BBC World Service - Click, dConstruct Conference
This episode of Click on the BBC World Service does a great job of distilling some of the ideas and themes from this year’s dConstruct.
Two years ago dConstruct’s theme was “Playing with the Future”. Last year it was “Communicating with Machines”. This year’s theme is “Living with the Network”. Click interviews artists, writers, hackers and coders about surveillance, connected devices, big data, and whether the ideals of the internet have been too far corrupted for them ever to be preserved.

Thoughtful, mind-expanding, brain-blowing stuff.

Teenage Diaries Revisited
Fascinating fodder for Huffduffer:
Beginning in 1996, Radio Diaries gave tape recorders to teenagers around the country to create audio diaries about their lives. NPR’s All Things Considered aired intimate portraits of five of these teens: Amanda, Juan, Frankie, Josh and Melissa. They’re now in their 30s. Over this past year, the same group has been recording new stories about where life has led them for our series, Teenage Diaries Revisited.

- Browsers That Say They Support HTML5 Audio But Actually Don’t Support HTML5 Audio
