Hand Written Clock 86

a3buster writes "This clock does not actually have a man inside, but a flatscreen that plays a 24-hour loop of this video by the artist watching his own clock somewhere and painstakingly erasing and re-writing each minute. This video was taken at Design Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach 2009."

Down the street in the alley
Her name was sally

And now Im mad about space junk
Im all burned out about space junk
Oooh walk & talk about space junk
It smashed my babys head
And now my sallys dead

Submission + - Is OpenMoko dead? (openmoko.com)

internet-redstar writes: "The OpenMoko project promised to revolutionise the GSM experience and it even made me forget all about the iPhone. But while the project homepage reads that shipping would start at the end of april, we didn't see anything move at all. If I hadn't seen one for real at FOSDEM, I would have put this in the hoax-category. What's going on at OpenMoko? I still want one!"

Submission + - France bans citizens from reporting violence

An anonymous reader writes: InfoWorld has reported that the French Constitutional Council has approved a law that prohibits anyone other than "professional journalists" from photographing, filming and/or broadcasting acts of violence. Activists are concerned that bloggers and website operators could also be targeted for prosecution if they post violent content... The article describes how the timing is unfortunate since it comes exactly 16 years after the filming of the Rodney King beating by Los Angeles police. Will professional journalists in France be required to seek a license from the government? Just who is a "professional journalist"?
