Fragmentos de textos e imagens catadas nesta tela, capturadas desta web, varridas de jornais, revistas, livros, sons, filtradas pelos olhos e ouvidos e escorrendo pelos dedos para serem derramadas sobre as teclas... e viverem eterna e instanta neamente num logradouro digital.

Pela COCHLEA: Beirut - Port of Call
I called through the air that night
My thoughts were still buried in time
We were closer then
I'd been alone sometime
Filled your glass with gin
Filled your heart with pride
You had hope for me now
I danced all around it somehow
Google's homepage is known for its uncluttered design: just the company's signature four-color logo and a search box. But that doesn't mean they can't have fun with it: over the years the Google Doodle, meant to commemorate a person, place or thing of the day, has evolved into its own kind of art form…
Via IRIS: A VIA LACTEA (Lina Chamie, Brasil, 2007)
O personagem principal é São Paulo, uma cidade engarrafada, parada, caótica, transtornada, cenário de encontros e desencontros de um casal enquanto se cruza a metropolis como numa odisseia, São Paulo é a via lactea repleta de pontilhos de estrelas faróis cintilando entre as buzinas e as recordações
Dueto de Marco Ricca e Alice Braga, com apoio de Fernando Alves Pinto.
Sandy Hook Elementary shooting: Why we rushed to find Adam and Ryan Lanza on Facebook.
When police released the name of the man they believe shot up a Connecticut elementary school Friday morning, they unwittingly launched a million Facebook and Twitter searches. Within minutes, the Internet was dissecting the likes, photos, and tweets of young men whose name and home state matched that of the suspect.
What they found played into all of the stereotypes.
Is a Crisis in White Masculinity Leading to Horrific Gun Crimes Like the Sandy Hook Shootings?
These same ideologues, who in the 21st century remain some type of throwback premodern tribesman at the early dawn of human history, are utterly devoted to a fetish object of metal and plastic which they worship as a god. For them, the mass shooting of children in Newton, Connecticut will be a funeral pyre whose light they will read as spirits dancing in the shadows, beckoning to them that more guns equals less crime, and that school teachers--and perhaps even children--should be allowed to carry firearms in school. Magical thinking brings public policy solutions that are not grounded in common sense or empirical reality.
National Shooting Sports Foundation Is Just Three Miles From Newtown Connecticut School Shooting | The New Republic
Just across the highway from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in a stately white building with an American flag flying out front, is the headquarters of the United States’ premiere industry association for gun retailers.
: The 'Right to Bear Arms' Is Not More Important Than a Child's Right to Grow Up
" We spend a lot of time teaching our children to be safe. We hold their hands when they cross the street, tell them not to talk to strangers, and strap them in their carseats. It's a pillar of parenting -- stay safe. But sometimes you send your child to school and they don't come back. I don't even know how to process that.
The answer isn't to wrap our schools in barbed wire and turn them into prisons with pretty murals on the wall and jungle gyms. The answer is to stop ignoring the fact that the availability of guns in this country is literally killing us."
A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths
Almost no one in Japan owns a gun. Most kinds are illegal, with onerous restrictions on buying and maintaining the few that are allowed. Even the country's infamous, mafia-like Yakuza tend to forgo guns; the few exceptions tend to become big national news stories.
Get in Line - Top 10 Worst Silvio Berlusconi Gaffes
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has conquered Italian politics for 17 years, been indicted more than 20 times and was recently convicted of tax evasion by an Italian court. But his political career is not yet over — as he prepares to run again for the premiership, TIME takes a look at his most regrettable faux pas and inappropriate zingers
Voto eletrônico: Hacker de 19 anos revela no Rio como fraudou eleição
Acompanhado por um especialista em transmissão de dados, Reinaldo
Mendonça, e de um delegado de polícia, Alexandre Neto, um jovem hacker de
19 anos, identificado apenas como Rangel por questões de segurança,
mostrou como — através de acesso ilegal e privilegiado à intranet da
Justiça Eleitoral no Rio de Janeiro, sob a responsabilidade técnica da
empresa Oi – interceptou os dados alimentadores do sistema de
totalização e, após o retardo do envio desses dados aos computadores da
Justiça Eleitoral, modificou resultados beneficiando candidatos em
detrimento de outros – sem nada ser oficialmente detectado.
FCC Boss Tired Of Having To Put His iPad Away For Takeoff, Tells FAA To Fix It | Techdirt
Numerous people have talked about the ridiculousness of requiring airplane passengers to put away their iPads or other portable devices during takeoff and landing on airplanes. There used to be excuses about how it could impact the equipment in the plane, but no one actually believes that any more.
One of the greatest ironies, if true, is that Diallo didn’t even know
who DSK was until after television news reported his arrest. What she
saw in front of her in the Sofitel suite was not a global economist and
presidential aspirant; just a pudgy, dirty old man. Of such people and
such incidents, sometimes, history is made.
An old man in Gaza held a placard that read: "You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my father, kill my mother, bombard my country, starve us all, humiliate us all, but I am to blame: I shot a rocket back.
One element of the unremitting torture of Gaza is Israel's "buffer zone" within Gaza, from which Palestinians are barred entry to almost half of Gaza's limited arable land.
Throughout these years, Gaza has been kept on a level of bare survival, imprisoned by land, sea and air. On the eve of the latest attack, the U.N. reported that 40 percent of essential drugs and more than half of essential medical items were out of stock.
The current upsurge of U.S.-Israeli violence dates to January 2006, when Palestinians voted "the wrong way" in the first free election in the Arab world.
‘It’s a virus’: Tom Waits on musicians allowing their work to be featured in commercials
Artists who take money for ads poison and pervert their songs. It reduces them to the level of a jingle, a word that describes the sound of change in your pocket, which is what your songs become. Remember, when you sell your songs for commercials, you are selling your audience as well.
Ladybug Brasil | Carta aberta para a ANL sobre o livro digital
Trechinho que disparou a minha indignação:
Recomendamos estabelecer um intervalo de 120 dias entre o lançamento dos livros impressos no formato de papel no mercado brasileiro e sua liberação nas plataformas digitais
Solicitamos que o desconto para revenda do livro digital para todas as livrarias e para as demais plataformas seja uniforme, possibilitando igualdade de condições para todos os canais de comercialização nesse novo suporte de leitura.
Sugerimos que a diferença de preço a menor do livro digital para o formato impresso seja no máximo igual a 30%.
Na hipótese de a editora ou distribuidora vender diretamente ao consumidor final, o desconto nos livros digitais não deverá exceder 5%
Não sei se é a próxima chegada da Amazon ao Brasil ou a profecia maia do fim do mundo, mas o fato é que nunca vi tanta gente preocupada com o fim do livro. São estudantes que me escrevem motivados por pesquisas escolares, organizadores de eventos literários que me pedem palestras, leitores que manifestam sua apreensão. Em alguns casos, percebo uma espécie perversa de prazer apocalíptico, mas logo desaponto quem quer ver o mar pegando fogo para comer camarão cozido: é que absolutamente não acredito que o livro vai acabar.
