This is a really good piece by Ev Williams on how we measure things when it comes to web content. Highly recommended for anyone who works in the industry.
A lovely short film with great characterisation.
Wanderers is a vision of humanity’s expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available. Hat tip to Blogography.
This had me crying laughing. Scott Stirling. What a hero.
Near Space Photographer John Flaig outfits weather balloons with cameras to capture novel images of iconic landscapes, such as the Grand Canyon. Really cool stuff.
