The original chicagocrime.org (which has been effectively replaced by EveryBlock) is joining the server invisible, but it will have a brief afterlife at MoMA as part of Design and the Elastic Mind, alongside The Meat of Tomorrow, the moving work of Jonathan Harris, and more. There's also a book. In other news, Imaging by Numbers: A Historical View of the Computer Print is open at Northwestern's Block Museum, which features the work of the first computer illustrator, Ben Laposky, whom Fred Camper wrote about in 2006. Laposky's essay on his "oscillons" is here.
