Multi-Modal Terminal Vision Will Blow Your Mind

Interesting concept!

travelthroughdiversity:

NAMIBIA

I was recently reading an interesting theory that the human eye is drawn toward savanna-type landscapes in the environment — or characteristics of a place that are somehow reminiscent of this type of scenery. The idea being of course that we humans have some kind of internal homing beacon that retains its connection to our assumed evolutionary roots. Hard to say if that’s actually true, as I have noticed that scenery of this sort reminds me of the desert area where I grew up. But I spent some time looking at pictures of savannas, trying to figure it all out.

Producer, actor, comedian, and now author B.J. Novak tells Studio 360's Kurt Andersen that his life/career goal is basically to be Rod Serling, who was a WNYC intern once upon a time. We approve.

The Rod Serling bit here is great. That is all.

The Periodic Table of Storytelling

writingprompts:

I think an excellent and challenging exercise for narrative writing would be to select at random a handful of elements from The Periodic Table of Storytelling* by James Harris. It’s wonderful:

*fair warning to teachers: unfortunately, some of this is probably not quite safe for the classroom.

Hmmm.

Credit is always due.

If you share the work of others, it’s your duty to make sure that the creators of that work get proper credit. Crediting work in our copy-and-paste age of reblogs and retweets can seem like a futile effort, but it’s worth it, and it’s the right thing to do. You should always share the work of others as if it were your own, treating it with respect and care.



Yes.

Adam Magyar is not your average photographer. For one, he built his own camera from scratch. 

Adam’s camera captures multiple frames in the span of a second, which he then compiles into these mesmerizing panoramic portraits. 

Panoramic Portraits of Urban Scenes

via Complex

This is a fun video to watch. I do like how the smooth, straight-line motion eliminates the distorted effect that you would get with, for example, 360-degree panoramic images/movies. This gives a better sense of what things really look like.
