Welcome to the website.

Here's a presentation which I gave recently at a [http://www.futurict.ethz.ch/FuturICT FuturICT] meeting about art-science as an interdisciplinary activity, and why I like to do it. (Note: updated version [http://www.mo-seph.com/presentations/art-science here])
I found this paper by Born and Barry inspiring while putting this together: [http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/17530351003617610 ART-SCIENCE: From public understanding to public experiment] (thanks [http://www.owengreen.net owen] and [http://sarahroberts.net/ sarah])
A while back I built a controller for doing home Sous Vide (write up to come...). It controls a hotplate under a pan of water and uses a digital temperature sensor to attempt to maintain a constant, precise temperature. I hacked together a simple control system, and found that it worked very badly for controlling a system with so much lag. I tried a bit of tweaking, but it was still not very good - a tendency to overshoot massively, and take a long time to cool down.
I often find that I want to do more advanced queries of airports/cities than search engines allow, e.g. find me large cities which I can fly to from both these places and not have to travel more than 50km at the end. I'm using this as an excuse to learn:
I just came across a review of some of my albums online: [http://freealbums.blogsome.com/2011/01/16/mo-seph-three-albums/]. Always nice to have a good review.
Also a reminder of how much difference CC licensing makes. Because of this, the good folks at [http://www.blacklanternmusic.com Black Lantern] knew they could put my work up on the [http://freemusicarchive.org/music/mo-seph/ Free Music Archive]. As a result of that, I've had a couple of reviews, and had music re-used in some videos, and on websites. Great exposure!
Short version: how to view the geolocated molecules:
* install the Layar browser
* be in Cambridge
* look for the "cambridgemolecules" or "Cambridge Molecules" layer
This is how I setup the backend for the geolocated molecules, using Hoppala to provide hosting and editing for a Layar layer. Layar indexes Points of Interest (POIs) with associated information and URIs. These can then be picked up by the Layar browser on a mobile device, in order to create the 3D overlay on reality. However, Layar doesn't host the files itself; one option is to use Hoppala, which both hosts and allows for easy editing of POIs and metadata.
