Major to Minor: “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Chase Holfelder
Digital artist Dave Whyte (previously) continues to amaze us with his impressive mathematical gifs that bounce, swirl, and twist around the web as quickly as he posts them online. The Dublin-based PhD student is currently studying the physics of foam and tells us his first geometric gifs riffed on computational modules he was exploring while in undergrad. As interest in the work grows Whyte is focusing more on his artistic side, pushing the boundaries of these small animations created with the Processing programming language.
Three years in prison for creating and torrenting a copy of Fast and Furious 6 seems very harsh. It is very difficult to come up with a meaningful calculation of financial damage to Universal Pictures (and other content publishers) in cases like this, but are lengthy custodial sentences really the answer?
The defendant in this case sounds a bit dim. He continued to distribute the pirate copy even after his arrest and seems to have admitted that he was only seeking notoriety, or as he would style it cred.
It seems like this sentence is largely intended to teach a lesson as the accused is unrepentant. Is he being punished for the unauthorised copying or for having a bad attitude?
