hey let’s make everything work through the TV, talk about lazy..
From the article:
“I don’t even have to get up from my chair,” said Mr. Kruger, a retiree who lives in Phoenix. “I can see who’s calling, and if it’s not someone I want to talk to, I’ll ignore the phone.”

MANIFESTO :: Our Artistic Mission
Location One: Catalyst for Content and Convergence
This is our credo:
1. First, the Internet will be about content,
not just serve as a conduit for it. The nature of the technology changes content%u2014not just access and distribution%u2014with implications across the full range of artistic expression and subject matter.
2. Second, Location One is about convergence.
We are bringing together creativity along the two standards that have governed the history of human expression: the axis of expressive discipline and the axis of available technology.
3. Third, Location One is a catalyst.
We select talent, stimulate interaction, supply resources, and provide real and virtual forums. We enable things both cool and consequential to happen. New media transform artistic expression. Conventional barriers of time and distance are erased. With them depart a myriad of social, political and cultural distinctions. Access, distribution, participation become universal (and affordable).
4. Creative alternatives proliferate.
