Is anybody else following iPhonegate? You know, the story about the gadget blog who was showing off photos and video last week of a top secret, next-generation iPhone that was found lost in a bar and later outed the poor guy who lost it while simultaneously admitting they’d bought it? In case you were unaware and are interested, the editor of the blog got his house raided and computers confiscated by the police. The ordeal opened up a big debate over whether or not bloggers are covered by California’s Shield Laws which say police can’t take data of any kind that was prepared in the news gathering process. After a brief pause, it looks like the case is moving right along again.
So what’s there to do today?
If you’re near campus between 2-4 p.m., there’s a student art reception for Jason Reid’s “Nanobodies” exhibit at the Anne Kittrell Art Gallery in the union.
Nanobodies is a video installation that portrays human dependancy on technology. It employs animated and still imagery as motifs that describe the idea of an alternate future in which there is no clear distinction between human biology and technology.
If you can’t make it, the gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday.
For tonight, how about a dance party at FIX with DJ Amritaji?
Ah, I get it. You’re saving it for the NAMAs tomorrow night, aren’t you? Respect.
