Cool stuff

A tiny pre-holidays coolstuff? Let’s.

Micro chess / DIY [video, mid-length] – a video of someone making a tiny chess set. It’s super impressive, adorable (because TINY) and generally exquisite.

Markus Reugels on 500px [images] – someone doing (among others) very cool pictures of drops and splashes.

It’s Way Too Easy to Get a .gov Domain Name [text] – there IS a quote in there that says “I never said it was legal, just that it was easy”, but I still found it an interesting read 🙂

TasteAtlas [maps]- maps are good, food is good, LET’S MIX BOTH. With subcategories, such as World Cheese Map or World Dessert Map.

The difference between a snafu, a shitshow, and a clusterfuck [text]- it’s all in the title, and I found that piece pretty entertaining, and surprisingly informative 😛

Fraktur and the psychology of type [text] – an article about the fraktur typeface and its association, in particular in Germany, with the Nazis – and the impact of that association in today’s print and calligraphy practice.

Making chocolate colourful – apparently there’s a way to make chocolate shimmer with structural properties. That’s pretty cool 😀

Happy holidays, everyone!
