Prince of Persia
Really rather impressive port of Prince of Persia to... the BBC Micro. From the original Apple II source code which is, of course, also a 6502 chip - although not quite the same. The palette may be rough and ready, but the sound and animation is spot on. I'd dread playing this with the original micro keyboard, though.

Jammit: Industrial Strength Asset Packaging for Rails
"Jammit is an industrial strength asset packaging library for Rails, providing both the CSS and JavaScript concatenation and compression that you'd expect, as well as YUI Compressor and Closure Compiler compatibility, ahead-of-time gzipping, built-in JavaScript template support, and optional Data-URI / MHTML image and font embedding." Looks good.

Jeffrey Friedl's Blog » An Analysis of Lightroom JPEG Export Quality Settings
Jeffrey does that hard work so you don't have to. I'm going to leave my slider set around 75, but it's still good to know what the hell is (vaguely) going on under the hood...

American Pixels
"As computer technology has evolved to make artificial images look ever more real - so that the latest generation of shooter and war games will look as realistic as possible - ajpeg is intended to go the opposite way: Instead of creating an image artificially with the intent of making it look as photo-realistic as possible, it takes an image captured from life and transforms it into something that looks real and not real at the same time." Beautiful.

KANYE WEST "Welcome To Heartbreak" Directed by Nabil on Vimeo
And Kanye's datamoshing too. This is a bit more subtle and polished than the Chairlift video, but ideally suits the song.

YouTube - Chairlift "Evident Utensil" OFFICIAL ISSUED VISUALS!! WATCH IN HD!!!
Music video actively exploiting compression artefacts. The transitions are striking; the reaction to something looking this supposedly broken is peculiarly visceral. Digital patina.

cityofsound: Cables
"Either way, I love reading these cables. The language is crafted so perfectly, despite the constraints. They’re caught between poetry and machinery." Yes. And what a different game it was then; lots to like in this taut post from Dan Hill.

nihilogic: Compression using Canvas and PNG-embedded data
"I got this idea to stuff Javascript in a PNG image and then read it out using the getImageData() method on the canvas element." Blimey.

The Death of High Fidelity : Rolling Stone
"Over the past decade and a half, a revolution in recording technology has changed the way albums are produced, mixed and mastered — almost always for the worse." Good Rolling Stone article on compression, enhancement, and why it sounds rubbish.
