  1. Get inside a Google Street View Car.
  2. Open your favorite Twitter app on GPS enabled smartphone.
  3. Tweet sporadically to plot geographic points on the map.
  4. Relax as the blogosphere and media outlets go into a frenzy.

Of course, the entire hoax needs a little software to track the movement. Detailed instructions on creating the map* can be found at github.com/gleuch/gcar-tracker.

(*Some computer skillz required.)

One of the biggest ways we communicate with other fellows at F.A.T. is through IRC chat. And while some of our fellows could not make it to Berlin for transmediale.10, we set up two large screen panels with our IRC chat room visible to gallery members. But this is not fair for our fellows, since there is no way to communicate with the people watching them in IRC. So we attached a webcam to one of the computers. The results have allowed our absent fellows to troll visitors from afar, with humorous results.

Now you too can check out the action: See the cam and the chatroom!

fuckCAPTCHA, an open-source alternative to the spam prevention & evil humanization of human brain cycles for corporate pet projects. Add this to your site!

The founder of reCAPTCHA created their tool to prevent spam and help humanize OCR scanning errors, later noting that he had “unwittingly created a system that was frittering away, in ten-second increments, millions of hours of a most precious resource: human brain cycles.”

In Sept 2009, Google bought reCAPTCHA, assumingly to help with the work of their book scanning project.

So why support them when you can reaffirm your efforts of enforcing the fuck corporate culture by typing it in for every time to need to verify yourself as a non-evil human.

Includes hearing impared audio captchas!


Sample the code below:
