You Tube uses video identification software to find copyrighted works and recently it started kicking-in, in full effect. Identify all Rick Roll videos as copyrighted material belonging to Sony Entertainment. The nice thing is that Sony is permitting the video to be posted but either Sony or You Tube enforce a no-embedding policy that breaks Rolltube. This small bump in the road has resulted in a rather nice solution – the Slow Mo Rolltube that agonizingly taunts you at half the speed of the original.
Continue reading for the email You Tube sends you when they discover your video is copywrited content.
This is to notify you that your video sisters kissing (twins) has been as
containing content that may be owned by someone else. The material
identified in your video, the person claiming ownership of the material, and
the policy they have designated for its use on YouTube are detailed below.
Video from Rick Astley-Never Gonna Give You Up
If the policy listed is “Allow,” you do not need to take action. However,
if the policy listed is “Block,” please visit the Video ID Matches page in
your account: http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_copyright Failure to take
action may result in the removal of your video from YouTube.
Above is the White Glove Tracking compilation video Ben and I showed at the New Museum last night. You can also peep the slides from the presentation here. This is the culmination of work that took place over the course of last 2 years. All shine to Zach, Open Frameworks, Jung-Hoon Seo, David Wicks, Tim Knapen, Jonathan Cremieux, Eyebeam, and Rhizome Commissions.
The top ten White Glove data contributers will soon be getting their commemorative prints in the mail. The application and source code for the ASCII generation software used to create the prints can be downloaded here (PC only at this point).
The blinged out ASCII print on the left is made up of the X-Y coordinate data of the white glove movement, and the print on the right is made up of all the email addresses of the data contributers (from most clicks to least starting at the top bottom).

Evan Roth and Steve Lambert will be on a panel at the New Museum this Thursday to discuss their Rhizome Commissions. Each will be giving a brief presentation – Evan on White Glove Tracking, and Steve on Add-Art.
Rhizome Commissions 08 7:30pm
Conversation with eteam, Steve Lambert, Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth, and Rafael Rozendaal
The Rhizome Commissions Program was founded in 2001 to provide support to emerging artists working with new technologies. The forty-four works commissioned to date represent some of the most innovative, pioneering efforts in the field. Tonight, artists eteam (Hajoe Moderegger and Franziska Lamprecht), Steve Lambert, Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth, and Rafael Rozendaal, who received support in the 2008 cycle, present their finished projects as well as other select projects. Additional Rhizome Commissions will be presented in August and October.
2008 Commissioned projects:
I, like many of my generation, spent a fair percentage of my youth firing foam darts at my older brother . We used to throw our Ninja Turtles against the wall until they broke and then re-arrange the body parts, but somehow we never thought to take apart our NERF guns to enhance their speed, range, or firepower.
Maybe it was just a simpler time, when all one had was their Arrowstorm and the second amendment to keep from becoming a Nerf P.O.W.
Things have changed since 9-11, but thanks to people like YouTube user uin13 we can rest assured knowing that good old-fashioned American ingenuity will help maintain our technological edge against the twisted minds of terrorists and older brothers alike. In the following MagStrike Mod, he walks us through how to double your clip capacity without pumping in between. Terrorists hate freedom, but they really really hate foam darts.
Maybe not the most professional How-To, but almost better this way, to share in the discovery, frustration and “fuck it – just use duct tape” attitude that come up in any taking-things-apart session.

This bout of nostalgia is brought to you by “May is National Make a F***ING Post Month” and the fact that I just graduated from college.
