    3:14 What can be more non-polluting than a human powered bike? Sounds
    totalitarian to me, tracking me where I went at what time… Creepy bike

    @LooseLatitude No, they’re actually called Captchas and they’re computer
    generated. Search wikipedia for “Captcha” to find out more.

    @m0nkeybl1tz I liked the clip but the full lecture disappointed. I thought
    it was going to be generally about art and technology whereas the full
    lecture is about maps. 🙁 I have no interest in maps, unfortunately for me.
    I can’t fault Fora for that; I’m just disappointed because as a digital
    artist, I was hoping to hear something relevant to what I do.

    1) He didn’t say that the bike pollutes. It collects data on pollution in
    its vicinity. 2) Data is sent anonymously. You aren’t being tracked. You
    aren’t that important. The government and the corporations don’t care that
    much.

    The full lecture is about Maps. >8{ The title is Digital, Life, Design
    2010: Maps. How lame. I was hoping it would actually be a lecture on art
    and technology rather than friggin maps.

    So they make these wheels to sell at a profit. Than use the consumers to
    gather data which they will than gain profits on again. You know those
    images of words they use to confirm you’re not a computer filling out
    masses of forms on the internet? Those are words that were scanned from a
    book(digitized books) and didn’t come out all that well. A company makes a
    profit on us to figure it out for them. Digital serfdom.
