www.peterlangenhahn.com – This guy is kind of insane, his final output can take six hours to save. But what is he doing? He is compositing images of an event into one frame, it reminds me of the wheres Waldo of yesterday but now it's done with real photos and are just really epic. He scenic shots are also remarkable but it seem most of his photos are in Norge and so he is guaranteed a much better subject for photography than Kansas.
So there are info graphics and then there are motin graphics and then sometimes they come together. In this case in a very scary way. The video is about stuxnet, and if you don't know what it is here is a brief explanation. Stuxnet is a very advanced computer virus designed to disable the Iranian Nuclear program. No body knows who made it but all that may be old news and you'll understand why after you watch the video.

W3C HTML5 Logo - funny thing I'm here at hamilton working on the presses and my first blog post is about a logo. Well it is what it is I guess. So we now have a logo for a code standard and it strikes me as just a little odd but I do like the outcome(I'm partial to orange at the very least). Normally we brand "things" and although you could say html 5 is a thing it also is a little more intangible than lets say USB that also has a logo or wireless standards.
