Just want to acknowledge the joy of this endeavor. A running documentation of your failures is a great idea that I fully support.

On the one hand: of course it does. On the other hand: pretty terrifying. So if Google favours one candidate in an election, its impact on undecided voters could easily decide the election’s outcome. Source: How the internet flips elections and alters our thou…
Aaron “tenderlove” Patterson http://usesthis.com/interviews/aaron.patterson/ Firefox has an extremely nice feature that I like for web development: if you hit ‘ (single quote) it will bring up a search box, but the search box only searches through links on the page. Then you can hit enter to navigate to that link. That way I can avoid […]
I don’t think I agree with the unsupported conclusion, but the video is interesting and generally well done―and the examples are fun. [kad_youtube url=”https://youtu.be/783hwpJTjlo” ]
[kad_youtube url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pv0sizg3Vz0″ ] Watching this makes me feel somewhat nostalgic about the days when copies were hard. Also, it seems so important to document this transition from old to new ways of doing things (and all the drama and challenges inherent to the change). It also reminds me of this clever video showing the changing […]
I can only say that you should watch this and enjoy it. It’s a beautiful video.

This is my vote for best post of 2014. What a fascinating look at structure via data analysis. The entire article is such a refreshing surprise. It explores the structural arcs in TV and Movie scripts across screen time (by breaking episodes into 6 or 12 even chunks) and then creates a single, multidimentional, visual […]
It’s pure in-camera trickery…EUREKA! — suddenly we had our approach. The often overlooked approach. This was a fun read with lovely images. via Alex Buono | HOW WE DID IT — SNL Title Sequence.
I hope artists will pause and realize that misplaced blame and oversimplification of the issues could set us back. Physical album sales are not the long-term solution (case in point: the laptop I’m typing on doesn’t have a CD drive)… …and he’s not even trying to be funny. via Spotify Doesn’t Hurt Artists: My Band […]
Agreed. …humans are bright enough to think our way out the problems we think ourselves into. via Neil Gaiman: How I learned to stop worrying and love the duplicator machines – Boing Boing.
This article pointed me toward the book Superintelligence which pointed me toward a quote from a shorter document by the author from which I’ve quoted below. Anyone wondering what to gift me this Christmas can look into the linked book above. I enjoy being terrified by other people’s thoughts. Two things are striking from the below quote: The […]

What a great idea. “I don’t have anything against Yelp. The idea is fantastic, but the blackmailing thing is ferocious,” says Cerretini. “I think I should be the one deciding if I’m on the site or not. At least I can be there on my terms. The only power they have is they make you […]
♥ — 5 Useful Articles is great. While on an expedition in Indonesia, a nature photographer’s equipment is hijacked by a roving band of artistic monkeys. One of them snaps a photograph of herself. The photographer recovers his camera and posts the picture to the internet. A designer creates a 3D model based on the […]
I wrote a program that transforms literary and philosophical texts into patent applications. In short, it reframes texts as inventions or machines. This is just plain awesome software art. Just look at this patent by Kafka! If a visual artist out there doesn’t start creating the visual figures for these wonderful patents I’m going to […]
