MIT Conducts Twitter Research

Twitter awarded $10 million to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for research exploring the ways people collaborate through social networks.

University researchers will conduct a five year study on content present primarily on Twitter and build communication tools for efficient retrieval of the most viral information.

The new Laboratory of Social Machines will access data from Gnip, the company’s storage portal for historic tweets.

“Twitter is seizing the opportunity to go deeper into research to understand the role Twitter and other platforms play in the way people communicate, the effect that rapid and fluid communication can have and apply those findings to complex societal issues,” said chief executive Dick Costolo in a statement.

Company representatives confirmed investment into academic research would be a priority going forward.

Google Acquires Firebase

Google confirmed the acquisition of Firebase, a company specializing in synchronized mobile and web-based apps.

Firebase employees will join Google’s cloud-computing team. They will continue to offer a service for apps running on Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android mobile operating systems.

The acquisition is part of Google’s strategy to promote services to independent developers. Google seeks to maintain the widest selection of programmers for developing apps on its mobile devices.

Buy Art with Bitcoin on Cointemporary

Buy Art with Bitcoin on Cointemporary

 

Painters Valentin Ruhry and Andy Boot launched Cointemporary in May, an online marketplace for purchasing creations using Bitcoin. The company features a new piece of art each week, and once it’s sold the artist has the option of receiving pay through traditional currency or Bitcoin. However, since the company wants to push the trend of digital currency, it gives the artists a larger percentage of the sale if they select Bitcoin as their payment option.

 

Purchased art gets shipped to buyers through Viennese company Kunsttrans-which also accepts Bitcoin.

 

The digital currency is starting to appear in a variety of styles in art. For example, the popular works of San Francisco-based artist Tom Loughlin and New York’s Jenna Lash often include Bitcoin as a creative theme. French artist Youl recently sold a painting entitled “The Last Bitcoin Supper” on eBay for $2,900.

 

Companies Art4Bit, BitPremier, and Silicon Valley Contemporary also use Bitcoin as a payment method. Paddle8 is considering using it as an option as well.

 

Cointemporary’s goal is to provide a “broader global visual context free from the hegemonic monetary system in which contemporary art is embedded.” The platform offers a “new form of autonomy in the global monetary system.”…

Facebook Launches ‘Rooms’ App

Facebook Launches ‘Rooms’ App

Facebook announced ‘Rooms’, a new mobile-based app that creates a classic chat room environment in which users can create private chat boards for sharing messages, photos, important links and more.

The app will not require users to disclose any private, personal information about themselves like real names and geographic location; Facebook aims to let users “break away from the constraints of our everyday selves” and connect with uses with similar interests.  

“One of the magical things about the early days of the web was connecting to people who you would never encounter otherwise in your daily life,” reads an official Facebook blog post. “Forums, message boards and chartrooms were meeting places for people who didn’t necessarily share geographies or social connections, but had something in common.”

“One of the things our team loves most about the internet is its potential to let us be whoever we want to be. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you like or how old you are-all of us are the same size and shape online,” the post reads. “That’s why in Rooms you can be ‘Wonder Woman’-or whatever name makes you feel most comfortable and proud.”

The New York Times first reported on the new app on Oct. 7. The source confirmed project development would be led by Josh Miller-founder of the recently acquired start-up, Branch.

This Avengers 2 Pinocchio Mash-Up Is Even Better Than You Would Have Guessed

5 Alien Species The New Star Trek Movie Should Consider Including


What makes a great Star Trek villain? That's easy. It's always been about character. They're never one-dimensional. (Unless you count Harry Mudd, played more for comic relief than anything else.) They're sympathetic. The same goes for pegging a great Star Trek alien. The curious case of the Star Trek universe is that strange as they may appear, the aliens featured are not always evil, or particularly threatening. Some aliens from the original series were great for an episode, but how could you expand it to something along the lines of Khan? We're talking Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan ...

Pitt made the comments to The Associated Press during his promotional tour for Fury, the World War II drama that has come in for some criticism because of its gruesome scenes. While on the red carpet for the film's world premiere on Wednesday, Pitt admitted that he wouldn't have a problem with Maddox watching the film because, " ...

John Carter Cost Even More Money To Make Than We Thought


John Carter is widely regarded as one of the biggest cinematic flops of recent years. It was previously believed that it lost Disney just under $300 million, but this figure has just increased after it was revealed that the Disney blockbuster actually cost Walt Disney Company $306.6 million to make. Disney had previously withheld the true cost of John Carter, with many experts having previously suggested that its production value was in the $250 million range. The fact that it actually eclipsed this sum by $56.6 million means that Disney's losses on the film are even more substantial than previously estimated. According to Forbes, ...

Lex Luthor Probably Won't Be In Just Batman V Superman


When the Spider-Man universe flirted with the idea of a villainous team named the Sinister Six, the movie drew on enemies introduced in the movies. (Electro, the Green Goblin and the Rhino were the core examples.) With DC eyeing a similar Suicide Squad film, you would think it would follow suit... only, General Zod's "unavailable" (read: dead) and there haven't been any other major villains in this DC cinematic universe. Except one. And he might increase his role in a major way. Jesse Eisenberg is about to introduce the classic villain Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn ...
