Kyle McDonald and I will be developing a new project at the upcoming Art Hack Day in Brooklyn, which culminates in a public art exhibition at 319 Scholes on Saturday, 1/28 at 7pm.

Internet, you are invited to attend. There will be art, technology, free beer (as in beer) and free source code (as in speech). and $3 beers. The source code remains free.

Over the next few days Kyle and I will be working on the first prototypes of Scratch Markup Language, an open-source system for capturing, describing and digitizing turntablism.

Want to get involved? Sign up for the ScratchML mailing list, follow @scratchML on GitHub or join #fatlab IRC and ping @jamiew

The USB ports on my computer are treated with respect. However sometimes I am in a hurry and do not have the time to properly “eject”. I feel very bad for my computer because I know it’s not voicing how it actually feels every time I insert or “eject”.

Every time you insert or “eject” any USB device your computer makes a sexual moan. The noise could be a woman’s moan, a dog bark who knows, a scream, no matter what it is shit would be ill.

People should have more expressive experiences with their comps (companions-computer).

I aint a programmer.  is this a difficult task?  am i a sicko?

This a browser extension which turns all instances of Mitt Romney to Mittens Romney on web pages. ( Mitt is short for Mittens!!!! )

I’m convinced that nobody in the US would accept having a president named Mittens, so I am releasing a tool to highlight his real ( and rather cute ) name.

Screen shot of the installed extension:

A huffington post article made that bit more silly:

An example google search (before & after installing Mittens):

Install Mittens:
What are you waiting for? Get Mittens Now!

Click to install Mittens Chrome Extension

Download and Install Mittens Safari Extension ( then double click to install )

Click to install Mittens Firefox Extension ( 1.0.1 – New! )

Note: Firefox version was automatically made with this tool and isn’t working on google search results. Working on getting it working 100%. Update: Thanks to Greg Leuch – we have a much better 1.0.1 Firefox version, with google search result integration.

You can grab the code or contribute to the project on github:

Thanks to Greg Leuch for Shaved Biever which the Chrome version is based off of.
