  1. My Life in the Bush of Ghosts: WATCH

    Photos from Eno and Byrne’s 1981(?) recording session. (via The Online Photographer)

  2. The Online Photographer: The Culture of Photography

    Both for the topic – about how the different kinds of photography are changing – but also as an example of a blog with routinely great (moderated) comments. It’s also wonderful that Mike Johnston pulls out the best comments at the end of each post.

    @0898CHEATHCO Good idea. Weird the things that one takes for granted but are actually quite country specific.

    @tominsam I’m not sure that will travel well unfortunately. Anything else?

    @tobybarnes But I've no idea if it is like the US… but that list is better than what I have so far (nothing), so thanks.

    What foods might an English expat in Germany miss? Pork pie, British sausages?

    @phl I had no idea. I assume there are better alternatives these days.

    @blech Well Range Rover vs Land Rover. And depends on where it's being used.

    @paulpod Also, every time I see one of your photos I want to live in the country.

    Every time I see a Land Rover I want to go and live in the country with one. I've never driven a Land Rover or lived in the country.

    @0898CHEATHCO HACK THE ART.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Tracey Emin sprang to fame in 1997 with ‘Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963–1995’, which she created at a hackathon in a Millets store.

    Henry Moore became an overnight sensation (literally!) after winning an all-night hackathon at a stone quarry in 1921.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Pablo Picasso was discovered after winning an 1893 hackathon sponsored by a Barcelona manufacturer of oil paint.

    Do people run events like this for *actual* artists to produce free work, or are digital folk the only ones desperate/stupid enough?

    Might as well say "Take any form of matter and transform it into a creative physical artwork." hackerleague.org/hackathons/hac…

    Weird when people fave tweets from the past, particularly when they fave the other side of an argument you were having.
