Wind Map is like watching wood breath.
Most of the time visualizations are far more pretty than meaningful, but hint.fm seem to have struck a balance between informatics, design, and fluency.
Here is a global take on a similar idea.

If this, then that. Use simple conditional statements to automate internet-related tasks. Quite a cool idea, but I like to keep my online self sparse and localized; imagine having to maintain all that crap?

Classic Art Anew

, on December 29, 2011


Some more artwork stuff! Metafilter had another intriguing post, this time about a contest run by Booooooom (terrific name!) to remake classic works of art through creative use of photography. My other favorite is this Pot Pourri.
The submissions are fun, also fun are all the paintings, which led me to WikiPaintings, a site that does a great job organizing its subject matter along with high resolution images.
