This is part of a series I put together trying to see how far I could go playing with simple symmetries. I’m not going to moan about how I haven’t been posting, but let you know everything I’ve been doing recently. I’ve been moving a number of wordpress sites from apache to nginx, I’m evaluating scholarship applications, preparing several presentations at my day job covering server performance and the migration we are going to do to ASP.NET MVC. On top of all that I just had an intense blast at SXSWi. Here are some of the notes from the panels I went to.
These guys use four transformations with simple rotation parameters. All I changed is the scaling factor of the two central transformations and their centers. It shows how the nature and feeling of the image can change dramatically with just a few little parameter changes.
In the mean time, I’ve been playing around with angularjs, plus have been installing laminate floors in my house, and I ran into How to fold a Julia Fractal a few weeks ago. What a fantastic use of 3d at the top of the page, though it doesn’t scroll well on any of my systems. It’s inspired me to rethink my approach for building interactive demos, and the UI of this site. Fun stuff ahead.
