Did you miss Glitchet on Friday? Glitchet is now a Monday thing! Instead of closing out the week we'll start it out great. We've got some great stuff in this issue - theoretical discussions about glitch, some very neat videos, and ice cold science.
Wh-wh-what? Glitch theory? That's right - for the very first time, we have original content, published on Glitchet, written by Matthew Austin. This digs into the theoretical aspects of glitch and an initial definition of it, as well as how Ed Grant's work interfaces with those definitions.
Glitchet is collaborating with a group of people who are interested in glitch theory and hoping to start a discussion and write more articles around the topic, so stay tuned!
Mike Pelletier is a cool, weird 3d artist that does a lot of trippy, disconcerting work with by transforming 3d models of people. Thanks for the introduction, Eric!
This is a pretty cool blog post with lots of interactive, in-browser visuals of different types of representations of maps.
Doctor Popular's Glitch Socks
Doctor Popular has been working on some awesome glitch socks that you can buy in four packs - is that sweet or what? He's a self-described game designer, illustrator, tailor, rapper, and super nerd who lives in San Francisco's Mission District. He's also got another Betabrand project in the works that corrupts the Houndstoof print. Take a look at his stuff!
Programs and Science
This is a great, thorough exploration of machine learning and how it actually works in an accessible way.
This is awesome! Basically exactly the technology I've been waiting for to control a symphony of drones like an orchestra conductor turned mad genius.
An interesting look into the viability and technology behind preserving you by making you really, really cold. (Personally, I always figured - sure, it'd be cool to see the future, but boy would I suck in that future if I didn't participate in the time leading up to it!)
Listen to a bunch of really smart people talk about all the crazy theories your friends had after consuming too many mind-altering substances.
I knew I had it. It was like the weird cousin you never talk about. It was so easy to miss, too - I usually find messages there that were sent like, months ago, that I didn't even know about.
Baidu is basically one-upping Snapchat's recent animated face rainbow-vomiting feature.
