More > the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

“Het was net als met het voetbal. De Hollanders waren ontzettend goed, maar de Brazilianen waren net iets verrassender en behendiger”, zo wordt in de Braziliaanse schoolboeken de strijd... More > tussen de Hollanders en de (Braziliaanse) Portugezen (1644 – 1654) wel getypeerd. Van 1630 - 1654 had de West-Indische Compagnie een groot deel van het Noordoosten van Brazilië in bezit. In 1644 kwamen de Portugese kolonisten tegen de Hollanders in opstand. In 1645 werd in de Nederlanden een grote 'secoursvloot' opgetuigd om de opstand te keren. Een van de opvarenden was de Franse avonturier/schrijver Pierre Moreau, die meeging als secretaris van een van de leden van de toen nieuw benoemde Hoge Raad in Recife. Dit boek uit 1651 bevat zijn verslag. Het beschrijft de corruptie onder de Hollanders, de slavernij, het verraad, maar ook de godsdienstvrijheid en het vernuft van de Hollandse zeelui. Het vertelt ook van de grote aspiraties van de Hollanders in de 17e eeuw, maar die uiteindelijk schipbreuk leden.< Less
