Re: <nettime> zero views as the new cultural ideal?


May I show you this? It's the 'First-Viewer Television', a project by the
art collective I collaborate with, IOCOSE (http://iocose.org)
It is a playlist, updated every 20 minutes, of 0-views videos from YouTube
http://firstviewer.tv/

The API collects videos with a zero view count, and updates the playlist
every 20 minutes. Whatever you see on the First-Viewer TV, you are the
first viewer of it.
It is part of the NoTube project http://www.iocose.org/works/notube
an ongoing series of works based on YouTube's search engine and archive of
videos.

'Zero views' is the new 'one billion views'.


best,
