Flash on the Beach 2007

I just got back from Flash on the Beach 07; A Flash conference in Brighton. It would be an impossible task so sum up what a fantastic 3 days it turned out to be, suffice to say the speaker line-up was near perfect, and I left feeling inspired to play more, create more and dig out some of those old ideas from the back of my hard drive and see where they take me.

I have just been checking out Asual’s SWFAddress.

If you haven’t come across it yet, SWF Address is a tool for deep linking in Flash. It is a JavaScript based code which will set hash (anchor) link path from your Flash content.

Of course, having surveillance cameras all over the place is acceptable and right – the authorities need to see us buying carrots and walking the dog. However it appears that soon, if we wish to take a photograph of our beautiful planet or indeed anything that exists in a public space – we will be committing an offence.

Thankfully, you can do something to stop this. There isn’t yet a petition to make the government admit some responsibility for several hundred thousand dead Iraqi civilians, however there is one which may grant you use of a camera. Read : UK Photography Ban »

Matt Johnsons Moleskin page on Dr Beaurieux

During my research for Experiments in the Revival of Organisms, my tutor Matt Johnson handed me a newspaper clipping which he had saved concerning an experiment conducted by Dr Beaurieux in 1905, in which he quite reliably proved that a severed head (That of convicted murderer Languille) remains conscious and alert for some time after being separated from the body.
