Software Studies App for iPhone and Android phones

The Software Studies Initiative just released its new iPhone and Android application.

Download from:

The apps were developed by Cicero Silva (Software Studies Brazil) using HTML 5 and universo platform. They allow you to access blog, Twitter, Flickr galleries, and YouTube channel from a single screen on your mobile device - so you can keep us with our new visualizations, cultural analytics projects, and publications.

Remix and Cultural Analytics: Minima Moralia Redux

Visualization of Minima Moralia, aphorism 6 (Click image to view large version)

Minima Moralia Redux:!/p/about.html

Minima Moralia Redux is a selective remix by Eduardo Navas of Theodor Adorno’s Minima Moralia. Starting on October 16, 2011, an entry a week will be rewritten until the 153 aphorisms of Minima Moralia become part of the blog.

Theodor Adorno’s aphorisms are carefully analyzed and reinterpreted in order to explore the principles of the selective remix, often found in music and video. The selective remix consists of adding to or subtracting material from a pre-existing source.

Minima Moralia Redux is the result of a long term post-doctoral analysis in cultural analytics performed for The Department of Information Science and Media Studies at the University of Bergen, Norway, in collaboration with Software Studies Lab at the University of California, San Diego.

Minima Moralia Redux is part of the Blog Remixes:
