Soso welcomes JC Nesci

October 29th, 2013
Justin Manor




We are happy to welcome the newest member of the Sosolimited team, JC Nesci!

Hailing from Montreal, JC is a designer/coder who’s work deals with creating participatory experiences, through event design and interactive installations. From high school to university, driven by his curiosity JC jumped between disciplines, his interests moving from traditional art training to computer science and design. He picked up a bachelor’s in Computer Science & Computation Arts at Concordia University and recently graduated from Event Design at UQAM, in Montreal. Among other things, he’s built a christmas tree that tells stories of holiday celebrations; an outdoor university classroom with a mobile sharing platform to spread life lessons; and bird houses in parks that gather and disseminate your most precious secrets to one and all.

JC’s epicureanism and love of all things beer made him the perfect fit for Soso’s new West Coast studio in San Diego!

You can see JC’s portfolio on his personal site : JCNesci.com

The whole Soso crew was out in Minneapolis for the EyeO festival last week. We held a workshop, gave a talk, and launched our new YouTube remix project, Semantic Sabotage. It was an inspiring and refreshing week of talks and ideas, and a rare chance to hang with the brightest minds—and the biggest hearts—in our field.

Open Source Reconstitution

October 26th, 2012
Eric Gunther

We said we would, so here it is. Reconstitution 2012, the source. In the name of letting go, we’ve decided to release first and house keep later. Eventually we’ll get around to cleaning up and organizing the code into a more generalized and unobtuse package.

What exactly does it do? Reconstitution 2012 is a web platform that uploads, processes, and distributes closed captioning data in real time. Like most things in the spacetime continuum, it has a back end and a front end.

Murder your inner pundit.

October 17th, 2012
Eric Gunther

Everyone is asking, “Who won last night’s debate?”

We like to think that we, as humans, are far more advanced computational beings than computers, but we sure act like a bunch of computers. Considering the effective bit depth and resolution of our squishy neural networks, we spend a lot of time thinking and talking about ones and zeros. Win or lose. Red or blue. Right or wrong. Them or us. This or that.

Announcing ReConstitution 2012

October 16th, 2012
John Rothenberg

“Obama was listless up there”. “Ryan’s grasp of the facts is tenuous,” & “Biden was clearly unhinged.” — some quotes from talking-head political pundits in reference to the recent televised Presidential and Vice Presidential Debates. A lot of the ‘analysis’ coming out of the 24 hour news cycle is often little more than self-reinforcing hyperbole and subjective name-calling. But what if there was a way to cut through the candidates’ and news agencies partisan smoke screens and see what was really going on inside the minds of our would-be leaders? Was Obama really daydreaming during the 1st debate? Does Romney actually believe anything that comes out of his own mouth?

Lucky for you, ‘the People’, Sosolimited has built a better way to experience the Presidential Debates. While the Secret Service declined our request to hook Obama and Romney up to polygraph machines, we’ve done the next best thing and installed our patented Bullshit DetectorTM technology onto the internet. The result is ReConstitution, your go-to resource for live Presidential Debate psychoanalysis. Using some real ‘science’, a line or two of JavaScript, and a heavy dose of CSPAN-2, we’ve built a real-time forensic app, that cuts right to the chase and allows viewers to see deep into the psyches of the men competing to be Mr. USA.

ReConstitution 2012 Is Coming!

October 2nd, 2012
John Rothenberg



Every four years our nation’s potential leaders throw off the gloves and duke it out on the big stage. For the previous two elections, Sosolimited performed live audiovisual remixes of these Presidential Debates. This year, we’ve upped the stakes with our newest project, ReConstitution 2012. Part data visualization, part experimental typography, ReConstitution 2012 is a live web app linked to the televised US Presidential Debates. We are partnering with our good friends at The Creators Project to make it happen. Our site will be live for the 2nd debate on October 16.

The goal of the piece is to provide a massively annotated play-by-play of the candidates’ verbal jousting. During and after the three debates, language used by the candidates generates a live graphical map of the events. Algorithms track the psychological states of Romney and Obama and compare them to past candidates. The app allows the user to get beyond the punditry and discover the hidden meaning in the words chosen by the candidates. We teamed up with Professor James Pennebaker and his longtime researcher Cindy Chung at the UT Austin Department of Psychology to bring their natural language processing algorithms to a live application.
