Happy Friday!

And, I guess – if you’re superstitious – beware!

We made it you guys!

Here are this week’s Friday Links!

The Boat

The Boat

“An interactive graphic novel about escape after the Vietnam War. Based on the story by Nam Le, adapted by Matt Huynh.”

Created to promote the SBS Australia show “The Boat“.

This is really beautifully executed.

1969 & 70 – Bell Labs

1969 & 70 - Bell Labs

“I spent a couple of years as Operations Manager at a Bell Labs data center in Oakland, CA developing what was the a state of the art database search system. One day I brought a camera to work and this was the result.”

Those outfits! That super-old computing equipment. That guy with the guitar! It’s a crazy gallery but so good.

Matthew Simmonds: Sculptures In Marble And Stone

“Inspired by a life-long fascination of stone buildings, and drawing on skills learnt as an architectural stone carver, Simmonds’ work takes stone architecture, and particularly sacred architecture, as a central theme.”

This is impressive work. More info here.

A pretty challenging little game!

You mostly move by rotating the playing field. You only occasionally use your jetpack, because it doesn’t have much fuel.

I like it!

There we go. All done! Good work everybody!

See you next Friday.
