Photosynth Demo

I’m still kind of letting this all soak in, so I’ll just quote the YouTube poster, ‘jayeshsraut’:

“Using photos of oft-snapped subjects (like Notre Dame) scraped from around the Web, Photosynth creates breathtaking multidimensional spaces with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation. Its architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, shows it off in this standing-ovation demo. Curious about that speck in corner? Dive into a freefall and watch as the speck becomes a gargoyle. With an unpleasant grimace. And an ant-sized chip in its lower left molar. “Perhaps the most amazing demo I’ve seen this year,” wrote Ethan Zuckerman, after TED2007. Indeed, Photosynth might utterly transform the way we manipulate and experience digital images.”

So, yeah, it’s pretty nifty, and you should check it out.

Well, I’ll assume everyone has gotten a looky-loo at the new layout that I foolishly thought would be a quick switch last night. What I thought would be an hour or two’s conversion work lasted until just up to the girls‘ 4am feed, so my apologies for the post-less morning.

I’m quite fond of it myself, and I’m sure everyone can agree that we were well overdue for a layout change (considering 2 years of no change on the internet translates to like 50 years real time).  We’re still running on Expression Engine while some migration bugs get worked out, but we’ll be moving to WordPress super soon, which will mean some sweet new features for everyone.

As a ‘something old something new’ kind of thing, here’s a great photography site that was sent to me by none other than our dear pal and former contributor HeretiqueChema Madoz’s photography and design is a great exercise in simple beauty, and thankfully a knowledge of Spanish isn’t necessary to navigate the site.

Because I’m an idiot, I completely forgot to run a mention that I’ll be contributing to YesButNoButYes’s excellent ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ section, starting umm…… right now.  Check it out for the best of this week’s web droppings along with a few you have seen here!

Update: Seriously, I’m apparently completely htmltarded this weekend.

There are few shows I dearly want released to DVD more than the complete 3 year run of The Johnny Cash Show.  I love me the Man in Black, but the real reason I want the show out on DVD is because of the guest stars and musicans that appeared with Johnny.  It’s a veritable who’s who of great country music, but also a great document of popular music at the time.  And besides, where else are you going to see Johnny Cash goofing around with The Monkees?

  • Have You Ever Dreamed of Upgrading: A winsome and whimsical little animation about our favorite future murderous overlords: Robots.

  • Family Guy – Take On Me: Chris has a strange and wonderful adventure

  • Grow – RPG: A great update on one of our favorite online timewasters.

  • Middle Finger Man: Finally, a man comes along to show us the indominable spirit and work ethic that has made this great nation proud!

    While we’re at it…what’d we leave out?  Send us your Suggestions & Submissions!  Seriously.  We’re dying over here.

    See ya at 8 AM on Monday morning, and this time somebody bring some damn doughnuts.

    Howdy, howdy, howdy!  We here at the Transbuddha Ranch is gonna rustle up some prime cuts from this last week for your shock and awe.  Get on it, little doggies!

    1. The Avalanches – Frontier Psychiatrist: Was there any doubt?  Ghost choirs, turtle people, monkey and grandma drummers.  It’s a classic!
    2. It’s Time for Timer!: Nostalgia always wins. Who’s up for a bowl of Smurfberries and some brain-rotting cartoon action?
    3. The Great Space Slingshot: Not to be confused with the Great Space Coaster, this addictive game lets you careen a young Christian vegetable through space? Talk about something for everyone…
    4. The Fingertips Project: Whether you love They Might Be Giants or no, ya have to admit this is one great collaborative effort.
    5. Man Teaches Monkeys The Value Of Money: Prostitution, gambling, robbery:  It’s good to know our monkey pals are so much like us

    There you have it, folks!  See ya on Monday.
