Thousands of centuries had passed since Home Sapiens 2.0 left their home planet Earth.

Now the inevitable moment was reached. The last remaining smoker had to battle all living species in the universe to defend his right to keep smoking.

His mind was integrated in a strange space ship, which had been the case ever since a digital dump of his original brain was captured in 2035.

I found this amazing wallpaper here and couldn’t help myself studying it for some time (click it for the large version). It is called blue moon and was created by microbot (David Fuhrer) (website definitely worth checking out). Choose your resolution here if you want to download it. It is part of the desktop collection of Desktopography, who carry a large array of a+ wallpapers (for free).

Europe 2.0: europeana

I wonder if the they did any real sizing before opening this website although 2777 requests per second is a lot obviously. Well… is it? Anyway on the project site we read that the cultural heritage of Europe (3.5 million assets to start with) will be available again in some weeks.

Personally I think they should wait until January. There will undoubtly be more technical problems with the site and around Christmas most people are not available, making it not wise to reopen just before that time.

“The interface will be multilingual. Initially, this may mean that it is available in French, English and German, but the intention is to develop the number of languages available following the launch.”  …. no Dutch while the project is run by a core team based in the national library of the Netherlands, the Koninklijke Bibliotheek. Well you can also satisfy your European arty needs here.

Where I found 100 highlights from the KB Netherlands which kept me interested for a pretty long time.
