Quick reviews - recommended books - (sent to various email lists - might
be of interest here?) -

Hello Avatar, Rise of the Networked Generation, B. Coleman, MIT, 2011

- Highly recommend this book which isn't the usual first-person
narrative, but carefully builds a theoretical structure for analyzing
the phenomenology of avatars, which we might be taking increasingly
for granted; the days of Sherry Turkle's Life on the Screen have been
replaced by life. I like the breadth and time-line of the book. I
picked up the copy at Eyebeam; it's one of the more useful recent
volumes of theory/sociology/philosophy of new media to emerge.

Noise Channels, Glitch and Error in Digital Culture, Peter Krapp,
Minnesota, 2011

 

Security Patterns 2009

Walk-through of work made by Michael Mandiberg during 2009. This collection of sculptures was made at Eyebeam.

I received a special request for an Internet Archive pipe. Starting from the advanced search page there was plenty to work with. The Advanced XML Search form returns whichever record fields you might want as XML, JSON, CSV, or an HTML table. The form exposes all of passed parameters in the search response URL, making it straightforward to rig a pipe to create a well formatted query.
