A quite difficult flash game.
Have a fabulous Friday and weekend everybody.
Friday at last. And it looking like Autumn where I am.
Here we go…
» Every Time Zone
A really clear and ingenius way of showing different time zones at the same time.
» iTunes Instant
Written by 15-year old Stephen Ou.
» Whitney Music Box
Created by John Whitney, this variety of mathematically-driven flash music boxes, these are more than a little mezmerizing. The alleged goal is ultimately to create a genuine music box which creates this effect.
» Kill Me
Not as straightforward as it sounds.
Another challenging platform flash game.

» Farmville vs. Real Farms (Infographic)
Enjoy your weekend everybody.
Welcome to your Friday.
And your Friday Links!
» Unhear It
“We created this site for those of you that have a song stuck in your head and you can’t get it out no matter what you do.”
What a great idea! Check it out before some lawyers find out about it.
» Album Tacos
» Globe Genie
A great Google Maps mashup from MIT’s Joe McMichael. You tell it which general region of the world, it goes and finds you a random street-view location. From there you can explore.
» Up Down Ready
So simple, and so addictive.

A really, really amazing interactive video presentation. This has been making the rounds but it is definitely worth a look.
