when and where are we meeting today???
Hi, we are trying to finalize the tag shortlist. We have altered some tags for appropriateness. Please check over the list and register your concerns in the comments by 6 pm, because I need to draw up the final list. Thanks and see you all tomorrow.
Some tag free-association and near-binaries to fill in any gaps should they arise:
lost / found* / missing
direction* / destination
signal / marker
flow* / float
barrier / connection
communication / reception / response
monument* / landmark
utility / purpose
observer / observed
lack / excess
sanctuary / chaos
visitor / local*
Could the lighthouse, with a little context, not be tagged by any of these?
when, where, and what time should we meet???
What if we meet before we shoot on Sunday in the morning sometime? Then we can look at some platforms and finalize our tags?
We’re still struggling with developing a suitable interface for our new media project. Alex Bal recommended a service called Yahoo Pipes that allows you to manipulate/filter/visualize streams of data such as RSS feeds from Flickr. It is possible to embed the pipes’ output into blogs such as wordpress and blogger. But as of yet, I don’t think Pipes allow you to randomize the data; if this is indeed the case, I still think Pictobrowser is more aesthetically flexible and elegant.
I have experimented with both platforms here (this is just a sandbox for developing forms – the content is just dummy text and images): mfataghunt.blogspot.com
We need to reach a consensus on this interface issue, and on the tags as well (see post below). I plan on being at school sometime tomorrow, in case people are available.
Noise, Round, and Closer?
