My Latest Procedural Art

More math-based art, but I really like how this came out a LOT better than my experiment with Fibonacci. Check them out! A really tight Archemedean Spiral featuring my photos tagged with Cornell An Archemedean Spiral based on my Portrait Photos A Hyperbolic Spiral of my Ithaca Photos A Polar Rose made of Flowers and […]

My latest Procedural Art Experiment

I think that nearly everyone who has ever learned about the Fibonacci Sequence is fascinated by how quickly it grows. I wanted to illustrate that, so I created this collage with some modifications to Jim’s makeCollage.pl script. The rules were that each picture takes the place of a number on the Fibonacci Sequence and is […]

Procedural Art

edited to add the tags I used That collage was created by a program. I certainly don’t have the patience to arrange all of those photos one-by-one!I told the program to download all of my pictures tagged with Eric Danny David and Danielle and create this collage. But does that make this any less of […]

More Flickr Hacking

Over the last two days, between playing Portal and Age of Empires III (both of which are…awesome!), I’ve been doing a little more flickr hacking. This is very closely related to my previous Flickr program where I checked if my pictures were ready to be moved into the next views groups. This time I wanted […]

Flickr Views Program

I forgot to post this about 1 or so weeks ago when I finsihed up the script. So here’s how the output looks on my flickr views program:   Now my next step is to put it on the web. However, the Python API I’m using doesn’t do web-based program authentication. It also doesn’t handle […]

Social Web Part 2: Mugshot

Mugshot is the website that continues to surprise me the more I use it.  At first it was just a website with an unusual purple theme.  Then it was the very frustrating site with the purple theme.  Now it just may be one of the most interesting and underrated sites of the year. In case […]

How Flock has completely changed my browsing habits

Flock has completely changed how I interact with the so-called Social Web.  In my case, that means Facebook and Flickr.  Ever since I first started using Flock and received the help I needed to get the blogging to work, I’ve been using it every day.  In fact, that only thing that has kept me from […]

Further Review of Flock 0.9

So I’m using Flock daily now for my web browsing to see how I like it. Since I don’t usually go to Facebook on my own, it’s nice to see the notifications within Flock. Thus, I’ve been more responsive to my Facebook private messages, a good thing since my second-cousin recently caught up with me […]
