Off to Barcelona, leaving you with some nice links

I’m taking a short break and will spend some days in Barcelona. I’d like to leave you with a few links to some of my favorite blogs:

Unit StructuresI’ve been reading “Fred Stutzman’s thoughts about information, social networks and technology” for a while now and I was kind of surprised when I found out he was in a panel discussion right after our Sofware Studies panel at HASTACII.

serial consign – on research and design by Greg. J. Smith. One of my primary resources for design projects with a theoretical approach and vice versa.

Kenspeckle.net, a blog by Lauren Sperber, is meant to be “a humorous, hyperlinked look at language, internet culture, and anything conspicuous.”

Datamob

Datamob is a project by Lauren Sperber and Sean Flannagan:

Datamob aims to show, in a very simple way, how public data sources are being used. Our listings emphasize the connection between data posted by governments and public institutions and the interfaces people are building to explore that data.

Enjoy!
