Your behavior is packed with data that can be utilized to maximize your digital security. IBM researchers are looking at the unique behaviors of individuals to develop the next generation of privacy and protection. They predict that in five years, a “digital guardian” will protect you online. As a result, security will no longer be dependent on vulnerable modes of protection like passwords, but will be automatic and made stronger through us just being us. Check out the video here.

In the future will there be a “Digital Guardian?”

The debate - Unfriend or Unfollow? It’s happening on Facebook. After a long wait, you will soon be able to unfollow friends whose updates you’d like to remove from your newsfeed. The new feature will replace the “Hide All” button, freeing your Facebook newsfeed of the unwanted or meaningless rants by your friends. The “Unfollow Button” will be available to desktop users in the coming weeks and on Facebook’s mobile apps for iOS and Android next year.

Exploring the 2013 Serpentine Pavilion on Instagram

For more photos and videos from this year’s Pavilion, explore the Serpentine Pavilion by Sou Fujimoto location page.

Since the year 2000, London’s Serpentine Gallery (@serpentineuk) has invited a different notable architect to design a structure—the Pavilion—on their lawn to showcase contemporary architectural practice. While past invitees include legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (@aiww), this year’s architect is 41-year-old Sou Fujimoto—the youngest architect to receive a Serpentine commission yet. Fujimoto has constructed a 350 square-meter structure made of delicately latticed steel poles that questions the relationship between architecture and nature.

Recently, the Gallery also commissioned London-based studio United Visual Artists (UVA) and creative agency My Beautiful City (@mybeautifulcity) to install a series of LED lights throughout the pavilion for the 2013 Summer Party. For the event, the lights flashed and pulsated to mimic the electrical charges active within a storm cloud while a perfectly synchronized soundtrack of electrical buzzing and rolling thunder brought the experience to life.
