5 things to do at Life Online
What do you get when you bring together computers and museums? Super geek time, that's what, as the National Media Museum in Bradford comes into the internet age with a new gallery called Life Online, opening March 30th. But you won't be dragging your heels around dusty exhibits, there's games, retro gadgets and a giant Tim Berners-Lee face for your enjoyment.
Life Online – gaze up at a big World Wide Web-creating face
The net isn't just for science nerds, it can get creative folk all hot and bothered too. One of the Life Online installations we like the look of is Thomson and Craighead's Live Portrait of Tim Berners-Lee (An Early Warning System).
His friendly mug is made up of a grid of feeds from live web cams, using cameras placed all over the world. One is even set on top of a volcano – which makes us happy.
