What is a pixel?

without comments

minecraft-pixel-worsop

Last week I gave a little workshop to a group of 9-11 year olds at my sons school in Berlin. While we were building paper craft models and painted swords from the game Minecraft I talked with the kids about pixels. Children today often look at very high resolutions screens ( ipads, tablets etc). Pixels became so small over the past 5 years that you hardly can see them with your eyes any more. This is one of the reasons why generation retina doesn t really understand the retro-pixel-look reference in Minecraft. For them pixels ARE Mincratft. :)) I showed them a bunch of old games like Boulderdash and Doom II. We talked about how 2D games became 3D  and the diffrerent perspectives like the first person view etc. It was fun! In the end they ran off with their freshly painted wodden swords to play Minecraft in the yard. ;))

What was the architect thinking? – Swatiska BND floor plan hoax

without comments

Inspired by Travor Paglens latest pictures of Inteligence HQs released on The Intercept I took the liberty to make some slight photoshop modifications to a picture of the new BND HQ in Berlin. :)) The hoax tweet with the modified picture raised quickly a lot of attention, questions and doubts. Also the fake NYT url i added in the spirit of Fake URL trolling helped to get some fast retweets. :)) “Never hit RT before you ve seen the www!”

The picture was doubted by many users. Some of them took the effort to point out the fake. ..

…while others users were wondering  about the broken NYT link (which never existed) :))
