…Ben the Bodyguard walks the streets of the web?

Ben The Bodyguard

Ben the Bodyguard is a new app being developed for iOS that will protect passwords, photos, contacts, and anything else that you want to keep away from the prying eyes of anyone else.

What’s really neat about Ben though is his website, which features a really innovative navigation method to ‘walk’ you through the features.

Make sure to check it out before the release in January, though I’d imagine they’ll replace it with something equally amazing at that time as well.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Personas?

Personas

Personas is a fascinating art piece that takes a name and ‘scours the web for information and attempts to characterize the person – to fit them to a predetermined set of categories that an algorithmic process created from a massive corpus of data’.

Personas shows you how the Internet sees you. It allows you to see how the machine is working, revealing the computer’s uncanny insights and inadvertent errors such as the mischaracterizations caused by the inability to separate data from multiple owners of the same name. It is meant for the viewer to reflect on our current and future world where digital histories are as important – if not more important – than oral histories, and computational methods of condensing our digital traces are opaque and socially ignorant – for now. Fortunes are sought through data-mining vast information repositories, and this kind of data is indispensable but far from infallible.

So go ahead; give it your name and give it a shot.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Eternal Moonwalk?

Eternal Moonwalk

The Eternal Moonwalk is a user generated, endlessly looping tribute to the late, great Michael Jackson.

Users from all around the world have submitted moonwalk videos, and the site stitches them all together and allows you to add your own sound effects as MJ wannabes dance across your screen.

Unfortunately, as proven by the videos, there can only be one Michael Jackson.
