Beyond Facebook: Seppukoo, Architizer

Seppukoo.com is a social website which “liberates the digital body” by deactivating one’s Facebook profile and shaping a social experience out of it. It is meant to reflect seppuku, an ancient practice in Japan in which a samurai warrior kills himself to restore their honor. It was created by ”Linking the Invisible“, a group of European media artists (Guy McMusker, Clemente Pestelli and Gionatan Quintini), who explore the invisible relationships between the “infosphere, neural synapsis, and real life.”
One such digital pioneer is brand-new social networking site Architizer, which is being promoted as a “Facebook for Architects” and will allow “architects, architecture curators, clients, critics and fans, to interact”. The site, which is free to use, allows members to link their personal, firm, and project profiles where they can display a new building, share photos of interesting projects, and have their work pinpointed on a global interactive map.
