Some of the better links I’ve seen recently:
- How to build a particle detector. (Just for the irony I want an article on how to use your particle detector for divination.)
- I liked this diagram of mythical animals, and mentioned on Twitter that it would work well with HTML map/area tags. The author replied.
- The Helicon is an intriguing interactive ornament and gift idea.
- Extreme close-ups of everyday objects.
- It’s funny how these drawings of rockets make them look like stationery (via Universe Today).
- An iPhone app to help blind people find help (android version coming). Official site. I’ll be interested to hear people’s thoughts after this has been around for a while.
- Language Log’s obituary for Suzette Haden Elgin (I read her blog for a while a few years ago).
- I’ve discovered that the Cloud Appreciation Society website and the Stich.It web application work beautifully together. Here’s a slideshow I made from twelve of the oldest clouds in the gallery.
I’ll be attending a few performances at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in the second half of February, and I might report on some of them afterwards.
Incidentally, below is the colour you get if you mix one teaspoon of mulberry juice with two and a half tablespoons of icing sugar. It tastes far too sweet and I don’t intend to make it again, but you gotta experiment in life.
