Controversial Aotearoa New Zealand surveillance laws pass

"The controversial spy laws have been passed by Parliament by 61 votes to 59. The laws were drafted in the wake of a succession of blunders by New Zealand's foreign intelligence agency, the Government Communications Security Bureau, which included illegally spying on German internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom. Earlier, Prime Minister John Key acknowledged new surveillance laws have 'alarmed' some people but blames the Government's opponents for stoking their fears. Legislation giving the GCSB the power to spy on New Zealanders was debated in Parliament today ahead of being passed into law."

Network: our identities revealed through our network traffic

"Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network."

Listening Post: Visualising and Singing Internet Traffic

"Listening Post is an art installation that culls text fragments in real time from thousands of unrestricted Internet chat rooms, bulletin boards and other public forums. The texts are read (or sung) by a voice synthesizer, and simultaneously displayed across a suspended grid of more than two hundred small electronic screens."

(Ben Rubin, EAR Studio)

VisitorVille: innovative website traffic statistics visualisation software

"VisitorVille provides lively, visual information about a web site effectiveness: traffic patterns, advertising success and visitor demographics, behaviour and interaction.The system represents referrers as buses and web pages as buildings. When a new visitor arrives, a bus delivers him to a building. To move between buildings, the visitor either walk, take a cab or – if he's a VIP – a limousine or helicopter. A click on any person pulls up a Visitor Passport with over 20 pieces of information (such as navigation path, location, organization, time on site, etc.) Another click can even initiate a chat with him."

Fuel: Visualising Network Traffic

"Fuel is a field of stars, fueled by network traffic. Stars emit energy, grow and collapse as quanta of traffic pass through them. Each star is an IP that is part of your network, or being accessed by your network – a burning entity whose position is determined by passing the host address through secure encryption. Every local network has a unique constellation of fixed and transient hosts.

Fuel is a Carnivore–client that is designed to illustrate network traffic through the presentation of virtual stars. The programme interprets the changing dynamics of network traffic and presents it as evolving virtual stars."
