TED website


http://www.ted.com/index.php/themes
 
Spent some time tooling around the TED website this morning and just love the visual presentation of talks in the theme area using varied sizes of images representing various talks weighted by views, votes I'm not sure but it seemed very intuitive and dynamic.
 
Wish i had the Dreamweaver plugin fo that design tgo make it easy to deploy.

Space is Cool « Whatever


Damn, this is an excellent picture from the Cassini Saturn mission:

Saturn’s rings, the small moon of Epimetheus, and hydrocarbon-laden Titan, fuzzy in the background. Gorgeous.

There’s more where that came from here. I’d go look at them if I were you.

Neil Gaiman's Journal: It Was A Dark And Silly Night and stuff



Moby has a new CD coming out. He gave an instrumental track "Shot in the Back of the Head" to David Lynch, with instructions to do whatever he wanted. David Lynch made a haunting little mostly hand-drawn animation. I made a shrunken URL for it at Http://bit.ly/lynchmob, because it made me smile. (It's actually at http://pitchfork.com/tv/#/musicvideo/966-moby-shot-in-the-back-of-the-head-mute).

Thanx Neil

Ted Landau at DVMUG General meeting


Attended the DVMUG monthly meeting last night on a stately but warm Spring night here in the valley. I can be seen sitting in the blue shirt driving the MacBoook while Ted Landau http://tedlandau.com/ fielded questions from the audience. John Sobrero is behind the podium assisting. It was a fun night listening to this specialist on fixing Macs and general Apple lore and teck info. Later, during his presentation we delved into the arcane fixes found in plists, library files, and remnants of removed programs leaving pesky troubles behind after their removal.
 
A special deal was made for his latest ebook: Taking Control of the Iphone. http://www.takecontrolbooks.com/iphone.html. Seems I already had a copy tho - great book, nonetheless.

Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Wawona Tree

A 1918 stereograph of the Wawona Tree, a famous giant sequoia (227 ft/69 m in height and 90 ft/27 m in circumference) that stood in Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park, California, United States. The tunnel was cut through the tree in 1881, enlarging an existing fire scar, making the tree a popular tourist attraction. Often travelers would come to have their picture taken either driving through the tunnel or standing underneath the tree. When it collapsed in 1969, its estimated age was 2,300 years.

now that's a tree - must remember to cruise wikipedia randomly more often

O'Reilly Books ahoy


After Web 2.0 closed on Friday the O'Reilly bookstore donated the remaining books to the DVMUG group and I went over to the office today and helped to sort them out. I picked out this selection and am especially happy about the Twitter, Facebook, AIR, Actionscript and Filemaker 10 books.  Have to read my teck books now.
