I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

A map/urban environment exploration site from San Francsisco that aims to interlink images and scenes from the city with live data such as bus arrivals has created a surreal and yet strangely engrossing Flash site. Check it out.

"This project is an investigation into the interplay of data, interactivity and narrative in an urban environment. It takes as its focus the corner of 16th and Mission Streets in San Francisco.

Live data from the NextBus system, which tracks realtime bus schedules in San Francisco and other cities, is read into this interface every thirty seconds. The size of the orange and green arrows indicates how long it will be before the next bus arrives at the two stations visible on the map. When new data is received, the arrows change size, and a deep tone is heard."
