Is glitch art the “soul in the machine”?
Glitches are the frustrating byproduct of technology gone awry. Wildly scrambled images, frozen blue screens, and garbled sounds signify moments where we want to throw our expensive computer products out the window. Many artists and programmers, however, have embraced these crisis moments and discovered beauty in the glitch. By hacking familiar systems, they intentionally cause glitches, and manipulate them to create art. Enjoying the aesthetics of technological mistakes defies the notion that technology and entertainment has to be a seamless experience. Most importantly, glitch artists reveal a certain soulfulness that emerges when complex streams of information, visual media, and our own lives converge in the chaos of the glitch.

my older brother gives a talk on making wall street pay to refund education.
A talk I gave back in March about how Occupy and our related movements are “breaking the rules to make the rules” and reverse inequality.
pretty cool animation - logorama -
Penguins, already fluid dynamicists by nature, have developed clever methods of increasing their speed to escape from the leopard seals that prey on them. In the clip above, notice from 1:55 onward as the penguins swim for the surface and leap onto the ice - they leave a trail of bubbles in their wake. The penguins are using supercavitation to decrease their drag. When the penguins first dive in to the water, they splay their feathers out in the air and then lock them closed in the water, trapping pockets of air beneath them. When the need for a burst of speed arises, the penguin shifts its feathers to release the air, coating most of its body in a layer of bubbles. Because the drag in air is much less than the drag in water, this enables the bird to achieve much higher speeds than they normally do when swimming.
i’ve been working hard on this campaign:
New Video: Behind the clean white Apple logo lies one of the biggest secrets on the Internet. Apple uses coal to power the massive data centers they use to store and send your photos, music, movies, and applications.
We’ve produced a brand new spoof video that exposes Apple’s secret. Be one of the first to check it out!
