  1. Arthur C. Clarke, Alvin Toffler, and Margaret Mead on Man’s Future

    What does the future look like from the past? This exciting program with three people that could not better represent the intelligentsia of futurism circa 1970. This recording is from a radio program called “Sound on Film”, a series on films and the people who make them. This episode is entitled “2001–Science Fiction or Man’s Future?” Recorded May 7th, 1970. Joseph Gelman is the moderator.

    At the time of this recording Arthur C. Clarke had recently collaborated on the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey with Stanley Kubrick. Alvin Toffler’s mega-influential book, Future Shock, is about to be published. And Margaret Mead is the world’s foremost cultural anthropologist.

    An intriguing conversation that still has relevance today.

  2. NPP103: Beatriz Busaniche – Argentina Copyleft!

    Beatriz Busaniche ist eine der Autorinnen des gestern erschienenen Buchs “Argentina Copyleft!” und erzählt uns von der Copyright-Situation in Argentinien, das zu den Ländern mit den restriktivsten Copyright-Gesetzen gehört. International am bekanntesten ist wohl der Fall des Philosophieprofessors Horacio Potel, der spanische Übersetzungen der Werke von Nietzsche, Heidegger und Derrida für seine Studenten ins Netz stellte und sich damit nicht unerhebliche juristische Schwierigkeiten einhandelte. Eine große Welle der Solidarisierung ging seinem Freispruch voraus. Mit etwas breiterem Blick auf die Idee des geistigen Eigentums betont sie zum Ende des Gesprächs die Bedeutung von Dezentralität und Medienkompetenz für den Erhalt des Internets wie wir es heute kennen. Wie immer gibt es das Gespräch als .ogg und als .mp3.

  3. Information Is Beautiful

    In an age of high-speed living and info overload, visualized information has incredible potential to help us quickly understand, navigate and find meaning in a complex world.

    The use of infographics, data visualisations and information design is a rising trend across many disciplines: science, design, journalism and web. At the same time, daily exposure to the web is creating a incredibly design-literate population. Could this be a new language?

    In his session, David will share his passion for this merging of design, information, text and story to unveil some of the interesting, unexpected and sometimes magical things that happen when you visualise data, knowledge and ideas. And, admitting that his book is as full of mistakes as it is successes, he’ll also explore some of the common pitfalls, traps and FAILS that dog this young design form.

    Using examples from his book and blog, he’ll share thoughts on what makes a successful information visualisation and journalistic tips, especially for designers, on how to zero in on interesting data and subjects—and how designing information can expose your own biases and change your views about the world. Oh yeah!

  5. Science & The City: What Time Is It?

    Famed screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and theoretical physicist Brian Greene dissect time as we know it. What is the smallest unit of time, and what does it look like? For starters, you should stop looking at the clock, and start looking at the universe.

  6. CSS and Fonts: Fluid Web Typography

    For almost 15 years, Web designers have had a list of 10 "Core Web fonts" to choose from. Many ask, "Why can't I just download a font file from my Web server the same way I can an image?" Well, actually, you can. The verbiage for font linking is a little different than images, but the syntax for Webfont linking has been around for over 10 years as a part of the CSS standard. Web typography expert Jason Cranford Teague shows you how to apply the principles of fluid typography, to choose, find and use Webfonts and create your unique typographic voice. Come and find out why 2010 is going to be the year of Web typography.
