  1. [this is aaronland] haystack triptychs

    More brilliance from Aaron - code to backup and make a lovely standalone site out of your Instagram photos.

  2. The Reaction To ‘Girls Around Me’ Was Far More Disturbing Than The ‘Creepy’ App Itself - Forbes

    Yeah, this I think. There is creepiness around the app but, also, I can use my *eyes* to *see* girls around me but not many people are suggesting we put out our eyes or make all women hide themselves when out in public.

  3. Luxurious Animals Blog - Combining Easel.js and Box2d in Canvas

    I have no plans to use this stuff, but it seems good, so if I bookmark it, it’s as good as learned!

  4. EaselJS: A Javascript Library for Working with the HTML5 Canvas Element.

    What it says in the title. “The API is loosely based on Flash’s display list, and should be easy to pick up for both JS and AS3 developers.”

  5. Seth Ladd’s Blog: Box2D orientation for the JavaScript developer

    A series of posts describing how to use Box2D, “an open source 2D physics engine” with JavaScript.

  6. Theresa May’s Internet History - a Freedom of Information request to Home Office - WhatDoTheyKnow

    Very good. If she’s done nothing wrong, she’s got nothing to hide, so there should be no problem, so they say. (via @gwire)

    @mattsheret Oh, no, silly me, is it taken from an intertitle in ‘Safety Last’?

    @mattsheret Ooh, I can guess this one! Is it from ‘The Maltese Falcon’?!

    The Google glasses video would be so much more interesting if it was through the eyes of, say, an 80-year-old.

    @revdancatt Have Google gamified Analytics yet?

    @iamdanw You’re tuned to Ceefax+1. Re-tune and the clock will fix itself.

    @secretbean But, after I’d made her cry, I’d have brightened the mood with, “But I can eat all the sweets I like and stay up late!”

    @secretbean If she wasn’t with her father I may have broken character and told her The Truth about adult life. The horror, the horror!

    @DeanVipond You’re so lucky! Do you get to watch spinning beachballs too? Do you? Do you?!

    @tedmills That reads like it was written by a 1985-era computer that was programmed with grammar and rhymes, but no sense.
