Ad Generator

As evidenced by my earlier entries on advertising in the Rose Bowl and in an NFL Playoff game, Ia€™m not really interested in constantly being advertised at. In part, ita€™s because it happens alot and in part because the ads are generally bad and in part because people are so rarely selling anything Ia€™m the least bit interested in buying.

However, once in awhile, something new and interesting comes along. This time ita€™s in the form of an art project that combines the best of Web 2.0 into something interesting that ad agencies ought to look at. Alexis Lloyd created the Ad Generator as part of his thesis for a Masters of Fine Arts. Given that hea€™s randomly generating the slogans and randomly pulling images from Flickr as a mashup, ita€™s better than at least 25% of the ads you see out there (I cana€™t figure out what hea€™s selling exactly, but thata€™s common in ads these days.)

Steven Pinker

"We have to do two things with language. We’ve got to convey a message and we’ve got to negotiate what kind of social relationship we have with someone," Pinker says in a telephone interview from his home in Cambridge, Mass.

"I have a chapter on verbs in this book because verbs are how we talk about causation, who did what to whom, who’s responsible for someone’s death. The answer to that is very much like who gets to be the subject of a verb. I argue that we have a sense of causal agency or responsibility that both governs our language and governs our moral and legal reasoning."

1st generation Graffiti in Iran

Are there any particular themes you would not express in your graffiti?

I for myself dona€™t have any limits really, but when you live in a sittuation where doing something like graffiti could cost your life, then you should think about whether it is actually worth dying for?

Graffiti is not really taken seriously here - yet. Most Iranian people probably dona€™t pay great attention to walls and images, because they dona€™t consider a wall painting to be a media for free personal expression or to deliver any particular unique message anyway.

However, when you step into the graffiti scene in Iran you are definitely a€oeon the other side of the red linea€A - even for most of your friends. Soa€¦ is it worth risking so much for it?

No more volleyball or detailing

Fire engines are being fitted with CCTV cameras that may be used to trap motorists driving without seatbelts or using a mobile phone at the wheel.

The move could be a moneyspinner for fire authorities all over the country but would be seen as yet another Big Brother onslaught on Britaina€™s 33million motorists.

Motoring organisations and the Fire Brigades Union have condemned the plan, saying firefighters would lose the respect of the public if they take on the role of traffic-law enforcers.

South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority has announced it is paying A£440,000 to fit 39 fire engines with six cameras each.

The cameras could be linked to numberplate- recognition systems, which would allow fines to be issued to drivers spotted offending.

The technology could also catch people driving in bus lanes or with inappropriate child seats.

Edmund King, executive director of the RAC Foundation for Motoring, said: a€oeThis is a ridiculous suggestion.
