Polish CG arthouse Platige is back with a teaser for their new project TEACHING INFINITY, directed by Jakub Jabłoński and Bartłomiej Kik. We'll be back more info on Platige as they're quite a massive player to deal with - if you remember THE CATHEDRAL (that's their first CG short that made them real famous in the googler crowd, I guess) in 2002 - that's a SIGGRAPH main prize and an Oscar-nomination there. As for the new trailer, that looks like some wicked Escheresque android development myth with a distinct Platige touch. (via quietearth.us)
"The limitation to what you can find on Youtube is basically your own imagination. When I think of something, if I don’t automatically think of searching for it on Youtube, I will never see it. When something comes to mind, I try to train myself to google it and then look on Youtube, often with the most amazing results. I think, in the end, if we just kind of run this technology out to its logical conclusion, we will end up with something like a single retina that covers the entire inner surface of a sphere, looking at itself, being quite self-sufficient, and made completely of Youtube videos."
There's a new Gibson interview out on Void Manufacturing by Ulrich Gutmair, focusing on YouTube, AR, marketing, American politics, voodoo and many others. Great stuff, gz!

Storming off for a rewarding Tom Yum Khai experience with a friend, so I'm brief on this one: interactive bar surface by Alex Haw, as aptly summarized by grinding.be: the more activity a person generates on the bar, the more images are created, along with an increase in movement. (link)
And it starts like this.
HVG (Weekly World Economics) Háló IT add-in publication, thanks to my colleagues who were probably very, very bent on emphasizing the fact that I'm desparately crying for help in Japanese. Anyways, sidegrin.
