Facebook Would Pay $40 Million For Falsely Inflating Video Metrics

The suit accused Facebook of acknowledging miscalculations in metrics upon press reports, but still not taking responsibility for the breadth of the problem. “The average viewership metrics were not inflated by only 60%-80%; they were inflated by some 150 to 900%,” stated an amended complaint. – The Hollywood Reporter

Talking Heads Songs Become Midcentury Pulp Novels, Magazines & Advertisements: “Burning Down the House,” “Once in a Lifetime,” and More

Do you like Talking Heads? Writer and visual artist Douglas Coupland once proposed that question as the truest test of whether you belong to the cohort named by his novel Generation X. Coupland's contemporary colleague in letters Jonathan Lethem summed up his own early Talking Heads mania thus: "At the peak, in 1980 or 1981, my identification was so complete that I might have wished to wear the album Fear of Music in place of my head so as to be more clearly seen by those around me." What makes...

Addicted To Your Screens? It’s Your Own Fault!

“We talk about addiction, but when it comes to Candy Crush, really? Facebook? We’re not freebasing Facebook. We’re not injecting Instagram here,” Mr. Eyal said one morning over croissants at New York’s Bryant Park. “These are things we can do something about, but we love to think the technology is doing it to us.” – The New York Times

The Secret To A Life Well-Lived

If you’re tired of other people’s “Month of Gratitude” posts on Facebook, sorry to tell you this, but that’s the secret – gratitude. Wildly, if you want to save for retirement or something, gratitude is also the way to go: “We’ve repeatedly been able to show the close link between gratitude and self-control. In 2014, we demonstrated that people induced to feel grateful, compared with those induced to feel happiness or no emotion at all, became much more willing to wait for a larger financial re...

Are You Sitting Down?

If you’re not sitting down, you might want to do that now. I’ve decided to start posting to my blog again, at least on an experimental basis. For the past year almost, I’ve entertained the thought that art blogs may be a thing of the past. After all, there’s Facebook and Instagram now, and people have acquired new habits of connecting. But this medium has called to me again, because when I want to find content from my artist friends, I still want to read their blogs. So why not provide that same...

Not inspired right now.  No enthusiasm for painting so... Just opened up my sketchbook (thin paper so have to be light with the pigments and water) and came up with a couple of sketches that might become paintings later - or they might just remain as is.   Burn 8 x 11 sketch Sometimes it's hard to keep going when there's no road to follow - but, I know, that is what makes it fun (when it's fun).   Run 8 x 11 sketch Need to stay off the news and Facebook - both are de...

Has the world (or time) gone to the dogs?

There are things in life that never change regardless of modern societal trends. Especially when I’m referring to the human senses. Walking in the forest during the peak of the Autumn season or the fragrance of the food from the local market. The simple pleasures of life still hold value because it is part of our most important currency, which is time. What to do with your time is entirely up to you. We all get 24 hours a day to choose how to fill our lives up. Would we appreciate our ...

Listening Clubs Bring Audiences Of NPR’s Spanish-Language Podcast Together In Real Life

Radio Ambulante has a Facebook group with thousands of members in more than 19 countries. Editors there decided, “Let’s go back to the first place and do this but offline. We don’t want to have Facebook in between you and other listeners.” So they’ve organized listening clubs (the podcast equivalent of book clubs) for people to meet in person, listen to Radio Ambulante, and discuss what they’ve heard. – Nieman Lab

How to Get Clients: 15 Ways to Help Clients Find & Hire You

In a perfect world, we would never run out of clients and we would never have to go looking for work. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world and for many of us, prospecting clients is part of the job, even when we would rather be working on projects professional or personal in nature. What if we told you that you could have potential clients fill up your inbox or call you to work with you? If you’re not asking, “Yes, how can I do that?” Then thank you for your time. For everyon...

The Loudest One is Ours

We close our St. Louis production of Be More Chill just as the Broadway production has posted its closing notice for a little over a month from now. It's another reminder, as if we needed one, that this miraculous thing we create, this piece of deeply felt art that we all pour ourselves into, exists only for a while and then it's gone.I often hear people say that's why theatre is so special. Call me a cynic, but I look forward to the day when we have real-life holodecks and we can literally rel...

Andy Warhol Demystified: Four Videos Explain His Groundbreaking Art and Its Cultural Impact

We all have a few images to associate with Andy Warhol — Campbell's soup cans, colorized Marilyns and duplicated Elvises, that wig — and also a few words, usually something to the effect of everyone in the future being famous for fifteen minutes. Now that we seem nearly to have arrived in that future, we might well wonder what else Warhol understood about our world. But we can't know that until we have a clearer sense of just what he was up to, and these four short primers offer a solid ...

The Shifting Dynamics of Boys and Girls’ Decision to Share their Creative Programming Projects

Informal online learning communities are one of the most exciting and successful ways to engage young people in technology. As the most successful example of the approach, over 40 million children from around the world have created accounts on the Scratch online community where they learn to code by creating interactive art, games, and stories. However, despite its enormous reach and its focus on inclusiveness, participation in Scratch is not as broad as one would hope. For example, reflecting a...

Before The Kremlin Could Stop It, Rap Spread All Over Russia

It was the Web, and especially V Kontakte (Russia’s Facebook), that made it possible, and, as always in such cases, the old fogeys in charge didn’t catch on until it was too late to stop or co-opt it. So now the Kremlin is nervous. – The New York Times

Banksy Strikes Again in Venice

Juxtapoz writes: "Never invited to be the part of Venice Biennale, Banksy once again invited himself to showcase his work. Using a typical pop-up stand that usually sells tacky paintings and souvenirs, he assembled a selection of 9 works that collectively built an image of a massive cruise ship blocking the city." In recent years, the flood of massive cruise ships into Venice has created tensions between Venetians and tourism companies. It's pretty clear on what side the street artist co...

The Bauhaus Bookshelf: Download Original Bauhaus Books, Journals, Manifestos & Ads That Still Inspire Designers Worldwide

The Bauhaus, Barry Bergdoll writes in the New York Times of the German design school founded a century ago last month, "lasted just 14 years before the Nazis shut it down. And yet in that time it proved a magnet for much that was new and experimental in art, design and architecture — and for decades after, its legacy played an outsize role in changing the physical appearance of the daily world, in everything from book design to household lighting to lightweight furniture." Celebrations of the B...

Revolutionize VR! Oculus is looking to hire an Industrial Designer

VR existed before Oculus, but Oculus put VR on the map and in homes. When the company first announced its product, the first Rift, it made waves with how much it promised. Two screens in front of each eye, 360° tracking so you can look around, with absolutely zero latency between both screens. A seamless experience that up until then, seemed unbelievable. The company raised $2.5 million on Kickstarter, and was finally acquired by Facebook, which propelled Oculus to newer heights. Oculus has rece...

Cincinnati Ballet Runs Classes For Children With Range Of (Dis)Abilities

“Ballet Moves began in 2014 when the father of a young girl with Down syndrome asked if any of the classes suited her needs. The answer was no. But Julie Sunderland, who trained with Boston Ballet’s adaptive dance program before coming to the Cincinnati Ballet 11 years ago, said she would start one. … Two years later, the class expanded to children with other disabilities after Sunderland saw a Facebook post about a man with cerebral palsy who used dance to create new neurological pathways and ...

The Internet Is Fragmenting And Information Is Being Balkanized. Here’s How
