NMI 07 – roof party

Friday, June 29th, 2007

No cockroach mutants..;) – just antenna of a TV news station which is apparently rather on the dark side of the rain bow..:)

Some few more images from the NMI07 party yesterday evening on the roof terrace of the academy of sciences after the click.


NMI 2007

Thursday, June 28th, 2007


I am currently at the NMI 2007 conference which runs from morning till night – if one includes the after hour work, like a boat trip on Berlin waters, which took place last night (just one photo from the boat trip – funny to watch the Hauptbahnhof from this perspective):

Arnold Böcklin “Medusa” – image source from wikipedia

MEDUSALEM. Researchers from Israel found out that our Internet galaxy has in its center a Medusa head (they call it actually a Medusa model), i.e. a head which grows snakes instead of hair.

Recently activist(s)/vandalist(s)/artist(s) (?) cut out the “Alice” of the posters which belong to a product branding or advertising campaign by Hansenet.

rome reborn 1.0

Tuesday, June 12th, 2007

The Institute for Advanced Technologies in the Humanities at the University of Virginia recently presented at a press conference in Rome the virtual city project rome reborn 1.0:

Visitors to virtual Rome will be able to do even more than ancient Romans did: They can crawl through the bowels of the Colosseum, filled with lion cages and primitive elevators, and fly up for a detailed look at bas-reliefs and inscriptions atop triumphal arches.

“This is the first step in the creation of a virtual time machine, which our children and grandchildren will use to study the history of Rome and many other great cities around the world,” said Bernard Frischer of the University of Virginia, who led the project.

The $2 million simulation will be used by scientists to run experiments – such as determining the crowd capacity of ancient buildings – and as a scholarly journal that will be updated at each new discovery of one of Rome’s marvels.
