METAMODERNISM, THE INDIVIDUAL IS IN CHARGE
We live in a world of independence; whereby the individual is in charge.
Once told what to enjoy, what to buy, how to beat-out-the-Jones’, that leash no longer exists.
It is becoming the one with the loudest mouth wins. As that has always been the case with the Marketing and PR industry and now, the proverbial box has been opened and many mouths have emerged. Continue reading METAMODERNISM, THE INDIVIDUAL IS IN CHARGE

GESTURE CONTROL USED TO DRIVE CARS
Concept Vehicles, Your Living Room And Life
Microsoft MSFT +0.57% started something when it rolled out the Xbox with Kinect in 2010. The optical sensors in Kinect allowed players to use gesture to control and play video games. Now, a long (or short depending on how you look at it) six years after that tech hit the gaming world, gesture is making its way into other markets, including your home, cars and other everyday life activities.

From memes to architecture, we have the metamodernism forefathers to thank, such as Kerouac and Nabokov and a few others… the Beats planted the seed and let that tree grow into what is known, as Metamodern Literature.

A German professor has confirmed what skeptics from Britain to the US have long suspected: that NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies has largely invented “global warming” by tampering with the raw temperature data records.
Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.
