(summary by Steward Brand ) Why nature is rebounding Over the last 40 years, in nearly every field, human productivity has decoupled from resource use, Ausubel began. Even though our prosperity and population continue to increase, the trends show decreasing use of energy, water, land, material resources, and impact on natural systems (except the ocean). As a result we are seeing the beginnings of a global restoration of nature. America tends to be the leader in such trends, and the “American...

These are test images taken with a Nikon 1 J5 to compare in-camera compression vs linux based. imagemagick was used to take the .NEF (raw) to -convert.jp2 and -convert.jpg with default settings.      the 003.jpg file came from the camera. I did a screen shot of zooming in on these and I did not see much of a benefit by going from NEF to jp2 or to jpg. so from this, seems the camera does a good enough job. -brewster

Nina Paley and Theodore Gray have a robo-quilt making machine and makes quilts for you.  This morning I ordered one and then they said it would take 4 hours and start in a couple of hours.  They sent me email and I got to watch my quilt being sewn earlier today on a webcam they have mounted over the machine.  This is that video taken as a screen movie. I also included still photo of the finished quilt on the machine. Fun.   https://twitter.com/ninapaley/status/576496969704701952...

comment 1
Culled from various sources, this collection includes over one million JPG, PNG and GIF album covers. The resolution ranges from "thumbnail" through to very large sizes. Filenames are variant in usefulness, although a good number indicate at least the name of the original album. This dataset is for experimentation and image processing research only. At 148gb, the collection is large but not unmanageable (there is a torrent available) and allows a developer or artist to work with the...

Published on Sep 11, 2014 Our memory is dissipating. Hard drives only last five years, a webpage is forever changing and there’s no machine left that reads 15-year old floppy disks. Digital data is vulnerable. Yet entire libraries are shredded and lost to budget cuts, because we assume everything can be found online. But is that really true? For the first time in history, we have the technological means to save our entire past, yet it seems to be going up in smoke. Will we suffer from...

To test how to scan LP covers, we tried an informal test of resolution. (lighting was not a part of this). david rinehart took the photos of 2 random lps.     these are on a Nokon D600 24Megapixel camera in raw format.   macintoshes seem to know how to display these.
