Reinvented, Ryle-Inspired, Recycled Cassette Art: Erika Iris Simmons’ “Ghost In The Machine”

Here are just some of the works of Erika Iris Simmons' "Ghost In The Machine" collection.

Who better than Erika to describe this highly-creative collection?  So, in her words:
In this series I showcase a number of portraits of musicians made out of recycled cassette tape with original cassette. Also included are portraits made from old film and reels. The idea comes from a philosopher's (Ryle) description of how your spirit lives in your body. I imagine we are all, like cassettes, thoughts wrapped up in awkward packaging. : ) "

Images pictured here are of:  Robert Smith (The Cure), Bob Marley, John Lennon, Lauren Hill (Fugees), Jimi Hendrix. 

The full collection can be seen on her Flickr page:

“When You Travel You Learn To Celebrate The Diversity On This Planet, Rather Than Be Threatened By It.”~ Rick Steves (Video)

This talk was recorded by fora.tv at the Commonwealth Club of California.  The talk is based up on Rick Steves’ findings from his new book, “Travel As A Political Act”.

For more of a background on Rick Steves, this shortened bio is from his website, ricksteves.com:

Rick Steves grew up in Edmonds, Washington and studied at the University of Washington where he received degrees in Business Administration and European History. But his real education came in Europe — since 1973 he’s spent 120 days a year in Europe. Spending one third of his adult life living out of a suitcase in Europe has shaped his thinking. Today he employs 80 people at his Europe Through the Back Door headquarters in Edmonds where he produces 30 guidebooks on European travel, the most popular travel series in America on public television, a weekly hour-long national public radio show, and a weekly column syndicated by the Chicago Tribune. Rick and his wife Anne have traveled each of the last 22 years with their two kids, Andy and Jackie.

Google Chrome Says Goodbye To “http://” {Now Let’s Say Goodbye To “www.”!} {From thenextweb.com}

So you know how Google Chrome is supposedly all about simplicity and speed? Well it’s just taken that minimalist mindset a step further.

In Google’s developer version of Chrome, you’ll notice that the http:// in URLs is there no more. Typing in any URL, e.g. http://thenextweb.com will reveal this:

Picture 50 Google Chrome Says Goodbye to http://

As opposed to:

Picture 51 Google Chrome Says Goodbye to http://

Might seem like common sense, after all to your average user including http:// simply adds to the complexity of typing in a web address. For developers however, it’s a different story. Many are not pleased.

Many developers have raised the issues you would assume Google had already considered:

First, what happens in other cases for example where the scheme is https or FTP? Google’s solution is to show those schemes in those cases.

The second concern raised was what happens when copying the URL from Chrome and pasting into another browser that requires the http:// scheme? Google’s solution, your clipboard should automatically still grab the http:// part, we just don’t reveal it. And it’s true, copying a URL from Chrome over to anywhere else will reveal the the http:// as normal.

It’s an interesting move and one that is likely to have other browsers take notice and eventually do the same, after all the most people http:// is just something that they’ve grown used to including and seeing rather than anything they understand.

The biggest question, as OS news; rightfully points out, lies in its implementation and whether other browsers follow Google’s lead and hide in exactly the same manner. If a standard isn’t set, we’ll be left with each browser doing this in their own way and leaving the average user more confused than ever.

Personally? Good riddance.
