und daneben stosse ich auf ein Zitat von Sherry Turkle auf eine Frage vom MAGAZIN:
Warum können uns Roboter und virtuelle Welten so verführen?
Weil sie auf unsere Defizite zielen.
(Sherry Turkle im DAS MAGAZIN, 26/2012)
We are pleased to announce that MISSION ETERNITY's angel-app is passing all core tests, and can therefore now be considered to be in a functional prototype state. It is currently undergoing an extensive testing and refinement phase inside etoy, followed by the development of a minimal GUI, at which point a beta-quality end user release for Mac OS X and open-source unices will be prepared.
During the past years, the internal blog based on the Flux-CMS became the main information hub for internal communications at etoy. The public feed was technically separated and handled by another tool (with the consequence that everybody involved required knowledge about two systems). The new setup - again based on the Flux-CMS - allows to maintain the public-, as well as the internal blog from within the same system. The content gets delivered according to simple state and permission rules that are manually adjustable by the users (which is a default feature of Flux-CMS btw. ).
One of the cool things about Second Life is that players can create new kinds of objects, by writing small programs in a special scripting language to describe how the objects should behave, and then launching objects into the world.
Things got really out of hand when the W-Hats created a doomsday device. It looked like a harmless little orb, but it was programmed to make copies of itself, repeatedly. The single object split into two. Then each of those split, and there were four. Then eight, and sixteen, and so on to infinity.
OK, so what’s iFolder? Basically, it’s a Novell technology that automagically synchronizes files on disparate computers … in the background, without you having to worry about a thing. Pretty cool stuff. It’s included with the latest versions of SUSE, of course, but it isn’t yet bundled with other distros.
sounds pretty kewl. i'll be sinking my teeth into it at the next possible moment and see if this fixes some of etoy's data synchronization and storage problems... welcome.
visitors at the apple expo in paris were very interested in what apple had to say about the sudden integration of etoy. apple fans were very curious as apple representatives tried to explain the unexpected change in strategy.
meanwhile, etoy agents were able to secretly modify the new G5 prior to shipment.
as a distributed global network the etoy.CORPORATION has long faced the challenge of creating a liquid flow of assets (knowledge, info, power, expertise, and resources) between etoy.AGENTS, over the net, and from one etoy.TANK to another.
the KAYWA blog platform provides a perfect solutions to the problem of managing knowledge in this distributed context. As a collaborative tool blogs unlock, transfer, and mediate latent knowledge among the etoy.CREW and the general public.
given the current blogging culture, switching from Moveable Type to KAWYA may be seen as a political statement. Since 1994 etoy has developed software solutions, internal and external, to channel and sync communications with a global audience. experience has shown that the most effective systems are the ones which are most open - which have the ability to morph, grow, evolve, plug-in & plug-out.
the KAWYA architecture symbolizes this flexibility. with a background in science, technology and design KAYWAY is a natural partner for etoy.
