Tata Crucible Preparations 2009 #67

The Internettunnel in Leidschendam/Netherlands by Zwarts & Jansma Architects and artist Hans Muller is an early example of this.
Opened in 1998, people could feed the LED-display via internet with their own texts. Also, words could be blocked for a certain time. The public became its own dynamic filter, preventing for example racist remarks.The word was coined by Jeff Howe in a June 2006 Wired magazine article.What is it?

Staples Center in LA.

Michael Jackson memorial service occurred there. The tagline is that of Staples which is the name sponsor for the center. There is a statute of Magic Johnson just outside the center commemorating his contributions as part of the LA lakers. Bruce springsteen opened the arena for the first time with his concert with the Estreet Band.
