STEAMHORSE


per Siracura's discussion of the term "e-book" and his analogy of the car vs. horse debate....

(from nextnature.net)

This remarkable proposal for a steam powered street locomotive was invented by Mathewson in 1876. According to the inventor the goal was to make a machine resembling a horse in form, so as not to frighten the horses on the streets. I may be wrong, but I think it would be a pretty dim horse that would be fooled by this biomimicmarketing avant la lettre. Perhaps another purpose was to make the steam powered carriage more acceptable to people.

Surely, this steam horse illustrates the notion that new media (steam powered carriages in this case) often try to mimic an older medium in order to become accepted more easily. Yet over time, the older medium is superseded and transformed into a cultural relic (horse powered carriages in this case). Other examples of this principle are the electric candle light, electronic mail, and the record collection on your mp3-player.

Wes & Andrea - Timemap Project


Here?s the link to our timemap on Johnson:

http://courses.ats.rochester.edu/eaves/timeline/everett/TimeMap_Lab.html

I uploaded the pictures from the Dictionary that were included in our PowerPoint so that they could be accessed from the webpage itself. (Nora?thank you so much for writing the html code to create links to the pictures of Johnson and Rush Rhees a few days ago. I never would have been able to figure out how to link to these new images otherwise.)

Note: For some reason, though the points seem to be appearing on the map, they are not appearing on the timelines. But that may just be a problem with my browser.

Objectified


I just read an article in the International Herald Tribune about a new movie by the makers of _Helvetica_. This one is _Objectified_, about product design. Sounded like something I'd definitely want to see. From the web:

Objectified: Gary's New Film - Objectified is the next film from director Gary Hustwit. It's about industrial design, and the creativity at work behind everything from toothbrushes to tech gadgets. It's about the people who re-examine, re-evaluate and re-invent our manufactured environment on a daily basis. It's about our relationship to mass-produced objects and, by extension, the people who design them. Visit the website for more info!

One last thing about the timemaps


The projects are coming along nicely but I've come accross a small fix that I think most of you will benefit from. The timeline code is set up in intervals of months on the top and years on the bottom. If your data points (dates) are far apart (and most of them are) you can change the top interval to years or even decades- just replace Timeline.DateTime.MONTH with Timeline.DateTime.YEAR or imeline.DateTime.DECADE. Then change the next band Timeline.DateTime.YEAR to Timeline.DateTime.DECADE or Timeline.DateTime.CENTURY.

You can change the colors by changing this part of the code:

this.ether = {
backgroundColors: [
"#B27",
"#367",
"#CCC",
"#AAA"
],

#B27 is that purple and #367 is the turquoise. Feel free to change them- here is a website with colorcodes: http://www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_colornames.asp

Adding Pictures to your Pop Up Bubbles on the TimeMap


You need to use escaped html to add images to your bubbles in the timeline project- The CDATA tag doesn't seem to work -here is a little tool that will write them for you:

<href="http://www.reconn.us/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,62/">http://www.reconn.us/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,62/</href>

so you put <img src=?image.jpg?/> in the box and it will write the escaped html for you- just paste it into the description either before or after your description text (with a space of course) and it should add your pic as long as it is in the root folder of your webserver.

Conference of the Book


Just to indicate that people really do get together to talk about this stuff:


SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE BOOK
The University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, Scotland
16-18 October 2009
http://book-conference.com

We are particularly excited about holding this year's Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland. The beautiful and historic city of Edinburgh has long served as a center of learning and the arts. It is the home of the world's largest book festival and oldest literary award. Edinburgh's important role in literature was recognized in 2004 when it was named the first UNESCO City of Literature. The Book Conference venue, the University of Edinburgh, has contributed significantly to the city's, and the nation's achievements. Since its founding in 1582 it has made vital contributions to learning and scholarship. We expect that the Seventh International Conference on the Book will make contributions of its own, in the spirit of this impressive tradition.

The Book Conference serves as an inclusive forum for examining the past, current and future role of the book. It proceeds from recognition that although the book is an old medium of expression, it embodies thousands of years' experience of recording knowledge. The pervasive influence of this experience continues to shape newer forms of information technology, while at the same time providing a reference point for innovation.

The Book Conference not only considers the book and other information technologies as artefacts or discrete objects, it also examines other key aspects of the information society, including publishing, libraries, information systems, literacy, and education. Broadly speaking, the Conference engages the interrelation between changes in thought, creation, production and distribution, and the role and meaning of the book and other information technologies. The Book Conference welcomes a wide range of participants from the world of books including authors, publishers, printers, librarians, IT specialists, book retailers, editors, literacy educators, and academic researchers and scholars from all disciplinary traditions.

The Conference includes plenary presentations by accomplished researchers, scholars and practitioners, as well as numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed International Journal of the Book. If you are unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic Journal.

Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this Conference, we also encourage you to present on the Conference YouTube Channel. Please select the Online Sessions link on the Conference website for further details.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 16 April 2009. Future deadlines will be announced on the Forum website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the Conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the Conference website - http://book-conference.com

We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to join us in Edinburgh, Scotland in October 2009.

Yours sincerely,

Garett Gietzen
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA
For the Advisory Board, International Conference on the Book and International Journal of the Book

BIO
Renowned, cutting edge novelist, short story writer, critic, and hypertext pioneer, Robert Coover, is the author of over twenty books?many of them controversial, all of them thought provoking?such as The Public Burning, The Origin of the Brunists, The Adventures of Lucky Pierre: Director?s Cut, Pricksongs and Descants, and most recently, Stepmother. Described by the New York Times as, "one of America's quirkiest writers, if by 'quirky' we mean an unwillingness to abide by ordinary fictional rules,? Coover?s fiction often examines darkly laughable elements of the human experience, drawing upon fairy tales, the history of baseball, religious cults, and perhaps most famously, the presidency of Richard Nixon and the Rosenberg trials. He remains a key figure in the postmodern novel, a groundbreaking founder of hypertext fiction, and his work?often described as subversive and dark, comic and grotesque?is core to understanding developments in the contemporary American novel.

As the T.B. Stowell Adjunct Professor of Literary Arts at Brown University, Robert Coover is currently exploring the immersive virtual reality environments of "CaveWriting.? He is a founder of both the Electronic Literature Organization and Brown's Freedom to Write Program. Edmund White has called him, ? a one-man Big Bang of exploding creative force?; Ben Marcus, ?a brilliant mythmaker, a potty-mouthed Svengali, and an evil technician of metaphors?; and Michiko Kakutani, ?the funniest and most malicious,? of American postmodern writers, ?mixing up broad social and political satire with vaudeville turns, lewd pratfalls and clever word plays that make us rethink both the mechanics of the world and our relationship to it."

Books in the Post-Book World




As we move into our study of e-books and other digital printing technologies, it seems appropriate to ask the question, what are we going to do with all of those books that we?ll soon no longer need?

Ok, maybe books will still be useful, but I did find two artists who have done some cool work by 'destroying' books.

Desktop Publishing and Web Design Freeware


Freeware is exciting! For those of you interested in desktop publishing or web design but can't afford InDesign or Dream Weaver:


Scribus is a free, open source page layout design program similar to InDesign, though not as powerful. I've used it, and it's a good program.


Nvu is a free, open source web design program. I haven't tried it yet, but I hear good things. It looks very different from Dream Weaver. I'd like to get it soon so I can work on the TimeMap from home. The website has videos on "Getting Started with Nvu."

I've had good only experiences with open source software. You can find open source versions of nearly everything: operating systems, music players, photo editors, firewalls, web browsers, etc. Firefox and Open Office are popular open source alternatives to Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office.

A New Theory Concerning the Authorship of the Dead Sea Scrolls


As Wes and I noted in our presentation, the question of who authored the Dead Sea Scrolls is, according to some, open for debate. Now Rachel Elior of Jerusalem's Hebrew University has not only made the claim that the Essenes, the group generally believed to have been the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, did not compose the documents-- she claims the Essenes (at least as history has portrayed them) never existed. Apparently her theory has "shaken the bedrock of biblical scholarship." You can read the article from Time Magazine here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/20090316/wl_time/08599188542100.

Joe & Ryan Book Project: H.D. Thoreau


After noticing the substantial collection of Thoreau's works in Rare Books, Joe and I decided to use him for our book project. We probably won't focus on a single work. Thoreau kept many records of various natures: from light musing to agricultural information. We plan on hunting around for interesting texts to see which ones interest us and offer enough material for the project.



We've already been to Rare Books to see their first edition of Walden, and for as relatively recent as the text is, there is a surprising amount of information available in examining the codex. There are also plenty of unanswered questions, which is what interests us. One possible route would involve comparing subsequent publications of Walden through the close of the 18th century.

Small Press Book Fair


The Small Press Book fair is lots of fun - I would encourage everyone to check it out! Lots of handmade books, zines, and comics. This year, they're adding workshops on bookmaking - all free & open to the public.

***
The Buffalo Small Press Book Fair is a regional one day event that brings booksellers, authors, bookmakers, zinesters, small presses, artists, poets, and other cultural workers (and enthusiasts) together in a venue where they can share ideas, showcase their art, and peddle their wares. Poetry readings, performances, discussions, and related lectures are also scheduled to go on throughout the day.

Some things mentioned in class today


In class today, when we were shown pictures of the Eames's chairs, I knew I had seen them somewhere before. One of my friends awhile back had some tattoo work done by a very talented artist named Nick Baxter (http://www.nickbaxter.com/).

I'm not sure how this relates necessarily, however, I wonder if one could apply some of our previous discussions to include tattoo and the flesh as a medium: A piece of artwork as temporary as the canvas upon which it has been placed, far more fleeting than text on printed paper.

So anyways, one of Baxter's customers really liked designer chairs:

Also, here is the article I mentioned to Rachel about this dude who implanted a surveillance camera into his prosthetic eye:

That prosthetic eye camera reminds me of "We Live in Public," a documentary about a surveillance/interactive art experiment where 100 people were filmed 24/7. I haven't seen it (yet), but you can see the trailer here:

Kindle reader for the iPhone, etc.--new forms of reading


Maybe worth noticing how the little machine is attached to a marketing method (based on the iTunes paradigm) that can be attached to other little machines so that they can tap the same market, funnel products (in this case e-books) to *those* machines, etc.

  Rachel Lee  says:
cool! looks like the "course feed" just records all the changes to the site, like comments & blog posts & whatnot. SO MUCH EASIER than subscribing to individual feeds (like the blog RSS - and actually, you can't subscribe to comments anyway).
