I have always enjoyed the odd optical illusion
and was excited to discover the Mighty Optical Illusions website.
I lifted this example to catch your eye. Click the image to enlarge.

Like always, once I get to see improved, better version of a previously featured submission - it goes live immediately! It doesn’t matter how many times similar effect has already been showcased. And what we have here today is "seemingly animated" pattern on steroids! If I can recall correctly, last one I have enjoyed so much (belonging to the same category) was the Running Snakes promo. Check out the psychedelic formation below! Can you really believe the image is static, and that the motion is just an illusion? Try opening it in full-size to experience the effect in its full glory. From now on, this one is my favorite!

[...] Scoop: Mighty Optical Illusions (c) is a website dedicated to optical illusions, magic tricks and puzzles. And the best thing about them, they’re free! Yes, free free free pictures free images! Single sentence describes this website perfectly: "When the perception turns against you!". Providing regular updates, giving quick and easy aces to our database makes our guests coming back. We are growing fast and giving our best to keep the throne of Internet leading Optical Illusion website. ...

The Story of the Invention of Television.


A biography of Philo T. Farnsworth, inventor of the television.

In 1921 the 14-year-old Mormon had an idea while working on his father's Idaho farm. Mowing hay in rows, Philo realized an electron beam could scan a picture in horizontal lines, reproducing the image almost instantaneously. This would prove to be a critical breakthrough in Philo Farnsworth's invention of the television in 1927. Source: pbs.org & Google Video

A six month journey along the 2,200 mile long Appalachian Trail, condensed and reinterpreted into five minutes of stop-motion.

    The Appalachian Trail is a rugged wilderness footpath stretching 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine. Each year a few adventuresome individuals endeavor to hike its entire length in one long trek. For half a year these thru-hikers encounter all of the severity, grace and challenge to be found on the United States' most famed trail. Filmmaker Kevin Gallagher walked the length of this path and, in doing so, sought to capture the sometimes inchoate and transcendent experience of living in the natural world.

The Meaning of "Richesnay"

Spring is officially here but it is hard to tell from the weather. We had a small blast of snow today and that got me thinking of Richesnay and the following article. I originally wrote this for TheClimber.net. For the longest time if you "AltaVista"ed the word you would be served this, top-center. TheClimber.net had catastrophic data loss and this content went with it. However thanks to the "Wayback Machine" over at Archive.org I was able to rescue the following and happily resubmit it here BlogDogIt.
First Published 09 March 08 12:40 AM http://www.theclimber.net/

    There is a very good possibility that today was Richesnay. All the signs were there. The sudden blowing, swirling, voluminous, late winter snowfall that surely marks the coming of spring.

    While I am certainly not one to scoff at Punxsutawney Phil's prediction this year of 6 more weeks of Winter. It would be far less likely for me to turn my back on the perennial wisdom of my Grandfather. While the rest of the world seems to make bank on a woodchuck's shadow, yea or nay, we will put our faith in Richesnay.

    Richesnay does not boast the forecasting precision of "Grounhogs Day" nor does it exhibit the degree of universal acceptance. For Grandpa at least - and for us by extension - it is a truism. It is just one of those things that you have to see to believe. As far as my family is concerned, we have seen it enough to believe.

    The truism - simply put - goes something like this: "We can't have Spring until the Richesnay." If my Mother's acuteness to the conditions that constitute Richesnay are anywhere near those of my dearly departed Grandfather then we should fully expect Spring to be just around the corner. While this prediction lacks certitude it's always been good enough for us.

Reprinted from Ben Krasnow's Blog:

Today, I finally produced an image with my DIY scanning electron microscope. I've spent the last few months working on this project, and am encouraged by today's success. There is still a lot of work left to do in making the image higher resolution, and eliminating sources of noise, however this image proves that all parts of the microscope are operating as designed.

Creeper is 40

Creeper, the first computer virus, is 40 years young.

Creeper (from the old Scooby Show

    Forty years ago today [ March 17, 2011 ] is considered by many to be the birthday of the first computer virus. Of course, in the early 1970s they weren't called computer viruses, but that doesn't make Bob Thomas's handiwork any less special. Creeper (named after a character in the old Scooby Doo cartoons) spread from BBN Technologies' DEC PDP-10 through Arpanet, displaying the message: "I'm the creeper, catch me if you can!" and messing with people's printers. One notable difference between this and the majority of viruses was the fact that it deleted old versions as it replicated itself. Incidentally, that would make 2011 the fortieth anniversary of the first anti-virus software: called, appropriately enough, Reaper.
