Dear Tracey, 

I was just taking a look at your website and came across your project
http://www.byte-time.net/art/placemaps.html  as well as ³Estuarine Flows,²
³Wallmap,² and ³Memorymap² which all seem to use geo-location. It would be
interesting to hear about your process a bit.  You must be using video
camera technology that uses its built in locative tools to locate and mark
your place.  The software Aurasma I am not familiar with but my last
guest, Jason Bernagozzi from Signal Culture, told me about the software
program Layar that seems to be commercially purposed. Jason also showed me
Signal Culture resident Kristin Lucas¹ project ³Garage Sale in the Sky.²
Here is the link in case our subscribes are interested.

Your desire to work in open software is one that I know that Nick Knouf
and Claudia Pederson share.  Their project Art for Spooks
http://art-for-spooks.org/#app  is dedicated to developing and using open
source software.   They both were guests on ­empyre in December.  Tim
Murray and I saw the piece at the Wellesley College Art Museum just before
the holiday where it was exhibited in the faculty exhibition.

Hope you will take the time over the next two days to tell us more about
the Ada Initiative and ADA CAMP  and the new cooperative open source
software tool your are creating collaboratively.

Well this post was devoted to primarily tools.  Like you conceptual ideas
also drive my practice and interests.  I know that doesn¹t make sense this
month especially given the fact that we are dedicating the entire month on
­empyre to tools and technologies but in all of the posts so far
theoretical, social, political implications seem to be  embedded into all
we do. More on that next post.

So I will sign out just for now also for the sake of writing a TLDR post.
Thanks. Renate
