Looking for some references to nonlinear writing and hypertext, I ended up on the web page of Project Xanadu started by Ted Nelson in 1960. I read about it many years ago, when the web was still quite young, and it was fascinating to read more about the ideas of true nonlinear writing.
I have been struggling with creating video files that are easily playable on both OS X and Windows. Of course it is possible to make an avi with some “ancient” video codec, but that is not very tempting when the new H.264 codec is so nice. Of course, it would be nice if Windows users could use QuickTime, but for those who decline to do so, I found an easy way for converting MPEG-4 files to WMV.
Just found a very nice and handy firefox search engine plugin for the Max/MSP mailing list.
Amit Chatwani posted a note on the Max-list about eye and blink detection. It is for windows only.
Charles Detar has developed colorblobs for Max/MSP, based on Ali Momeni’s NIME 2003 paper. Very nice.
