Web Watch: Soul searching

Filed under

Soul searching: A creative intelligence is at work behind the scenes at This is an intriguing interactive site in which you enter a world of abstract animation and rhythmic electronica. It’s unpredictable and mysterious, and will require some patience to figure out what to click on and navigate through. Strange things will flash at you, and questions will require answers, but bear with it as it takes you for a ride. Prepare to create your own experience. Watch and hear what happens, for example, as you drag, or rather conduct, your cursor around the 6-by-6 grid on the main page. And if you find it, the “non-interactive Pong,” one of a series of simple and odd animations that pop up over the looping, spacey-dreamy soundtrack, will entertain your “lonely CPU.” Underlying the site is a philosophical argument against technological commercialism. A banner-ad slogan declares, “The banner is the enemy.” And the overall tone, enhanced by the gray design, whispers dread and decay in an era of “digital disturbance.”

Historians and detectives keep track of data with open source tool

Segrada is a piece of open source software that allows historians (and detectives) to keep track of their data. Unlike wikis or archival databases, its focus lies on information and interrelations within it. Pieces of information might represent persons, places, things, or concepts. These "nodes" can be bidirectionally connected with each other to semantically represent friendship, blood relation, whereabouts, authorship, and so on. Hence the term "semantic graph database," since information can be displayed as a graph of semantically connected nodes. Read more
