BIKExMESSENGER MEXICO CITY

About This Project

xCLINIC MEXICO CITY  BIKExMESSENGERS:  local media, very local media, coproduced and  change who, where, how and why news is produced.

In the first prototype of BIKExMESSENGERSs the geolocated information displayed information on your wheels that included the traffic fatalities at the intersection you were riding through, and on the bike path on the East and Hudson Rivers–the off-shore organisms, like seahorses,  appeared on your wheels.
We just launched a new BIKExMESSENGER with android and iPhone software, and new hardware in collaboration with Transition Festival in MEXICO CITY is playing public information in
and block, updating as you ride; or economic statistics, like the extent of student debt, in the form of “occu-pie” charts – thereby enabling you to transform your bike into a moving civic media display.

Unlike paid advertisement displayed in public transit, this indicator, and the ones to follow, are in the interests of the rider and in all our interests.

Knowing, in situ, localized economic data, or aggregated pedestrian, cyclist, motorbike or other deaths have occurred at a site is a transformative model; and the first of a series of indicators in development for this Newsmotion Bike Messenger display.

xClinic  Newsmotion (NM) Bike Messengers: changing who, where, how and why news is produced.

It’s an alpha prototype kit for LED wheel displays that will visually broadcast geolocative data – such as traffic fatalities at each intersection and block, updating as you ride; or economic statistics, like the extent of student debt, in the form of “occu-pie” charts – thereby enabling you to transform your bike into a moving civic media display.

Unlike paid advertisement displayed in public transit, this indicator, and the ones to follow, are in the interests of the rider and in all our interests.

BIKExMESSENGERs hacks into the visual commons of our shared streets introducing/messaging significant, positive and achievable transformations of urban environments. It carries the metadata that many of us in our transportation choices are exploring how to improve our shared urban environment, not degrade it with our movements. Not only do we put the SPORT back in transport, but our emission less
HOW DO I START A BIKExMESSENGER REALLY LOCAL NEWS PLATFORM IN MY PLACE/HOME?
BIKExMESSENGER, or BXM (not BMX)
is a public messaging platform rather than a consumer blinkyblinky to brighten up your bikeybikey–which it does. Think community radio x local newspaper the BIKExMESSENGER, or BXM (not BMX bikes?) we hope to celebrate the promising urban transformations improving our shared urban environment that the people involved in BXM do.
 Smart
The is the fundamental logic of bicycle transportation.
Although the visuals on our streets are mostly boring corporate advertising
“build not make”

In Mexico City with Transitio Festival U can’t just buy it, u have to build it with other cyclists in a workshop, and then meet
This is not about lycra and expensive
This is not a performance but it is all about the performance.e
Listen cyclists are in the simple machine
