The most visited websites

I am always curious about websites statistics. Today I came across this article of the 500 most popular sites on the web. Not so many surprises there. There are lists of the most popular sorted by country, genre etc and more important we can check the rankings of our sites and compare them with other sites too.

Harold Pinter Nobel speech

Harold Pinter condemned the invasion of Iraq:

"a bandit act, an act of blatant state terrorism, demonstrating absolute contempt for the concept of international law. The invasion was an arbitrary military action inspired by a series of lies upon lies and gross manipulation of the media and therefore of the public; an act intended to consolidate American military and economic control of the Middle East masquerading--as a last resort--all other justifications having failed to justify themselves--as liberation. A formidable assertion of military force responsible for the death and mutilation of thousands and thousands of innocent people."

Poetry is not over: an online exhibtion

Poetry is not over reunites young international artists who find or suggest poetry or a kind of oneiric expression in the algorithms, the codes, the complexities of the networks, or more generally the aesthetics of what could be called the computing.

People in London have a reason to celebrate these days. Same sex marriages are legal. It is a victory for all of us who believe that sexuality should not be an obstacle for people having the same rights and benefits. It is a defeat for all those remaining governments who still insist on not passing similar laws and amendments. Mr Karamanlis don't mess with us!

Athens is full of Paris

Paris Hilton's sex video is deja-vu. I was driving throughout Athens this weekend and all I could see was these big billboards advertising a sex magazine with Paris Hilton on the cover. The magazine has a DVD supplement with the uncut version of her homemade sex video, shot in LA few years ago. It is surprising to see a sex magazine with so much advertising. Is it sponsored from somewhere?! ;-)

The next media consumption

Vito Campanelli is writing a book about the perception of digital culture. I was asked to answer some questions that Lev Manovich thought for the book. Here is one of them:

While the tools to produce one own media have been more accessible and more powerful, people never consumed more commercial media than now. Thus the essential division between 'media amateurs' and 'media professionals' which got established in the beginning seems to be as strong as ever. Will this situation ever change? What will be the next stage in media consumption after MP3 players, DVD recorders, CD burners, etc, etc, etc.?

Things are more complicated now. The division of the amateurs and professionals is ambivalent. Who can be defined as a pro or amateur finally? A guy that produces music on a single laptop and makes it a Top 10 hit... is he an amateur?
Portable video is the next "product" and has more potential than music because of numbers. A top-selling cd can sell 500.000 in week but a cool sitcom can have 40 million in a week. At the same time Hollywood is going bad. It is time for do-it-yourself video producers to contribute to the entairtainment business. Porno too. Video podcasting will be on the spotlight. People already have started heading back to videogames. The death of an online player in a role-playing game like World of Warcraft is bigger headline on Google News than if Tom Cruise is gay or not.

I first read about Mathias Herrmann almost 3 years ago in Butt magazine. I loved his interview and since then I occassionaly visit his website. In his photos he uses his nude body in a provocative and witty way and comments on going public with his HIV positive status. Besides being an artist and sexy, Matthias is the president of Secession, a prestigious institution for contemporary art in Vienna check here
