Mediamatic.net will give away all its books. They cancel their library in protest to skimpy Dutch art funding policy.
All members of the mediamatic community (and other book lovers) can pick up their favorite books for free. You just have to publish the ownership on your profile. And promise that you will always honor a lending request from an other community member. Et voilá, a distributed library. First come, first serve. They have a library with thousands of books, magazines and multimedia.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
