Seeing the links to this blog on other sites is embarrassing: iBlog generates very long URLs. Not as bad as WebObjects, but still not really human-usable. Maybe I should switch to bloxsom. Or something. I did have my own blog generating script, but it seems silly to continue reinventing the wheel by updating that.
One more procedure and I’ve a complete mini-explor implementation. Then I just need to write a script to compile user programs, make a build/install script, and bundle it up.
Here’s the semi-hemisphere example from the original article run using my implementation:
I didn’t realise that the author of dataisnature was one of the contributors to Flash Math Creativity, now in a second edition updated to use the new Flash ActionScript syntax. I found the first edition an inspiration, the sort of thing I wish I’d had when I was learning to program art (and teaching others to program art).
This is the kind of use of technology that overly restrictive licensing will prevent people who want to make money making money from. 🙂
The CC weblog is an amazing resource. Well worth a place in your RSS reader:
And if you can spare any money at all, do help support CC. They are doing an excellent job, and their t-shirts are cool 🙂 :
