Data Removal Service

Click here to see full infographic.

Google compiles and holds vast amounts of the world's data.  It's supposed to be totally private but sometimes governments need that information for investigations and they request it rom Google.  Other times, governments find a piece of data offensive or erroneous, and request that Google remove it from its database entirely. The search giant makes all these requests public.  This is a look at which countries ask Google for the most information on its users, which ask Google to remove the most information and how often Google gives information.  China considers any request to Google to be a state secret.  Google, therefore, does not publish the number of its requests. 

Google Voice vintage phone booths

Google introduce old style phone booths across America in locations such as busy college campuses and airports, to advertise the Google Voice calling feature which can be accessed through your Gmail account.  These Google voice phone boxes are completely free to use, and aim to get people to use Google Voice, and see how the quality compares to alternatives.

Do typefaces really matter?

''To most people, typefaces are pretty insignificant. Yet to their devotees, they are the most important feature of text, giving subliminal messages that can either entice or revolt readers, says Tom de Castella.''

Read the article on the BBC.

The Vogel's

Herb and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian and postal worker respectively, are responsible for one of the most outstanding collections of contemporary art ever assembled. Through modest means the duo began purchasing the work of unknown conceptual and minimalist artists. The work had to be cheap and small enough to fit in their small Manhattan apartment.

The plan worked… and soon the Vogel’s were hailed for a certain curatorial genius.

Herb and Dorothy, a documentary directed by Megumi Sasaki, tells their story.

Stephen Doitschinoff / CALMA

One of my favourite artists, Stephen Doitschinoff aka Calma lives in Brazil and creates symbolic art on canvas and on walls.  He has a beautiful monograph published by Gestalten and has shown at the Jonathan Levine Gallery

" Given the deep air of religious significance and symbolism apparent in Stephan Doitschinoff’s art it will come as no surprise to learn his upbringing was very religious. His nom de plume ‘Calma’ means ‘calm down,’ and also has another meaning in Latin which Doitschinoff is particularly keen on as he explains: ‘I like its Latin meaning. It comes from the contraction of Con Alma or C’Alma, which means “with soul.” I started using Calma, as a koan, it appeared next to a depiction of something or someone afflicted or disturbed in the paintings and posters I would put up in Sao Paulo. It wasn’t necessarily something made to be a signature.’ " from Graphotism

Let me learn from you

'Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.' Mary Jean Iron

In Love

One of my favourite performances by the captivating Regina Spektor.

ColaLife want Coca-Cola to open up their distribution channels (which are amazing in developing countries) to carry 'social products', such as oral rehydration salts, to the people who need them desperately. This could be done by incorporating an 'aidpod' into Coca-Cola crates. The content of the aidpods would be locally determined by health professionals.  Read more on their website.

Love Letter

I saw these in the press last August but forgot to post on my blog.  Stephen Powers aka the legendary ESPO worked with the Mural Arts Program and a number of local artists in Philadelphia to paint over 30 of these massive text based murals collectively called Love Letter.  They are all visible from the elevated train which runs along Market Street.  Mr Powers said:  'Hopefully there will be a few sly guys out there who will say to their girl: "Hey Baby, I wrote that up there for you".'
