Stalking Spotify,

Cosas que me entretienen:
1. Sucumbir al capitalismo y volver a cargar mi cuenta de Spotify aunque ella es la culpable de que Grooveshark y otras music free ads murieran (o yo le hecho la culpa) convenciéndome de que quiero ver como funciona el update del algoritmo que recomienda música (really, but not really)
2. Darme cuenta que (al menos en el cel) de alguna forma Spotify usa mi cuenta de Facebook que le dice soy de México pero no estoy ahí ergo, este cree que ando en la vacación y ya use más de 14 días en el extranjero así que o pago premium o nada
3. Pelearme por horas con mi celular tratando de entrar usando Tor (dándome cuenta que Tor no tiene México como país de opción vpn)
4. En un rage attack crear una cuenta falsa con 10minute mail y entrar como usuario British convenciéndome de que eso me permite ver las diferencias de contenido, ads publicitarios, etc.
5. Recordar días después tontamente que puedo simplemente usar vpn de México en mi lap y entrar como si nada (duh.)
6. Notar que la app de Spotify para lap, que en el cel no me dejo entrar en la compu le da igual porque (YOLO) igual usa Facebook y si de alguna manera ya entré, le vale la vida lo demás
7. Sonreír por la obvia diferencia de listas de contenido (UK me recomienda listas to revise *estudiar en British porque es fecha de entregas* o get over rainy days (LOL) y México desde la entrada es Latino (sin deficiencias por falta de sol jaja) por lo que me recomienda accordingly XD
—esperar pacientemente y por 1ra vez en la vida la publicidad——
8. La publicidad weirdly está en British con ads de: por 30min free of ads ve el siguiente video (¿esa será opción global o solo de aquí?)
9. Pensar que otros artistas o playlist puedo probar para ver que cuenta me deja entrar y que cuenta no (ahora que tengo lap-Mex/cel- UK)
10. Escribir un post largo, incoherente e innecesario en vez de leer y corregir el draft de digital borders en el que se supone estoy trabajando
11. Convencerme de que todo este choro eterno puedo incluirlo de alguna manera (aún no conocida por el hombre) como culture digital border y en realidad no estaba perdiendo el tiempo (aunque sí…)
12. Enjuage y Repita.

theXifer.net – Just a Web Based EXIF Editor for Local, Cloud, Flickr, Bootstrap

theXifer.net – Just a Web Based EXIF Editor for Local, Cloud, Flickr, Bootstrap:

Webpage to modify images metadata – EXIF for 360 pictures (Facebook style)

Exif – Exchangeable Image File Format

Metadata – Make: RICOH Model: RICOH THETAS

Image aspect ratio should be 2:1 avoid photoshoping close to corners

Largest upload – 6000×3000 pixels (18 Mega pixels)

Otherwise look for a EXIF app or do comand as follow:

Using exiftool (Technical)

The most powerful and flexible Exif editor, especially for batch processing of images, is the command-line tool, exiftool.

If you are interested in using exiftool to manually tag 360 photos, install it on your machine. Then, simply use the following terminal command to insert the appropriate metadata:

  • exiftool -Make=“camera_make” -Model=“camera_model” photo.jpg
  • # replace ‘camera_make’ and ‘camera_model’ with the appropriate values
  • # ‘photo.jpg’ is the photo you want to tag

For example, if you’re on a Mac and you want to inject metadata for a Ricoh Theta S into a file called “bestphoto.jpg” on your Desktop, you would use the following command:

  • exiftool -Make=“RICOH” -Model=“RICOH THETA S” ~/Desktop/bestphoto.jpg

To remove all Exif from a given file called “photo.jpg” (remember to re-inject camera Make and Model before you upload):

  • exiftool -all= photo.jpg

To copy all Exif from one file (“source.jpg”) to another (“dest.jpg”):

  • exiftool -TagsFromFile source.jpg “-all:all>all:all” dest.jpg

Information Age VS Experience Age (Discussion)

So, one of my ex-peers from the master (who is doing great visual work like this one) recently tweeted this article and I quite liked the topic and had some comments on which I will now use verbiage (which is sort of my thing XD) to discuss down below…

Full article discussed here

The article talks about how we are coming to the end of the Information Age in which accumulation of information was the main goal of creating a profile, sort of an archive of all the things you did as a representation of who you are (Facebook) and the realization that in the Experience age maybe the collection of all your memories is not who you are anymore…

Or in their more articulated words:

“You are not your profile

To illustrate how this is playing out, think of Facebook and Snapchat.

Facebook is an Information Age native. Along with other social networks of its generation, Facebook was built on a principle of the desktop era —  accumulation.

Accumulation manifests in a digital profile where my identity is the sum of all the information I’ve saved —  text, photos, videos, web pages. (Evan Spiegel explored this first in a 2015 YouTube video titled What is Snapchat?). In the Information Age we represented ourselves with this digital profile.

But mobile has changed how we view digital identity. With a connected camera televising our life in-the-moment, accumulated information takes a back seat to continual self-expression. The “virtual self” is becoming less evident. I may be the result of everything I’ve done, but I’m not the accumulation of it. Snapchat is native to this new reality.

You are not a profile. You are simply you.

Many people think Snapchat is all about secrecy, but the real innovation of Snapchat’s ephemeral messages isn’t that they self-destruct. It’s that they force us to break the accumulation habit we brought over from desktop computing. The result is that the profile is no longer the center of the social universe. In the Experience Age you are not a profile. You are simply you.”

(Mike Wadhera, 2016)

I can clearly see the end of this accumulation era on facebook’s lack of new content to represent who you are, we no longer (at least in my case) go to others people’s wall to “see their profile” and get and idea of who they are rather than at the beginning of adding someone as a friend (and that’s just to see friends in common), we now tend to share funny videos and interesting content that we find relevant or feel angered by (I believe this content also shares a part of who we are but it is not as distinguishable as to which part reflects or aligns to our personality and which is reflecting our discomfort, are we sharing because we believe in the message? or are we sharing a satirical point of view? or just because?)

Another proof is Facebook’s own remember this memory from X years ago and remember this status update (both things that maybe you don’t do anymore or just sporadically but Facebook is still trying to remind you with the aim to get you to talk and build on that past memory)

So…For accumulation -> Identity = all the things I have ever done -> who I am
whereas Snapchat -> Identity = continual self-expression

But I’m not sure I get the idea of the Experience Age, because I understand that Snapchat is changing narrative into a visual perspective but is it the article then using Experience in the sense we experience the narrative different from going from text to image? or experience in the way we relate to technology and archiving? 

The experience stack.

At the bottom is Layer 0, the real world. The full stack is in service of capturing and communicating real-world moments. Reality is its foundation.

Moving on I’m also struggling with the experience stack and having a real life moment in “real-world” comparison with a “online and offline identity” mentioned later, because I believe there is no longer an online and offline identity, they are merged and co-evolve just like we do with technology (Posthuman) our identities are converged by how we use technology but also on how we change that technology so I’m gonna go with the assumption that experience is on how we interact with technology…

Enough for now, I don’t think It makes much sense now but remember this is just verbiage to take thoughts out of my head.

Por su atención, gracias.
