I was cheering from the sideline as Johannes Klingebiel received a much-deserved round of Internet applause for his visualization of hype. The scale shows the many different methods used to promote new technologies. In our small space for personal projects, Johannes shares frequent updates on the visualization and the associated undertaking. Reply if you’d like to know more.
Laurel Schwulst is a gift to the internet. Over the years, I have shared many of her projects, including HTML Energy, The Life and Death of an Internet Onion, and How to Build a Bird Kite. Therefore, I was happy to learn that she is writing more because she is a rare Internet poet who imagines “social media as a catalogue of possible immersions” and writes a PSA for herself which starts like this: “You are here, on this social media platform. It’s actually a sandy beach.”
