people will believe what the media tells them they believe."
Chmielecki: Philosophy and Cognitive Sciences
My thesis is that "information" is
— epistemologically — a realist category:
what I call information is something "out there"
in the objective reality, not just a useful term of
art residing in the investigator's mind only. It has
no mass, energy, or spatial extension, it cannot be
seen, touched, or smelled. Nevertheless it is a distinct,
made this drawing robot that takes information that
people give it over the web and draws it out for them.
The drawing implement is a sumi brush that is hacked
together to connect to a reservoir above and to the
right of the robot. Artpainter stands for adaptive resonance
theory painter, also known as the painting machine.
This device takes user input through a website and local
tablet pc's, which it then "learns" through
system of neural networks. The machine then improvises
using what it has learnt. LINK

Etimology in the MIDDLE of
the MEDIA (in medias res)
New media refers to new forms of human and
media communication that have been transformed by the creative
use of technology to fulfil the same basic social need to
interact and transact.
