An infinite number of monkeys

Scanning the subject lines in my spam folder always makes me think of the infinite monkey theory: an infinite number of monkeys typing on typewriters for an infinite amount of time will eventually produce the complete works of William Shakespeare. So maybe someday reading my spam titles will yield something great.

Here's today:

Artist, designer, programmer focusing on interactive media. This is the guy I'd like to be when I grow up, except that of course it's too late for me. Maybe he can inspire you.

Lots of great stuff. I especially like You and We, The Narrative You Anticipate You May Produce, The Art of Modern Rock, well actually just about everything I clicked on at his website.

OK, you should check out Road Trip, too. It's not an earth-shaking new idea (see Bill Klingensmith's Drive Project, among others), but putting the camera in the back seat for a drive across America makes it better. You see not only the country but the interaction between the two driver/riders.

Because there are 12,000 pictures (one every 10 seconds for 5 days) it takes awhile to watch, playing at 15 frames per second. I really would have liked an animated map that showed where you were at any point in the film.
