Blogosphere Browser

July 14, 2006

The subject of the pre-diploma project was “internet in a museum”. Every student had to develop a concept of an installation that helps the visitor to understand the internet.

My idea was a touchscreen based blogosphere browser. It should show the complexity, the “networkedness” of the blogosphere. On the other hand it should be a tool to explore the blogosphere completely off the browser.

BlogosphereBrowser Presentation:

Please visit the project website for a complete description of the project (German only).

Downloads:

dummy_web.zip The zip-file contains application & sourcecode.

How to use blogosphereBrowser:
Think of your cursor to be a finger. Click and drag your mouse simulate touching the screen. As we have one mouse only, the zooming and paning works with z & drag; space & drag.
