JUKEBOX_CuratingYouTube.net_session 3

As a part of the series Jukebox, we had a chance to host CuratingYouTube.net (CYT) that explores Web 2.0 phenomena on example of YouTube. Using special curatorial grid as a tool for selection, CYT presented topic ‘StreetSounds’ mixing variety of street musicians, road-movies and political protests.

Results will be packed on our offline-server in the form of a short video that shows principle beside CYT but also serves as a tutorial for future home-use.

Second Jukebox session brought interesting discussion about anonymous user privileges inside our Kiosk-Cloud.

After building carefully file management structure, one wrong ‘delete-push’ erase entire jukebox folder. After initial shock we uploaded again fresh music and played it even louder but decided to change somehow privileges for the external user.

On the other hand, vulnerability of open-networks made us thinking about solutions beyond censorship and exclusion.

Join us Wednesdays after 5pm for another Jukebox session.

JUKEBOX_play your music in public_session 1

Do you remember the old school Jukebox that gave the unique opportunity to play your favourite songs in hotels, clubs and video arcades. Nowadays, Jukeboxes lost the battle with the over-individualized music services and devices.

But what would happen if we would place Jukebox principle in public space and anybody could play its song from the mobile device using K67_Urban Router’s offline-cloud?

Yesterday, we invited random pedestrians to contribute with top song(s) of the day, which became part of a playlist downloadable only at the kiosk.

JUKEBOX is completely run by Raspberry-Pi (credit-card sized Linux computer, $25)

Come and pick-up some music !
