There were plans to post this earlier, but they never eventuated into reality. Which is totally fine. Just see what we have in here to make up for it. Or don’t. Right now, it’s not a big deal.
In here today we have links that range around hacking and the law, the concept of irony, online privacy, combining the two most popular games of the year, ladies wearing cream, stills from movie sets, clothing humour, a new take on movie posters, ecological technologies, wearable surveillance, mapping fiction, encrypted emails, fortune telling, pornographer revelations, virtual card games, playing asteroids in real life, frustration leads to anger and not the dark side, and bionic implants making a difference for everyone. Sit down and eat up:
Let’s get this in a day earlier this week, hmm? There’s plenty in here again. Maybe we can get a regular schedule going sometime, twice a week maybe? Just when exactly is the big question. Stupid workloads.
Included is a lot of art and design stuff this week. Why exactly is not really known, it just is. Topics range through cuss words, fancy jewellery, the ever-present horoscopes, the Big G’s glass again, baseball games, printing houses, strategy games, video cameras, pranks that are actually funny, fan films about games, tech cycles and reality, European monuments, games on buildings, mirror images, behind the scenes from movie sets, erosion and porcelain, new fonts from old and we start, revisit and end with something about the latest foul up on the internet. Dig in:
Bit late this time around perhaps, though as penance there is a lot here. Plenty to read and laugh at and so on. A wide selection of topics ranges from the Big Bang [not the television show] to Popes, Irishmen to famous authors, life after death to life before death [or horoscopes], game consoles to new games, remote controls to digital invisibility, virtual reality to augemented reality, hotels to theft, hearing to instant messaging. So jump in and enjoy:
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:
Let’s get this one out before it’s more than week since the previous. Very few categories this time, books, art, news, internet and technology, and of course the obligatory humour and horoscopes. We’ll run through some takes on Disneys business model, various writers rules for writing, privacy and the Big Gs as well as some satire on the subject, a note on why brand name awareness is important, speculation on new phones, an older article on mafioso coders, books in the palm of your hand, their hovercraft is full of eels, how to quit the big Fb, and advice on taking the best selfies from the best of the best.
So, let’s start with Disneys latest anthropomorphic venture:
