Now you can zoom in on your favourite modern work of art and maybe discover something new while peeking through the magnifying lens. The SFMOMA Artscape is a very cool thing indeed! I’ve zoomed in on one of my favourite  modern artists, the swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966).

I discovered it through Information Aestehics

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I think Vimeo is the best videosite out there. The videos posted here have a much higher audio and video quality than the videos on Youtube. I’m very interested in data visualization, and this video visualizes and tells the story of the internet.

Here I sucessfully managed to use Vodpod to get a Vimeo video into my blog. Vodpod is a service where you can collect videos of different formats to your own Vodpod page and then publish the video to your blog, just like I have done here. Sadly it didn’t work with the quicktime movie format (see earlier post). Another function that doesn’t work is the full screen option, at least not on the video posted here. You can install Vodpod as an extension if you use Firefox. When you find a video Vodpod has recognized, a big yellow symbol will appear on it. The video can then be posted directly to your blog by pushing a symbol in your browser’s toolbar. Pretty neat stuff!
