Artist Jeff Thompson received a Rhizome commission in 2012 for his project Computers on Law & Order, for which he watched every episode of the long-running television series and took screenshots of all the computers. Thompson will present an illustrated lecture based on the project this Saturday, Feb 1 at 4pm at the Museum of the Moving Image, followed by a discussion with Law & Order graphic designer Kevin Raper.

Kaycee On Law & Order?
I just finished watching the new episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and there were some striking similarities between it and the whole Kaycee shebang last year.

I mean, sure, there was a big nasty murder in this version, but I think the Law & Order writing crew has been reading Metafilter.
Did you see the episode? Am I wrong? And does this mean that *gasp* web logs are having an effect on pop culture?

should get paid for watching ads customized to our specifications. (via Q
