The interactive installation, I Want You To Want Me, explores the search for love and self in the world of online dating. It chronicles the world's relationship with romance across all ages, genders, and sexualities using real data collected from Internet dating sites. The piece is presented at MOMA New York on a 56" touch-screen and was installed on February 14, 2008. As well as a clever use of data it's a compelling work and beautiful.

There's a whole bunch of 'software as service' type sites cropping up, but which provide the service free. Picjuice lets you manipulate your photos as does Pixlr whereas Effect Generator provides Flash for the masses. These are great services. Wonder what the business model is? Still, let's enjoy it as long as it remains. It's a trend big enough that the mighty Adobe have launched a Photoshop Express website which does much the same as Picjuice and Pixlr but you have to sign up for an account - mind you you also get 2GB of free storage.

Space is sooooo cheap nowadays. Up to 10GB from Humyo to store and share whatever you like (as long as it's a file, and I guess as long as it's legal and all that). They have a business service too - in case you want to store more than 10GB. It's amazing to us that this could be a viable business model - well, amazing to those of us who can recall our first 32MB portable MP3 player. The very best of luck to them.
