Onemillioncheckboxes – Navigating Human Nature, the NHS, and AI Futures

The craze surrounding the site Onemillioncheckboxes (OMCB) reflects an interesting intersection of collaborative and competitive online behaviour. The concept of one million checkboxes, initially designed to be checked off collectively, has evolved into a platform for users to express creativity, engage in community-driven projects, and even participate in virtual tug-of-war scenarios.

After configuration, with one click of Robobasket my camera pics are sorted into 2011>10>05.2011_10_Robobasket_004
