What's Your Algorithmic Citizenship? | Citizen Ex
"Every time you connect to the internet, you pass through time, space, and law. Information is sent out from your computer all over the world, and sent back from there. This information is stored and tracked in multiple locations, and used to make decisions about you, and determine your rights. These decisions are made by people, companies, countries and machines, in many countries and legal jurisdictions. Citizen Ex shows you where those places are.

Your Algorithmic Citizenship is how you appear to the internet, as a collection of data extending across many nations, with a different citizenship and different rights in every place. One day perhaps we will all live like we do on the internet. Until then, there's Citizen Ex."


"Citizen Ex is a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, which shows you where on the web you really are, and what that means."]

Border Check
"What is Border Check?

Border Check (BC) is a browser extension that maps how your data moves across the internet’s infrastructure while you surf the web. It will show you through which countries and networks you surf to illustrate the physical and political realities of the internet’s infrastructure. using free software tools.
It maps the internet

Why is this relevant?

As one surfs the net, data packets are sent from the user’s computer to the target server. These data packets go on a journey hopping from server to server, potentially crossing multiple countries, until the packets reach the desired website. In each of the countries that are passed different laws and practices can apply to the data, influencing whether or not authorities can inspect, store or modify that data.


Border Check is a project by Roel Roscam Abbing. Programming by Lord Epsylon. Design by Bart Van Haren. BC was developed during Summer Sessions 2013 with with the support of V2_ Institute For The Unstable Media at Laboral Centro De Arte and the MP19 Openlab. It uses Python, OpenStreetMap, Leaflet and others."

The Spinning Beach Ball of Death
"The spinning wait cursor or spinning disc pointer — where your mouse pointer becomes the rotating color wheel or "spinning beach ball" seen above — generally indicates that your Mac® is engaged in a processor-intensive activity. For example, applying a Gaussian blur to an image in Adobe® Photoshop® is a processor-intensive activity.<br />
In most cases, the "beach ball" disappears within several seconds. However, there are cases when the "beach ball" spins protractedly, a condition colloquially known as "The Spinning Beach Ball of Death" (SBBOD).<br />
This FAQ — derived from a corresponding chapter in our Troubleshooting Mac OS X e-book— discusses solving common SBBOD problems, both generally and in Web browsers."

Daring Fireball: Masquerading as Mobile Safari to Get Websites to Serve HTML5 Video to Safari on Mac OS X
"whenever you run into a video player that claims to require Flash Player, invoke the Develop → User Agent → Mobile Safari 3.2.2 — iPad command. This reloads the current page, but with Safari claiming to be Mobile Safari running on the iPad. It does not change the way that Safari renders the page — i.e., it doesn’t make the desktop Safari render pages with zooming or layout differences to mimic the way Mobile Safari renders pages on the iPad. All it does is tell Safari to identify itself as Mobile Safari to the server. The result is that if the server does any sort of user-agent detection to figure out whether to serve video using Flash or HTML5, you’ll get the HTML5 version.

This trick makes video work in Safari on Mac OS X — with no Flash — from Flickr, Vimeo embeds, TED, MSNBC, and probably any other site that offers video that works on the iPad. This doesn’t work for all video, but it should work for any video that works on the iPad."

HTML5 Audio Safari Extension //
"I subscribe to a number of blogs that post audio files on a regular basis (like composer of Battlestar Galactica and The Walking Dead, Bear McCreary and a number of game music sites). Connor McKay’s YouTube5 Safari extension addresses most videos I encounter and Open in Google Chrome works for the rest but while video might demand attention audio is ambient. It doesn’t makes sense to keep a second browser open just for background noise but I couldn’t find a similar extension for audio. So I made one.

HTML5 Audio Safari extension replaces a number of Flash-based audio players with the HTML5 audio element."

Get 25 great Safari extensions | Browsers & Add-Ons | MacUser | Macworld
"If you haven't yet used Safari 5's new extensions feature, we've covered the ins and outs. But which extensions are worth installing and which are better left alone? In the process of writing that article, I tested innumerable extensions from Apple's Safari Extensions Gallery, the Safari Extensions blog, and around the Web, and came up with a list of 25 that I found to be especially useful—or, in some cases, informative or entertaining. (I haven't included extensions that, while useful, do things you can approximate using Safari's own features.) Chances are you'll find more than a few that will make Safari a better browser for you."

Flash is Broken on the Mac: The Flash Wall of Shame - OS X Daily
"If you’re looking for a sure-fire way to meltdown your Mac browser with some Flash, check out BB 2.0, the collaborative music project, where you’re supposed to play various YouTube videos to create your own music… fancy idea but I can’t play more than 8 videos at a time on my Mac without whatever browser becoming totally unresponsive, with Firefox fairing the worst and requiring a Forced Quit to return to sanity (for the record, I can play them all on a relatively weak Windows Netbook next to me, in any browser)."

State of the Internet Operating System Part Two: Handicapping the Internet Platform Wars - O'Reilly Radar
"This post provides a conceptual framework for thinking about the strategic and tactical landscape ahead. Once you understand that we're building an Internet Operating System, that some players have most of the pieces assembled, while others are just getting started, that some have a plausible shot at a "go it alone" strategy while others are going to have to partner, you can begin to see the possibilities for future alliances, mergers and acquisitions, and the technologies that each player has to acquire in order to strengthen their hand.

I'll hope in future to provide a more thorough drill-down into the strengths and weaknesses of each player. But for now, here's a summary chart that highlights some of the key components, and where I believe each of the major players is strongest.

[chart here]

The most significant takeaway is that the column marked "other" represents the richest set of capabilities. And that gives me hope."

BashFlash - A different kind of Flash blocker for Snow Leopard
"BashFlash lets you stop the Flash plug-in dead in its tracks, letting your new-fangled Mac cool down, use less power, and give you more time to do whatever it is you do. Probably blog or tweet or something. How does it work? On 64-bit Macs running Snow Leopard, Safari pushes the Flash plug-in off into its own process. BashFlash lives as a tiny menu app, monitoring this process and warns you (by turning red) if Flash is using a relatively significant amount of processor cycles. You can then use its menu to kill the Flash plug-in. That's hot. Any running Flash content is replaced with the broken plugin icon. Want to get Flash working again? Simply reload the page, or go to a new one. The next time Flash is needed, it'll come back to life."
