I bought jogging runners last week, and since I'm still in the walk run state I've been taking my camera with me to play around with photography.

If you haven't heard, Google have made the Nik batch of photo filters free. This used to be a $600 package when it was a standalone company..

Having fun with the "Silver Efx Pro" filter in Adobe Lightroom.

Pink Floyd, The Wall, Track: Empty Spaces

Back in the day a friend told me he heard a backwards warble in the track. We recorded it on tape and played it backwards, sure enough, there's a message there!

It starts at about the 1:10 mark in the forwards direction.

Since Easter is coming up, I won't spoil this Easter Egg by giving away the message..

Wow... O_o

You know all those fake news sites that the media constantly have to deal with? Sites that look real and are made to try to trick people into thinking something that isn't real? Yeah.... that problem just got worse.

Now we can do real-time 'reenactments' where people with simple web cams can make politicians do whatever they want.

The rise of the misinformed just got another tool to play with, and the need for fact-checking just went up by a lot.

Mind you, the technology is awesome. I see a lot of real-world use for this in movie and gaming productions. But the fake news 'potential' is scary as hell.

And now for something completely different..

Sir Thomas Malory died #onthisday in 1471. This sole surviving manuscript copy (known as the Winchester manuscript) of Malory’s version of the legends of King Arthur and his knights was made within a decade of the author’s death.

Malory wrote ‘Morte d'Arthur’ during 1469 while he was imprisoned. http://bit.ly/1QRvB0V ___And now for something completely different..

Slow Light
via u/thebreadnaught

Light travels fast, very fast! If only we could capture light moving slowly through our long lenses we could perhaps better appreciate how they work and even where and why our lenses cause aberrations. Benedikt Bitterli shows us how this can be accomplished, virtually!

In most of Computer Graphics, light speed is assumed to be infinite: Light sources illuminate their surroundings the instant they are turned on. Since light speed is a lot faster than the average camera shutter speed, this is a reasonable approximation. But what happens when we remove this assumption? If we created a virtual camera that was fast enough, we could capture light as it spreads through the virtual scene! To find out what this looks like, I modified my 2D light transport simulator to render transient effects.

The idea of capturing light in slow motion is not new - in fact, the Femto-Photography project succeded in doing this with physical cameras, which is an impressive feat. Jarabo et al. applied the Femto Photography idea to 3D rendering and rendered beautiful imagery of light moving through virtual 3D scenes. Building on my previous experiments with 2D light transport, it was my goal to apply this concept to 2D rendering.

The sociopath at work.

Bill Gates should have ZERO credibility here.

Microsoft bent over backwards for the labels over DRM, and pretty much crippled Vista to set up the "secure audio path" nonsense in Windows to keep people out of their own computers.

He was completely ready to hand his users rights over to the little authoritarians in the RIAA. Which was a completely cynical marketing ploy to try and control digital music. And then "Plays for Sure" turned out to mean "no, you'll have to buy all your music again when the license servers shut down".

So it's no surprise he thinks you should find a "balance" with the big authoritarians.

When Bill Gates tells you that you need to find a "balance", you know that "balance" will involve you giving up your rights.___The sociopath at work.
