November 11th, 2016

It is Friday.

It is Remembrance Day where I live.

It is Veteran’s Day in the US.

[pause here for moment of silence.]

And on top of that this has been quite the week. But at least we have some links to check out!

Here goes.

NameDat

“Facts and Stats about your Name.”

That tagline does not do justice to this site.

It presents those stats as a cleverly-designed infographic. Nicely done.

Maotik: Flow

Maotik: Flow

“Inspired by the natural phenomenon of the tides, the multimedia environment offers a sensory experience poetic, playful and aesthetic principles of the rise and fall of sea levels.”

This would be pretty amazing to see in person. Beautiful. Nerdy!

Digital Doilies

A quick little in-browser reflective / kaleidoscopic drawing program. Lovely!

Fist Of Awesome

You fight bears with an incredibly powerful punch.

It’s funny, a little irreverent, and definitely addictive.

Bonus Link!

Caleb Charland: Back To Light

“By inserting a galvanized nail into one side of a potato and a copper wire in the other side a small electrical current is generated. The utter simplicity of this electrical phenomenon is endlessly fascinating for me.”

Mr. Charland photographs some pretty intricate still lives of plants self-generating their own light.

I mean: Who knew?! Pretty fascinating! And beautifully composed.

These have been your Friday Links!

Shout out to all of our veterans and members of our armed forces around the world. We owe you everything.

See you next week. Thanks for reading, especially this week.
