: "THOLOS uses completely state-of-the-art visual and audio processing technology and software. The thoroughly researched and tested cylinders will find its place at the heart of major cities - for example at the St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna or the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin - making them instant symbols of pan-European identity. THOLOS - the 'materializing' of the European Union vision.

Central urban places, in the middle of European Metropolis, guarantee extraordinary opportunities to see while creating a so-far unknown promotional effect. THOLOS will be the innovative landmark of the city.

THOLOS and its location will be the multi-cultural and tourist meeting center since it will also be a presentation tool for art movies, cultural media, documentations and other events. "

TelevisionWeek -- Media and Television Technology

TelevisionWeek -- Media and Television Technology: "he Media Center is dead on arrival. The American people will not watch television on their PCs-not today, not tomorrow, not ever. The very concept is foreign to the way we think. Many Americans spend long hours every day hunched over a personal computer. Consequently, most of us associate the PC with the unpleasantness of work. That will not change no matter how many video features are added."

Big on Borges
Date: 14 August 2003
Not only a rather good writer who knew how to tell a twisted tale, Jorge Luis Borges also framed some of the key philosophical questions surrounding cyberspace - his Library of Babel becoming something of an archetypical metaphor for the Internet (even for people who have never read it). Therefore, we feel compelled to draw your attention to an enormous new website on his work, with a vast array of links, news and commentary relating to his paradoxical contemplations on the nature of knowledge, memory and reality. Well done Martin Hadis, who obviously gave up having a life in order to string it all together. We feel JLB would have approved of this labyrinthine offering. related links:

Lars Holmgaard Christensen  Institution Institut for Kommunikation VR Media Lab  Aalborg Universitet Niels Jernes Vej 14: "In my project, 'Consuming Interactive Television' I focus on the TV-media and its new interactive forms which are not simply confined to new possibilities within the apparatus itself but rather involves the entire media ensemble which includes several programme formats on TV. We are, I think, facing some vital digital displacements in the media landscape and the new, digital infrastructure entails new patterns in the ways in which people watch TV. In convergent and cross media television environments I pursue an understanding of how television viewers engage in and interactively become co-producers of the on-screen content and flow. Therefore I have an increased focus on the changes in television consumption and the use of technology in the socio-cultural realm. The interactive turn in media culture suggests new patterns of interactivity and social interaction, so the naturalness of the 'domestic setting' as the most common viewing and socio-cultural context becomes in itself more complex. Mediated interaction with specific others in a mass distributed or mediated public forum (or marketplace), must in this sense also be taken into account as part of the television viewing experience."

Wired 11.11: BBC - Something Completely Different

Wired 11.11: START: "But innovation should cut some of the cost, and distribution could be nearly free. One small group of BBC execs has already floated an ingenious notion: P2P networks. Why spend money on racks of hardware and fat pipes when your most popular files will be shared by your viewers, who will burn them onto DVDs themselves and create their own copies to match demand? "
