Yesterday I was visiting the Turner Prize Retrospective In the Tate Britain. And they offered FREE BEER (version 3.2) :

This brings a whole new meaning to the words “open content” and “sharing”…cheers! ;-)

Web2.0 at Tate Modern

November 6th, 2007 by Martin

Yesterday I was at Tate Modern, where I could see some great works of Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein (thanks to him, I edited a Wikipedia entry for the first time!), Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys and many others. And I really liked this piece of “mashup art”:

The performance artist Andrea Fraser “created a scrambled remix of Tate Modern’s multimedia tours for the exhibition The World as a Stage“.

Maybe we’re all (more or less good) artists doing mashups and remixing stuff :-)

London calling

October 29th, 2007 by Martin

From tomorrow on, I’ll be in London for a month to work as a “visiting researcher” at the Knowledge Media Institute of the Open University UK! I’m looking very much forward to this trip, thanks again to Peter Scott and Elia Tomadaki for the invitation :-)

London Underground

I’m sure that it will be a great time - Elia and I have several ideas, amongst others we will try to use ALOE (by the way, ALOE has a blog now!) in several scenarios. There are lots of users and resources at OUUK, so this could be very exciting…

What we also plan to do is to work on approaches to connect formal metadata with data generated in “Web2.0 environments”…more about this in the following weeks, stay tuned!
