This installation by Erik Kessels has a very simple premise, he simply printed every photo uploaded to Flicker in a twenty four hour period.

As you can see, that’s a lot of photos.

Mozart v2

I know, I know, this is a 60 Minutes story, it’s trash journalism. But the subject, Jay, is truly an exceptional individual. A 12 year old who composes, much as Mozart did, in a continuous stream, without mistakes or corrections for the simple reason that he is in his own words, “downloading the music”. As fabulous as his talents, one can’t help but feel a little sorry for him. His genius, will surely be a burden, unless of course he makes like Mozart did and parties hard. Here’s hoping.

solar gets real….

With Julia and her mandate hating comrades in the socio anarchist Labor party delivering us into the hands of chaos with the delivery of this big new tax thingy, it must come as quite a relief to Tony Abbott to find out that solar power is getting cheaper by the day. And we’re not talking razor thin increments here, we’re talking Moore’s law figures, with Solar power prices dropping 7 percent a year and with every possibility of the speed of the decreases, increasing, if you follow me. This is good news for soy bean munching hippy, crypto fascist socialist homosexuals everywhere, but also good news for you and me, freedom loving mainstreamers who want to live in a world that is fresh clean and more or less a temperature we can live in without having the AC on full blast every day. Here’s that pinko commo apologist for liberals everywhere, Paul Krugman to take us through the fine points,
These days, mention solar power and you’ll probably hear cries of “Solyndra!” Republicans have tried to make the failed solar panel company both a symbol of government waste — although claims of a major scandal are nonsense — and a stick with which to beat renewable energy.
But Solyndra’s failure was actually caused by technological success: the price of solar panels is dropping fast, and Solyndra couldn’t keep up with the competition. In fact, progress in solar panels has been so dramatic and sustained that, as a blog post at Scientific American put it, “there’s now frequent talk of a ‘Moore’s law’ in solar energy,” with prices adjusted for inflation falling around 7 percent a year.
This has already led to rapid growth in solar installations, but even more change may be just around the corner. If the downward trend continues — and if anything it seems to be accelerating — we’re just a few years from the point at which electricity from solar panels becomes cheaper than electricity generated by burning coal.

robot pours drink!

We’re a bunch of robot-o-philes here at likeithateit, principally, because we long for the day when we can laze around by the pool whilst our robotic proxy does all of our work writing blog posts and what have you, (as opposed to our robot overloads hunting us down with nasty killer drones). So this video of Honda’s new Asimo robot, running, running backwards, jumping and then jumping on one foot before pouring a drink from a thermos was greeted with much enthusiasm here in the likeithateit offices….
