Last week here in Berlin the Transmediale Festival took place – and it was great. However, the icing on the cake is to be attributed entirely to Berlin’s own FAT Labs art activism group (Free Art & Technology), who not only had an intriguing stall at the festival itself (titled ‘Fuck Google‘), but also put on a beautiful spectacle chasing the Google Street View car, which happened to criss-cross town at the very same time.
In brilliant live Twitter-report style, everyone could learn how the Google car was being chased – and later, FAT Labs somehow managed to get at GPS tracker attached to the Google car, so that one could track the Googlsters’ trip around the city. Many Germans took the opportunity to get their 15 minutes of fame (or whatever you call the middle finger message) – see the video here:
