Gibson + French Video Quiz

Checking Technorati today, I found this passage from the new Gibson novel Pattern Recognition:

Pollard is among a cult-like group of Internet obsessives that strives to find meaning and patterns within a mysterious collection of video moments, merely called „the footage,“ let loose onto the Internet by an unknown source. Her hobby and work collide when a megalomaniac client hires her to track down whoever is behind the footage.

It reminded me a lot of our french KAYWA Bloggers quiz:
Sandrine
Jean-Sébastien
Moland

GPS powered Moblogs

At CeBIT last week, I was a bit disappointed that no one in Europe proposes for the near future camera phones which make pictures with GPS data. Already last year in Tokyo, Joi took a photo of me, which had this feature.

So why does Nokia have a phone which has GPS and makes photos, but not both together? Why does Siemens show Assisted-GPS phones, but if you ask, they tell you it is not available in the near future.
Frustrating…

Anyway, here is Eyebeam’s post GeoSnaps! which points to GeoSnapper and to Mie.
