The internet and digital data.

February 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

The internet is now the biggest open source to everyone world-wide and more and more data bases are open to for everyone to use. However people have now started to play around with these data bases and create new programs called mash-ups or multi-platform data distribution. For example The wilderness downtown by Chris milk created an interactive film that would by pulled all sort of bits in from the internet from different data bases about our selves. i find nice to know that i exist in the internet because it’s big but also I find it kind of scary because all these detail about our lives can be pulled up and searched freely by anyone. http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com/index.html

The internet was built as a large data base but now i can’t help thinking who can get hold of different data and whether its a good think that so much data and information can now be stored on the web.
