Flattr: innovative micropayment service

"Finally, there's 'flattr', which is a nice name. A micropayment service that lets you simply add a button to your stuff to let people make micropayments to you, for your stuff. From back in the mid '60s Ted Nelson had a vision for micropayments, and why it mattered. We are now moving there. This is the beginning of simply catastrophic change for industrial media. Why? Well when I decide that my tiny annual subscription to The Age [Melbourne newspaper] is not worth my $55 (I don't think it is worth that right now actually), and I instead send that money, even as 55 x $1 to 55 other creators I value, the revenue model for industrial media collapses, and a new one arises. The only change I have to make is to recognise that what I spend on purchasing media is merely a habit, and not providing that much value, so rather than just save that money, why not redirect it to those who are making value for me?"

The World of 100: Our Global Village

"If the world were a village of 100 people, what would its composition be? This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in."

(Toby Ng, 2009)

Intimate Bureaucracy: experimental art that depends on networks of participants

"I coin the phrase, 'intimate bureaucracy' to capture this type of experimental art that depends on networks of participants. ... These almost opposed values of collective action and self–promotion combined to form the alternative to more hierarchical systems of appraising art works. Mixing the apparently contradictory collective versus conspiratorial action, Boggs' intimate bureaucracy is a poetic use of the trappings of large bureaucratic systems and procedures (e.g., money, receipts, correct change, official letters from bureaucrats, etc.) to create intimate aesthetic situations including the pleasures of sharing a special knowledge or a new language among a small network of participants."
(Craig Saper)
