"Friend" (2002) is a software project by Dirk van Oosterbosch.


screencap from presentation

A project taken to its extremes; a mobile computer system - Friend - takes you through the information jungle of the public space, while sending 'agents' to available public networks to select specific information for you. The results are then transmitted through an earphone. The downside: the system containing all your personal data may mutate when it is hacked into by unwanted 'friends'.
