- I have a thing for “ugly”, 1996-esque sites (I think they’re awesome). Here are some of my recent finds:
- The Daily Mole has a good op-ed about the problems with accessible web video for hearing impaired people. This is an interesting topic, and one can see both sides of the issue, but clearly at some point the technology will have to evolved and web video will need captions. Target lost a suit for not making it’s website accessible, so one hope major media outlets are aware of the ramifications for avoiding accessibility. One has to wonder, though, what should someone who’s putting a video on YouTube be responsible for? When everyone is a media outlet, what is the cutoff?
- The 48 hour film project moves into second life.
- This is a pretty slick hack of Canon cameras to get a very high speed shutter.
- Neat threadless shirt, “The internet was closed so I thought I’d come outside today.” Cool, except the internet doesn’t close, and right now it’s 7 degrees outside, so I’ll just stay in, thanks.
