Dial Tone by Cole Montminy is a gorgeous animation made entirely of felt

Popkin 8:06 am Sun Oct 1, 2023 Dial Tone is a gorgeous animation made entirely of wool felt, by Cole Montminy. The artist uses felt shapes against an ethereal felt backdrop to depict dream-like scenes. I'm in love with the strange beings and painterly look that this technique creates. I've never seen an animation technique like this one before.

GNU Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary – Slashdot

Posted by EditorDavid on Saturday September 30, 2023 @02:34PM from the join-us-now-and-share-the-software dept. Wednesday the Free Software Foundation celebrated "the 40th anniversary of the GNU operating system and the launch of the free software movement," with an announcement calling it "a turning point in the history of computing. "Forty years later, GNU and free software are even more relevant. While software has become deeply ingrained into everyday life, the vast majority of users do not have full control over it... " On September 27, 1983, a computer scientist named Richard Stallman announced the plan to develop a free software Unix-like operating system called GNU, for "GNU's not Unix." GNU is the only operating system developed specifically for the sake of users' freedom, and has remained true to its founding ideals for forty years. Since 1983, the GNU Project has provided a full, ethical replacement for proprietary operating systems. This is thanks to the forty years of tireless work from volunteer GNU developers around the world. When describing GNU's history and the background behind its initial announcement, Stallman (often known simply as "RMS") stated, "with a free operating system, we could again have a community of cooperating hackers — and invite

A Place at the Table for Everyone Born | Reston, VA Patch

The views expressed here are the author's own.Political campaigns have slogans and themes designed to “sell” the candidate. Television commercials, bumper strips, brochures and flyers attempt with the fewest words and the catchiest jingles to stick in your mind at least until election day. The best message is one that attracts the most viewers and listeners in a way that they might find themselves humming or repeating throughout the day. The problem with this form of campaigning is that the message is probably an over-simplification of issues, may contain misinformation, and may have little to do with real issues. They work, however, and that is why political operatives continue to use them.Some catchy phrases that led to success at the ballot box resulted in some terrible public policies. “End Parole” as a slogan helped candidate George Allen defeat the then Attorney General Mary Sue Terry who was ahead in the polls by suggesting that criminals were being let out of jail and were walking the street. The resulting policy led to Virginia
