Da Vinci Automata in ‘Fundamentals of the Network Neutrality Debates’

Previously I mentioned Tayfun Uslu’s Master’s thesis where he mentioned this blog. Here are the relevant excerpt from Tayfun Uslu’s Master’s Project Thesis, Fundamentals of the Network Neutrality Debates, where he uses DaVinci Automata as an example of autonomy in network information economy.

Davinci Automata* blog is an example of how the Networked Information economy increases individuals’ autonomy. Davinci Automata is a blog on he Clockpunk genre of Science Fiction. It is designed for a segment of the population that is interested in this genre; thus it makes diverse information available to individuals. The owner has the open source tools to customize he blog as he wishes. The readers get turned into users by leaving comments or even submitting their work to be posted in this blog.

Clocks Galore!

I just got done with the finals and will resume posting soon including the stories. Here is a really interesting link (found via BoingBoing) on some really nice Clockpunkish Clocks.

Girl Genius

One of our readers, Mark, suggested that the following online comic may be an example of Clockpunk. So here it is.

The Clockpunk Manifesto

Here is Jay Lake’s somewhat humorous take on Clockpunk. (Don’t forget to read the comments.)

Clockpunk Manifesto
princejvstin has given me the term “clockpunk”, which he apparently got from a GURPS supplement originally. That being said, I’m thinking the world is crying for a Clockpunk Manifesto. (The world just doesn’t know this yet.)

I will now entertain suggestions for resolutions to be included in the Clockpunk Manifesto. I plan to nail it to the door of a bookstore at some point.

Da Vinci Automata Updates

Projects, exams are hitting hard so I have not been able to post much or even read the short stories that have been submitted to the Anthology project. So here is the deal, I will finally get a chance to read the submission in a couple of weeks when I am done with finals. In the mean time I will be posting stuff  that I had saved in the drafts. In the meantime all you Clockers out there keep Clocking!

Da Vinci Automata Got Boing Boinged again!

Our blog got boingboinged again, Here is my favorite part of the post from BoingBoing, “I wish I had time to write something for it!” We would REALLY love to have something by Cory Doctorow, one the reasons being that Cory is one of our favorite writers amongst the new generation of sci-fi writers. (Its not Clockpunk but check out Cory’s new novel Overclocked and an old one Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (CC license).)
