Facebook Demetricator – The Unquantified Self

The use of self-tracking apps and devices is now so widespread that it is easy to overlook how much our thinking about ‘personal analytics’ is rooted in social web services. Urbana-Champaign-based media artist Benjamin Grosser’s most recent project, Facebook Demetricator, is a multi-browser plugin that recontextualizes Facebook’s interface by stripping out all mentions of quantity.

Yung Jake gets played out because you

In his mile-a-minute guest spot on Rob Sonic’s most recent album Sabotage Gigante, Los Angeles-based Busdriver fires off a verbal salvo about powder burns on a disk drive and generating buzz across the blogosphere. While this kind of technobabble isn’t exactly the purview of most non-nerdcore MCs, broader discussions about the propagation of fame and channels […]

WebGL Tadpoles [Scripts]

Created by Kris Temmerman, aka Neuro Productions, WebGL Tadpoles is an experiment with 30 tadpoles relying on inverse kinematic chains and moving in a 3D using Perlin Noise vector field.

Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity [WebApp]

Created by Emmanuel Pire, Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity is a project that uses “web time noise” as a way of composition. The noise you will find is not coded with a random function but is actually the network response time and the browser’s imprecisions that create the asynchronicity. Browsers are smart enough to recognize that it is the […]

Most recent addition includes Sinuous, a simple game built using canvas which will test your mouse pointer reflexes by having you direct your cursor against incoming meteors. My other personal favourites include Blob, Magnetic, Particle Depth and Particles. […]

Canvas was initially introduced by Apple for use inside their own Mac OS X WebKit component, later adopted by Gecko browsers and standardized for the next generation web technologies. It consists […]
