Edible and Stackable DIY LEGO Gummy Candy | Colossal

Grant Thompson of the King of Random just shared a great tutorial on how to make completely edible gummy LEGO bricks and figures using a mixture of corn syrup, Jello, and gelatin. Using the right molds, the pieces are so precise you can actually build with them. Unlike the chocolate LEGO bricks we featured a few months ago, these look somewhat simple to make.

Rhubarb Prosecco Sparkler | Annie's Eats

Up until now, there were exactly zero rhubarb recipe gracing the pages of this blog. Zero, in the nearly eight (!!!) years I’ve been chattering on about food and drink. I didn’t grow up eating rhubarb so I was never familiar with it. I had some vague idea that it was sour and is supposed to go well with strawberries but that’s pretty much the extent of my knowledge on the topic. Last week, Andrew and I had a special date night out and we went to a wonderful local restaurant Plow & Anchor. The whole meal was truly superb, but the dessert was especially outstanding. As per my usual M.O., I ordered the most interesting sounding thing, which happened to be sweet pea creme brûlée with rhubarb compote. Every bite of it was phenomenal, including the rhubarb compote. Clearly, it is time to expand my rhubarb horizons.

Ukiyo-e Heroes | Home

I first emailed Dave in 2010. My query probably sounded like a lot of comments he gets – something to the effect of, “I want your life. I want to be you. Can I come to Japan and meet you?” Surprisingly, Dave got back to me very quickly. He was courteous, despite my stalker-ish professions of hero worship. He even called me on the phone one day, and listened to my aspirations as an artist. We threw some collaborative ideas around, but nothing really materialized from that first contact.

Reading Between the Lines / Gijs Van Vaerenbergh | ArchDaily

‘Reading between the lines’ is a project by the duo Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, a collaboration between young Belgian architects Pieterjan Gijs (Leuven, 1983) and Arnout Van Vaerenbergh (Leuven, 1983). Since 2007, they have been realizing projects in public space together that start from their architectural background, but have an artistic intention. Their projects do not always originate out of the initiative of a classical client, for example, and carry a large degree of autonomy. Their primary concerns are experiment, reflection, a physical involvement with the end result and the input of the viewer.

Improving OpenStreetMap with probe data | Mapbox

We’re building a new data processing pipeline for analyzing GPS probe data streams. This infrastructure will let us improve the map in new ways and at huge scale. Here’s the first look at how it works. Streaming GPS tracks are overlaid against our streets data, allowing us to identify where there is activity, like people running or driving, but no trail or road data in our map. When we find a place like this, we queue it up for our data team to look at in to-fix, our open source micro-tasking tool. Once we verify that a path or street is missing, we add it to OpenStreetMap and our map is updated in under 10 minutes.

These Pretty City Maps Were Drawn By Our Paths Through Them | Fast Company | Business + Innovation

It’s no secret that tourists love to snap pictures on the Staten Island ferry. Or that photographers will wander the side streets of east London capturing the latest street art. Everyone knows that Paris’s visitor-friendly arrondissements are flooded with selfie sticks on weekends. Now, a new visualization of more than a decade of Flickr photographs shows exactly what paths photographers make when taking pictures.

SuperSlicr v2 | MightyMeta

This is an update to my Photoshop action that streamlines the process of exporting images for the web and iOS.

CSS Noise | MightyMeta

This post looks at a way to add a subtle noise effect to HTML elements using CSS. Using this technique is of interest because it doesn’t require use of an image editor, weighs in at just a little over 2K and doesn’t generate any extra HTTP requests.

Library of Babel

The Library of Babel is a place for scholars to do research, for artists and writers to seek inspiration, for anyone with curiosity or a sense of humor to reflect on the weirdness of existence - in short, it’s just like any other library. If completed, it would contain every possible combination of 1,312,000 characters, including lower case letters, space, comma, and period. Thus, it would contain every book that ever has been written, and every book that ever could be - including every play, every song, every scientific paper, every legal decision, every constitution, every piece of scripture, and so on. At present it contains 1,024,640 volumes.

Responsible Social Share Links — Jonathan Suh

Removing third-party social share scripts and using social share URLs will make your site leaner and faster. However, there are some limitations to using traditional share URLs (for example you can’t set custom captions and descriptions with Facebook’s; therefore, you’d have to use Facebook’s SDK and Feed Dialog, or not being able to show the like/tweet/share count) but unless it’s necessary, the benefits of not loading third-party scripts outweight the cons.
