Welcome to the final Winter Friday in 2017.

About damn time, I hear you say.

And now: some linkages-es… es.

1917 Free History

“‘1917. Free History’ is a project that enables participants to find out about the history of 1917 from those who lived during this defining moment of twentieth century history.

“The project consists entirely of primary sources. It includes not a trace of invention. All the texts used are taken from genuine documents written by historical figures: letters, memoirs, diaries and other documents of the period.”

Specifically this is about Russian history in the year 1917, encompassing the build-up to the revolution. All of the information is posted as if it were via social media. It’s a pretty interesting read.

Before The Flood

A site created in support of the documentary released last year, hosted by Leonardo DiCaprio. IT shows (among other things) the effect of major sea level rise on predominantly American metropolitan areas.

I Know Joshua Smith: Works

“Joshua Smith is a miniaturist and former stencil artist based in Norwood, South Australia.”

“His miniature works primarily focus on the often overlooked aspects of the urban environment such as grime, rust, decay to discarded cigarettes and graffiti perfectly recreated in 1:20 scale miniatures.”

These are simply fantastic!

Madalin Stunt Cars 2

This requires Unity and definitely takes a while to load.

After that it’s a wide-open playground of ramps and loops and whatnot.

Controls are a little weird, but it’s certainly fun.
