  1. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society - Vol 1 - 1666 by Various - Project Gutenberg

    Completely wonderful 17th century science. Fascinating subjects, beautiful titles (“A Relation of Persons killed with subterraneous Damps”) and gorgeous language.

  2. ‎Lifestories On-Line Brochure

    Poorly presented, if interesting, business videotaping people telling their life stories. However, the owner, Dr Ellen Brandt, @venerability, is a compulsive twitter spammer.

  3. I-Movix SprintCam v3 NAB 2009 showreel on Vimeo

    Beautiful slow motion video shot using very high speed cameras, up to 2500 frames per second. (via Daring Fireball)

    @brendanquinn Not really interesting: I'm just manually adding metadata to photos I've taken on 35mm film. Date, tagging, aperture, etc.

    Metadata entry and management is bad enough on digital photos. I hadn't thought about the increased manual entry when shooting film.

    Phew, got a few passable photos out of my first black and white films in years. Also many that are entirely black except for one edge. Hmm.

    Despite last year's determination to only do the cafe/pub track at dConstruct 09, I've now bought a ticket. Looks quite good.
