When radio tries to be the internet…Net News.
Two months ago, MOMA Poet Laureate Kenneth Goldsmith launched an insane ambitious project wherein he asked contributors to print out the entire web. Said he:
If you printed the internet, reading it would take 57,000 years, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week non-stop and if you read it for 10 minutes a night before bed, it would take 8,219,088 years. We begin on July 26th.
Ten tonnes of printed material is now on show at an art gallery in Mexico City.

When you browse the web on your O2 mobile, they send your mobile number to every site you visit.

There are speculative stories about O2 in the UK, and the transmission of customers’ numbers while they are browsing the internet. This issue does not affect O2’s customers in Ireland. We do not transmit customers’ numbers when they are using our internet services. Our service is completely independent of the UK’s.
