It has been a good week for reading; so much that was actually interesting and so little kerfuffle about previously noisy and annoying things. Not that any of them are more important or unimportant compared to the others; rather that it has been a nice change of pace for it all.
Anywa, we have things here about the Olympics [I can still use that word, right?], lots and lots and lots of 3d printing, cinema awards, gemstones, mobile gaming, software updates, weather, subway station remodelling, music and mashups, vehicles, the alphabet [sort of], uplifting things and depressing things, prehistoria unveiled, magicians and murder, webcomics and the rise of civilisations. Dive in, eat up and laugh loudly:
Sometimes the days fly by, other times they seem to drag on an on. Can’t be too sure which it has been lately around here; time is fluid and not prone to stability.
Today’s links move between technology and everything else and back again quite a lot. Between children’s television and fighting games, you’ll find wireless technology, satellite photography, new MOBA games, wireless warriors, nail polish, GPS 25th anniversary, sand art, horoscopes and more horoscopes, cosplay, gamer racing drivers, avoiding censorship, emotion recognition, thoughts on the future from the past, musical FPS, nuclear fusion, crazy objects in the third dimension, and bouts of humour scattered in large clumps. So jump in and enjoy it all:
Well, it’s been a week already somehow; time flies when you’re sitting there doing the same thing.
You will find lots of things in here today, from movies about girls to movie stars, mimicry to parody, photography to surveillance, prototyping and foreshadowing, flying machines and music videos. It’s all going on. But first, let’s look at the names of computer games, jump in:
Well, this is not overdoing it at all, right? Three posts in just over a week or something. Perhaps this is the new this. Whatever this is.
This time around we have less webcomics and more technology. Lots of fun things to learn about and be afraid. Inbetween the start and the finish you’ll find all sorts of different topics — robots, consoles, names, streams, heroin, amputees, burglars, tornadoes, doctors, consoles, ships, cells, fans, codes, foretelling, stupid, deletions, repeats, forms, board games, aerosol, grummles, consoles, and [400!] babies. We’ll start with some things about 3D printers, and end with a piece on lysdexia. Dive in and get yourself messy:
This one will likely look a little different – full of videos and other random things that have been left out or left behind until now. A complete mess of things really. Somewhere, amongst all of this garbage, should be something to get everyone’s taste. Unless you’re a five year-old from Guatemala with no internet, then you might have some trouble finding something interesting.
Starting off with board games, it leads into web comics, comedy desserts, video games, toy blocks, hostages, customer tracking, copyright enforcers, ghosting networks, short people, piñatas, and ending with actual physical sports. Eat up:
