Well hello August.

And helloooooo Friday!

Links time!!

» I Know Where Your Cat Lives

“I Know Where Your Cat Lives is a data experiment that visualizes a sample of 1 million public pics of cats on a world map, locating them by the latitude and longitude coordinates embedded in their metadata. The cats were accessed via publicly available APIs provided by popular photo sharing websites.”
This is impressive (to me.)

» Grandpa’s Photos

“We found these amazing photos Grandpa took in a box when cleaning out his house. Please help find the locations in the photos in the hope of a few Grandpa stories. This site holds 50 of Grandpa’s best travel photos and 50 of Grandpa’s family photos. In the hope of allowing as many people as possible to appreciate Grandpa’s beautiful photos.”
This is an amazing little trove of images. The comments are just extra icing. So great.

» Hubert Duprat: Caddis

There are a lot of sites covering M. Duprat’s use of caddis fly larvae in the collaborative creation of bejeweled “cases” for themselves, but his work actually covers a lot of ground. I like.
There is also a great short video from 2011 covering his work.

» Pinata Hunter

Place your paper bag where you think it will catch the most candy, and whack the hell out of that pinata!!
Strangely addictive.
