Link Anthology #2

Due to work and other commitments it’s been a while since I last posted here. In the meantime my RSS client periodically trawled the great ocean of the Internet and landed a rather decent catch of prime linkage. So, without further ado, I present a link anthology - the very best that’s passed before my radar over the last week or so.

Current Affairs

  • The End: The era that defined Wall Street is finally, officially over. Michael Lewis, who chronicled its excess in Liar’s Poker, returns to his old haunt to figure out what went wrong.

Music & Video

  • Scenes from Antarctica: Some of the most stunning photography yet published on the highly acclaimed website, The Big Picture.
  • Multicolr Search Lab: Find Creative Commons images on Flickr via a user-selectable colour palette.
  • 50 Beautiful Examples of Tilt-Shift Photography: A creative and unique type of photography in which the camera is manipulated so that a life-sized location or subject looks like a miniature-scale model.


  • Gesture Based Control: Mgestyk is a new touch-free way to interact with your computer. It lets you control games and other applications just by moving your hands, allowing for more natural and immersive interaction. Gestures are processed in 3D, meaning that even depth-based gestures (like controlling the throttle of a plane) are natural and responsive to use. Mgestyk works even in total darkness! We eagerly await an OS X version.
  • uplog: Freeform R&D.
  • Coming Up Next: This plug-in presents a teaser of your next scheduled post.
  • milo WP: A great collection of high-quality WordPress themes.
