This is a non-functioning but clickable demo (built using Carrd) of the sort of thing I wish I had now that I'm off social media: a profile-driven site, with no feed, where people can just update what they're up to or into these days. "Catch up, then log off; made for people, not users." [more inside]
Blocktronics' ACiD Trip won the Freestyle ANSI/ASCII competition at last week's Demosplash 2013 event at Carengie Mellon University. Created by 22 artists, it's apparently the longest ANSI scroller ever at 3,266 lines long. Scroll it yourself right here. For those not hip to the lingo, ANSI is the American National Standards Institute but in this case refers to the 256 character set used in early computer operating systems. It's basically an extension of the usual 128 numbers, letters, and symbols of ASCII. More shapes, the ability to create colors, etc.
