DATA

It was quite a lot to take in.

#bigbangdata @somersethouse.

90% of the data in the world today was created in the last two years alone

*****

It was quite a lot to tweet.

It was quite a lot to Instagram.

It was quite a lot to Audioboom.

“I tried to capture my laughs which was really hard and got in the
way of enjoying life.” Giorgia Lupu and Stephanie Posavec.

At that point we gave up.

*****

Perhaps the most interesting bit was former National Surveillance Agency employee William Binney and his concerns about our apathy towards government surveillance.

“We haven’t had anything to say so far.”

As programmes he’d designed to report on enemy foreign states were

“Turned inward.”

Best exhibition of the year,

MEMORIES

“Memory exists only when it is recalled.”

******

#aliceanderson @explorewellcome.

“Everyday things that surround us, that will outlive us, that we often barely acknowledge.”

Everyday things mummified in copper wire.

Everyday memories preserved on social media.

Some words: copper, coppers, car, coke, guitar, canoe, glasses, iron, bike, speakers, TV, phone, laptop.

Etc.

They say:

“With this exhibition Alice Anderson shows that even those objects that ‘speak’ to us because of their familiarity are fundamentally altered by our experience of time. Anderson’s invitation to create a social sculpture will enable visitors to discover both the unstable nature of memory and its profoundly creative potent.”

We say:

“Really, really good.”

Cheers,

FRESH

Sometimes if you’re bored or in a bad way its good to get some fresh air.

Find like minded pooches with like minded people.

Where… if a handsome 8 year old staffy with anger management issues gets grizzly with having his bits sniffed.

No-one minds.

“How would you like it?”

See Iv got a past, mate. A history if you will.

See some folks, like, not too kind to the old staffies.

Like us to fight they do.

And we love to please so we do.

Its hard not to endlessly plug meetup.com in a london ents blog but it really is a marvel. I suppose we are plugging the internet and social media in general… not as a replacement for real life interaction with friends but as a way of finding new ones, new experiences and as a way of augmenting a life where you suddenly find something missing.

Love,

Harleyxx

global superstar

Today Colin and I went to a talk about blogging, via the london bloggers @meetup.

There were 4 speakers from @tiredoflondon (he was funny) @londonist @anniemole @domesticsluts. Hosted by @andybargey.

They seemed to confirm my move from blogger to wordpress was a smart one.

The former simply couldn’t contain my talents.

I probably shouldn’t nick peoples photos but some of my shine is bound to rub off on them, so can they really complain?

Here are my golden rules of blogging for pets…

1) Employ monkey with opposable thumbs to operate keys (@albiestar).

2) Be quite the man about town.

3) Have pertenant and pithy things to say about world events.

4) Don’t be a dog. That’s my thing.

5) Your wasting your time… you can’t compete.

Love,

Harleyxx
