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:
Back once more with lots of look over — with apparently most of it technology related. Lots of futurific things to think about and look forward to.
Along with the usual humour and horoscopes, this post is filled up with Bioshock fish, the most expensive video games around, ancient erotica, Powerpuff more-than-Girls, the oddest cover ever, psycho jeans, Hearthstone, smart wear coming soon, Writer’s Block, net neutrality, sea cows, prescient selling, virtual bodies, technological sheep, Orwell reaching out from the ether, fake online identities, shoes that track you, fake metro signs, micro computers, fake spiders, issues with fandom and finishing up with asteroids. First though, dive into glass related shenanigans:
Well, there’s been a lot read and a lot discarded over the past week. And a lot has been linked below. Perhaps a little excessive, most likely just excited.
So, let’s dig into everything from monkeys to spiders, from satellites to automatons, from doctors to bus drivers, from videos to headphones, from plants to skeletons, from donuts to clean water, from videogames to obsolete computers, from Alzheimers to neuroscience, from criminals to references, from crabs to talking plants, from holograms to algorithms, and finishing off with somebody’s take on how we see Christmas:
Another strange week. Food appears to be a pretty strong theme this time around, with a spattering of news, music, science and art to round it out.
We’ll start with a thermometer tattoo, and move onto vinyl records and death games; search engine privacy, WHOIS lookup privacy, butterflies and wasps, hysterical photos, phones, the art of observation, repurposed coastal defences, insects and umami, why people are leaving Facebook, Grand Theft Auto V is released, lolita costuming, horoscopes and flying drones, something called a ‘swarm economy’, the internet of things and machines of death, the generation gap, and finishing up with the favoured burger of Hemingway. Emjoy:
So there’s quite a few technology and internet articles in here and a larger than normal number of links to movie and television stuff. Two doctors make an appearance – Who and Doctor[ow], the seedier side of the interwebs gets a run down, malware detection for mobiles, everyone’s favourite “WW”, VR making people sick, stupid theives, maps that never happened and maps that correlate the unrelatable, Cookie Monster wants it, advice for artists and role players, warehouses and horoscopes, a song of meat and vegies, the original jpg girl, baking companies going ironic, pictures from space, Bitcoins, bunked scientific theories, getting lucky in your underwear, copyright vigilantism, the return of Omni, cutting up time and some tomfoolery from the AVN Expo, last year. Yeah, I know, it’s late.
