Artist Lars Vilks Attacked. Again.
At 6:45 pm, less than a minute after the news broke on Twitter, Ethersource picked up the first aversive signal relating to tonight’s attack on Lars Vilks. (We’ve covered him previously on this blog). This time, elements in the audience threw eggs at him during an evening lecture in Karlstad.
Of the major news outlets, the branch of Swedish Radio located in Karlstad was the quickest in publishing the news, putting it on their national web site at 7:43 pm (SR). The other players were roughly 30 to 45 minutes behind (DN, SVD, SVT). Having Ethersource doing real-time attitudinal analysis of the contents of Swedish Tweets would have brought the news to your attention even earlier.
