    • Hidden Lives - The Untold Story of Urban Refugees - St Pancras International


      from Panos Pictures Added 682 3 5

      A unique exhibition of images in the beautiful, bustling setting of St Pancras International station, London. Over half the world’s refugees now live in large towns and cities where they are confronted by a unique set of challenges. The traditional image of life in tented, sprawling camps no longer tells the full refugee story. As urbanisation reshapes much of the world, refugees too are increasingly moving to large towns and cities. In addition, urban areas are rapidly expanding, making them increasingly vulnerable to man-made and natural disasters. With this explosive growth come new types of risks, vulnerabilities and potential humanitarian crises. The classic picture of a refugee in a camp is changing. Refugees and displaced people move to the city in the hope of finding a sense of community, safety and economic independence. However, in reality, what many actually find are harsh living conditions, lack of security and poverty. Working with the International Rescue Committee and the European Commission’s humanitarian aid and civil protection department ECHO, Panos Pictures photographer Andrew McConnell has spent many months documenting this new reality in eight cities across four continents. Through images, refugee testimonies, and video, the resulting body of work presents a unique insight into the lives of urban refugees today and challenges the commonly held stereotypes. From Somali refugees in Nairobi to Syrian refugees in north Jordan, and from Burmese refugees in Kuala Lumpur to Afghan refugees in New York, the story of where people flee when all is lost is changing...

      • Arduino IRC Bot using python


        from bhelx Added 4,922 6 5

        Sorry for the blurriness! Be patient. This is a demonstration of a script I wrote using python which acts as a bridge between an IRC channel and your serial port (in this case, the arduino). In this scenario, I have the arduino set up with an led and a potentiometer. The bot software has signed on using the nick 'arduino' and I am getting my friend 'redguts' to send it messages all the way from Houston. The bot listens to the entire room's conversation but it doesn't respond until you address it by it's name, in this case, 'arduino: xxmssgxx'. It then reads the command and responds accordingly. You could also set it up to speak at will. For instance, if you programmed your arduino to detect when a certain event happens, say the temp in the room goes above a certain value, it can tell the IRC Channel without being queried. Or even set up private chats. I am not releasing the source this week but you can send me a private message if you are desperate and have python/arduino skills. ** Finally, get the code here http://blog.datasingularity.com/?p=148 **

        • A Day in QuakeNet


          from QuakeNet Added 46.3K 72 5

          QuakeNet is the largest internet relay chat (IRC) Network in the world, this is an attempt to demonstrate the activity on the network (it looks much better full screen!). This is one day of activity, 24 hours, midnight to midnight in UTC, on the QuakeNet IRC network summarised into a 12 minute data visualisation. Each dot represents a new user connecting to the network, there are some 400 new connections per minute on average in this visualisation. Users are linked by joining shared channels. When a new user joins a shared channel it is joined by a line with all other users in the channel already that have had activity within the last 5 minutes. In effect, this shows real time communications between the users of QuakeNet over a single day. All data was collected strictly anonymously at a high level. The data snapshots were collected via a network service that already stores connection data in memory, anonymous network data dumps (purely stating 'this user is new' information) were collected at a regular interval for a 24 hour period. These data blocks were then pre-processed using one off Python scripts into a usable cohesive time-line of connections, and the users resolved to their geographic locations. The final visualisation was produced using processing over several hours (the original source is above 1080p) using an OpenGL renderer. The background map is a re-aligned and tweaked world map from the NASA blue marble project. If you have any comments or questions you can find me in #meeb on irc.quakenet.org
