the baggy trousered misanthropist

missives issued from the lair

A digital technology artist recently diagnosed with brain cancer has released his medical records in the hope that someone might be able to help him with a cure.

Salvatore Iaconesi cracked the proprietary code on his scans, notes and test results and published them on his website so that others can use them to “create a video, an artwork, a map, a text, a poem, a game or try to find a solution for my health problem“.

What a wonderful use of the collective consciousness that is the interweb. Hopefully, all the doctors aren’t too busy looking at porn to help him.

Take a look at Salvatore’s site. Perhaps you have something to offer too.
