knowbotic research’s Minds of Concern::Breaking News consists of a gallery installation, web interface, and news-tickers. The project web site contains a Minds of Concern list of groups, movements, and non-governmental associations (NGOs) that have a global presence on the Internet. By clicking a name, visitors trigger a set of network processes that investigate the security conditions of a group’s server. The results are made available on a news-ticker that literally “visualizes” the strength or vulnerability of a server and strobe lights and sounds correspondingly vary in intensity in the gallery installation.
