Project Open Spime
Da un Idea di Bruce Sterling. Un fantastico gadget per raccogliere dati ambientali e pubblicarli sul web in maniera affidabile (crittata,identificata, geolocata) prodotto a TORINO
We can call it a "Spime," which is a neologism for an imaginary object that is still speculative. A Spime also has a kind of person who makes it and uses it, and that kind of person is somebody called a "Wrangler." At the moment, you are end-using Gizmos. My thesis here, my prophesy to you, is that, pretty soon, you will be wrangling Spimes.http://www.toshare.it/spime/
The most important thing to know about Spimes is that they are precisely located in space and time. They have histories. They are recorded, tracked, inventoried, and always associated with a story.
Spimes have identities, they are protagonists of a documented process.
They are searchable, like Google. You can think of Spimes as being auto-Googling objects.
