Re: <nettime> Call for support: Pirates of the Amazon, taken down by Amazon.com


Say, if art students of another university used their technological
savvyness and artistic inclinations to capture data from an ATM as cards
and pins are entered (this is totally possible and has been done), and then
created an interesting collage of duplicated cards with PINs printed on
them, which they would display next to an ATM (perhaps cards would be tied
to the base with long multicoloured threads so that they can be manipulated
and inserted), and the artistic statement would go along the lines of
revealing the ongoing almost religious reverence for money and its symbols,
such as ATM cards and PINs, and these students were gifted, clever and
loved by their professors and other students, and YOUR card was there, and
ATM customers had a choice of withdrawing cash from their or YOUR account
(due to this clever and humorous hack,) would you mind?
