Zoom Escaper

Zoom Escaper

This site, which will require access to your microphone, will add extra audio to your Zoom connection so you can beg out of a Zoom meeting.

Crying baby, a man weeping, urination (?!?!) — all can be added to your feed so you can say “Sorry guys, I have to take care of something.”

There is a tutorial video.

Weird. Very much a 2021 invention. Also making the rounds.

Photographer Captures the Cast of ‘Little Women’ in Traditional Wet Plate Portraits

“These dramatic, sepia-toned photographs were made using the collodion process—a photography style invented in 1851. This process, sometimes called tintype or wet plate photography, requires that the photo be taken while the plate is wet with light-sensitive chemicals and exposed before the plate dries.”

Fantastic!

Random Rijks

Random Rijks

Loads a completely randomly selected artwork from the Rijks Museum collection. Refresh for a new randomly selected item.

“While the Rijks Museum is quite large, most of its collection is not readily available to see for the general public. This project allows people to take a deep dive and see objects they might never see otherwise.’

Great project.

Jan 6 Evidence

Jan 6 Evidence

“Since the January 6 attack on the Capitol, hundreds of volunteers have scrutinized photos and video of the event. They have reviewed thousands of hours of footage, created timelines, identified and tracked persons of interest, synchronized videos, and provided analysis.

“This site is an effort to help organize and visualize this crowdsourced information.”

Based on this story from HuffPo.
