Building Rome in a Day
"In this project, we consider the problem of reconstructing entire cities from images harvested from the web. Our aim is to build a parallel distributed system that downloads all the images associated with a city, say Rome, from Flickr.com. After downloading, it matches these images to find common points and uses this information to compute the three dimensional structure of the city and the pose of the cameras that captured these images. All this to be done in a day." Woah.

Dopplr Blog » Blog Archive » Dopplr presents the Personal Annual Report 2008: freshly generated for you, and Barack Obama…
"We’ve generated what we call the Personal Annual Report for all our users. It’s a unique-to-you PDF of data, visualisations and factoids about your travel in 2008, that we’re delivering over the next week via email to every Dopplr user who travelled in 2008. To give you an example, we thought we’d show you the Personal Annual Report of someone who’s had a very busy 2008 - President Elect Barack Obama." This is super-awesome. Can't wait for mine, no matter how small it is.

FeedTools
"FeedTools is a simple Ruby library for handling rss, atom, and cdf parsing, generation, and translation as well as caching. It attempts to adhere to Postel’s law—i.e. a liberal parsing and conservative generation policy." Wasn't aware of this until now, remarkably.

GridMaker Reboot - Article - andrewingram
Lovely little Photoshop jsx script. Might tweak it to make the horizontal lines a config option - I've hacked it to disable them for now.
