Space Oddity

Space Oddity

Ground control to major Tom
Ground control to major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
(Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
(Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you

This is ground control to major Tom, you’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is major Tom to ground control, I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world
Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles, I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
Ground control to major Tom, your circuits dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you hear me, major Tom?
Can you…
Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue and there’s nothing I can do

David Bowie (1969)

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 47,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Internet in Society: Empowering or Censoring Citizens?

Esta animação, realizada para a RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), baseia-se numa palestra de Evgeny Morozov realizada em 2009 sobre os efeitos políticos da Internet. Morozov refere os usos da tecnologia digital e o modo como pode ou não ser instrumento de emancipação e de mudança política. À visão ciber-utópica da internet como instrumento revolucionário de defesa da democracia e dos direitos humanos, Morozov contrapõe os seus usos como instrumento de controlo e de entretenimento. MP
