Baby, I could use a meal.

Yet another IQ Test. Try it out. I scored in the 130 range. Woo, I'm smart or something. I don't have nearly as much free time as my fascination with these things might suggest.

Beautiful photos of the first millionth of a second, by Edgerton's Rapatronic device. (via Gravestmor). More here.

Two great sites about computational art. evolutionzone and; clicking around on the little thumbnails on the left leads you to cool things like GasWorks. Have a look at evolutionzone's workshop page. And friends of - jump off!

More on Proce55ing: processinghacks codetree (this is awesome!). I have gotten no closer to my dreams of learning the language and doing something original, although I have played around with some code and various samples. Another good collection of pages about generative code/art. has good computational graphics stuff and a great Flash presentation.

Superformula (via dataisnature)!!! (Or, your graphics can look like Autechre sounds.) This leads naturally to a discussion of vvvv, and a discussion of why it's not Mac-based yet. Tawk amongst y'selves.

I think I've pointed this one out before, but it's worth mentioning again. Schiffman's Nature of Code lectures.

Oh, and speaking of free time, Free Science and Video Lectures Online. No, I mean good ones - Knuth and some classics.

Subtopia. Quite a dense and intense blog.

Currently listening to KISS, "Dressed to Kill"

A swarm.

A swarm of interesting things.

Flash books with turning pages and background music. Speaking of books, check out the amazing Bird Hand Book. And, Historical Anatomies on the Web. And Life and Death Masks.

Someone is interested in this. How cool.

Cool online indie films.

Look! Code tools for writing generative forms into PDF files. Neato!

An interesting photostream of sketches, generative art, and Proce55ing. And the quite cool 50 People See photostream.

Math-y stuff! What's special about this number? Multiplicative persistence. Wallpaper groups.

Hello, Sun.

Japanese War Tuba and more. (via MusicThing) Acoustic radar. Sure, the Germans were in on acoustic radar, too.

The story behind "ni channeru".

Currently listening to Slayer, "Seasons in the Abyss".
