…It’s Website Wednesday: StreetArtLocator?

StreetArtLocator

The StreetArtLocator (v2) helps you locate street art near you. (Considering the name, the obviousness of that statement is not lost on me…)

With specific tags for graffiti, galleries, paintings, stickers, stencils, sculptures, and installations, it’s a Google Map powered guide to the beautiful art that’s all around you for controversially public consumption.

Just click on your area to see both a location and a picture of the street art that has been spotted and documented. Then, if you’re out and about and come across something that you’d like to share, just snap a pic and add it to the database to help those around you enjoy your find as well.

…iPaper is a PDF killer?

iPaper

Apparently the web world is fed up with PDFs, because alternatives are popping up left and right.

The latest entry into this world is iPaper, which aims to entirely replace the PDF.

The basic idea is that, like a YouTube video, iPaper documents can be embedded into any existing web page through a Flash widget, and can display PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and other document formats without the need for separate readers.

Features include viewing documents without downloading any additional software, monetizing documents with integrated advertisements, social aspects with a built in share functionality, enhanced security, and easy integration.

Edit: Box.net, a free online storage and file sharing site, is one of the first sites to embrace the iPaper technology. You can now view any of your PDF, Word, Excel, or Power Point documents that you have stored on Box.net using iPaper.

…The Whale Hunt is powerfully beautiful?

The Whale Hunt

Each year, the Inupiat Eskimos of Barrow, Alaska are allowed to hunt 22 whales for their yearly supply of food.

To document and preserve this experience, Jonathan Harris tagged along and took 3,214 photographs over the course of seven days, showing everything from his taxi ride to the Newark airport to the butchering of the second whale caught by the hunters.

Photos were taken at five-minute intervals (even while sleeping with the aid of a chronometer), though this “photographic heartbeat” was quickened during moments of high adrenaline.

The end result is a beautiful and powerful tale of a people’s fight to survive using techniques developed by their ancestors long before there was any other way to eat.

…Volcom wants you to kickflip a surfboard?

Kickflip-Off

If snowboarding is not your thing, then perhaps you can win some of Volcom’s cash during their Kickflip-Off contest.

Apparently, no one has ever documented a cleanly landed kickflip on a surfboard, so Volcom is going to give away $10,000 to the first person that can do it, and get it on video.

I, for one, would like to see it, so if you’ve got the surfing skills, then get out there and show your stuff, because kickflip glory awaits.
