I ran the inaugural Animated Gif Mashup workshop last week at NIMk as part of Video Vortex. Big thanks to all of the gif hunters and mashers that spent their Thursday wading their feet in the pools of web 1.0. The above video was created entirely from gifs found and mashed by workshop participants over the course of a single day.
A few slides from the resulting presentation:
“FB Resistance is a research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook beeing the dominant social identity management system, researching on ways to change it’s rules and functionality from inside the system, locally via Browser App.” [Full Description here]
Good times in Berlin. We certainly recieved alot of attention for this and gathered lots of cool ideas. We’re still sorting them out. Stay tuned about the results and on the next FB resistance workshop in Barcelona in 2 weeks.
The workshop was originally planned for 10 peeps, but we just raised it to 30 chairs!! So if you want to participate in the workshop (part of this year’s Transmediale Berlin festival) – Submit this form right now with a quick sentence and info about you!!
Facebook Resistance is a research initiative accepting the status quo of Facebook beeing the dominant social identity management system, researching on ways to change it’s rules and functionality from inside the system, locally via Browser App.
FB sets the rules of how-to behave, so we’re asking: Are we happy to live in their visualisation of our online identity or do we want to change it? A change can be as trivial as adding a background-image. Facebook designing your online identity is like IKEA designing your appartment. The only individuality lies in the family pictures standing in your BILLY shelves.
