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.

GIF source material available here (1 | 2 | 3). Thanks to Video Vortex for the invitation, NIMk for hosting and Anna for the write up.

A few slides from the resulting presentation:

Today is the last chance to vote for Graffiti Analysis and Graffiti Markup Language for the Transmediale 2011 Open Web Award. The margin is still very close (within 50 votes), so every vote really counts at this point.

Q. Is the voting process annoying?
A. Yes.

Q. Is it ridiculous to pit three very strong open initiatives against each other for a relatively small amount of funding?
A. Maybe.

Q. If you win, will you use the opportunity to further alienate yourself from the new media arts festival scene?
A. Probably.

For instructions on how to vote and to see the current vote tally go to:

Even if you’re not a fan of graffiti, a vote for GA/GML is a vote for bringing new audiences into the free culture movement and expanding the influence of open source and open data further into popular culture.

For other reasons to vote for GA and GML look no further than community development from just the last few months….

Muharrem Yildirim and Aytac Kanaci’s on going developments with their GML Recording Machine:

Graffiti Research Lab Germany’s SVG2BVG (currently on display in Transmediale’s Open Zone):

An exciting new hardware design and use of Laser Tag to protest censorship issues in the arts at the MOCA in Los Angeles (to read more about the controversy surrounding Jeffrey Deitch’s and MOCA’s decision to remove a mural by BLU see: LA Times, Huffington Post and Boing Boing):
