I’m teaming up with the Media Facades Festival to bring Graffiti Analysis and your tag to big ass digital display systems all across Europe and replace ad space with graff space.

How It Works:

1) Digitally capture your graffiti tag using the free (and open source) Graffiti Analysis Capture Application (HOW TO guide here). Your tag will be saved in Graffiti Markup Language format (.gml). (Additional info on capturing your tag is provided below).

2) Upload the .gml file of your tag to, an open repository for sharing and archiving motion captured graffiti tags. Create an account and add the keyword ‘mff2010′ to all tags you would like considered for public display. Other related keywords such as name and location are suggested but not required.

3) On August 1, 2010, I will begin making selections based on tags submitted under the keyword ‘mff2010′. I will try to highlight as many tags as possible, although this will depend on the number of entries and display time available. Everyone is welcome to submit, but preferential treatment will be given to graffiti writers.

4) I will send this data to collaborators in the Media Facade Festival for public display. Tags will be displayed on large scale highly public digital displays from August 27 to Oct. 2. Potential places your tag might show include the 7,536 screens in the 1,106 coaches in the Berlin Subway, the BBC Big Screens in Liverpool and the Gasometer Nightscreen in Berlin.

Submissions can be made anytime from now until July 31, 2010.

Hackers / developers interested in getting involved, please refer to the Graffiti Analysis source code and wish list.

How to make a submission using your iPhone (Graffiti Analysis 2.0: DustTag):

2) Create an account at and add your iPhone UUID on your account settings page. This will automatically send all tags uploaded from your iPhone directly to your 000000book account.
3) After creating you tag on the iPhone, hit OPTIONS, then Add Keyword. Enter MFF2010, hit Return and then press Upload. You can confirm the upload by going to[yourname]. Make sure you see MFF2010 listed under ‘gml_keywords’ in the lower right.

Big ups to Jamie Wilkinson for making all the last-minute 000000book updates!

The Aram Bartholl curated SPEED SHOW vol.1: TELE-INTERNET was a big success last Friday. “Hit an Internet-cafe, rent all computers they have and run a show on them for one night.” Art galleries had their chance, we’re moving to Internet Cafes. The openings are less pretentious, the gallery doesn’t take 50% and the internet always works. The piece I showed is linked below.

WARNING…. this page contains NSFW audio and an irresponsible amount of animated gifs that may crash your browser. If you are not technically prepared for the ensuing browser party you can view the screen capture video below.

Rhizome’s 7 on 7 event took place this weekend. I had the opportunity to work with Matt Mullenweg (creator of WordPress) on a 24 hour speed project. Together we implemented a series of opt-in interventions in the admin / Dashboard section of WordPress. The project is now live on all 12 million WordPress hosted blogs. You can activate it by clicking the “surprise me” option in your Personal Settings page.

For more information you can view Matt’s Surprise Me post on Business Week and the New York Times also covered the event. Video of the presentation should be available shortly at

The current “fun mode” features we have implemented include Humanized Statistics, 2X Publish and Sacred Acts of Publishing. More info on each listed below:

Humanized Statistics: A different way of thinking about your stats. The new “humanize” tab in the stats panel displays photos from towns with populations matching the current daily number of visitors to your blog.

2X Scale Publish Button: A small step towards making the publish button visually reflect its importance and power over other lesser buttons.

Sacred Acts of Publishing: Positive reinforcement for the often solitary act of publishing. Upon hitting the publish button, users may experience a video playback of backboard-shattering slam dunks, game show victories or epic slow claps. You may be alone in your bedroom at 3am when you finally hit the publish button, but that’s no reason not to receive a round of high fives and a chest bump:

This is an example of what you might see in your admin panel shortly after hitting the publish button:

And this is a dramatic reenactment of the user experience:

Big thanks to Rhizome for the invitation to take part in such an amazing event. And huge props to Matt, who was a pleasure to work with. Hopefully we’ll be rolling out some new “fun mode” features soon.
