Fink's Links #32

Another week uncoils itself from the present and prepares to collapse into temporal oblivion, and (just to save them from the singularity that roars after us as we fly just quickly enough into the future) I'm pulling these links along with us for a while -

Firstly, a nice piece on the future of photography (with some surprising developments in the pipeline) from New Scientist...

A staggeringly effective warning sign...(one would imagine)... ;)

Now let's do a bit of urban exploration and see how entropy is treating an abandoned Grand Central station in the former USSR...(page loads a bit slow, so be patient)...

Some really very clever Atari 2600-style cartridge fronts done for modern games (like GTA, Bioshock and Portal)...

Some pre-and-post comparison shots of the effect of Hurricane Ike's arrival...

Check out what Singapore airlines did with their brand new airbus A380...rather a nice way to travel (if one absolutely must board an aircraft)!

An excellent guide (containing the sagely advice "Don't try this") to using Thermite to securely wipe your hard drive...

A startlingly accurate pie chart...

Guy photographs himself every day for 17 years (time lapse movie)...

The birth of the emoticon - 18th of September, 1982 (at 11:44am)...

...and finally an extremely painful ad placement fail...ouch...! >;o

More of the same sort of thing same time next week and previous weeks links can be found here... ;)

Why has nobody moved into the railway station? Imagine the description on the estate agent's website!

Hmmm, really not sure, are there homeless in the Soviet Union? I thought that sort of thing wasn't supposed to happen? ;)
