…Times turns your RSS into a newspaper?

Times

Times is “a new type of newsreader for Mac OS X Leopard”.

    By rethinking the way you read news, we’ve created the best possible news experience straight from the ground up.

Instead of treating your RSS feeds like emails, Times is designed to present them like a newspaper, with headlines and photos from a variety of sources to guide your way.

Times LogoLike a newspaper, Times allows you to separate feeds into their own areas, create pages for different subjects, and more.

Times also shows the entire article within the program, and formats them all the same for easy reading.

Ready to give RSS a try, but aren’t quite ready to give up your newspaper just yet?

Then Times just might be the perfect solution.

…movingMario makes the plumber real?

movingMario

Keith Lam’s movingMario is a fantastically classic art installation that takes the Mario experience and transfers virtual movement into real world experience.

Of course there’s an artsy explanation for everything, and he probably dives a bit deep into the symbolism of it all, but it’s hard to argue that the results aren’t cool:

…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.
