It's link time!
Thanks so much to everyone who has been reaching out to me lately, everyone is working on such diverse and interesting stuff.
Here are a couple readers I stalked this week:
William Ricci is a multi-talented programmer and writer. He seems to have found the right balance between computer time and (gasp) stepping away from the computer.
William has been writing some pretty cool poetry on his personal site. He is also writing for Stone Path Review, an online magazine for creatives. Go read his stuff!!!
Wayward Strategist is a website devoted to strategy games. They regularly post reviews and discussions about cool games new and old. Definitely check them out of you're even remotely interested in gaming. Hell, check them out if you aren't.
Okay, that's talking about my readers behind their backs... for today. If you're making something cool, I'd love to hear about it.
In the meantime, you webcomic lovers out there should go read yesterday's Diary of a Squirrel. It puts some of the things I say my comic into perspective. Perhaps too much perspective.
And finally, Skylit is a creative demo experiment I stumbled across yesterday from DCGI and Adobe Research. They have worked out a way to take a drawing of a simple shape, and reinterpret the sketchy drawing style onto a more complex shape. One example shows an artist coloring in a sphere while the software applies her sketchy style to a 3d scene of a humanoid shape, making it look as though she sketched a 2d drawing of a humanoid shape. I'm doing a lousy job of describing this. Just click on the link and save me from the lengthy explanation. It's one of those advances in technology that I've been dreaming of since I was 8 (but not motivated or smart enough to make myself). I have no idea when this will become available to consumers, but I want it, I want it NOW.
Okay, those links should keep you busy. See you Tuesday.
