Social Media, Public Space

This really interesting post; Tahrir Square: Social Media, Public Space (on Design Observer), looks at the parallel role of virtual and physical space in recent events in the Middle East. With #Jan25, #Bahrain and the like ‘trending’ on twitter, (not to mention the implication of Wikileaks earlier in the story), there’s much talk of this being a ‘communication’ revolution, but the article contextualises this nicely alongside some analysis of shared public spaces.


Really interesting idea continuing from The National Theatre. A production is simultaneously broadcast around the world, there’s one on 17th March directed by Danny Boyle. It will be on in Glasgow and The Hague so it will be like a time portal (or something) between everyone who is watching, ooooo. But also I am keen to see how it feels to be in a cinema and seeing a play, will seeing different camera view etc change how you absorb the play? For the better?

It’s certainly a hybrid and i’m intrigued.
