    New GIFaCHROME technology in development


    Layercake, is a developing technology for the GIFaCHROME camera. Layercake is not quite ready for release but we have a few test images which give some idea of the affordances of the new subsystem. Layercake allows your images to take a jump out of the frame. Currently it is not …

    Pioneering use of GIFaChrome


    Recently discovered in the back of a dusty drawer is compelling evidence of the early adoption of the GIFaChrome format by pioneering female photographers.

    These women were not discouraged by the predominant male view that the photographic image should be static or that the gif format was not suitable for …

    I never use g+. I ‘m not sure why. I’ve heard they are collecting a great deal of data, which makes me feel uneasy to use it.

    However, interesting post! I love the gif!…

    I totally share your concerns. I am afraid I might have lost that in a rather rushed post.
    I wish g+ worked in a different way! say like Disqus can the discussion could be displayed on a blog. I feel that embedding a screenshot in the post here is …

    Touché — and I am going to take a step back and aim to be more open minded about Google+ for much of what I see as problems could be turned around and said for twitter (much flows by, hard to manage history, search issues).

    My main concern is if …

    Where in the world is ds106?


    Chatting to Alan Levine yesterday we had a wee idea about putting ds106 participants on the map. I suggested that it might be an idea to use Audioboo. The RSS feeds from audioboo have location data that can be used in google map mashups. I know I already had …

    I love your time lapse! A transformation without a transformation…but the clouds are forever transforming

    I have been completely missing from DS106 this week, time to catch up?

    Today I had a a pile of stuff I wanted to get done, websites to update, blog posts to write, a pile of audio from TeachMeet to edit and publish.
    I decided to go for a hillwalk …
